“A touch of Africa in Paphos - heaven for meat eaters!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2011

'Braai' is an Afrikaans term for a barbeque; coming from the word 'Braaivleis' or grilled meat. Boma is an African term for an enclosure sometimes used to describe a meeting place. The name 'The Lodge Braai Boma' reveals the South African roots of what I am sure is going to be one of Papho's more popular restaurants.

The place officially opened on 29th june 2011 however, we managed to eat there before this. The menu is straight out of Africa offering everything from the traditional Pap (A thick, white porridge made from maize), Boerewors (Fantastic 'Farmers Sausage')n and a host of grilled meat delights.

We opted for the Braai Platter and enjoyed Boerewors, Ribs, Steak and Pork all cooked to perfection on a genuine charcoal grill. We were able to choose from a selection of sauces; we selected the spicy Peri Peri and the Chef's Own Braai Sauce - delicious (Although the Peri Peri is not for the faintheardted).

Our pre-opening meal was great and my wife and I had a chuckle as the staff overcame a few minor issues - typical when opening a new business. But nothing could distract from the fantastic food and the warmth of the welcome.

During our week in Paphos we ate out everyday, mainly in different restaurants. On the last night I asked my wife which one she would like to re-visit. Guess which one we chose. Yes, another great meal. We will hopefully be back in Paphos in September and I'll offer no prizes for guessing which restaurant we'll be making a bee-line for.

Oh, in case you're wondering we're not related to the owners of The Lodge nor are we South African ourselves. However, we have been fortunate enough to visit Africa and enjoy some of the excellent food there. The Lodge does an excellent job of recreating Africa in its atmosphere and its excellent meat dishes.

Finally, if you need any more convincing ask to speak with the Chef. He looks like a Chef should.
