Review | Pingouinos in Paphos awarded ‘Place to Be’ by Cyprus in Style


Pingouino Café

Positioned in a fabulous location, just set back from the sea, at the crossroads of Poseidonos and Dionysou Avenues in Kato Paphos, is the very popular Pingouino Café. This is the place to go, to people watch and enjoy a leisurely coffee, cocktail or meal. The interior is well designed with plenty of private seating areas offering a variety of seating options. Right at the back there are some lovely private areas which are perfect for larger groups. They have kept the nautical theme going throughout with a cool vibe design, using stripes and neutral colours. At the front of the café is an outside seating area which has a lovely view across the central fountain to the sea. If you can get a table and with the weather warming up, this is where you should sit. Visit Pingouino Café Bar in Paphos for top quality coffee, cocktails, food and desserts.

The Pingouino Standard: Consistently High

The staff here are always friendly and very on the ball going backwards and forwards with order after order. The food is most deserving of a mention as they maintain their standards time and time again.

What’s on the Pingouino Menu?

The menu has both local and international dishes with burgers, salads and pasta dishes, and offers everything you can think of from breakfast to dinner and mouth-watering desserts. The Mediterranean Sharing Platter is highly recommended, as is their very generous Greek Breakfast. They also have a fantastic gluten-free menu. The coffee served here is excellent, and we especially love their cappuccinos with the ‘correct’ frothy top. Pingouino is also well known for serving a vast range of cocktails.

The prices are very reasonable for both food and drinks!

Owned by Nikos Simillides…

Pingouino is owned by Nikos Simillides who has established the popular café bar as a firm meeting place for the citizens and visitors of Paphos. It is a real family affair with his brother Simos managing the café. Visiting Pingouino can actually make you feel that you are on holiday and for those of us who work here, it is the perfect place to grab a quick coffee or meal, and relax.

Pingouino Café is situated on the corner of 9 Poseidonos & Dionysou Street in Kato Paphos and is well-renowned for being one of the most popular cafés in Paphos. Like their page on Facebook for more information. To start browsing the #InStyleBusinessNetwork, please click here.
