The staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome, lovely atmosphere. However, the food was a big let-down. I'm vegetarian and my partner isn't so I can comment on both. The cold meze starters were actually OK to be fair (the usual salad, dips and cous cous), but things rapidly went downhill with the hot meze. My partner chose... More

We went there to lunch yesterday and though it is not easy to find because of the roadworks it's really worth it. Warm and friendly welcome and the menu was explained by the owner who was very accommodating. Real home cooking very generous portions really tasty. And above all the prices are very reasonable. Great deal. רק כמה מילים בעברית... More

Not as hard to find as people think! Park in the Municipal Car Park and head up through the Municipal market. The owner lays out beautiful lanterns to guide you to the taverna so its easy to find. The roadworks actually add to the charm of the place. We were a party of 6, ordered one main each, all of... More

The food is great, a constantly changing menu with many unique and also classic dishes of the Cyprian kitchen. Host/owner was most welcoming and nice, food was great and portions were large (we couldn't finish half of it). Very much recommended!

Fantastic restaurant. Good hosts, Chris and Andreas, Good food & wine. The building work in Paphos town is making is a bit difficult to get to the restaurant at the moment, but do not be put off. The effort is worth it as the welcome and food are excellent. Definitely 5 stars.

After reading all the excellent reviews on this restaurant, we just had to find it! We took the bus to the old town in the day to do a recce! We eventually found it and booked a table for that evening. It was well worth the effort! The food, wine and service were all excellent, couldn't fault a thing. True... More

we come to Cyprus year after year, maybe 12 years ago we stumbled over a small 'average' looking restaurant in the old town Paphos, on the right just before the market. Laona serves some of the best food I've had. i grew up in a Cypriot/English home in the UK with Cypriot food (so i know good from bad/average) Laona... More
