Lovely family friendly

This is a lovely restaurant in a great location of Paphos. We have eaten here several times on our trips to Paphos including 15 of us for my Nanas 80th! the grilled meats are really nice. It has a very Mediterranean feel to the restaurant.

We have been in the Paphos area for a week, eaten out every day,and have enjoyed every meal until this miserable experience. This is a tourist trap for coach parties with a lousy ambiance and poor food. One of the waiters amused himself by making nazi salutes behind a party of German tourists, which we thought to be in rather... More

This traditional restaurant has been in business since 1953. The staff are very welcoming and helpful in food selection. Go for a meze and heed the advice of the waitress regarding pitta bread!

We were recommended this restaurant by a local shop owner and tried it twice during our visit. (The name 'XΟΝΔΡΟΣ' or 'XΟΝΤΡΟΣ' in Greek means 'fat or big'.) It is very popular with the locals and, despite being located immediately behind the bus station, has a secluded patio with a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. My husband highly recommends both the...

We liked the ambiance, excellent food and service, it's a pity their drinks are so expensive. Please don't be so greedy with your drink prices Hondros!

Had evening meal here four times during a recent one-week break. Choice of restaurants at this time of year is obviously much more restricted than in high season. Nice atmosphere inside with wood fires burning in both of the dining rooms. Friendly staff. The food was perfectly good though not memorable. During one visit the staff had their work cut... More

I'm always visiting this place when I'm in Paphos (2 times a year). End of 2014 we went there 2 times. Service was better in the past. I didn't have the impression that they really cared about us as repeat customers, my company is Cypriot. Lot of people work there, but you have to search to find somebody if you... More

There house wines are perfect both... More

Front of house was excellent but let down by the food. The waitress upsold us a village salad, when you pay 6 euros for a plate of salad you expect a bit more than around 30 grammes of Feta and 5 (yes only 5 black olives). Adequate but not generous amounts of salad leaves, cucumber and tomato. Definitely a austerity... More
