Cyprus Advice

Will have the pleasure of visiting Cyprus this month. Any insider info on not-to-miss tavernas, street food, markets, seafood? Prefer honest, humble, rustic, local.

  1. You might like:

    St George at Agios Georgios. Basic meat & fish grills, etc. Great location overlooking the sea.

    Seven St Georges, Yeroskipou - gets all the tourist mentions for best mezze in the Paphos area. And rightly so.

    Mezodopolian, Yerosskipou - much more of a locals place for a mezze. Good food although not as creative as "Seven"

    Viklari - the Last Castle. Google it. Fairly difficult drive to get to it - along a track near to the beach then up a hillside. There's no menu as such. Choice between BBQ'd chicken or pork with p;otato and salad. You'll need to make a reservation - only open at lunch (you really wouldnt want to drive this in the dark) and it gets packed. I just love it....fortunately, the Cypriots drive on the proper side of the road.

    The small market at Paphos town is worth a visit to see what's seasonal.
