Here is something to get excited about (even though there is nothing exciting about Wednesdays!) – how would you like sipping your cocktail, enjoying delicious food while watching the sun go down with a fresh sea breeze reminding your of warm summer nights, few meters of the coast?
If that sounds like your cup of tea (or mojito), make your way to Suite 48! A recent discovery of mine (thank you Instagram location tags!!), this place is nothing like any other restaurants in Paphos. Despite being hidden away between two big hotels, it is cramped with locals and their families, and – admittedly- the occasional tourist in speedos. Forget about white plastic chairs and bleached out sun-loungers. This place has style and it’s not afraid to show it off.
First time I spotted this location on Instagram, I jumped with joy on the sight of green grass. If you don’t live in Cyprus, you must know – grass is a commodity of high value and not that easily available under your tanned feet in any restaurant. Perfect if you have a little person in your family who likes to run with wind, roll on the floor or climb on bed with their shoes on.
While adults can embark on adventures of their own – starting with the wine list of course! The beach bar has plenty of options to drown your worries and make you feel like you’re just visiting a local winery.
The most important part – yes, you can lie on the bed and get your drinks served there. I haven’t quite mastered that yet, but on my next visit this is where you will find me. Along with 6 teenagers posing for Instagram photos.
If you prefer to take the centre stage, then this bed was made for you.
Time your visit just an hour or so before the sunset and you can say goodbye to another beautiful day with a cocktail and a stunning view.
Let’s not forget why we are really here – the food! The menu is extensive and really impressive. Gourmet burgers, sandwiches, fresh salads of all varieties, delicious fresh smoothies, juices and a long list of cocktails to choose from.
Be prepared – the portions are massive, so get your starvation mode on before you come for dinner or lunch!
If you know this place, leave a comment and tell me which is your favourite dish so I have something new to try next time!
