Visited this restaurant for a second time. Food is excellent. There are a number of set menus to choose 3 courses from as well as al la carte. Had a superb evening, customer service great - very friendly staff and not pushy. Would recommend.

Tonight's theme at the hotel was Italian cuisine I'm no fan of their cauliflower cheese, so went for something authentic Cypriot. The Alkion was a great choice. Good choice of meals, good service & nice atmosphere

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...More

Kyriakos. it's been a couple of years since we were back in Paphos. How is Papa? I have emailed you in the interim. Sorry for not being in touch more recently. I've been unemployed since July 2014. Hope you and family are OK and doing well. God willing, I will bet new employment and; Mother and me look forward to joining you once again soon!!! LOL
