Golden cafe, immaculate decor, extremely hospitable, delicious menu, and without doubt one of the best places to watch the live sports ... any sports ... at the same time ... on 40 screens up to 98 inches!
I love a new find ... this wonderful Bistro is set in the cobbled alleys at the top end of Old Town Paphos. It's the dream of Soula and Aristos come true. Soula has a love of cooking, especially 'sweet things' and now you can go and enjoy a little naughtiness in a quaint French Bistro style ambience, where everything just seems to slow down and stop, and all you have to think about is which coffee to choose !
Coming outta Shepherds Bush in London, Chris with over 30 years experience, and catering in his blood, following in his father's footsteps, in 2012 he finally sealed the deal to buy the old Banana Cabaret Bar in Kissonerga, then, better known for its sauciness than its sauces ;) .... tbh, Sonny's looks good the moment you arrive, and then, it just gets better!
The pub looks just like a country pub should it's all beer garden out front, with wooden decking and terraces and huge umbrellas and sails and crimson flowers ...
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 without doubt, one of the oldest, best and most recognised traditional taverns in Paphos
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 !
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 ...
... 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!
I can't say enough about this guy, or his totally unique Fun Bus !
