Absolutely LOVED this place. You have to try quite hard to find it as it's tucked away on a back street, but if you like great food, warm atmosphere and an authentic cuisine you will not be disappointed. There is no menu, just order in advance, lamb or chicken and then turn up and enjoy course after course of delicious... More

My husband and I had read previous reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to visit this restaurant. We had to book in advance as the food is all home-cooked fresh on the day and we were asked for our choice on the main course from a selection - no microwaved or re-heated courses here. On arrival - which we did... More

We were told to be prepared for a surprise and we weren't disappointed, all in a good way I should add. You must book in advance and be sure to take your camera as the venue is very unusual. The food although limited is sublime and apparently never ending You must try this one

My husband and I visited this little gem on the last night of a fantastic week North Cyprus. We wanted an authentic meal with traditional Meze and after reading reviews decided upon this place. We arrived to be seated by the owner in a homely and tranquil garden. There was no menu and as we hadn't booked he explained his... More

Having been disappointed with most of the food on offer in Kyrenia we were delighted by the meal we had at the Kyrenia Tavern. The only choice was chicken or lamb, to be arranged when you book, after that you sit back and enjoy the range of food brought to your table. The garden is a bit like eating in... More

After not being able to reserve a table last year we finally did today! First of all if you go don't eat for the whole day since you'll be served an endless amount of food, and also be aware that the pace of the dinner is slow as it should be, since the food is served in several phases. the...

We visited on the 13 August and visit every year. The home made food is fabulous and wonderful flavours. The restaurant is a complete one off, including the courtyard setting with quirky memrobelia.

It is like a scene in the movie, stepping through the wardrobe and into Narnia....and you find yourself in this very quirky setting, a few minutes walk from the Colony hotel. Its in the old town, and the garden area has beds and sofas as well as the restaurant seating. It is a family affair, mum, dad and son look... More

This is such a lovely place to go for a meal, we did on our last night in Kyrenia and it was the cherry on top of the holiday. Family run restaurant; Mum in the kitchen, Dad in the garden weaving flower garlands for the female customers and the Son waiting and serving. Quirky decor. All home cooked, fresh authentic... More

This is now where I look forward to heading whenever I am in Kyrenia - the food is outstanding and the hosts are superb. And to top it all the price is so very reasonable. What's not to like?
