The tavern is located in Sotira village, 10 minutes from Protaras and Ayia Napa. The food is made from local products and tastes deliciously. The meze is great and the portions are very large. They serve freshly baked bread and one of the best "Halloumi" in Cyprus!!! The staff is very friendly and the price is fair. If you want... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our Cypriot friends who live in Sotira, and we were not disappointed! This was one of the best authentic meals we have ever eaten, and we have eaten at a lot of Cypriot Tavernas in the last 3 years! The staff were really helpful. When we arrived they were fully booked, but as we... More

The Tavern is at Sotira village very near to Ayia Napa and Protaras. Is a traditional Tavern with authentic Cyprus food and quick and good service. Try the Meze, if you are too hungry, is more than enough, try good Cyprus wines or beer. You can also eat a la cart, the bread is fantastic, also souvla,kleftico, papoutsakia and mushrooms.For...

We decided to try this taverna since it was hailed as authentic. We were not disappointed with either the food or the surroundings. We went for the fish and meat meze and everything was excellent and much more than the three of us could eat. The courses seemed to be endlessly arriving and we ended up taking await the desert...

Best food in the Ayia Napa area. Definitely worth to take a taxi and go to Sotira village to enjoy this great food and atmosphere. Home made bread, cheese and homegrown vegetables. A trough delight to dine here.

This is the best tavern in Cyprus offering the highest quality Cypriot meze. I have visited a lot of taverns around Cyprus but Mousikos is the best one which I highly recommend!!!

There are many tavernas throughout Cyprus but unfortunately the majority are what locals call "tourist tavernas" with imitation, low quality mezedes. Mousikos is definitely the exception that is why he is well known throughout Cyprus. The mezedes served are top quality, genuine Cypriot specialities excellently prepared and presented! The whole halloumi baked slightly in the oven and sprinkled with sea... More

Very good food - but by far the best part of the meal was the fresh halloumi cheese. Worth a trip here for that alone! We visited on a recommendation from a staff member at the Grecian Park Hotel, who is from Sotira, so this place was always going to be a safe bet. From the reviews on here (and... More

This restaurant offers the best traditional food. The fresh homemade halloumi is the most delightful thing.All dishes were more than delicious. We ordered the full meze. At the end, we had the "Bourekia" desert. Yum :) The staff are friendly and the place is packed all the time.
