I have been there with family and friends for lunch. Maria warm welcome was the first thing to notice. The place is really nice offering great Cyprus traditional food. The meze plates are more than plenty and really tasty. The prices are reasonable and the...More

Six of us went here with a couple who are local. We all had the meze and it was fantastic. Every plate was a culinary treat and good drinks to accompany. Maria couldn’t have done more for us and we met the whole family. Will...More

We eat and drink in Marias regularly when in Kouklia. The family are lovely friendly and welcoming. So I was very upset to be in the taverna when a party left with a disgruntled attitude. The group had seemed to be having a lovely time...More

Another amazing meal at Efraims. Maria recognised us immediately even though it was 18 months since our last visit. This is always our favourite Mezze and we try and visit at least twice during our holidays. Never had a bad meal here and service is...More

Nothing to say apart from AMAZING The owners ( Family ) are the best! All foods wherever you have the Meze or normal food is ALWAYS nice and fresh. The village of Kouklia is a proper Cypriot Village away from your normal tourist hotspots ....More

Visited whilst staying at the beautiful Aphrodite Hills resort. This is the nicest Cypriot food I have eaten. Wonderful dips and halloumi. The kofta was home made and delicious. At the end we were treated to the most syrupy baclava. The owner was lovely and...More

There are a lot of very nice looking restaurants within the square at Kouklia and we went to Marias on a themed dance night which run throughout the tourist season and take in all of them. She does a very decent buffet meal... More
