I have been coming to Laona with my family for over 10 years. Every time we visit Cyprus (at least once a year) we always come for a meal here. We have never once had a bad meal in over 10 years. All dishes are freshly prepared and the owner and son in law describe the every detail of the... More

Me and my friend really enjoyed our lunches at Laona, been there on two occasions amid a very horrible weather. We have been treated superbly, with a great advice on the food - had meatballs and vegetarian bean dish once, the next time we ordered pork and stuffed vegetables which were delicious. Wine is also a great choice, pick red... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times now and I am always extremely satisfied with the service and of course the excellent food. I went with a friend during the week as she had never been, and she's talking about taking her family there when they come over to visit. It's a proper Cypriot restaurant with home cooked... More

Went in here last Tuesday morning amid appalling weather in Paphos. Got read the menu - everything was 10 euros - so ordered the chicken dish. A few minutes later got presented with a small salad, which I naturally assumed was part of the order as I hadn't asked for a starter. Shortly afterwards got the chicken dish which was... More

Stopped for lunch this week. Excellent food and service even though the owner had a staffing problem. Mains 10euros from a very good blackboard menu which was explained fully by the owner. Local village wine very good at 3 euros a large glass. Cosy place with plenty of return diners which speaks for itself. Would suggest anyone trying this place.
