Ate twice here over the New Year and would have gone more often if we had time. Meze's really good value for money and easily altered if you don't like any of the dishes on order( and actually got a free suckling pig portion to taste!). Mixed grill comes with 5 different meats but we actually got 8, they seem... More

Two visits this week and a meze on both. Mixed for one and fish for the other, both were excellent. Service is considered, with time to digest but without making you feel as though you've been left. A very friendly welcome from the host and a cheerful log fire to banish the chill last night.

Thank vivoward

My wife had Sword Fish which was also good. After the meal we were given a Complimentary Brandy. To my mind the best restaurant in Paphos. will go... More

We visited this restaurant last night and had a wonderful meal. The owner greeted us warmly and drinks were quickly served. This visit was a treat paid for by my partner's son. We chose the meat meze at 14.00 Euros a head and what a feast it was. We started with a large bowl of salad accompanied with warm pitta... More

We have visited Cyprus many times but it took until this year to find Alkion (although it has been established for many years). It became our very regular eating place over a full month. The food, the surrounds, the excellent and friendly service by proprietor Kyriacos and, not least, the modest pricing make it a place to recommend without hesitation.

This is our third year in a row coming to Cyprus, we discovered this little Gem on our first trip. It was lovely to get the usual warm and friendly greeting from owner Kyriakos. The Kleftiko was as usual top notch, and on a later visit we tried the sucking pig which was quite delicious with tasty crackling on the... More

Food really good and very reasonably priced here. I chose Dolmades to start followed by Kleftiko. Both delicious. Bill for 5 of us was 110 euros which included drinks and wine

I been a regular visitor to Paphos..... at least twice a year for the last 14 years. I always make at least one visit to the Alkion (Kingfisher) Restaurant on each occasion. The food is consistently good, and excellent value, with a choice of about 5 fixed price 3 course menus. I usually opt for traditional Cypriot food, eg Keftides... More

Just had an amazing meze meal for the two of us. Couldn't finish it all. Very friendly service and atmosphere. They insisted on giving us a free liquor to finish (possibly because we were the last two there), didn't argue. Will be definitely going again before the end of our holiday.

Found this restaurant early on in our trip and dined there 4 times. The food was consistently lovely, they made a real effort to find suitable wines that we liked and I wouldn't hesitate to return.
