Lovely

Quite a stunning view up in Bellapais looking over Kyrenia and wonderful up close views of the Abbey. Service was pleasant and non intrusive, certainly from the Cypriots servers, less can be said about the oriental female servers. The flat bread served is delicious. As are the olives and... read more

Well what can I say! An absolutely amazing location set in the monastery grounds and with stunning views. Breathtaking! Courtesy car transported us to and from the restaurant. Reasonably priced. Staff were helpful and friendly. The food was lovely. My partner had the steak which was fantastic. I had the vegetarian option, which was pleasant, but not too much choice... More

A stunning venue in the grounds of the Abbey, however the service was a bit rushed and the food, whilst very good, did not warrant the massive price difference compared to other places. Would still go back for the setting alone though...

This restaurant is worth a visit purely on the views that it offers. Set in the town of Bellapais, you get amazing views of the city below, the mountains behind you, the Bellapais monastery and the sea. As for the food, it is of a good standard. Not the best kebab in North Cyprus by a long shot, but everything... More

Don't go for the food. Salad was dry with grocery-store beef. Meze was not good. Everything did not seem to be cooked by a chef!

Last visited some years ago, but still an excellent meal in a beautiful location overlooking Kyrenia. We were picked up and returned to our hotel. The food was great sirloin steak and lamb chops, well served by very friendly staff at a reasonable price. We enjoyed a great evening. Thank you

We had the pleasure of being wedding guests at this beautiful restaurant venue, and later returned midweek for a quiet lunch for two. Location and views breathtaking, and on both ocassions excellent quality delicious food, very well cooked and presented, with great service and ambience. Highly and unreservedly recommended! In addition, great value as very reasonably priced.
