The Kiniras Traditional Hotel is a 15th century Venetian building, which was first converted into a hotel in 1924, located in the heart of Paphos, it is perhaps the most traditional of Paphos hotels still maintaining its original character and uniqueness and is of course a listed building. The Kiniras hotel has become known over the last few years as a landmark, meeting place and a favoured venue for eating out in Paphos. The architecture of the building gives an irreplaceable expression of the wealth and variety of its cultural background all of which is complimented by the artwork that adorns the walls.
The hotel is found only a few metres from the market and a short bus ride from the harbour and the Unesco accredited sites of Kato Paphos. Sleep well, eat and drink well and be enchanted by this idylic hideaway right in the heart of old Paphos.
The Kinras Tavern is fairly unique having had a menu that catered for all and done it well it has chosen to go 'back to its roots' and present a menu that is steeped in tradition and uncomprimising in its authenticity. The menu, created from the cook books of the past, offers such delicacies as sun dried lamb, kalamari, machalebi (a pudding based on rose water syrup) or more familiar but equally authentic dishes such as t-bone steak or mousaka. Experience the ambience and relaxing qualities of the outdoor enclosed courtyard which is open to the public, for a morning coffee or taste some exquisite Cypriot traditional cuisine at lunch or throughout the day.The Kiniras has achieved the coveted CTO (Cyprus Tourism Organisation) Vakhis award. This is awarded sparingly to establishments that serve traditional Cypriot cuisine in an environment that is authentic, and where the levels of service as well as the ambience and decor compliment the food ~ in short the full dining experience.
