We decided to try this restaurant for lunch on our last day in Paphos based on the TripAdvisor reviews. There was very little choice as most of the items on the blackboard menu had gone, but what we had was tasty and the service friendly and efficient.

We went here simply due to the reviews. Walked up to the door and were welcomed in with big smiles! It seems to have all been newly renovated as everything is finished well... Nothing fancy... But it works. Not what I expected when we walked up the small side street. But the food. Amazing! Menu delivered on a board and... More

We saw the great reviews about this place and took a taxi to eat great food... Even though the owner is very nice, that's all that restaurant has to give... We ordered the fish - seriously, you can't eat this!! Then we took the lamb and mousaka ... well... my vacation ended here sadly... I'm with food poisoning since, so... More

Wonderful food served in a traditional way. Family owned and run. No sea view. No fancy setting. Traditional pavement setting so really feel part of Greek life. We have been coming here for 5 years and would recommend to anyone looking for a good evening out.

Let me start by telling you what this doesn't have. It doesn't have a sea view, it doesn't have a posh room or even a starter menu but there is something about this place that makes you want to stay all day if it was open. It is set in a back street behind the market and the tourist tavernas... More

Realised that this place was just round the corner whilst visiting Paphos old town. So glad we made the visit. It was a glorious sunny afternoon so we opted to sit in the outside area. The menu is simple with about 10 different traditional dishes to choose from, each one explained by the waiter for you to make your decision.... More

Number one priority when we arrive in Paphos is to lunch at Laona. Andreas and Chris are like old friends and its always good to catch up with the local news but, of course, the whole point is to enjoy one of their home cooked meals. Nothing run of the mill here. All delicious. Ever changing menu board will suit... More

A really nice taverna/restaurant in the old town of Paphos. We don't go there very often as we live several kilometres away but today we went there with friends and it reminded us what a find this place is. The welcome from the owners makes you feel like part of the family and the daily menu on chart board is... More

This meal was as always one of the best during our visit to Paphos. Service and food was perfect. Chris and Andreas enthuse when explaining every dish on their extensive menu and all turns out expected. Can't wait to return.

If you are craving traditional food, this restaurant is the one to try. The fish cooked in the oven is one of the best dishes you could try, words cannot do this dish justice. The same can be said for all the food on the menu. Which by the way is written on a blackboard. Chris his wife and the... More
