First visit we really liked the food, the atmosphere and the service. And it's a popular place, always busy but with plenty of space so that it was never full. From that meal it should have been a 4 or 5 star. However, second visit much less satisfactory. I'm a vegetarian and while meat meze and fish meze are ubiquitous... More

I have noticed this taverna before but never tried it. This afternoon I decided to have lunch here. Pleasant surroundings with some jazz lite playing in the background. I chose the Akamas King Prawns with a bottle of the dry Persephone. The wine was, as expected, fabulous - but here they use a proper wine holder to keep the bottle... More

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant regularly over the last 8 years, and it never fails to impress. The food is always excellent, the best Squid I have ever had, the service is exemplary and the atmosphere just right. Andreas and his team make everyone feel special. We were even invited to Andreas's sons wedding!!, it is... More

My wife and I spent two weeks in Cyprus during April and tried out many of the local restaurants. The one we kept going back to was Moustakalis - the food was great, the staff were very welcoming and the location was perfect. Highly recommended.

Visited Moustakallis Tavern 3 times in one week. The staff are welcoming and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The food is amazing and so delicious. It is very reasonably priced for such a fantastic restaurant. By our last night in Cyprus we felt we had made some new friends. Cannot wait to go back.

I have lived in the local area for just over 6 years, but have never visited this restaurant. Why, I don't know. It is a total gem. Friendly service, very clean and excellent food. This review is based on 2 visits. I enjoyed my first meal better, but we had local meze for our second meal and I have eaten... More

Chose this restaurant because of the numerous good reviews. Personell very friendly, but also very busy. Planning between starters and main too fast but food was very good. We had the Kleftiko which I can recommend everyone. Got a brandy from the house and for the kids a two-coloured juice cocktail. Nevertheless I can imagine that people come back over... More

We are currently on our third trip to Polis in two years. We love Moustakalis for its relaxed atmosphere and very welcoming staff. They seem to be able to make everyone feel they are VIPs so that now dinner at Moustakalis is dinner with friends. A very hard working team, including the owners, always acknowledge you whether it is your... More
