with large solid rosewood carousel tables, so you can spin your party buffet 'til your fav is in front of you 😉
... 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 !
Vangelis said he had extensive training in Naples, not at collage but at an academy at a traditional pizzeria, with top pizza chefs. The rewards; pizzas as authentic as you can get this side of Italy, the dough, 4 simple ingredients, hand made, but fermented for 48 Hours before use, a Neapolitan influence, which enhances the flavour, then topped with your favourite toppings, and baked to perfection in a traditional stone fired revolving oven ... the result a a thin base with a light fluffy crust ... I have to say the delicious
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.
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 !
This is as traditional an English pub as you'll find in Cyprus ... It's on a corner for starters !!!
OMG ! Imagine what happens when they have the occasional 'Happy Days' ? ...
The place looks so welcoming, a spacious alfresco lounge under vines with comfy sofas and just inside on the covered terrace, tables immaculately set, pristine, polished wine glasses of various sizes ready for a fine selection of wines, inside is lounge, bistro style, clean and shiny, a well stocked bar with stools if you only want wine 😉 and unusually loos on the same floor, so not walking up and down stairs, very cool ! ... Oh and really good cuisine !!!
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.
