“Lovely family run restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We visited Joanna's several times when we were on holiday with our friends and we never left disappointed.

Any time you went back the father always remembered what your drink was the service was first class.

The set meal menus are value and could not be beaten on price.

Would recommend highly

“Great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

How can you resist a happy hour that runs from 4-11pm and set meals of excellent food for €8.99 and €12.99? We didn't, and the result was no disappointment. The owner was more than welcoming and remembered us from an earlier vist for cocktails. We chose from both set menus and were extremely satisfied with the food and the local village wine.

The only downside was the embarrassment of the complainants mentioned below and we fully support the comments of the other reviewers there on the night. Joanna's presents excellent value for money and service in a crowded and often over-priced market place. Highly recommended.

“Authentic Cypriot family run restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We visited Joanna's on several occasions (at least 5) during our stay in Paphos. This was our first time in Cyprus and we were travelling as a family group of 4 adults and 2 adolescent girls. Joanna's was the first restaurant that we tried on the night of our arrival in Paphos and although it has something of a "Cantina" look about it, the owner and staff were very friendly. The variety of food on offer is extensive and manages to offer something for everyone (even our fussy girls!).

Both of the set menus are excellent value for money and the variety offered outwith these was as good as ANY of the other more expensive restaurants that we visited, both in Coral Bay and at Paphos Harbour.

They also offer a range of cocktails which went down a treat (although sometimes they were a bit on the strong side).

As a bonus the restaurant also offers free WiFi, which while it occasionally drops out, should keep the kids of all ages entertained with their various electronic gadgets.

The only problem that we encountered during our various visits was on our last night of our holiday, when we had the misfortune to witness some customers refusing to pay for food that they had already eaten! The owner (who is no young man) was verbally abused and they behaved quite threateningly towards him, to the extent that children of various parties in the restaurant became upset and the owners son had to threaten to call the police.

In conclusion, I would heartily recommend a visit to Joanna's, especially if you're a family group or on a budget as you'd be hard pushed to find a better value for money establishment.

“Good value food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

A great little place which doesn't look like much from the outside but it offers excellent food and a cheap set menu. The cocktails are good but can be a bit hit or miss depending on who is making them.

This place is not chic but it is great for a holiday experience.
