Popped in for lunch one day and was pleased with the results. Nothing stands out as being not as expected, nothing in particular to rave about. Just a very honest, rock solid Very Good. Great selection on the menu and a good range of drinks from the bar. Well cooked food and well presented without there being too much fuss.... More

We came across this restaurant by pure chance while walking to visit one of the churches, and returned that evening. The roast chicken on the spit was finished, which was a shame. I had the calamari, it was as one would expect calamari to taste. My other half had the traditional chicken souvlaki, which he thoroughly enjoyed, lovely background music,... More

Nice restaurant, Good food, needs salt. Watch they give you your change. They assumed that I wanted to tip them €3.20 when I was there.

Traditionaĺ Cyprus taverna with good and inexpensive traditional meals in the way a grandma will do it. Sheftalia is one of the best here. Wine list is typical a-la kiosk by the road, nothing special but will the one match village food with super Toscana or a Grand cru? Quiet seating by the fireplace in the winter with no crazy...

Situated by the harbour you cannot walk past this place without the mouth watering smell of BBQ. We have been here a few times and the food is always good even when the place is packed. The service is quick and the staff friendly. A good indication of any taverna in Cyprus is that if it is used by the... More

We had a recommendation from our rep for this place and I was sceptical at first as it was empty when we arrived for lunch and a bit slow moving, but it turned out to be a bit of a gem. The staff were lovely and very accommodating to children. We had the hondros mezze, which was a fabulous mix... More

Mouth watering smell of meat spit roasting outside as you walk towards this place. Ate here twice whilst on holiday, it does get busy a bit later in the evening but plenty of seating and has a lovely covered outdoor seating area. The food was delicious and the house wine was good, definitely recommend something from the spit roast as... More

It really was the best place we ate while we were in Paphos! My boyfriend and I struggled to find traditional food round the Kings Road and harbour area, this was definitely the best! I don't eat meat or fish but my boyfriend eats both, so the first night we went we both had a mezze, and it was brilliant!... More

Hondros is probably the best eating option in the Paphos port area. Food is very good, staff is friendly and professional. It's nothing like the tourist mass-feeding facilities. Also, they have good options for vegetarians (we had the vegetarian meze, which was great, as was the wine - we had a bottle of Thisbe).

Thank kr0elle
