Just a few minutes from the harbour front where the guys try to drag you in sits the gourmet taverna lovely outside seating area with shade and a fantastic menu offering a lunch menu and a dinner menu we opted for the dinner menu and...it was fantastic my wife opted for 3 vegetarian starters as a main course and they were all excellent I opted for the suckling pig ( probably the best I’ve ever had) a slight word of warning the portions are very generous. If you count the quality of food and service as part of a good meal then this was the best value meal I’ve had in PaphosMore

Sitting in the dappled Cypriot sunshine after what must be the best value set lunch in Paphos! We were actually heading elsewhere when we spotted this place and the charming owner. So, we changed our plan and sat down. The set lunch is sharing a...Village Salad, fantastic home made bread, either Moussaka or Meat Balls in Tomato Sauce and Greek Yoghurt with Honey. They also do home made lemonade as we’ll as the usual drinks. Absolutely outstanding for €22 + drinks. Sad we only discovered this place on our last day. If in Paphos don’t miss it!More

Family run restaurant with excellent home cooked food. A shorter but more authentic menu than many of the other harbour front places and all the better for it. Outstanding quality food and very engaging staff. Good wine choices (both local and imported) which the staff...are happy to guide you on.More

My wife and I had a lovely honeymoon meal here. There are lots of choices in Paphos with some great rustic tavernas but we wanted something a little special one night and so chose here. We really enjoyed our meal of calimari and baked halloumi...for starters and suckling pig and stifado for main, both of which were excellent! Eva also treated us to a piece of the orange cake for dessert which was delicious. A really enjoyable evening with great food and service.More

Absolutely lovely both did and ambience. We visited the first time and had authentic Cypriot dishes - they were all incredible. So much so that we decided that we really wanted to visit again the same week! Second time it was warm enough to sit...outside and we enjoyed an amazing prawn linguine and a truffle linguine.

This was our second visit in two nights. A fantastic meal both nights. Great service and plenty of time to enjoy food without being rushed. One night Smyrna meatballs which were delicious as a starter followed by duck. A treat! Tonight we had courgette cakes...and saganaki prawns followed by suckling pig. How we managed to miss this place in the last 5 years I don't know but would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for real Cypriot cooking. Orange cake was to die for! Well done Gourmet Taverna!More

Food was amazing, service was excellent, very friendly and attentive. That citrus sauce with the salmon was soooo good. Had a glass of the house white which complemented it beautifully. Great ambience with indoor and outside seating. Got tempted by dessert - the semolina cake...- Maria’s Cake was incredible - so light and refreshing and a wonderful way to end the meal.
