“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This restaurant does not read well in reviews so approached hesitantly.

Our welcome was acceptable and friendly given our own choice where to sit. Food was v good and service i would describe as "laid- back friendly".

Be brave and ignore some of the worse reviews which are sometime in the past.

“A great place....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

To spend and evening with family and friends when you are on holiday. We've been visiting Barone's for the past five years and we have never been disappointed. As previous reviews say there has been a change around with the staff. We chatted about this to the new lady manager and she was just as accommodating as the previous manager, just not quite as quirky! However lovely food, good service, relaxed atmosphere at a reasonable price...what more can you ask for!

“Extremely poor service !!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We went to this restaurant on our 3rd night in what has otherwise been a wonderful holiday in Cyprus. The only disappointment and unpleasantness was this restaurant. We walked in and were not even greeted by the waitress who looked like she didn’t want to be there and couldn’t be bothered. She just pointed to the first table that was free and we were given the menu by another waitress. From there onward we waited 35-40 minutes and no one came to our table to take the orders!! It is not as if we were in a secluded or hidden area or anything, the waitresses were walking past our table all the time and it even came to a point where other clients were pointing to the waitress that we have been waiting a long time to be served!! Even that didn't change anything and some people who came after us were being looked after and we eventually left the restaurant as there is no point spending money at this place where the service is so appalling and from what I am reading on other reviews, the food is equally rubbish. We left and went to the Mexican restaurant Rio Grande on Coral Bay road and were greeted to an exceptional service and food.

“Just Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Barones is a 25 minute drive from our home in Paphos and having booked a meal for our first ever visit to this restuarant I have to state that it was average. The food was just OK, with frozen veg and cold jacket potatoes served with the main course! The menu is far too large and confusing, it needs to be more condensed and then they can concentrate on getting better quality food out. Drinks are expensive and in particular the local wine, which is available in abundance island wide at much more reasonable prices.The fact that a sachet of Nescafe and some hot water, served at my request without milk, at €3.15 should be an indication of high prices. I would rather do without a free coffee liquor with the bill and have food and beverages better priced. Sorry guys but it was not worth the journey, but at least we gave it a try, but it is not for us.

“frozen veg!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Perhaps it was because we booked with our Daily Deals voucher!........... but I don't think so.

Starters were small and expensive e 5.45, for brochette. (4 small pieces of fried french bread with a bit of tomato and cheese on) and 4 stuffed mushrooms at e 5.85
The main course (mixed grill) came with frozen carrots! (I ask you! in Cyprus!!) and frozen chips, although the cauliflower and courgette were fresh. The veg Cannelloni was good, if pricey and with no accompaniments, my husband asked for chips, which came after a reminder, and after he had eaten his main course. We then had to ask for our voucher back..as its a two restaurant deal!
