The Laterna Restaurant is located on Apollonos in Kato Paphos.
Just off the famous Bar Street, take the little road opposite Bubbles Bar, Laterna is just on the right hand side. It’s just metres from the noise and fun of Bar Street, but a million miles in every other way.
The Laterna Restaurant is a family run delight serving good, honest Cypriot cooking. There’s always the warmest of welcomes and you’re made to feel like an appreciated guest. If you go back, you’re welcomed like a long lost member of the family!
The menu has a good range of choices – and if you don’t see what you fancy – they’ll have a go at making you something you want. As an example, Pam is a vegetarian, so they cook her a plate of the freshest and tastiest vegetables. Looks and tastes delicious! They also offer some traditional Cypriot dishes that are prepared beautifully.
Many of the restaurants in the tourist area of Kato Paphos are set up to deal with tourists. That’s OK to a point, but if you want a real Cypriot experience, the Laterna is the closest to it we’ve found in Kato Paphos.
That leads on to the question of value. In the years we’ve been in Cyprus the prices in tourist areas have climbed inexorably. The Laterna bucks this trend. We ate a main course each with beer and wine and got change out of €30 for two of us – very good value indeed.
Would we go back? Certainly!
