We were attracted to Hondros by the smell alone (charcoal aromas just wafted down the street). It did not disappoint! The staff were warm and welcoming and could not do enough for us. The food was wonderful, especially the special mezze, which included melt-in-the-mouth squid and the chance to taste pickled octopus (yes, you guessed it, amazing!!!). We would definitely... More

The food is always good but more expensive than other local Cypriot restaurants. Good fire in winter. Close to bus station and archaeology.

We have not used this restaurant for a long time, as we moved out of the area, but a discount voucher became available, and we took advantage. The restaurant is very welcoming with hand painted murals and messages written on the walls, and a good location near the harbour. The food portions were generous, and very good quality and tasty,...

Visual style is perfect, and it really looks and feels cozy. We tried meat meze (18 euro) there, and I cannot say that I was impressed. Main course in meze is souvlaki (kebab), and only chicken souvlaki is included. Chicken was overcooked and dry and almost impossible to it, and without this chicken we even left hungry.

Hondros Tavern is a popular Cypriot Tavern, operating since 1951 in Pafos. Serving a plethora of authentic Cypriot meze platters and home-cooked dishes, this unique establishment is located within walking distance to the Pafos promenade and harbour. The setting is reminiscent of a village house, with a sweeping vine providing enough shade in the scorching summer heat. Service is prompt... More

Been coming to Cyprus since 2007, seen this place and not really wanted to go, it's the oldest tavern in Paphos, doesn't look appealing but if you pass it any lunch time, it's packed out with a mix of tourists and locals, it simply has great home cooked food, no gimmicks, just quality,give it a try!

We went to this restaurant following the recommendation in a guide book and we were not disappointed. We had a selection of starters to share as a light lunch and they were all delicious. They were very busy and hardworking but did not let their excellent standards suffer. I would recommend.

This must be a very good restaurant as it was packed on a generally quiet Sunday night. Add in the fact that it is a little bit out of town (up from the bus station) and has been trading since 1953 and you know it has quite a lot going for it. Having eaten there now we understand why. The... More
