... it's without doubt, one of the oldest, best and most recognised traditional taverns in Paphos
Home from Home There's three, Tea for Two's in Paphos, sort of gives you an idea which way these eateries are going. Without doubt a fantastic choice for breakfast, served all day, and arguably the best in town, or lunch, just cool and breezy in the summer or warm and toasty in the winter months, and a home from home dinner menu, fantastic!, or maybe just indulge in coffees' cocktails, drinks and desserts, they're all home made, delicious and huge portions! ... oh and just a little bit naughty !!!
It's a family run business and a more International eaterie would be hard to find, with Mediterranean, Greek, Italian and Indian cuisines to add to the traditional Cypriot choices on the menu, Andonis calls it Multi Cultural Fusion ... that says it all !!!
It's amazing how many people still didn't know this place exists ... it's situated in the village of Avgorou, and includes beautifully landscaped herb gardens, the woodland area created in the shape of Cyprus, scattered with the endemic trees and shrubs of Cyprus, a Lavender Labyrinth, and it boasts the first and only hedge maze on the island, all 2000 sq.m. of it ...
... an extensive selection of Organic and Bio Food Produce, natural and organic hair and beauty products.
It's been over twenty years since my very good friend Leo opened New Horizon and now son Stephanos is at the helm it's just seems to be getting better and better ! It's a kid friendly pub so families are welcome and they'll give some drawing things to the little'ns to keep them happy and Stephanos promises some really special events planned through the season ...
Haris bar looks the part as you arrive, a cool low modern building, even cooler signage, its comfortable, with spacious inside and outside seating on the covered beer gardens style patios, and out back, a lawn surrounded by sun terraces with full size family pool in the middle for their clients kids to play in free ... oh and an awesome British chef creating a really good Mediterranean menu !
... we have created a menu, traditional but not, it’s totally unique, partly influenced by her yiayia, a fusion of Greek, Cypriot and Spanish cuisine, but she assured me none of the dishes you’ll find anywhere else, because they are the creation of their imagination, using always fresh produce, everything is cooked to order, nothing is prepared and always around her flavours and essences of Cyprus, that she uses to compliment every dish … oh, and if she had her way, she would change the menu every day” … So do look out for their daily specials and make sure you leave room for dessert!
It's a family run restaurant, from Luigi's warm welcome to the home made Cypriot specialities using mum's secret recipes and the lovely touch of complimentary seasonal fruit, grown in dads orchard, that they'll bring to your table for afters ...
Chris said, ''we just came on holiday, decided to move and bought the pub ...". I've heard that before a few times ... but these guys have just blended in like they've been here for years ... I expect it's got something to do with the traditional Cypriot Hospitality that oozes from the family and crew.
