Simply a great place to eat

Always make a point of visiting here. The food is great as is the service. Visit more than once and they will remember you. They deserve all the plaudits they get.

Absolutely great! Excellent food cooked on an open charcoal grill behind a low divider between the restaurant and the kitchen - so you can see everything going on with your food. The tasty local 'village' wine we ordered was not only cheap compared with most but we got a little run-down from Christos, the manager, on where it came from,... More

We had just arrived in Paphos and were staying at an appartment just around the corner. It was 10:00 pm in late December and we were hungry but not hopeful of finding anywhere still open. Kristos, the owner was just closing up and we could see the cook taking off his apron, but they stayed open for us and served... More

If you want traditional Cypriot grilled meat, then this is the place to go. Family run by a father and his son, who were extremely welcoming and friendly. Visited on two occasions during our trip, and most notable was the pork chop which my partner ordered. To call this pork chop huge would be an understatement; it took up the... More

Being on an all inclusive package we visited Lichnari for a change. The local food and the hospitality is outstanding, and its location is only a short walk from the big seafront hotels. A true example of local food and wine and very reasonably priced. You wont find better in the area

It did not disappoint. We will go back fir the full mezze later in the week. The mixed grill and chicken kebab were ace. And if you like a little spice in your starter try the hot cheese salad, scrummy feta, hot with chillis and bread mmm

An oasis of traditional Cypriot food In a desert of touristy fast food. We happened upon this taverna by chance and found the food to be of the highest quality, including fresh garden salads and an excellent assortment of chargrilled Meze. Christof gave excellent service and each time we visited, the cost was always well below 20€, far cheaper than... More

Ensure that you are starving before coming to this taverna!!! The portions are enormous and certainly defeated my husband and I! The welcome was warm and typically Greek. We had Ouzo to start with tzaski and bread and a Greek salad ( a little light on the feta) followed by enormous pork chops and calamari. Our meal was completed by... More

This is a typical Cypriot tavern the owner was very welcoming and the food was very nice cooked on a charcoal grill. The restaurant is near the university.

Ate there on Friday 11th and had the meze for 2 lovely meal the food kept on coming in a steady relaxing manner (make sure your hungry ) as it's more of a marathon than a sprint.!! All for around 45 euros inc beer and wine.
