Go by taxi as you'd struggle to find yourself - looks nothing from the road but once inside you'll find a very nice bar and a very welcoming garden. Quite small - so booking recommended. They have live music on Wednesdays and Saturdays. English owner - very friendly staff - first class meal would definitely like to return next time... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a fellow guest at The Colony. Wow!! what a find!!. The food is exceptional, perfectly presented, perfectly prepared and exceeded the standard of food we have eaten at many 'high profile' restaurants such as The Ritz, Claridges etc. You MUST visit Efendi's.

Four of us went to Effendi on a Saturday evening (we rang up and got a last-minute booking). The service was excellent, wonderful atmosphere, plenty of space between the tables, and the food was the best we have had in North Cyprus (been going there for around 7 years now). Background music/singing from Rachel, who had a lovely voice, and... More

It looks a bit quirky when you arrive but the service and food are excellent, best steak we had during our stay.

Everything about Efendi was delightful from the moment we stepped through the door. Located in a narrow lane on the old Turkish Quarter, the exterior gives away nothing of the space nor pleasure that lies within. The bar is dark but welcoming and leads out through traditional arches, into a charming courtyard where the tables are set around the centrepiece... More

Many thanks for your review. We will pass your compliments onto the team. Regarding the currency due to the fluctuation of the Turkish lira we had to change our menus to GBP sterling so that tourists and ex pat locals could understand what they were paying. It does get ever so confusing for us as our suppliers charge in US$,... More

We decided to go to Efendis last night after a friends recommendation and we were not disappointed. The ambience in the walled courtyard/garden is beautiful and the staff are very knowledgeable especially Mohammed who knew so much and was very interesting to talk to. My husband had Uruguayan steak for his main course and said it was delicious by far... More

Tucked away down a side street but well worth seeking out. Super garden area with lovely ambiance. Service very friendly, helpful and efficient. Food was all excellent. Wine was superb too.
