Having lived on the island near Polis for the last 8 years, Laona is the only restaurant we visit when visiting Paphos. Why? Because Chris and his family serve the best home-cooked Cypriot food anywhere in the area. And at the best price! Hidden away down a side street off Makarios avenue, if you want to experience real Cypriot food, then forget the rip-off tourist places in Kato Paphos and head for old Paphos to experience Laona.
Lambs liver cooked with onions, fish delicately layered with vegatables and cooked in the oven and rabbit stifado are just some of my favourites and you will be hard pushed to find these dishes anywhere else in the Paphos area, if not the whole island.
So take my advice, visit Laona, one my little Cyprus Travel Secrets.
