O Mpaxes Taverna

“O Mpaxes Taverna” is the new destination for delicious Cypriot meze in Limassol. Although only open for a few months now, this new restaurant located in the Agia Fyla area, has fast become a popular choice for local foodies looking for an authentic taste of traditional Cyprus. Housed in an old mansion on 1st April Street, the restaurant boasts a beautiful outdoor courtyard for dining under the trees. Guests to this local hot-spot can enjoy mouth-watering Cypriot delicacies such as tomato with eggs, arugula with eggs, zucchini with eggs, halloumi cheese, sausage, sheftalia, kebab and fresh fried potatoes. One or two cooked dishes are also served daily. The speciality of the house is none other owner and chef Panicos’ take on the Cypriot Souvla. Guests can accompany their meal with a bottle of red or white wine bottled in Crete. Every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, live folk music is played at the restaurant to add an extra touch of the authentic Cyprus vibe to your evening.
