5. Try a traditional bakery!

There are a lots of bakeries dotted around Paphos town. Just pop in to try the local sweet and savoury delicacies!


 6. La Galateria –The Best Traditional Cyprus Ice-cream!

On the promenade in Kato Paphos not far from car parking. There are many Ice cream places, but this is the tastiest by far with the friendliest atmosphere! Try the local frozen yogurt with fruits of your choice! You will never forget it!

7. If you stay in Coral Bay, we advice you to go to:

* Corallo restaurant (next to Angela’s Supermarket) – traditional Cyprus cuisine.

* Palm Grove (Next to Kleos Bar) – Italian restaurant, local & international cuisine, fresh fish dishes, pizza, pastas, steaks.

P.S.: Advice from us: try the Cyprus Meze which is certainly one of the most famous Cyprus delicacies. Or to put it another way: Mezedes are a great number of different Cyprus delicacies. Eating a Meze is one of the “must” on any visit to Cyprus, and is a great guide to understanding the Cypriot mentality. Don’t be surprised at how long it takes and how much food is offered! It can include up to 20-30 dishes! Don’t forget about fresh fish, cheese Halloumi and nice local drinks (zivania, Cyprus Brandy, beer, wine and Ouzo special or “Brandy Sour”)!
