Ate here twice and enjoyed both nights. The place isn't fancy or particularly attractive compared to some of the other premises in the village but the fact that locals eat here says a lot. Half price on some nights making it probably the best value in Pissouri. Recommend the Stifado. Service was prompt and polite.

We always visit the moonlight taverna when In Pissouri. Our hosts Mario and Antoni welcome us with open arms. The menu offers traditional grilled meats- souvlaki, Steftalia, kebabs, pork chops, salads as well as fresh seafood dishes. Excellent calamari. Also a range of other dishes. Great mixed grill with haloumi. There is a well stocked bar that includes some good... More

Had a Stifado, and was the best I have ever tasted! Staff are very helpful and happy, even on half price food night. Will defiantly be visiting again!

Always a warm welcome at the Moonlight, we are treated like old friends. The menu is appropriately traditional, in traditional surroundings, so it is a taste of Old Cyprus that a traveller would recognise. The view across Pissouri Bay in the evening gives the Moonlight Tavern its name and lends itself to a romantic meal but would just as happily... More

Our first night in Pissouri and a billiant choice of venue. The service was prompt considering it was very busy. Excellent moussaka and halloumi. Limited vegetarian choice. Plenty of salads or omelette though.

I've known this taverna for 30 years or so. The same pair, Marios and Antonis, still run it, and are v friendly and helpful. Good local food at reasonable prices. Half-price food on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. On the edge of Pissouri village, heading in the beach direction. Well worth a visit.

The chef here doesnt understand what a blue, rare or medium steak is. Yet they happily charge €20 per steak. Everything came well done. The meat portion was very small and overcooked...and not worth the price paid. Waiter/ Co-Owner was very friendly until bill queried quite reasonably. Then he flew into a rage...leading me to suspect the smiles & bonhomie... More

The Moonlight is a traditional family run taverna and offers lots of homely Cypriot dishes. The moussaka we had here was really very good and a generous size too. The village wine, served in a lovely carafe, was truly delicious. They have special offers on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with half price mains and meze. It is very popular with... More

Fabulous friendly small tavern. Wonderful food that is very reasonably priced. We ate here on many occasions and we were never disappointed. The view of the moon is the best view from any of the restaurants in Pissouri. The owners make you feel like friends ..would definitely recommend this great taverna
