The Patriotic Front (Πατριωτικό Μέτωπο) was a political party in Cyprus founded in 1960, by members of the United Democratic Reconstruction Front who had supported Archbishop Makarios III in the presidential elections of 1959.

In the 1960 legislative elections, the Patriotic Front won 30 seats in the House of Representatives of Cyprus. The leftist AKEL, which had cooperated with the Patriotic Front in that election, won the remaining five.

The Patriotic Front dissolved by the 1970 elections.
