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.

Went following a search on trip advisor. We’re not disappointed. Cannelloni starters were delicious. Mains of swordfish and grilled king prawns were excellent. A restaurant that doesn’t serve chips with everything!!!! Veg and potatoes. Fantastic. Excellent value for excellent food.

Booked via email, and got a prompt response. Situated some way off the main road into town from the airport, a few hundred metres up a side street, with other restaurants close by. Greeted by the delightful host, and given a prime window table. Great...menu, with at least eight local specialities, plus a variety of meat and fish dishes. The grilled halloumi was superb. The tavas main was excellent - lamb kebabs coming with shallots and other vegetables. There was some perfectly cooked rice, and a delightful gratinated potato dish to share. The sea bass fillets were super too, as were the vegetable accompiments. The apple pie dessert came with nice ice cream. The pastry was a little heavy, but tasted great. An inexpensive small wine list provided a lovely dry white. Excellent fare, inexpensive, and should be far higher in the Tripadvisor pcking order.More

So I searched for the best restaurants in Paphos and Michael’s House came as a recommendation. I looked at the menu and was confident that my son and I (both really fussy eaters) and my mum would have a good dinner. I booked a reservation...and it was confirmed with 20 minutes via email. We arrived and were welcomed with open arms - the genuine hospitality was truly amazing, so thank you! We ordered and devoured our staters (feta cheese & tomato, chicken kebab, prawns and cannelloni) followed by our mains of steak and sea bass. Everything was cooked well - flavoursome and to our order of being ‘well done’. Dessert was a shared banana split between my mum and son and they loved it too. We are super pleased with our choice and would highly recommend. We saw Michael himself and his son was really friendly. Definitely worth a visit!More

Good food. Good service. A special evening out! For some reason, Trp Advisor wants more words, so as to fill 100 characters but they are not needed.

Lovely end to our holiday. Food was delicious and staff friendly but unobtrusive. Two of our party had the suckling pig which was tender & tasty one had lamb cutlets which again were tasty & well cooked.

Excellent service and authentic Cypriot/greek food which was exactly what we were looking for. Waiters were very friendly and enjoyed a bit of banter. Portion sizes were very good and fully recommend visiting as a chance to get out of the all inclusive hotel buffets!

We had an excellent dinner here on the night we arrived in Paphos. We were in a lamb mood, I had a lamb and pepper dish which was great with a of bonus of chili heat. We also had a very large and delicious lamb...shank. Fortunately we had shared a mixed dip starter (tzatziki, hummus, tahini, taromasalata), which was very tasty and left room for all the lamb. The restaurant is run by an extended family. Very friendly, with a nice ambience. Would be happy to go back again.More

Had a lovely fish meze platter for 2 here, excellent service, food was amazing, and got to hear the story of the restaurant's origins from Michael's son. We think your dad must be very proud of what you have done with the place.

This restaurant was recommended to me by my parents, who have eaten here previously. I enjoyed it so much that I went back on a second consecutive night. The food is simply excellent, authentic food of excellent quality. All the staff were very welcoming, and...instantly made me feel comfortable. There’s a really nice atmosphere here, great menu choice, great value and quality food with excellent service. If you like chocolate I’d highly recommend the chocolate lava - perhaps one of the best deserts I’ve ever had! I will definitely return when I go back to Paphos later this year.More

Our second visit to this restaurant in 3 days, the staff are very friendly and welcoming, the restaurant is immaculately clean and well set out and the food is amazing. First visit my husband had the sea bass and I had chicken kebabs both served...with vegetables and the most amazing roast potatoes- we also shared a beautiful tiramisu! Second visit I decided on the stifado and my husband the moussaka (no roast potatoes this time :( ) the side salad and potato which came with it were also great ! My husband and I agreed that both dishes were the best we had had (although my husband did have food envy for the calamari ordered by the people on the next table because it looked and smelt delicious 🤤! We would definitely go back again and certainly recommend it - thank you to the chef and staff for a wonderful experienceMore

The food is some of the finest that my wife and I have eaten in Cyprus.The flavours are distinctive and refined whilst the presentation is complimentary to the dish. The Chefs mussels in the ouzo based sauce are a must have. Service was friendly and...attentive. a delightful change not to have to pour out wine during the meal. The Baclava is the softest and most delightful ever!More

One of the attractions of Michael’s is the menu..which offers much more than the traditional Cypriot taverna., yet able to supply all of that too. A family business and very welcoming, pleasant ambience. Our meals were very well prepared and tasty. (Why many still serve...potatoes together with rice is a mystery. Which national tradition does this emulate? I am told UK..but where?) However we are less enthusiastic about the carafe red wine, and the minimal millilitres of brandy were not in the best Cypriot tradition.More

I’m not sure but they are celebrating 40 years this year. If it isn’t the same restaurant you are referring to then you must visit as it is superb and I cannot wait to go back this year when I’m in Cyprus
