Overpriced and taxed twice

We have always thought somewhat expensive for average food.They have recently introduced a €9.95 menu which we found average though sweet choice only Ice cream or Cream Caramel.Final straw was whe tax was added to bill even though menu said vat and taxes included.I wanted to complain but rest of party deterered me.Won't return.

Good meze

Set back a little way from the “main drag” of the tourist area, you need to seek out Apomero. Thanks to the internet, we did. It rewards your success with a particularly decent meze.

As often the case, the cold dishes were the best of the bunch - the bread, olives, tahini and two salads were of particular note. Also, a simple single mouthful of a sundried tomato, topped with feta and coriander was lovely.

Moving on to the hot dishes. A slice of courgette in crisp batter; filo stuffed with garlic, beef & an unidentified (but pleasant) spicing - perhaps smoked paprika; aubergines in a rich tomato sauce. These were all excellent items, the other 3 or 4 only so-so.

The fish offerings were a disappointment - king prawn; a large mussel; cod in garlic sauce. All suffered from being obviously previously frozen and then overcooked. We left most of these.

Finally, amongst the savoury items, plainly grilled chicken, beef and pork kebabs were well cooked - all retaining a juiciness and with good flavour.

And, really finally, a cake-like dessert - heavy with cinnamon, nuts and syrup.

Service had been excellent with the delivery of food being well paced throughout the evening. Not rushed but with just enough break between new dishes arriving for you to catch your breath - but not before you start finger tapping in irritation.

Food, half bottle of wine, a Keo and a couple of bottles of water came to just on €55 which we thought excellent value for a thoroughly pleasant evening.

Still Going Strong

Doesn't Time Fly, first reviewed the Apomero in 2006, still our first port of call every trip over. Love the Meze, probably still the best in Paphos, but there is a lot more to the place than that. Food is traditional, well cooked and served in a friendly atmosphere. Judging by the amount of locals that use the place it must have a decent reputation amongst them. The brothers have got a winning recipe...good food, served simply and always happy to have a chat, they don't change it and why should they..it works!!! See you again in November boys!

Meze - delicious

The Apomero is my local, I have to walk past every night if I'm going to the harbour or Bar Street. The mezes are excellent, staff welcoming, the prices are slightly more than some places but the quality is better. Greek night on a Friday is fun if you are with friends. Always try to visit when I'm in town.

Great Meze and food in general

The Apomero is the nearest restaurant to our house on Paradise Gardens 2. We are very lucky, because it is also one of the best restaurants in Kato Paphos and we have tried most of them over the years. It's like a village taverna in the town and their mixed Meze is top notch and very authentic. They get lots of local Cypriots in there, as well as tourists and like so many people we always return. It's run by two brothers and their business partner, who is the chef. We have always had a consistently good meal at a reasonable price. Thouroughly recommended!
