Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Arrived with a Facebook booking, though didn't seem bothered whether or not we had one. Pleasant service. Great menunand decent wine list. Goid Cypriot hors d'oeuvres. Nice fillet steak, though the vegetables were a bit overdone. They do do several Greek classics, and the moussaka...didn't disappoint. The dry white wine was relatively inexpensive and excellent. Recommended.More

Fantastic restaurant with excellent service and food from Cyprus. Nancy, Pambo and the staff are very kind and super professional. The atmosphere is very unique and it feels like being at home. The selection of dishes is very good and of excellent quality. Also they...have very good wine ! After staying around in Pafos, it’s for me the best place to go for sure. I highly recommend it !More

We went to visit after seeing all the good reviews on here. The staff were lovely, the lentils on the house were phenomenal. We had the octopus, which was very good, followed by the kleftiko and the beef stifado, both made with quality meat with...very little fat. Overall a very pleasant experience and relaxing atmosphere.More

If you are in Paphos you have to visit Windmill Restaurant. It was by far the best food we had on this island. Everything was fresh, beautiful und delicious. The service was also perfect. Thanks again for everything.

I must have walked past this restaurant 1000 times over the last few years, but had never ventured in until last night. I won't walk past it again, I'll be walking to it ! This is probably the best traditional restaurant I've been in in...a long time. From the beautiful lightly toasted bread with olive oil and oregano to the cheesecake I had for dessert, everything was excellent. The garlic mushroom starter, kleftiko served on a bed of creamy mashed potato with fresh vegetables ( which were hot, not luke warm or cold as they so often are ), to the cheesecake (amazing), all were perfect. Located a few minutes walk from the harbour, it's worth it to eat in peace.More

We first came here about 20 years ago and always loved it. For a variety of reasons we had not been for several years so it was lovely to come back this year and went twice. The food is amazing, the service excellent, it was...brilliant to see Nancy again after so many years and also to have the 'special coffee' again prepared now by Charlie rather than Chris. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone that wants a quality meal.More

We have been going to the Windmill for 10 years now. The food and service has never faltered. This is a family business with Nancy and Charlie serving and their parents in the kitchen. The food is so flavoursome and plentiful. Their meze is amazing...with lots of variety Definitely the best in Paphos Not to be missed!More

Visited on Saturday night for a birthday meal for my mum. Nancy and family were amazing from me messaging her before we got there, to when we left. They made my mum feel like a queen. The food was amazing, the gluten free among us...had a wide choice of dishes and really appreciated the gluten free bread they had made for them. Would definately recommend.More
