There is a huge number of restaurants in the Paphos area, far too many to mention, but not all restaurants are able to lay on and manage a wedding reception or wedding for a large number of people. We show a small list here of our favourite locations for restaurant weddings, they are tried and tested and we know they will do an excellent job.
This is one of our favourites for restaurant weddings and we have probably arranged more receptions at this restaurant than any other during the past years. The location is fabulous, it overlooks the sparkling blue Mediterranean which helps to cool things down a little in the hot summer months, and it is also one of the best locations for sunsets as the sun sets right outside over the sea so you get some fabulous photos just a short walk away on a picturesque jetty. The owners and staff are all lovely and the food is excellent, you can have a traditional Meze, BBQ buffet or 3 course meal, so what more could you want! This restaurant also has a gazebo at the front where it is possible to hold your civil marriage ceremony, so you can have the ceremony, champagne reception, reception meal and disco on the spacious dance floor all in the same place. Unlike many venues it is possible to have music until the early hours – there is no set cut off time.
This lovely taverna is in the heart of Kato Paphos, tucked away down a side turning and it hosts many restaurant weddings every year. It has a very large stone courtyard outside with wooden gazebo covering, informal seating area with bar and lovely flowers and trees surrounding the garden. It is ideal for both small and large receptions, it has a large indoor disco room and can be booked privately if you wish. Both the ceremony and reception can be held at the restaurant and of course you can have a cocktail reception and dancing in the evening. The food is very good and you have a choice of traditional Meze, BBQ or 3 course set menus.
This is another lovely restaurant with an enclosed garden surrounded by plants and flowers. Pissouri is located about 30 minutes outside Paphos after Aphrodites Rock (great venue for sunset photos). The village is really lovely with a central pedestrianised area full of attractive bars and restaurants. If you want something a little bit different and very traditional then this could be an option for you.
This is a lovely informal Taverna with fabulous outdoor seating overlooking the Sea Caves coastline, a great venue for a relaxed wedding reception.
