Excitement is building for the opening of Ouranos, our top floor restaurant and bar. The new-build space offers a panoramic vista of Pafos harbour and its medieval castle. With floor-to-ceiling windows and a generous outdoor terrace, Ouranos invites you to enjoy the beauty of our seaside location; a subtle modern design and accents in the blue and white colourway complement the views of the sky and sea. The Mediterranean fusion cuisine takes a contemporary, international approach to preparing the freshest local ingredients. The lunch menu features a healthy selection of salads and grilled fish, while the dinner menu offers an array of elegant small dishes meant to be shared around the table. Our bartenders are concocting signature cocktails and a full range of relaxing beverages; we will also offer a contemporary take on afternoon tea. With live music, spectacular scenery, and a stylish ambience, Ouranos is destined to be the place in Pafos for a memorable occasion.
The meaning of the Easter holiday season is so often conveyed through food - Easter eggs, seasonal Cypriot pastries, the traditional Midnight Supper, and lamb roasted on the spit. Some celebrants abstain from eating meat, so we have created menus rich in vegetarian and seafood offerings (1-7 April). At Annabelle, we have created an Easter programme that not only allows you to enjoy the holiday fare, but to understand and embrace local traditions. We offer cooking classes, craft demonstrations, an Easter egg hunt, and guidance on local religious observances. In addition to supporting the Orthodox holiday, we have events planned for the Catholic and protestant Easter weekend. We welcome all our guests to join with us in this period of reflection and celebration.

After a complete renovation, Annabelle’s fabled Byzantine Bar has been rechristened as Byz Bar. Our new-look lounge sports marble floors, deep leather seating, a coffered ceiling, and a dark wooden bar. Soft lighting fosters a sophisticated, intimate atmosphere and creates the perfect setting to appreciate dramatic black and white photographs by local artist Michael Kouloumos adorning the walls. Let our mixologist craft a classic cocktail from our extensive menu—our Old Fashioned is made with your choice of over twenty whiskeys and bourbons. With beverage service from 8:00 to 1:00, we offer a full range of non-alcoholic drinks, including coffees, smoothies, shakes, and afternoon tea. Also available is a light menu of appetisers, salads, sandwiches, and desserts (11:00 to 23:00). Evenings find the bar humming with light piano, vocal, and ensemble music (19:30 to 22:30). Stop in for a drink and find out why there is so much buzz about Byz Bar!
‘Caterina: Last Queen of Cyprus’ is the true story of Caterina Cornaro of Venice, who became a devoted queen of Cyprus as well as the pawn of ruthless political schemers seeking to dominate the island. Set in fifteenth-century Nicosia, the play stars Christina Marouchou as the queen. Married in 1472 to King James II of Cyprus, Caterina was pregnant when the king unexpectedly died one year later; a battle by plotters to deprive her of the throne ensued. This original production from Alpha Square Theatre of Nicosia follows the English-language script by Anthie Zachariadou and is directed by Andreas Araouzos. The ensemble has just returned from New York City, where it performed the play in the United Solo Theatre Festival—an annual event of one-actor works from around the globe. Tickets are €4 per person and available at Reception. The performance will be in the Athenaeum Ballroom on 27 December from 17:00 to 18:00.
