“Lovely beach, friendly cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

A nice beach for walking and swimming, and popular with the locals. The Bonamare has it's own steps down onto the beach, accessible from the large outdoor terrace where all of the tables have great views of the sea and mountains. The food was larger than expected, and we felt very full after eating. Nice ice cream. A great place to enjoy a drink in the hot daytime, or in the evening watching the sun set across the bay.

“A friendly cafe bar on a lovely beach - highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

The Bonamare is situated right next to the sea, with it's own private steps onto the beach. Good for swimming and popular with the locals. The Bonamare is a café and bar, with a large outdoor terrace seating area, and also an indoor seating area. Canoes, a beach shower, a pool table, darts, and toilets were available. Good selection of cold drinks, both soft drink and alcohol. Surprised at the variety of food offered on the menu. The portion sizes were larger than expected and we were full when we left. I have visited many times, and eaten several of the main items, plus tried the ice cream (delicious!) and enjoyed the drinks. Also, sometimes they put on a show or an event, which can be fun.

“Wonderful location, ideal for the airport drop offs and pick ups (on the airport road)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

We've visited several times so my comments aren't based on a one off experience. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. The menu is more directed to snacks rather than restaurant meals but it is innivative and sensibly priced. The sharing platters are ideal for a "pick on" with a glass of wine or a cold beer (of which there is a excellent choice). The location is stunning with beautiful views over the sea. There are shaded areas under large umbrellas if you need to be out of the sun too. Well worth a visit, ideal stop off if you're dropping off or picking up from Paphos airport.

“Beach bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Stopped here on route to the airport to have a bit of dinner before heading home. Very pleasant place to visit. The bar is just off the beach and has good views along the coast. Plenty of shaded seating outside. a fair choice of beers on the menu and the service is good. Food was very tasty, The fish and chips were almost as good as UK.
