“excellent cyprus meze in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

if you are in the mood for cyprus meze, then Forsos is definitely recommended. The food is well cooked and there are some signature dishes you don't usually find. The liver souvlaki is great (crunch on the outside succulent on the inside).

The yard is very nice with rustic cyprus countryside touches (don't know how it looks inside) and the serving was great even though the place was packed.

a lot of food though (Typical for cyprus meze) and you have to pace yourself in order to be able to taste everything.

“Mass production when too busy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Disappointed in the quality of the food at this restaurant. We were a party of 4 and sat at the outdoor patio on a lovely October Thursday night. The restaurant was very busy and as such did not allow us to order 'a la carte' the dishes that our table would have selected. Food was ordinary mee, having been out to many othe replaces in Limasol for mere in the past few years this place would not make my short list of places to return. IF I were to take a shot at going back I would go on a slower night like a Tuesday or something and hope the food would seem less 'mass production- buffet-like.

“A real Cyprus "meze"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Located up on the mountains few minutes away from Limassol town it offers a full range traditional Cypriot food . All very tasty especially meat cooked on the charcoal and the seasonal vegetables cooked in that special way that they meld in your mouth. A great gastronomic experience. Very good prices too.

“Best meze in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We have frequented this place for several years and will always take visitors to it. In summer the outside courtyard is great, the interior in winter is also nice. The menu is always "meze" (albeit with seasonal touches) but as long as you are prepared for this that is fine. The food comes thick and fast but is always of high quality and you can keep your table all night long. Staff are friendly and the wines/beers are sensibly priced. Important for us they also offer decent local wine from Kyperounta rather than the "crap" that usually gets put out at tourist tavernas at inflated prices. Atmosphere is always lively and local Cypriots and ex-pats are all fond of it.
