The Laona was only open for lunch while we were in Paphos, but we managed to grab two excellent lunches there before they closed for a three week break. What a relief to get away from all these 'Brit-friendly, English breakfast, Pints of beer' places along the seafront, and enjoy a genuine Cypriot, family-run restaurant. Pretentious it's not. No cloth... More

Just had lunch here (only open at lunch times at the moment) lovely friendly staff, serving a limited menu of delicious traditional dishes.I had beef stifado and my Husband a baked fish with potatoes. Both were plentiful and tasty, both of us had a starter and soft drinks and coffees. The bill coming to thirty euros, very good value. Located... More

We just keep coming back here and we will return as soon as we are back in Paphos. 3 times this year and as many last year and never disappointed due to Service, Quality, and Friendliness. So really make the effort and find this super little tavern not far from the market. Advice: Go Go Go

This has been described as a little gem in the Old Town of Paphos in a tiny backstreet near to the old market. The outside of the establishment is just a tiny area in a cobbled street housing probably 10 tables. The owner is extremely friendly and offers Rabbit Stifado as one of the chefs finest creations. The wine and... More

Found this lovely place a while ago and kept meaning to go (you know how it is!) and finally got there! It's near the market and there are a lot of what I call 'touristy' cafes around there. However, this one is down a little side street and is very different. The owner gives a very warm welcome and explains... More

We have visited this restaurant for lunch while on our holidays in Paphos. We have been thrilled by the service and food so much that we have booked a dinner the following evening. The lunch was great, but the dinner was absolutely superb. If you really want to taste the real Cyprus this is number 1 to go. Well done.
