Great local taverna

Pros: Local, traditional food, HUGE Meze. Cheap Cons: None really I really liked this place, very local up in the hills, prepare yourself for an enormous meze and some seriously good chips! The salad is delicious and the meat seems endless. Great for an authentic evening.

The meat meze was quite good, but the evening was spoiled in the very end when they stated that they don't accept credit cards. This has led to an embarassing situation where our guest had to foot the bill. For such a big place with lots of visitors not to accept cards is unheard of in Cyprus.

We visit this tavern with friends and we have a really good expirience with the food. We order meze and the food was great. The staff was helpfully and kindly.

They squeezed us in as we didn't have a booking but turned up early (6ish) on a Tuesday night. We had the mezze for two, very nice food overall, and so much of it! Make sure you're very hungry if you do the same, and don't eat too much of the bread and dips and salad that come first otherwise... More

Once more Forsos delivers at the top of the range of grill houses. We visited with friends from Greece and were happy to experience the same great quality in the excellent garden of this traditional tavern. Cannot get much better.

Been there many times with colleugues since we made this tavern a meeting point. Food is quite good and if there is food left you can take it with you. Nice house wine , the food is really tasty with a decent variety of meze. The only bad thing is that any visa card is not accepted so you have... More

Cypriot mezze. Everything tasted good and there was food left over even I though we were four and ordered for three. The house wine, both red and white, were excellent. I would definitely go back. No credit cards accepted. Cash or cheques only.

I'm a British born Greek Cypriot so know all about Cypriot food. If you only go to 1 taverna make it this one. Excellent food, friendly service and always busy do book in advance.

First off, the atmosphere is great with everybody chatting in the outdoor courtyard with its old Cypriot stone and flowers. The place is fairly casual and the food is really good. The salads come first and are beautifully crisp and fresh and come with some lovely dips etc. The plates keep coming- this place is a meat eater's heaven, although... More

Forsos Tavern came highly recommended by our local guide and did not disappoint. Although we had several mezes during our stay in Cyprus this one was undoubtedly the best. Forsos Tavern is not suitable for those with dietary restrictions or are looking for fish or vegan dishes as it serves only a set menu of mainly meat dishes. The well... More
