This is, without doubt, one of Paphos' finest eateries ... It's a traditional Irish Bar, so authentic all the furniture was crafted in Ireland an imported over, lots of dark warm wood, benches and stools, cottage cabinets and red brick. There's plenty of room inside, a nice covered smoking room and a lovely breezy sun terrace out front with comfortable seating, and the pub grub just a tad above the rest ... it's just like you've walked into a bar in Dublin, only a bit warmer!
I caught up with Nikos who also owns Blazing Saddles Pub next door, who told me "I opened the Indian Restaurant in 2013 because there wasn't an authentic one in the area. Then one year later my customers persuaded me that there wasn't a decent Chinese either", and chop-chop it happened! ... And then, quite recently Nikos again listened to his customers' wishes, and added Thai & Sushi, so as you're in Cyprus, now you might as well 'Meze' it up, Asian style!
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 !
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 !
... it's without doubt, one of the oldest, best and most recognised traditional taverns in Paphos
Fat Mama’s is one of those special places that’s so good you’ll just keep going back, so naturally after 25 years it gets really busy every night with bookings not accepted after 7 pm, but don’t worry, if you have to wait to be seated you can enjoy a drink from a well-stocked bar. Mixing one of my favourite Mojitos or try one of their intoxicating cocktails, and at 2 for the price of 1 during happy hours!
It's a family run hotel apartments, more like a mini resort ...
This is as traditional an English pub as you'll find in Cyprus ... It's on a corner for starters !!!
I asked Marios @ Andria Steak & Seafood Restaurant, in Coral Bay, Paphos what's their secret behind their success? He said "it's down to the quality of our ingredients, everything is fresh daily and cooked to order, and to us, presentation is an art" ... I have to say it's impeccable! Marios continued; "to cook a good steak you first have to buy a good steak, and that's exactly what we do, importing the finest Black Angus Beef and the freshest seafood caught daily by local fishermen" ... I highly recommend a visit and I just know you'll go back ... Click on the Article for a Map and More ...
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!
