We ate at Laona after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and we certainly weren't disappointed. The service was superb and the food really outstanding and so reasonably priced, a real highlight of our visit to Paphos. Our only regret was that we didn't eat there more often. It's worth a trip back to Paphos just to eat at this lovely... More

Genuine Cypriot home cooking, fabulous hospitality, tables on the street (yes literally - it is closed off), superb village wine, gigantic portions and a bill that is stupidly low compared to the tourist traps by the harbour. We had six or seven courses (laughably listed as Mezze, but actually a half portion of 5 items from the menu plus salads,... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times and never been disappointed. The gentleman who owns the restaurant sells the food to you by explaining every dish on a menu board, and telling you how it's cooked and what herbs and spices are in them. Food is excellent.

ADVICE; You must find this Restaurant because Typical,Traditional, Authentic and being made feel at home just doesn't exist anymore. The owner and his son in law are the real deal,truly people who love and want to share an eating experience that will drive your tasting senses crazy. There are many dishes each one as good as the other. During our... More

Found Laona through TripAdvisor and decided to go for it. Located up a cute alley in a very traditional setting we we're welcomed with a smile by the staff of the restaurant. After seating the gentleman approached us with the menu board in hand and starting explaining every dish including its ingredients to us. This was a great start to... More

We had a nice Saturday afternoon family meal here, and we were amazed by the delicious home-cooked dishes, the old charm of the place and the incredible hospitality of the owners. I returned after a few days for lunch with a Cypriot friend, and he was equally impressed.

This is not another tavern. This is a place of traditional food, full of local flavours. Excellent, kind and generous people. Extraordinary with the kids.

For the last 15 years I've been returning to the Laona with my brother and family at least twice a year and have never been disappointed. For traditional Cyprus dishes made by a family and served by a family this is definitely the place to go. Kris and Andreas go the extra mile to make you feel welcome . I... More

Laona is up a side street off Makarios Avenue. Ideal for lunch after shopping. Outside tables are actually in the street but no cars go along. Last time I was there on a Friday evening, I sat Inside as it was a chilly evening. They only open in the evenings twice a week. Tuesday and Friday. Do book. The Meze... More
