“Great traditional meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

If you ever get to Paphos, and i would reccommend that you do at least once, then you must visit this jewel in the crown of the city.
It is a real traditional family restaurant offering you beautful meals at affordable prices. The portions are out of this world so you need to starve all day to finish of the mothers home made Mousaka.
The family are warm and welcoming and they are very very friendly.
Don't miss out. Go sit under their beautiful grapevines and enjoy true home cooked food in a tradional setting.
Thanks again cant wait to get back.
Alan

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

We have been to Cyprus 3 times and our visit to the Melania restaurant was our first . I wish we had found it before . It has a relaxed atmosphere and friendly hosts . The food was very fresh and delicious....A warning to all though if you order the Moussaka for your evening meal do not have any breakfast or lunch before hand ! Very generous portions indeed . We are hoping to go back next year and would recomend this restaurant.

“The only place where the food reminds ... the old good times !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2012

Melania Restaurant is they only place all over Cyprus manage to go against economic crisis !!! Not only they handle to offer homegrown vegetables, potatoes, fruits even village wine from the restaurant garden but also they offer the cheapest meal all over the island …With EURO 6.00 we had an offer to try Gammon steak or sausages with vegetables, chips, and veggies and then fruits……Quality and Quantity are on the maximum!!!
MEZE is perfect and all homemade and very fresh…
And all this under the grape vine yard
They owners are locals and they are the same 25 years now!

“Good traditional food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

We have just returned from Cyprus and while there we visited Melania Restaurant. The food we had was excellent. The Moussaka one of our party had was huge and delicious. We also had chicken, lamb chops and the kleftiko. All main courses were tasty and well cooked. There were also plenty of salad and veg supplied and a big plate of freshly cooked chips, made from their own organic potatoes. We also had their own red and white wine which was very nice. It was such a nice change to eat good fresh traditional food, rather than the normal typical English food served at a lot of the other establishments. The surroundings were very nice under the vines and the family who own Melania's are very friendly and the service was excellent. Will certainaly be back if we return to Cyprus.
