THE PLACE TO BE
‘A truly unique Afternoon Tea Experience’
OURANOS LOUNGE BAR & RESTAURANT, ANNABELLE HOTEL, PAPHOS
There are many options in Paphos where we can enjoy Afternoon Tea, but one of the lesser known venues is the relatively new and beautifully positioned Ouranos Restaurant and Bar at The Annabelle Hotel. The hotel, made famous not just by its clientele, has created a restaurant and cocktail bar on the roof of its newly-built extension. The bar is stocked with no less than 45 different varieties of gin and 25 malt whiskies!
Ouranos presents a beautiful alternative for Afternoon Tea with a choice of 3 different set menus. The restaurant offers superb views of the sea and has been designed by an interior designer from Paris. It also offers peace to meet with friends and relax in luxury over an everlasting afternoon treat.
Priced at 16 euros per person the menu includes a choice of tea or coffee.
Entitled “Afternoon Tea Experience”, the menu offers three alternatives to suit personal tastes:
- Cypriot Afternoon Tea
- English Afternoon Tea
- Asian Afternoon Tea
On the afternoon we visited, we voted for the old favourite of English which included raisin scones, walnut soft brownie, Victoria sponge sandwich, apple crumble and a fresh fruit tart. These delights were served with sandwiches of Norwegian smoked salmon and cream cheese with citrus, coronation chicken with apple, egg and watercress.
The Cypriot Afternoon Tea Experience includes Cypriot specialities and the Asian one has the emphasis on spices and unusual combinations from the east. We were very attracted to the dark chocolate tart with Sichuan pepper.
Entertainment & Dress Code
Ouranos Bar also holds regular entertainment nights with live singing and DJs playing the music. It is definitely the new hot-spot for eating and drinking – in style – in Paphos. Mentioning style, they have a very strict dress code of smart casual for dinner which means no shorts, flip flops or sports attire.
If you have a special occasion or just fancy treating yourself, you can’t go wrong with Afternoon Tea at Ouranos.
