  • Vienna Cafe Paphos, Cyprus: First and last time

    by schanett Written Oct 12, 2008

    The Vienna Cafe in Paphos, Cyprus looks amazing from outside with the beautiful colours and decorations, so I wanted to try how it is from the inside.
    I wish I didn`t! We have waited to get the menu for about 10 minutes, although the waitresses looked at us many times, but nobody cared. They were sitting on the sofas chatting to other customers, guessing their friends.
    When finally the male waiter brought the menu, we ordered 2 coffees and 2 desserts. I was happy to found a dessert which said had strawberries and rosted almonds on it.
    Disappointment again....
    1. The water I ordered was out of stock
    2. My coffe was a single espresso although it clearly said on the menue it was double espresso in it with milk and something else (no milk either)
    3. My dessert had no almond flakes whatsoever on it and the strawberries were from a can, melting from the sugar syrup :-(
    4. My friend ordered a cold coffee latte which came without milk, when we asked to bring some milk, we got some boiled one!

    When I asked the waitress why wasn`t there any almond on my dessert, I was told : "Next time say you want almonds before you finish eating it" WOW! Why would I have to say it when it states on the menu???????
    I also said I expected something more austrian-style if it`s called Vienna Cafe... She said: " Well this place has nothing to do with Vienna" WOW! Amazed again on how she doesn`t care about the image of the place.

    So I am asking myself:
    Why do they call a place Vienna Cafe if there is nothing from Austria?
    Why do they employ these rude waitresses who have absolutely no idea of customer service?
    Why was the owner of the shop smoking cigar and sitting from one table to the next bringing his children and letting them play on the floor?
    Is this good customer service?
    Is this like a coffee shop in Vienna?
    I bet the owner has never been there, I have many times and they are very famous for their service and food.

    Make it short: this is a place which I will never visit again.

    I would like to hear about other people`s experience about this coffee shop.

    Thanks for reading my comment.

  • various: Don't believe the Guide Books

    by johnka Written Apr 29, 2008

    Guide books recommend various restaurants but when you go they have closed, changed ownership or simply gone downhill. Take your courage in your hands and try any one.

    As an example Rough Guide recommends Tyriminhos as 'possibly the best fish restaurant' in Paphos. It served musssels - turned out to be frozen green-lipped as available from your local cut-price supermarket. Dover Sole with special garlic sauce was so smopthered in sauce as to destroy the delicate taste of the sole. Service was by young students who had little idea of the food. Very disappointing.

    Favorite Dish: The bottle of Keo beer.

    nikos tyrimos fish taverna: indifferent fish and seafood

    by call_me_rhia Updated Feb 3, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Everyone in town, and all guidebooks, seem to recommend this fish restaurant... a simple taverna very popular with locals and visitors - in fact when we went there, it was mainly packed with locals, which we took as a good sign.

    Favorite Dish: The meal was fairly indifferent... the speciality is the Fish meze - a huge selection of fish mezes (over 20, if I recall correctly) but you cannot choose them. We asked about them, and most of them cosisted of fried fish. We declined.

    I don't remember what fish we had - but it was nothing sepcial . in particular the grilled sardines were tasteless. We had the feeling that despite its popularity the fish was not the freshest on the market. In all fairness everyone else seem to be happy about their meals, and about 95% of the customers had ordered fried fish.

    Hondros: Greek Taverna

    by clouds111 Updated Oct 12, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A nice Cypriot typ taverna serving traditional local food at reasonable prices. There always seemed to be a crowd of people here so that's a good sign. The tables are set under a canapy of vines so it's quite a nice setting. The food is really tasty and service is good although waiters lack a few smiles.

    Favorite Dish: Kleftiko

    Feta's Corner: Meze meze meze

    by clouds111 Updated Oct 12, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Feta's Corner is a treat in Paphos. In the older part of town Ktima, the restaurant is set in a sweet area with a couple of fountains surrounding it. The tables are all set out on the pavement, some of which are on the opposite side of the road the the kitchen, so can be funny watching the waiters going back and forth across the road with hands full of food. Despite being on a road there is a lovely atmosphere about the place and the service is efficient and attentive.

    The best thing to go for here is the Meze as you get to try almost everything on the menu. I would reccommend skipping lunch and leaving extra room in the waistbands as the dishes keep coming and coming. Absolute delight.

    Favorite Dish: Meze and the Stifado. Oh and the Halloumi is GORGEOUS!

    The Pelican: Harbour restaurants

    by clouds111 Updated Oct 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It takes a lot for me to do a bad review of a restaurant but here we go... The Pelican sells itself as a Seafood restaurant but as you can imagine as a harbour restaurant it a bit of a tourist trap. The menu caters for everyone's taste, from pasta, burgers, seafood, so called Cypriot food and plenty more. The menu took about 15-20 minutes to read through, so this should be warning enough! I thought I'd try something traditional so went for the Moussaka and truely wish I hadn't, it was so tastless and the chips that they had served with it were like rubber. I'm afraid to say that I've had more tasty mircowave Moussaka's at home. I had to send it back but the owner kindly didn't charge for it.

    My friends had the seafood Meze and although nothing really wrong with it there was nothing more to it than grilled fish etc with no seasoning.

    The atmosphere here was not great either, with tables crammed in among the other numerous restaurants serving the same dishes. If you are looking for good traditional Cypriot food or a romantic night out than stay away for the harbour and The Pelican.

    Pambis Diner: Snacks and Breakfast - Hard to Beat

    by cappielow1 Written Apr 25, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pambis Diner provides a great place for a quick snack/breakfast or evening meal as you wish, or just a rest stop and quick drink on your way home, particularly for those who are staying in the Universal area of Kato Paphos. The menu provides a range of snacks, burgers and full meals at very reasonable prices.

    Favorite Dish: "Effiel Tower" - this is listed as a snack, BUT, provides a full tank.
    This particular delicacy consists of a layer of French Toast topped with two large sausages, another layer of French toast topped with a couple of rashers of bacon, another layer of French Toast all topped off with baked beans.
    I know it's not the healthiest of dishes but, boy it tastes good!!

    Stay away from the chips though, They try and make "Real Chips" (rather than frozen) unfortunately it's not happening for them.

    Michaels: Great Meze

    by cappielow1 Written Apr 25, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Michaels is a Cypriot owned and family run restaurant. Michael does the cooking and his wife and sons wait on the tables. Thay are all friendly and have time for a chat or passing word no matter how busy they are.
    This is a great restaurant who advertise "the best Meze in Cyprus", but don't they all!, this however must come close.
    Michaels is set in a quiet area just off Poseidonous Avenue and prices are about average.

    Favorite Dish: Meat Meze

    Pavaroti's restaurant as you can tell by the name is an Italian restaurant around 1.5km from Paphos Harbour. It is a small, quiet yet well run restaurant with 6 tables (i think if i can remember) so its an ideal place for them quiet nights out. Its an easy place to go for a nice Italian meal aswell as to spend the night relaxing. The restaurant is ideal for both famililes and couples and the food is definatly above average.

    This place is really hard to find, as its off the main Posidonous Avenue. When actually in the restaurant (it was quite quiet when we was there) it is very good service and we found the menu to not be over-priced. The food was done really quickly, and you get a good meal out of it aswell. It is worth a try if you like you Indian food, and the food is excellent, so it is definatly worth finding if it sounds like something that would like to try.

    Viva Cyprus: Set menus for CYP6.95

    by kayleigh06 Updated Apr 10, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The food here was lovely! On our first night here we headed for this place, and we thought that after eating here nowhere could beat the food!

    On the set menu's you could get a 3 course meal, and you just choose what you want, and then you pay CYP6.95 for all 3 meals!

    Favorite Dish: I had a Lamb Kleftiko, and bearing in mind (if you're lucky) whenever you have a lamb dish its usually a couple of small lamb chops which is usually mostly bone, well... here its a mountain of Lamb! And the plates were massive aswell!
