A must visit tavern

Always make a point of visiting Lichnari tavern several times when I go to Paphos. Top food at a reasonable price, a friendly family run business. Dont know if they are still on the menu but the kebab sandwiches complete with sheftalia sausage are the best on the island. The only downside was that... read more

Lichnari is a Greek taverna type restaurant. The meals are cooked on the charcoal grill and the taste is very authentic. Andreas is a very good cook and his son Chris is brilliant front of house. If you want to brush up on your Greek Chris will certainly help you. Although it is on a main road you get the... More

I feel that I must write a short note of thank you to Andreas and Christos who run the Lichnari Tavern. We have been visiting Cyprus for 30years and always make the Lichnari our first stop from the Airport. Their charcoal grilled food has never let us down, lovely fresh salad and of course those wonderful fresh chips ( ask... More

This restaurant attracts both locals and tourists. It has friendly prices and the portions are big. The staff is very friendly. I recommend the huge charcoaled grilled pork chop, perfectly cooked, served with chips and salad. This restaurant also serves half portions for kids, at half prices.

This restaurant was recommended to us by fellow guests at the Avanti hotel. The restaurant is family run and serves traditional food. While the menu is quite small, the food we all chose was lovely. 3 of us ordered mixed grill (which at 15 euros was the most expensive thing on the menu) and 2 had chicken kebab with sheftalia...

We have visited this restaurant twice during our stay and cannot fault it. The service is excellent and Chris and his family are very welcoming. First impressions from the road do not do it justice. Food is traditional Cypriot cooked on a charcoal grill. The restaurant is popular with locals which is always a good sign. I would recommend the... More

The original Cypriot food.The family management and experience is the secret of this unique restaurant/taverna in Paphos: its main items are the charcoal grilled meat and the excellent salads, always fresh food.
