Can't fault the food or friendly service. How anyone can say it is ' Boringly British' is beyond me and obviously the other diners who rate it as highly as myself and my husband do. They must have been in another venue obviously! However forget about that and just try it for yourself. The food is beautifully cooked and the family go out of their way to make sure you feel welcome and comfortable. If you are so hard to please that you are not satisfied with that kind of service then nothing will please you so maybe take an apartment and cook for yourself .

We were surprised by Paphos, expecting rather more sophistication than we actually found. Reality was more about kiss-me-quick hats and restaurant touts. However, we were determined, and eventually stumbled on Laona. I would have been happier had they not packaged the 3-course-meal-deal into a 10-euro "special", but in fact they were happy to trade the starter in for a beer.
I've always liked back-street restaurants, and Laona didn't disappoint. Good, simple local food. The lamb's liver was excellent, and Maddy's beef stifado (some pig had hogged the last portion of rabbit a moment before) was excellent. Good quality, and more than enough for a couple of oldies.
No frills, but just good Hellenic/Cypriot urban eating.

We have been visiting Laona for 15 years and the food has always been of consistent and excellent quality. The family Chris, Koula and son-in-law Andreas always have a warm welcome for their guests. There is always a good mix of Cypriot business people, expats and tourists which makes for a great atmosphere. Loana is a lunch venue except in the Summer when the restaurant opens on Tuesday and Friday nights. Food is Cypriot but what you would eat in a Cypriot's home rather tahn the usual Souvla!

Regarding another review which said Laona was a bit short on vegetarian options - that is true but I know that if you were to call a day ahead the family would absolutely be delighted to cater for any vegetarian's in your party.

Very attentive staff and each dish was expertly explained, bit short on vegetarian options, but all the dishes were delightful and beautifully cooked.

The food was average, service spasmodic and the restaurant full of Brits, should have stayed in Blackpool
