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 !
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 ...
The secret behind their success is down to the quality of their ingredients, everything fresh daily and cooked to order, the presentation impeccable ! Marios told me "to cook a good steak you first have to buy a good steak" and that's exactly what they do, importing the finest Black Angus beef and the freshest seafood caught daily by local fishermen.
Overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean Sea, this tastefully decorated restaurant with delectable shaded terrace, edged in crimson flowers, blended with the scents of fresh herbs and a beautiful grassed kiddies' play area out back, offers a warm welcome and a truly relaxing ambience.
... They serve mouthwatering dishes from Fish and Chips to Seafood Platters to Sushi, so delicious you'll want more and more !
Koh i noor Is of course one of the worlds most famous diamonds, and this restaurant aptly boasts the same name and reputation, as it was Paphos' first Indian eaterie and now ending their second decade it's undoubtedly one of my most highly recommended ... I've eaten at a few of Europe's best and this place is well on par !
One of Kyp's favourite, set up on a ridge, above the rock garden, is this lovely low rise cottage style Italian Bistro. The result of a dream come true for Julie, once in the public eye, and Rich,a squadie from UK, their very own Bistro, so they can work together as a family, a place for all the family and their pets, somewhere to eat good food and enjoy good entertainment, opening on the first of the first, this year, I'd say they got off to a good start!
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 !
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 !!!
... an extensive variety of beautifully presented, authentic, a la carte, Italian recipes!
