Again an unforgettable experience

The evening begins with the family welcoming you and the food is traditional and amazing as always. To complete the meal the fruit display is a "wow" factor not to be missed followed by the choice of local liqueurs. It was good to see Mamma well.

Four of us went for a birthday meal on 2/12/15. The Tavern was fantastic. The family who welcomed us are wonderful people and their restaurant skills are 100% across the board. We had amazing, authentic, freshly made food, served in a delightfully quirky dining room. We hadn't asked about the cost and after extensive mezzie, slow roast lamb, cypriot pudding,... More

This restaurant is literally just down the road from us but we have not been there for a couple of years. We have been missing out on a delightful food experience, warming homemade lentil & mandarin soup, delicious fresh mezze, lovely pre-ordered lamb & a fruit mountain, coupled with a cozy, authentic Cypriot dining room & attentive family members to...

Service: No issues unless you are looking for fast meals and leaving ASAP. If you are then this may not be the place for you. It seems everything is prepared from scratch and slowly cooked to perfection. I really don't like that cliche but an exception must be made in this case. Food: Local cuisine cooked with a passion in... More

Our family of 4 (including 2 vegetarians) enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Kyrenia Tavern. The meze was amazing....a table full of small appetizers with something for everyone. We loved them so much it was hard to save room for the main course. My husband and I had the lamb which was tender and well seasoned, with roasted vegetables and... More

Last time we tried to come here, it was fully booked, so this time we went there as soon as we arrived in Kyrenia. It turned out that we were the only guests that night and we were made to feel like royalty! The food was varied and mouth watering, one of the tastiest mezzes I have eaten. The starters... More

Cypriot family with true passion in serving good food. It is not your conventional restaurant. We were confused when we got in but when the food started coming, our opinion changed. Ahmet was a Master of Ceremonies and besides being genuinely friendly (although visibly tired), he also had time to engage with everyone and entertain us with his stories. We... More

Had a great meal here. Took the advice of other reviewers and booked in advance. We had a meze which was really good. Home cooked olive bread was amazing. We accepted the owner's wine recommendation and had a nice bottle of red. Service was great throughout and we were made to feel really welcome. The restaurant was basically in the... More

We went as a group of 6 about 1 year ago and to be fair the kitchen struggled , the ambience is very rustic and true to style and on a warm balmy evening the mozzies love our skin , It would be a better lunch date . The food is very well cooked but sometimes slow to arrive but... More

If you want a quick meal, this is not the place for you! This is a whole evening culinary experience. They have one sitting, a choice of two main dishes plus a vegetarian option, a small select dining area (in the garden of a suburban bungalow opposite a garage and a Fire Station) in an unpretentious part of town.
