Best in famagusta area

Top quality mezze. Not the best on the island but one of the best places in the region. Recommended in the summer where you can sit outside and enjoy tge breeze. They are also one of the few to serve kleftiko all year round.

The restaurant is a converted house and the family running it are welcoming, kind and efficient. I had the Tapas meal which ran to several courses and each was superb. Beware don't eat too much bread because so much food is served!!!! All the guests on the evening we visited were local Cypriots and clearly many of them were frequent... More

During February there a only a few restaurants open around Protara and Ayia Napa,and Mousikos is one of those. We always book as they are busy most evenings,it is where Cypriots go to eat,always a good sign.We were the only Brits in there during the three nights that we went,we didn't feel out of place as we were made most...

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 meat dishes were...

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
