Traditional and quaint

Located less than 100m from the bus station in Paphos port, this traditional taverna was delightful and friendly. Most of the seating is outdoors which added to the atmosphere. Food is freshly made and not everything comes with chips which is a real bonus.

Located just back from the harbour, Hondros is really a taste of old Cyprus - tables set under vines, a big old clay oven and roasting pit at entrance and typical Cypriot food - what's not to like. Have tried various dishes from the menu and all are very good - the aubergine Al Forno is particularly superb but we... More

We ate grilled sheftalia (Cyprus sausage) grilled mushrooms, calamari, yemista and mousaka. Everything was delicious. We chose a bottle of local Tsangarides Cabernet which was very good! The staff were busy but we never felt neglected. it was one of the most pleasant & relaxed meals we had in Cyprus.

Love this restaurant it is more like one of the old tavernas serving traditional Cypriot dishes - Kleftico, squid etc. It states to be one of the oldest in Cyprus. The food is relish and they often have artist playing music while you eat, very pleasant.

Visited twice as the food was so good. It is traditional fare and the staff are attentive without being 'over the top' . Would highly recommend

We ate here twice during our stay, the first was a Sunday when we were looking forward to kleftiko and suckling pig but unfortunately they had sold out of both so we were a bit disappointed. My second choice was a pork chop and my husband had meatballs both of which were OK. The second time we went for lunch,... More

I had the suckling pig and it was fantastic, the staff were also very friendly and helpful. Most restaurants in the area around Hondros are tacky, touristy eats but this felt very traditional.

Authentic simple dark taverna. Tahini was ok but lamb chops were from a very old lamb, probably as old as the taverna. Young lamb do not have so much fat. Hope to remember this place when visiting next time Paphos to have lunch elsewhere.

We both had the barbecued lamb chops. They were delicious. So were the fried calamari we shared as a starter. Rustic atmosphere outside. Fairly quiet and set back from the main road and cool. The people were nice. We enjoyed a pleasant lunch. Yes there were a few cats around but I would challenge earlier reviewers to point to any... More
