Excellent and... More

Have eaten here on most of my visits to Paphos. We usually go to Cyprus 3 times a year. This restaurant is close to my partners apartment and we always make a point of visiting here. The food is freshly cooked, typically Cypriot and both father and son are perfect hosts. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Warm and friendly welcome, a seat by the fire, beautiful tender souvlaki and a good mix of Cypriots and tourists in January. Going back tomorrow!

We have visited Paphos 7 times now and wherever we stay we have always travelled to Lichnari to eat. There is always a warm welcome from Chris and the family. Lichnari serve the best brandy sour we have ever tasted and the food is amazing! We would recommend the pork chop which is huge and cooked to perfection. The sheftalia... More

We walked in and a table was provided for us by the open fire. We had a warm welcome and settled in straight away. I didn't know what Sheftalia was but the dish was explained to me and I had to give it a go. I was not disappointed. My wife really enjoyed her chicken dish and the wonderful music... More
