All the positives that you have heard are true. This is indeed one of the best tavernas in Limassol. Then food is great, well cooked, top ingredients. Al. The meats are particularly good. Forsos is or was a butcher I hear so he has top quality meat. The place is packed every night but the service is always fast and efficient. So are there any drawbacks in the place? Well, the place scores low marks in terms of ambiance. It is better in the summer but the atmosphere is certain,y not cosy. It does feels a bit like a factory. So perhaps a victim of his own success. Having said that. The food is fantastic. Prices are very good. Some would certainly go again.

It is a very popular place, so reservation is a must. It is a local tavern, with a nice large sitting area outside, in a nice shadow.

This place serves great food at great prices. in the summer the court yard is very scenic and in the colder times the inside is very well presented aswell. Have been here a few times and its a very popular place for tourists and locals. would highly recommend

After hearing about this place we were excited about going there,but in the end i wish that we did not.The service is slow,they call it cyprus meze but there is no hommus,no egg plant dip,only tahini dip which was terrible.Small salad,and about 12 meat dishes all greasy which made us sick the next day.We only ordered pepsi but the tried to charge us for a bottle of wine 15 euros but i caught them on that,very shifty.Even when the set menu is finished they don't even bring any fruits or sweets and they call it a cyprus meze?.If you want a fantastic cyprus meze go to the Aphrodite intercontinental hotel food court the meze is proper from start to finish.

This is a traditional taverna with top class local food.

Despite this it is very popular with tourists, who look for authentic Cyprus food.

It is one of the best local tavernas on the island.
