We were introduced to this restaurant by friends of ours who live in Paphos last year. We were so impressed that we visited again this year. The food and service is first class. As is the Greek way sometimes there is a bit of a wait but well worth it. The staff are really friendly and were brilliant with the... More

We chose to eat here because the specials board advertised suckling pig. We were not disappointed, it had moist flesh and great crackling. A shame it seemed to be the only special as it was on the specials board every night. The staff were good and the service wasn't as slow as some other reviewers found it to be. Wine... More

The restaurant is covered but open at the front with fans all over the place to keep it cool. We were seated just about the centre, and the smaller fans made it quite pleasant. We were only after mail courses, wine and water which was delivered quickly enough. We had chicken in Diane sauce which was good and a large... More

We ate here one night. The staff were friendly and welcoming. I had the garlic mushrooms to start and my husband had ribs. I would say the portions sizes were spot on. Some places I've eaten and the starters have been like a main meal. These were not too small but not too big either. For main, I had pesto... More

After a number of not so great 'traditional' meals, we were soo happy to come across the Alkion! The staff were fab and so friendly and the food was fantastic! We both thoroughly enjoyed our food and had we been in Paphos longer would have returned.
