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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went to Happy Island after seeing a 5 star review for them online. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit. We ordered the meze for two and the food was delicious. Very friendly service and family friendly. We went back to the restaurant on...our last night and the food and service was equally as good as the first visit.More

Myself and my wife went here for lunch before leaving paphos and we would both 100% recommend a visit our waitress was amazing and the food was equally amazing probably the best steak we have both had. Shame we only visited before leaving as we...found other places in paphos to be quite disappointing despite good reviews. Do not skip past this restaurant with its great food and staff.More

Nice traditional Cypriot restaurant. Friendly staff and good choice on the menu. I had sword fish, my wife had mixed grill and my mum had chicken al a creme. Came with fries, baked potato, steamed veg. Massive portions, had to take left overs away with...us for lunch tomorrow! Served complimentary warm pitta and bread rolls with butter and olive paste. When we asked for the bill, we were served with some fresh fruit, nice touch. Recommend trying the restaurant.More

We fell for the 3 courses for 12.50 schtick thinking, maybe they want us in to buy more. Horrible! My Dolmades starter was frankly disgusting - I don't know if it was bad or burnt oil but it smelt awful. There were weird things inside-...small hard things in just one? I had Dolmades round the corner in another restaurant which was delicious. This was like old burnt cigars they picked up off the street and boiled in 2 year old oil. Main course - mixed grill. 1 skewer of ?pork? inedible gristle pieces. 1 drumstick I literally could get NOTHING edible off of. 1 small very dried pork chop. 1 ball of minced meat I was afraid to eat... Topped off for desert with 3 delightful small scoops of supermarket icecream. I guess we deserved it expecting anything edible for 12.50 each! They did try hard unsucessfully to upsell us otherthings though and the servers were friendly.More

We ate five times over a period of two weeks at this restaurant, and I can highly recommend it. Service is first class, food is delicious and I can't speak highly enough about it. Local Cypriot meals are fabulous, and the kleftiko on Sunday and...Wednesday is a must.More

We paid cash but this is a very touristy area so I cannot imagine that they would not accept cards.
