I am visiting Forsos regularly as they have the best meze in Limassol area. Quantity is enormous, quality is excellent (souvlaki, chicken and pork chops are outstanding) and the service is extremely good and speedy. The prices sre also very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.

Tasty, fresh i.e. vegetables, a good variety of Cypriot dishes. Suitable for small / larger groups and caters for summer and winter outings. Have gone a few times for meze and all times were just fine. However this time the meze was just impeccable!

Ι was there in the summertime (better visit this place in summer so you sit in the “garden area”) and I went again last... More

Firstly a warning...... they don't take credit cards, once you have planned for this everything is great. We went mid-week and by 9PM it was filled with locals and the odd lucky tourist, given that Cyprus is still struggling after the banking crash this says something for the reputation and popularity of this restaurant. The restaurant is in a small... More

I have been visiting Cyprus for 30 years and I have been saddened by the decline in the traditional Cypriot cuisine in favour of rather poor quality "international" food. Forsos is a reminder of how good things used to be when the meat mezze was the king of local dining. It is a large mainly al fresco restaurant with extremely... More

This tavern is definitely the best in Limassol! We'be been to other taverns,but nothing can be compared to Forsos! It is very pretty,with traditional design,recently renovated,but the most important is food! Food is delicious and of the best quality!

One of the best taverns in Limassol.Great outdoor seating in a well decorated backyard. Have 'mezedes' and save some room for their excellent honeyballs at the end!
