We were recommended this restaurant by another family staying at our hotel. It's located off the main road, on the road opposite the Olympic Lagoon Hotel. When we visited, there was only one other family eating there. Normally I would be put off eating in a quiet restaurant, thinking that the food can't be very good but I will never... More

We have been here twice and I can honestly say the food is beautiful and good sized portions very friendly staff, the only downside is ther is no children menu however they more than accommodate for them. Highly recommended

Just popped in on the way to pick up friends from the airport. We received a very friendly welcome. We felt like we were onto a winner as it was full of local customers. Whilst we were there the staff welcomed visitors from previous years. The food was great, I had a mixed grill - plenty of good food from... More

We had a great lunch here, all the meat had a lovely barbecued taste to it, and there was a 'make your own' meze option that we didn't see in many places. One of our cheapest lunches while in Paphos but definitely one of the best.

We had an enjoyable family meal here, the owner was very friendly and welcoming. We were getting fed up of our hotels buffet so just wanted somewhere close to eat. Much of the local food at Lichnari Tavern was better than what's being served in our 5* hotel! This included the barbecued meats and meze salads.

We spent 3 nights here out of 7 in the evening and could not fault the food. Very quiet in the restaurant but probably due to early season. With out doubt the best chips/fried potatoes I have ever had in a restaurant and you must try the sheftalia which is freshly made. The prices for all the meals were the... More

Charming service and great food. Huge portions, neither of us could eat the chips which was a shame as they were excellent. We were also surprised by the quality of the house wine and will drink this again next time. My only regret was not taking up the offer of eating the accompanying salad as a starter rather than on...
