I have visited Paphos, Cyprus a number of times now, and each time I always find new places to eat and discover new things to do. Paphos is well known for it's amazing beaches, cutesy streets and its great location which makes other towns and activities easily accessible from Paphos. But for me, Paphos, and Cyprus as a whole, is famous for its food. I am a big foodie, and one of the most exciting aspects of travelling out of the UK for me is to sample the offerings!
Here, I have complied the best places, by my recommendations, to eat in Paphos.
FIRST AND LAST BAR & Resturant, paphos
MAP: Konstantias Street, 8041 Kato Paphos, Cyprus
First & Last is for those foodies who like their home from home pallet. This bar and grill restaurant does THE best Sunday Roast Dinners and is perfect for those who just crave a good filling dinner after a few to many bevvies! They also do Fish and Chip specials on a Tuesday and Friday, which includes a free pint and a massive portion all for 9.95EUR. If youre one to not miss out on the football whilst on holiday, this is the place to be. The outside screens and comfortable seating area make for a good parking space to watch the match! Definitely check them out if your staying in Paphos, they come highly recommended from me!
CURRY HOUSE INDIAN RESTURANT

For curry lovers all over the world, you wont get a more authentic Indian curry than here. They pride themselves on cooking exactly how they would at home in India, and, my gosh, can you taste the difference! Whilst we were there, a friend of ours who had travelled India asked for an Indian dish that was not on the menu - low and behold they cooked it for us! Every dish is cooked with fresh spices and you can really tell too - every mouthful is so flavoursome. I really cannot fault the service here either. Raj, who I believe is the owner, and all his staff treat all their customers like royalty, it is a very special evening if you eat here.
Yiangos & Peters Fish Tavern, Latchi harbour
MAP: Latchi Polis, 8820, Paphos, Cyrpus.
This restaurant is around a 15 minute drive out of Kato Paphos, but it is well worth a visit if fish is your thing. Set on the waterside in Latchi Harbour, it has a beautiful location and serves fresh fish from the catch every day. Here you can also get lunchtime panini's and sandwiches, as well as meats from the grill. It is also a B&B, so if you'd like a quieter alternative to Paphos for a few nights you can stay here and indulge in the food as much as you like.
Mandria Fish & Chip shop
MAP: Sygkrasis 2 Mandria, 8504, Mandria, Paphos
Cypriot catch and British Chips. The best fish and chips in the whole of Paphos, I would say. The chippy is set in the gorgeous village of Mandria, and is a really friendly and calming atmosphere. They also do takeaway, so if you fancy some fish and chips in your apartment or accommodation - this is the place to go to. It is very well priced too! Check them out if you are visiting Paphos for sure.
I realise all these recommendations are for non local food...
…so if you fancy getting in with the local cuisine, I recommend choosing from the Cypriot sections in the restaurant menu. Most of the restaurants in Paphos cater for the European and Asian clientele, therefore, in my experience, authentic Cypriot food is available - but you have to search for it. Grab a Gyros kebab (best served with Tzasiki) which is marinated chicken served in a pitta bread. This is a Cypriot/Greek traditional food which is to die for!!
If you are a cheese lover, specifically halloumi cheese, you will love Cyrpus. They even do a McHalloumi Burger for breakfast in McDonalds! Needles to say I loved this! Grab a halloumi salad in Paphos harbour for a more refreshing, and less stodgy meal.
I enjoy experimenting with the food abroad, and even though most menu options are available in the UK, it is interesting to understand the different takes on each dish.
