This family run restaurant not to be missed. Well worth finding for great local home cooked food. Charming owner and a fantastic host who talks you through the dishes. Slightly off the beaten track away from the tourist area which is a good thing. Fish was great, house red also better than most other restaurants in the town.

After a little research on restaurants to visit, as a family of for we chose to visit 'Laona'. A very warm welcome by the host, who offered us a table outside which we declined due to street refurbishment works being undertaken. But, on entering the restaurant, the simplicity of the decor was not a reflection of the food we had... More

Friendly staff, tasty home cooked food and reasonable prices. My stuffed veggies (minced pork, rice and herbs) was a lovely change from the usual fayre and my partners beef stifado was tender, after slow cooking. Worth the hunt in finding the place!

We recently did a day trip to Paphos and decided on this place because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. Well what can I say we were not disappointed. After having the menu detailed to us by the owner we decided on the fish and meatballs. The meatballs were absolutely mouth watering and like no meatballs I had tasted before.... More

We had some trouble finding the place due to road closures, our taxi driver phoned ahead and the lovely owner of the restaurant had come out to find us as we'd gotten lost. We opted for the meze of 5 dishes, the chef had lovingly described in great detail and with passion what was in each dish so we could... More

We have made a reservation for Friday night. Due to enormous construction works and closed roads, the Laona is only reachable by walk. The owner was waiting for us in the street to lead us to the restaurant. The place is warm & cosy, nice atmosphere and music. The waiter put the board with the handwritten menu in front of... More

This lovely little restaurant is tricky to find (due to the town redevelopment and road closures) but we strongly recommend you persevere as this was the best place we ate. Family run and very welcoming with an array of local dishes. We chose the meze which includes a number of starters - the lentils were amazing and the choice of... More

We got to this restaurant following the reviews we had found in different places. AMAZING food. The owner welcomes you, and the service could not be better. You pick your own meze dishes and you can taste the authentic Cypriot food. Too much food, as in any other restaurant we went in Paphos. The best dinner we had in our... More

So enjoyed a superb evening at this restaurant .It started with a warm welcome from the owners who guided us through the menu. .We opted for the meze choosing 5 main courses between us.The starters were a simple but tasty fresh salad accompanied by the creamiest tzatziki and sides of mushrooms and vegetables...The meze choices were brought to our table...
