“Highest Cypriot standards maintained”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

On another visit to Cyprus last month we soon made our way to this outstanding ,unpretentious restaurant. In over a dozen holidays in Cyprus and eating out a great deal of the time we have not found any restaurant which can provide better Cypriot food than this family-run one just off Makarios Avenue in Upper Paphos. I have often tried to persuade the family to sell up and come to Somerset to open a restaurant here, but I have not been successful.

“Real Cyprus Cooking”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Laona Restaurant is truly a typical wonderful Cypriot family run restaurant with the food being absolutely fabulous. You will not find a more varied menu which really is true Cypriot cooking anywhere. The family make you so welcome when you arrive read out what is on the menu that day and there really is something for everyone. It really is a little gem in the heart of Paphos. Its a must every time I go to Cyprus.

“Best meal all week”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Having spent an enjoyable week in Paphos and experiencing a lot of really great food, we have to report that our dinner at Laona was the highlight! We could have opted for a number of lovely Cypriot dishes but as a group of four, we decided on the meze. Each course was delicious - in particular the stuffed vegetables. The setting is quaint and authentic and the welcome and service was warm and sincere. Highly recommend this dining experience, it is well worth the trip into the old town.

“Cannot be beaten-it's the best”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Having returned to Paphos again we couldn't return home without visiting this superb restaurant. Local Cypriot food excellently cooked and presented by friendly staff and owners. We can highly recommend Laona's where you will not be disappointed and will be given a warm welcome by Chris, Andreas and Koula.
