This is now the 3rd time I have visited this wonderful local restaurant, the food as always is delicious, all homemade, & plentiful. The meze course is amazing with all the lovely dishes that are served to you. The olive bread is superb, be careful of olive pips. The fresh fruit at the end is amazing. I will definitely go... More

One word; Delicious! We were looking for some good traditional food and Meze (small turkish dishes as starter) and a nice environment and found all of it right here. Not just the Meze was amazing but the lamb meat main course was heavenly as well.And finaly a restaurant where they didnt serve french fries with the main course. If you... More

Definately worth a visit if only for the unusal setting. Food choice limited to lamb or chicken with a metze starter. Also a dessert with coffee and liquor included. So for 50TLire (£UK16.00) each excluding drinks it is reasonably priced. Not many covers in the courtyard so better to book.

if your forte is like ours, to try authentic local cuisine then you may like this spot, it is the same meal procedure every night(except Sunday) we found it bland, but that is our taste, the place its self is reminiscent of steptoe & son but adds to the quirkiness the old gentleman that runs it has all his faculty's...

Whilst on holiday with 3 friends we decided to visit this what we thought to be an amazing restaurant (by the reports on trip advisor!) Sadly not so ......being foodie people we all like restaurants that are true to the locality so thinking this was just right we booked - on booking we were informed of the set menu -... More

I wish the last two reviews had been posted before we ate here earlier this month. We arrived for the evening menu looking forward to what the reviews promised would be a very pleasant experience. It certainly is unusual and friendly, but we're quite sure it would never meet UK hygiene requirements. The food was average, but our particular gripe... More

We have visited Cyprus many times and know what the local Turkish Cypriot food should taste like. Recently, whilst on holiday we went to The Kyrenia Tavern and having read the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor our expectations were high. When we booked we were told that it would be a set menu, which was not a problem; Mezze to... More

A friend found this so we thought we would try it, On first seeing the Kyrenia Tavern you think its a bit of a mish mash of quirkey bits and bobs, get past that and you meet the very elderly couple who run it with their son, who used to work in Bromley and central London in very well known... More
