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.

We came here because of the decent prices and the look of the place. We like traditional tavernas and it was very good. We chose off the set menu as we wanted the suckling pig. The wait was minimal and it was delicious. Two large portions with lovely crackling with chips and salad, very reasonable at about 11 euros. We... More

Popped in here for dinner a few nghts ago. I have been here a couple of times before but it's been a while. I was recognised and welcomed back straight away which is always a good sign to me. Set at the end of Bar Street it can be a little noisy at times, but nothing too bad. You do... More

We were wandering around and asked a local to recommend a restaurant. He suggested Alkion for excellent food. We were so impressed with the food and excellent service that we returned to Alkion on our last night in Paphos. Please give this restaurant a go, you won't be disappointed.

We went here as their meze seemed to be extensive. Whilst we waited another diner had their meal appear, suckling pig, this led to us having to come back again. All the dishes were well executed and went down well. If there was anything that wasn't quite to my taste were the keftedes, these meatballs were quite dense, I would... More

Came across this restaurant by chance and we're enticed in with set menus available. As with more restaurants you get large portions. Starters, Main course & dessert were excellent. Wine was around €8.50-11.15 a bottle. Service was excellent. Restaurant appears to have repeat customers and I would definitely recommend and go again.
