“Amazing place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

An amazing little restaurant with covered terrace where the souvla meat is cooked. Staff were extremely attentive, despite it being a busy Sunday lunchtime. Lots of Cypriot families in here - a good sign that the food is authentic. We went a bit mad ordering moth-watering calamari and a selection of dips for a starter so by the time the main course arrived, we were getting full. We were recommended the souvla - simple freshly grilled meat served with the most amazing roast potatoes. It was a shame we couldn't manage dessert as the apple pie looked gorgeous. I'd eat in this lovely place every week if I could! Great atmosphere, great staff and wonderful food.

“Exceptional Service and Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I think we were waited on by the best waitress in the world at this place.

Don't be put off by the big blue sign of a fat man with a cap. I was worried it was another Brit foody place when we were seeking out some cypriot food for lunch.

Fortunately, we noticed it was recommended in our guidebook so took the plunge and crossed the threshold.

My husbands kleftico was amazing.. so he said.

I am vegetarian so had the the aubergine stew type thing.. or imam I think it is called. This was accompanied by a small greek salad which was in fact massive!

I admired a chickpea concoction on the plate of a diner at another table (intrigued by another veggie dish). The waitress overheard me and brought us both a small bowl in order to try it.. just for the love of sharing food.. good service, whatever.. it was just a nice thing to do :).

We were too full up for dessert so can't comment.

I would return here for the service and food in equal measures.

“Excellent Taverna, interesting mural!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Hondros was recommended by the reception staff at Almyra Hotel. Just a short wealk from Paphos harbour, it was easy to find.
The tavern has been there since 1953 and when you go in you instantly notice the mural, whihc has now been varnished, which is covered with grafitti of previous guests. Owner and staff were friendly and attentive. Food was well prepared, freash fish, amazing dolmades (my companion mentioned they were the best dish of the holiday). Very chilled vibe, sat and had a nice long meal, did not feel rushed or pressured. Very reasonable prices for the portion sizes.

“Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

If you are in Kato Paphos and looking for a cozy little place serving traditional Cypriot food, especially direct from the grill ... pop into Hondros. They are near the entrance to Kato Paphos and beside the largest parking lot. They have a fireplace and great value for money. We liked the souvla a lot and the service was top notch. Worth the visit and money for sure!
