Restaurants in Paphos
Although closely resembling the Greek cuisine, the gastronomy of Cyprus was influenced by centuries of woe under the most powerful empires of the antiquity. The island was occupied by the Assyrians, Egyptians, Persians, Romans, Venetians, and for more than three centuries, by the Ottomans. These civilizations left their mark on the local culinary traditions, and today, the island of love is paradise for foodies and gourmands.
Dining in Paphos is a rewarding experience. All restaurants count greatly on locally sourced produce and prepare all kinds of seasonal dishes. You’ll be spoiled for choice at your all-inclusive dining venues at Leonardo Hotels & Resorts Cyprus, but you will also find an abundant selection of eateries beyond the gates of the resorts. We have rounded up our top favourite Paphos restaurants in a guide that offers a diverse choice of cuisines.
