From brunch-time fancies to divine dinners, there are some great new spots to delight foodies in the seaside town of Paphos. Read on to find out more about the hot spots that should satiate your taste buds the moment your fork hits the plate!
Some visitors rave about the wonderful views across the Paphos harbour at Ouranos rooftop lounge bar at the Anabelle hotel, while others, just can’t get enough of the delicious cocktails and food, with an unusual and innovative menu setting this place apart.
For lunchtime treats, we love their poke bowls (with options like tuna and mango and honey chicken), while their vegetable power bowls go down a treat with veggie fans, with options including sweet potatoes and tahini, and spicy grilled tofu. When the sun goes down, their evening menu is equally enticing, with all sorts of dishes to share in the mix including vegetarian starters – be sure to order the crispy rolls with baby spinach and cherry tomato marmalade – mains like seared Black Angus and Oyster Sauce and dreamy sweet treats; the chocolate and Szechuan pepper tart is heavenly!

2. Dim Sum Yum
It was about time that Cyprus caught onto the dim sum trend, and now, this bite-sized Chinese food traditionally served in steamer baskets is available in the heart of Paphos, right by the entrance of the municipal market.
Aptly named Dim Sum Yum , this sleek little place not only specializes in delicious freshly made (and handmade) dim sum, but also, wok noodles, chicken wings, wonton duck soup, sticky rice and more. We also have a real soft spot for their steamed buns, filled with aromatic pieces of crispy Peking Roast Duck, fresh cucumbers and spring onion, topped off with hoisin sauce.

The Greek franchise that recently made waves in Limassol has now opened shop in Paphos’ central Poseidonos Avenue, dishing up all sorts of sweet and savoury brunch time treats.
With bagels, burgers and breakfast pizza on offer, die-hard Estrella fans love to tuck into the pancakes, with a whole host of toppings available, whether you fancy something savoury like cheddar cheese and bacon, or wish to satiate your sweet tooth with their Black Forest or ‘Rainbow Strawberry Choco’ variety. That’s not to forget their waffles, with the black waffle with smoked salmon, cream cheese, home mayo, avocado and salad a huge hit.
