Some restaurants close in the Winter but a lot remain open. You could also think about Limassol as it is definitely an open all year town.

If you are looking for Christmas dinner and don't mind a 45 minute journey from Pafos go to Paradiso Hotel in Lysos - just south of Polis. Contact them direct or Elleni at Saddles Café in Polis who is related to the hotel owners. Fantastic views out over Latchi and Polis seafront from up at Lysos

Little choice at night? Was that in Paphos? I am a little surprised as Larnaca, Limassol , Paphos and Nicosia are working cities, where locals live, work and have dinners in restaurants.

No, you should have no problem in finding a restaurant in Larnaca or Paphos during winter period. However since it's Christmas period you'd might need a reservation for some restaurants.

During the winter season, some restaurants might be closed in Paphos, but definitely not all of them. And pretty much all of the restaurants in Larnaca stay open during winter time. If you happen to be in Larnaca and not sure where to have lunch or dinner, just go to the Finikoudes area which is the busiest place in town and you'll find lots of cafes, restaurants, fast food places and pubs. Some places (pubs, bars, clubs and some restaurants) have special events for New Year's eve, and if I were you I wouldn't just show up anywhere on that particular date. Better to make a reservation in advance, or even better to play it safe and have dinner on Christmas eve/day and New Year's eve at the hotel. Most of them have gala dinners or other events on those dates. My favourite places to eat in Larnaca are Hobo's restaurant (downstairs for casual dining, upstairs for steak), Ocean Basket, TGI Friday's, and of course the many fish tavernas offering fish meze that can be found further down the same road, on the way to Makenzy Beach.
