About
A WARM WELCOME NOTE from Meze, our Cypriot taverna nestled in the Old Town of Limassol. What comes to mind when you hear ‘taverna’? A warm cosy atmosphere? Satisfying meals? Quality time with your friends and family? We believe this too. That’s why Meze remains a place to unwind and share time with those you care for most. This is not just a place for food, but for friendship. Our dishes are based on timeless recipes, and infused with passion for the joy they bring to our guests. Meze was built around togetherness, an ethos we took on with the tavern. We see it as an extension of our home, and any guests as an extension of our family. With this in mind, the food we share is simple, traditional and comforting. Yours, Pambinos and Family

My son and I ate in the Meze Taverna last night and I think I won’t be able to eat again for a week ! We chose the Meat Meze which has 19 different dishes, we assumed as there were just two of us it would be nice small portions. What a surprise when the huge side salad came out as an extra dish to start with. Every dish was so tasty and the atmosphere in there was so friendly and welcoming. Our lovely waitress even talked us into having Fried Ice Cream (my son) and Orange Pudding for me.. what can I say, both were outstanding desserts. If anyone has seen the Vicar of Dibley Christmas Special, we felt like we needed a tractor to get to the very handily placed car park 300 yards up the road ! A fantastic find, many thanks to Pambinos and his staff.

What an awesome restaurant this was, my wife, friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal at this family run restaurant. The owner Pam (who still speaks with an English accent) was a great host, very engaging and was keen to please every customer, her attention to detail was special and nothing was too much trouble for her or her colleagues. Had we have been staying for more nights, we would definitely have gone back a second time. The food was well cooked and presented, the choices on the menu were plentiful and there was something to suit all tastes.

Difficult for me to make an objective review as I was there for a late Sunday lunch, with just another table of 5 that came a bit later. Difficult situation for restaurants and all the hospitality industry as a matter of facts. Had a sausage starter that ended up being a sojok, handmade. Very tasty, a bit spicy. I then went for the meat moussaka and was quite disappointed: frozen but that is fine because difficult to prepare on the spot, but very dry. Cheese is supposed to be melting but it was not. I would like to return and try a larger range of dishes, there must be a reason this restaurant is top reviewed for quite some time now. Service was very friendly, consisting mainly of the owner on a quiet day. Price is very reasonable, you would pay much more elsewhere.

We went there for dinner last week. We ordered the Mezze menu with ouzo. Most of the food was served the first 10 minutes, before we could have a sip of Ouzo. The purpose of course is to increase the turn over of the tables. The food was oily and the meat was of poor quality and we didn't eat 90% of the main dishes. Never again

The quality of the Meze wasn't up to much. It was a total of 18 plates, 6 of which were dips for pitta bread, one was half a lemon cut into two quarters, another was a plate of slightly undercooked mushrooms, and a plate of chips was provided as 'potatoes'. The meat was nice and tasty, just not much of it in total for 18 plates. The service was great, the staff were really friendly. We were also given a complimentary dessert which was a nice touch. Reasonable price for the food and drink too.

This authentic Greek Cypriot restaurant was a delight to visit. The food was exquisite, so tasty and lots of vegetarian options that catered to us. The service was amazing, we were welcomed so warmly and the lovely lady even offered us these delightful Daktyla dessert which was so yummy. If we ever return to Cyprus we will be coming back for sure!

I only looked this restaurant up after I’d been there; for me it was a find while driving past, so I had no preconceptions. If I had to use only one word it would be: faultless. Fabulous home cooking with friendly attentive service; when you really think about it, what more should a restaurant offer? The menu isn’t pages long, just simple, classic Greek (Cypriot) dishes but still, it takes time to choose. From the home made starters I choose the hummus and bread and while I was enjoying this a small taster bowl arrived, a mushroom soup with truffle oil and garlic ‘on the house’. Just try this! I don’t like mushroom, but it was superb!. I ordered a main and wine and while I waited, another tempter arrived. A single slice of foraged mushroom, marinated in vinegar and then drizzled with drops of oil. I don’t like mushroom but this was superb! How can you do that twice in one meal?! When the bill arrived, I had chance to talk with the proprietor and when I said that for the quality of what I’d been served, I would have paid more, he told me his aim was not immediate profit, but that people should enjoy the experience and long to return. I will, and if you eat here so will you.

We've just returned from a visit to Limassol Cyprus, we went to this restaurant on our first night. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our daughter is Vegan, they offered her Vegan options which was quite refreshing. They also advised us how to order to keep the overall bill reasonable. There was plenty of food and with a beer and some soft drinks between 4 it came to 75 euros which we thought was value for money. Moreover they brought us complimentary greek dessert and for our daughter a plate of watermelon.

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 hungry teenage boys. I also have a severe allergy to paprika and chilli. Allergens were clearly identified on the menu. My allergies are rarely listed but the waiter was brilliant, checking all ingredients with the chef and advising on safe menu choices. They even offered to cook a bespoke meal! The food was great traditional greek fare, very plentiful, brilliantly cooked and great VFM. For those seeking a relaxed and traditional taverna meal and atmosphere I cannot recommend Meze highly enough. Amazing.

We came here for dinner after visiting the ruins, I was totally blown away. Amazing little restaurant. Located on a super cute street, we had a table outside, was such a lovely area, cute table on the street corner outside, we had the fish meze platter which was a variety of breads, dips, salads, cheeses and fresh fish, prawns, octopus. All for just 55 euros for 2 people. (With 2 alcoholic drinks) great service, beautiful atmosphere. An absolute treasure. Thank you xxxx

We have enjoyed lots of mezes around the world (especially at Dimitri's in Manchester)... but this place is exceptional. Great local ingredients cooked beautifully and served with a smile and genuine kindness. If you are ever in Limassol YOU MUST EAT HERE.

Great service, nice atmosphere, excellent food. The manager/owner (?) was so nice. When we asked for an extra plate to split a children's meal, he offered to serve the meal on two plates. It was more than enough food for the two children. The couple who ordered the fish meze kept getting more and more fish and seafood dishes, and my vegetarian meal was more than enough and very tasty, the spinach/cheese filo had a generous portion of filling and wasn't too doughy. The salad was great too, as were the salads that came with the fish meze.

As a restaurant Inspector, when abroad, I always look for authentic local restaurants serving traditional food in a traditional atmosphere which local people frequent. In this case, I was recommended Meze Taverna so I looked at the menu and decided to book a table. I was welcomed on arrival and ordered a Keo beer (local) and a margarita for my wise. The waitress, Concertina, came over to go through the dishes. I ordered as starters home made taramoslata with pitta bread and baby calamari. What a surprise!! The taramoslata was smooth and full of flavour and the baby Kalamari cooked to perfection, which was soft, with a fine, light and well seasoned batter, the best I have ever tasted, For a mains course, I wanted lamb and. Concertina recommended Keftiko, a dish unique to this tavern which were similar to ribs in shape but with no bone. It came with salad and sticky rice. The texture of the lamb was such that the meat just fell apart and was an exceptional dish, full of flavour and juicy, another star dish. My wife had the lamb cutlets, cooked medium and important you specify how they are grilled. I tried one and the flavour was so good. Generous portions. Diamiano constantly looked after our drinks whilst the owner, Pambinos sat down to ask how we enjoyed his dishes. The food was exceptional all round, the service complemented the food and the prices were more than reasonable. WE went there the following day for lunch before leaving and had the baby squid and meat moussaka. As good as the previous night.

We came for a meal out whilst on honeymoon and enjoyed great food and service here. All of the food we ordered was flavourful and fresh. There were a number of vegetarian options. We received bread and tzatziki on the house as well as a small sweet dessert. The staff were very friendly.

A visit to Limassol today brought about the need for a late lunch. We avoided the contrived and overpriced Marina area, and wandered the narrow streets of the old town, found this restaurant and we are very glad we did. Lovely, welcoming place, done very plainly, and no gimmicks. The food was fresh, well cooked and presented and VERY generous portions. A lovely, lively Greek atmosphere, with the owner and his son doing everything they possibly could to make sure you enjoyed your meal. We had the village salad to share, it was huge, with a big basket of warmed pitta. My husband had minced beef in aubergines with sauce, and I had the stiffado - beautiful. A carafe of very respectable rose, filled to the brim, and a complimentary plate of Greek cinnamon pastry sticks….such a truly enjoyable experience.
