Green Olive Wedding Reception Paphos Cyprus

The Green Olive - Secret Garden Taverna


This Charming Courtyard Taverna really is a hidden secret right in the heart of Paphos! If you didn’t know where it was you may just pass by without noticing. As you walk into the rustic taverna and out into its beautiful courtyard gardens you can instantly see why it’s called the Secret Garden. Its looks and style are the perfect representation of a truly authentic Cypriot taverna, with its stone walls and trailing flowers making this beautiful garden an idyllic choice for private weddings.

Take your vows under the taverna stone arch covered with vines, jasmines, and the colourful blossoms of the bougainvilleas, setting the scene perfectly for your photographer to capture every amazing moment. The courtyard comes with complete set up for your wedding including chairs & chair covers, ceremony table etc. to ensure your wedding feels that little more special. You can after your ceremony enjoy a drinks reception followed by your wedding dinner enjoyed in a traditionally Cypriot manner surrounded by your family & friends, and the menu options provided by the taverna are mouth-watering! Being located in the center of Paphos the taverna gives you the added extra of only being 5 minutes away from some of the most beautiful beaches for some amazing sunset photos by the azure Mediterranean.

After your wedding dinner you can dance & enjoy the rest of you evening until VERY late in your own private entertainment suite, which could be accompanied by one of our professional DJ’s and maybe the Traditional Cypriot dancers? Or perhaps a live band? The options are almost endless. The Green Olive Taverna has all the feel of a Country Inn right in the heart of Paphos!
