Had a lovely evening when we visited Paphos Town for an evening away from where we were staying near The Tomb of the Kings.
The Taxi driver, as he was based in the old part of Paphos, was unsure where the restaurant was, but after a telephone chat it was sorted. It is not far from the main sea front but set back a few streets at the far end walking away from the harbour, so if staying in Paphos its self is easy to find. We walked back that way to the many bars etc on the front, 5mins maybe at an amble.

Very good food, & pleasant attentive staff, they all deserve to do very well, starting a new business is never easy, but I think they should get a loyal following.

This fairly recently opened restaurant, which is very local to our home in Paphos, has fast become one of our favourites in Cyprus. Unlike the 3 failed restaurants in this premises before it, the owners of Chef de Karp are really passionate and serious about making it successful. The décor and atmosphere are reflective of a top quality restaurant. The food is cooked perfectly and artistically presented, and the service is great. I would recommend the mushrooms stuffed with feta as a starter, and the grilled whole calamari as a main course is to die for! There is a good selection of desserts and all looked lovely although I was too full to try one. My personal feeling is that Chef de Karp can be considered a gourmet restaurant, but unlike certain other ‘gourmet’ restaurants in Paphos, it is very reasonably priced. Expect to pay about the same for food and wine as you would in the Almond Tree, which is also a great restaurant close by. The only downside for us is that the wine list is somewhat limited. Oh, and to end what was already a fantastic experience, we were presented with a complimentary liqueur which was actually a miniature layered cocktail of yellow banana liqueur on top with a fresh red raspberry twist at the bottom – delicious and an art form in itself. We can’t wait to go back!

Very surprised to see a new restaurant in Paphos as a lot have closed down. The food at this restaurant was very good. I visited with a friend, we both had mushroom starters one garlic and the other stuffed with feta. Mains one seafood linguini the other white risotto. Food absolutely delicious, service very good, friendly staff and the chef went to each table asking if everything was ok. The restaurant itself was very smart definitely worth a visit, we will be going back for sure.
