Overrated and over advertised place

Previous summer my family went there together with our friends. We had a meat and a fish meze. The fish meze was terrible! I mean may be it was ok for any small unknown place in a touristic area, but not for such a famous restaurant that everybody go there to celebrate different events. I think the... read more

We visited taverna mousikos two days ago. Even though it was a Wednesday it was quite busy and for the winter time in cyprus around these villages that can only mean that it is a really great tavern. It has a really nice scenery and beautiful traditional decoration, with pictures from greek traditional musicians. The service is really great and... More

However many times we eat out at Mousikos the results are always excellent. Their meze is fantastic especially the whole halloumi cooked in the oven and the Kleftico in the Pot. The restaurant was very busy the atmosphere great and the staff so friendly. We will be back again and again.

Great service, incredible food and attention to detail by the helpful staff make your visit memorable! I had not tasted the culinary delights of this tavern for a couple of years and tended to forget what a truly great place it is. I felt really rewarded by my return visit! You must try the fresh halloumi and the kleftiko! I... More

I have to agree with what most people say about this restaurant especially the fresh halloumi, we ate here twice and both times the food and service was superb. A cab each way will cost you the same from Ayia Napa and Protarus - about 16 euros each way. You have to book in high season so bare that in... More

We had mini meze for four. Everything was fresh and perfectly cooked. Even the bread was exceptional! If you don't order meze do n forget to include in your order the home made halloumi! We ordered an extra salad and they didn't charge it.

Taxi driver recommended this restaurant to us. Off the usual tourist track. Very popular with Cypriots which is always a good sign. Lots of history attached to the building and what a nice building it was too. Friendly staff who recommended the fresh Halloumi rather than the grilled. It came out warm with salad and a freshly baked loaf. It... More
