Mahmouts is not somewhere you would go to unless you were aware of the lovely kebab George serves. The restaurant appearance both inside and out is drab and very basic. However to those of us fortunate enough to be in Cyprus in the early 70's Mahmouts achieved legandary status. Last Monday 30 Jan 2017 seven of us went to Mahmouts... More

Been going to Mahmouts since 1978, has not changed much at all thank goodness. Best kebab, proper kebab not that gyro muck, in Limassol. To get anywhere near the quality you need to go to Akrotiri village. Make sure you are hungry.

Our first family visit to Mahmouts was way back in 1974 and our eldest daughter was just 1 and we where on a 3 year tour at RAF Akrotiri. This time it was holidays and with our youngest and she is 36. Well I can safely say over all this time Mahmouts has changed very little. Instead of George doing... More

Not a place to invite people for the location or the ambience, just good for food. We ordered pork and chicken souvlaki and were good but not the best i ever ate! They do not have a menu, and they serve either meze either kebab. Complimentary from the house they brought us halloumi, olives and tachini which was a very... More

To reiterate what all of the others have said I have been coming here since the early nineties. The food is excellent and great value for money too. George always tries to remember you and your family in true Cypriot style. It's such a shame that mahmouts isn't a little busier as it's such a gem amongst the standard golden... More

Visited Mahmouts in Limassol, not having been there for a number of years. First went to this place in 1976, then many times in the 80's. This is by far the best place that I have been to for a meze meal and still maintains that accolade. The quality of food and number of dishes, surpasses most others I have... More

Coming back to Cyprus after spending 3 years at the end of the 70's here. Was very pleased to be able to meet both George and his son and wife. As in previous reports, the food is excellent, just as it was nearly 40 years ago. Although George is looking a little more frail thes days, his Cypriot charm has... More

Visited Mahmouts very regularly from '86-89 whilst with the military at Episkopi, so on a recent visit to Limassol couldn't miss the opportunity to seek it out. The place hasn't actually changed a great deal with George still the owner, albeit older and a little fragile! Had kebabs with all the accompanying salads - exactly as they were - forgot... More
