“Very nice best of the holiday so far!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Was very happy with the meal that I had at moutstakanis. First of all we struggled to get a table as it was so busy - always a good sign!!

I ordered the mixed grill and it was priced at 13 euros which I thought was reasonable for the amount that I got. I got about six different meats/ cuts and this came with rice, veg and chips!! Everything was cooked to perfection and it was delicious!

My partner had the grilled chicken breast and was very happy with this although there was a bit that had a bit of blood in and that was the only downside.

All in all we were very happy with moutstakanis and will definitely be coming back!!!!

“Nothing diminishes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Having now been to the majority of restaurants in Polis this stands out purely from the welcome, friendliness atmosphere and not least the food which will be cooked and adapted to your needs. It is traditional Greek/Cypriot food at a reasonable price. If you return your face will not be forgotten!

“10 years on and still a great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Visited this restaurant twice while in Cyprus and it was excellent.
The service was superb and the food delicious.
We ate here 10 years ago when we stayed in Polis and came back to see if it was still as good as we remembered it and we were not disappointed.
We are a family with 2 children under 11. Our eldest did not want food from the child menu, but the restaurant was more than happy to serve her a half portion from the main menu. Nice fresh ingredients, well cooked and presented.
The waiters were very attentive.
The food, atmosphere and location lovely. Traditional Cyprus. We loved it.

We've been visiting Polis for years but this was the first time we ate in Moustakallis and we've been missing out!! Food was well cooked, plentiful and well presented. Staff were attentive and appeared to want us there! Definitely will go back.
