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... read more

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

Went here on our last night having admired it from the outside as a traditional Greek taverna. We weren't disappointed! Gorgeous building with lots of historical photographs on the wall.Beautiful meal! I had Kleftiko and then baklava(served warm with ice cream-yum) and my partner had chicken souvla cooked on a charcoal spit. Can't wait to visit this restaurant again!

We would not normally have found this place but were recommended and directed here by the staff at the bus station, where we were going to take the late afternoon airport bus. It is in a quiet spot a few hundred metres from the harbour's busy restaurants. We sat in the tree covered patio where it was cool in the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere at this lovely tavern. The food was very fresh and tasty, I had Imam (aubergines and courgettes in a garlicky tomato sauce) and my partner had the lamb, both were absolutely delicious! The setting is also very pleasant and the staff give this place a very relaxing feel.
