Great views!

My friend and I decided to spend our last night here as a treat, rather than eating at our hotel. The hotel booked for us and a driver from Kybele came to collect us at the arranged time. We were seated inside as it was a slightly chilly evening and at first were disappointed that we couldn't see... read more

The title of my review says it all. If you need a rest or want to take in ambiance of the Bellapais Abbey, stop and have a tea or a bite of dessert. The rest of the food is mediocre.

Kybele has stunning views from Bellapais down toward Kryenia and Oznakoy, but this is its strongest point. Two visits in two weeks resulted in distinctly average food which wasn't very hot and slow service. We won't be rushing back.

This restaurant is in the most wonderful setting, like most I found it by wandering through the abbey and stopping for a few drinks. The staff are all lovely and let us chose a table in a prime position even though we were just staying for drinks. We were spoiled for choice where to look. We had the view over... More

This restaurant enjoys a stunning setting with amazing views of the coast and the sunset but we can think of little else to recommend it. The calamari tasted as though it was fresh from the freezer, the chips ditto and the baked prawns fresh from the microwave while the service was equally disappointing.

The restaurant is set high in the grounds of Bellapais abbey, with windows all round so the view is great. Yesterday we just wanted a light lunch so I has a hot chicken salad & glass of wine. The salad was one of the best I had had anywhere, colourful, tasty served in an attractive bowl. It filled me up... More

We had dinner here last night and the overall experience was good. The place is a bit touristic to be frank but the food we had was good and the prices are very reasonable. Service too was good and the wine are reasonable priced. But more than anything else is the location: in front of the Abbey that is floodlighted... More

Was nice food, although they put sauce all over my dinner which I didn't like but still ate it! There was no atmosphere in the restaurant but may just be the time of the year! Portions are small but nice, ideal for someone that doesn't eat a lot
