We have been there last Saturday and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Very nice traditional food but the best is the fresh halloumi. Unbelievable taste. You should visit Mousikos at your next stay in Protaras or Ayia Napa

The food at Taverna Mousikos was out of this world - we thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a delightful little taverna, well worth the drive out of Ayia Napa. We were seated in a very pretty courtyard, sitting underneath the passionfruit vines - it was also great to see lots of herb bushes and fruit trees lining the outskirts of... More

A wonderful break from the costal tourist scene, best done at night. Be sure to make a reservation to ensure you get a table. The food is excellent (seafood, pork ribs, grilled meats, lots of starters to choose from), the wine list is good, and the service is attentive.

Mousikos is a traditional Greek Cypriot tavern that provides excellent value for money. We will be back!

Taverna Mousikos offers a great selection of meze and possibly the best halloumi on the island. The food is served on a charming terrace under a beautiful passionfruit vine. The staff is friendly and prices affordable.

Mousikos tavern serves a very good meze with a wide variety of choices, from traditional slow cooked lamb to home made haloumi cheese..., preferable during the summer where you sit under the grape vines and admire the traditional old building which has been lovingly restored. Very good service and a good selection of wine .Highly recommended.

I have found out (the hand way) that you can not easily find good LOCAL food in tourist areas. The tavern ''Mousikos'' can be found in an unknown agricultural village (Sotira), 8km from the Ayia Napa tourist area and serves good local food for reasonable prices. Don't forget to book in advance (3-4 days in advance for Saturdays) and always... More

Mousikos Tavern at Sotera village is the Cypriot tavern par excellence! It serves a number of dishes, the most desirable being the traditional “meze” – an assortment of small-quantity dishes. The food is very tasty, high quality and very stomach-filling. The waitresses are very courteous and helpful and service is very efficient. The food takes some time to arrive (approximately... More

Another great meal at Mousikos. Went with our friends from the UK and had a fantastic meal and time. The tavern was packed and had a lovely atmosphere. The service and the food excellent as always.

This taverna is off the beaten track but it is always full with a waiting list most evenings. The setting is idyllic in the village of Sotira with a huge windmill overlooking one end of the taverna which holds well over 100 persons in their gardens. The food is Mezze style and comes out very quickly. The highlight is halloumi... More
