Another Fantastic Meal at Kybelle

Very beautiful restaurant. Very scenic - one side the view of Kyrenia and the sea and on the other the magnificent Bellapaix Abbey. Pretty much a win win situation for the Kybelle. The lamb was cooked just right. There is a tendency in Cyprus to over cook meat - it was cooked perfectly. Very... read more

During my trip to North Cyprus this month, we visited the restaurant at Bella Paisley Abbey on 2 occasions. The setting is magnificent... Next to the beautiful monastery. On the second visit, we managed to get my brother's favourite table... With a sheer drop down the mountain... Not for the faint-hearted! On both occasions, the food was beautifully presented...

This was our 4th visit to Kybele. The views are still outstanding but the food is now poor. Each year the standard has dropped a little but this year it had changed drastically. This is embarrassing as we recommended Kybele to a number of friends who have visited N. Cyprus. All came back with similar reports about the poor quality... More

The view from our table was breathtaking. However it was let down by indifferent service food was plonked down without a smile or a word. The meat was grilled very well and of good quality. However the potato wedges were hard and the vegetables oddly both undercooked and waterlogged. They seemed like they had been sitting in warm water for... More

After level visits over the last few years, this will be our last!! We were disappointed by the stranded of the service, we understand it might not be fast if the venue is busy, but on this occasion it wasn't too busy. At the start the table wasn't set only one set of cutlery was provided for both starter and... More

I live in Cyprus and take visitors from the UK to see the beautiful monastery and then have a meal at Kybele Restaurant. In the last 5 years the service and quality of food has deteriorated to the point I won't be going with any visitors anymore. Yes we will go and look at the magnificent views but eat else... More

What a fantastic place. This was our 3rd visit and was the best yet. Two courses, beers, wines, coffee etc for £15 per head with stunning views. Would recommend going after 7 as it's a bit too hot before the sun goes down.

We ate here in July 2015 and it was delicious. We sat on the side of the restaurant that overlooks the mountains and the sea, it was like being up in a treehouse - Wonderful watching the sun set over the sea as we ate. The service was good and the food was delicious, very big portions and we probably... More
