Although we stay near Paphos for our week's holiday in September, we invariably drive over to Polis and are inevitably drawn to this lovely, friendly restaurant. This year we visited twice for lunch - excellent both times - and it was good to see the additional seating area that has been created. Three generations of the family were there at... More

This restaurant looks great and service is quick, friendly and welcoming but our food just didn't match up. Our party had a variety of meat, fish and veggie dishes and although all were fine, none was exceptional which is a shame as we were really hoping that it would match the very warm welcome. Chips were soggy, beans and carrots... More

So that holiday we spent seeing our daughter there and then haveing a late meal at Moustakallis. The food was extremely good,... More

After several variable meals in other restaurants in the area, we really enjoyed our meal at Moustakallis on our last night - wish we had found it before. Good quality and well cooked local food, friendly and helpful staff and a nice atmosphere. Definitely recommend it.

Great place for meeting friends for a lovely dinner. Good menu with plenty to choose from with lots of the Cypriot favourites. The filet steak is defiantly recommend. So tender! Lots of food on your plate too. The staff are friendly and it's a busy place. Worth a visit.

Myself and my husband stayed in Paphos in July. We purposely went to Polis just so that we could go to Moustakallis having been there many times on our travels to Cyprus. If anyone has a problem if they speak to Andy or any of the staff it will get sorted asap, with probably a free drink or two!!!! Think... More

We received a lovely warm welcome on the Cypriot music night. My husband had all traditional Cypriot dishes and he wasn't disappointed. Our son had stuffed vine leaves and a steak diane which he said was delicious. The sea bass was over cooked and flavourless ~ shame. And the chicken Kiev dry with no butter oozing from it. The red...

Came here after a long walk day walking at about 11pm and were welcomed in still despite the time. The staff were very friendly and the smells from the kitchen were amazing. We chose olives and tahini to nibble on then were presented with hot pitta bread, for mains octopus salad and mixed grill which were equally huge and filling.... More

With so many taverna's to choose from we found the staff welcoming, the layout attractive with plenty of space. The menu was extensive as was the wine selection. When we asked for a vegetarian mezze,the chef was very accommodating and produced an excellent selection of dishes. Food arrived fresh, well presented and hot. The quantity was more than enough (four... More

Have now been three times to this restaurant. First time was poor to say the least. Second time took my daughter as she had never been before. Third time will defiantly be the last. Food was mediocre! Service was appalling asked for my bill and thirty five minutes later we got it. There are much much better restaurants in polis.... More

SKyriakos, Guest Relations Manager at Moustakallis Tavern, responded to this review

Dear Guest, We appreciate the criticism good or bad. But to be fair we don't believe that you are a genuine reviewer. Let's assume that you are though. You have asked for the bill. If it took 5-10 minutes and you haven't got it, probably the waiter have forgot it. You were timing us instead of ask for it again... More
