Restaurant review: Agora Taverna, Paphos
The old town of Paphos continues being modernised at rapid speed. Blink, and a new shop or restaurant has opened. One such eatery recommended to me many times is Agora Taverna, which relocated last year from its previous first-floor premises on Kennedy Square to its new position on the cliff edge. Now this restaurant is undoubtedly more prominent and very much in the public eye. However, I had heard stories that it is booked up days in advance, so I thought it wise to visit at lunchtime and make a reservation. Thankfully it was not that busy upon our arrival on a weekday.
The new location is exceptional, with outstanding views down to the sea. It is hard to miss the beautiful pink building with its green windows when driving through the old town. The interior is traditionally decorated with antiques, and a wraparound vine-covered terrace is available for warmer days. The terrace benefited from a cool breeze blowing in from the distant sea – a venue for all seasons.
