Superb dinner and excellent service

Tucked away in a side street a few hundred metres south of the Colony Hotel is the excellent Efendi, a restaurant run by Brits and expats and delivering first-class cuisine and service in a charming and relaxed setting. If you are looking for good food, well prepared and served with care and a... read more

I have visited this restaurant many times but my last visit whilst nice not exceptional. We booked our table and were suitably accommodated in the garden albeit the lighting was not good. The menu was interesting and varied. The mushroom stuffed with blue cheese was tasteless in that the cheese overpowered anything else on the plate and the duck again... More

Thank you Simon for finding the time to write a review, we can't apologise enough about finding the sauce over powered the main ingredient, it would have been more helpful if we had known about it on the night, but will pass your complaint to the head chef. Regarding the sterling, we have been a sterling restaurant for 2 years... More

Food and surroundings were amazing, staff attentive without being in your face. This is not the place to come if you want authentic cypiot food but if you fancy a change of food then well worth a visit. Higher end of the spectrum, price wise if you live here but very reasonable going by English restaurant prices. We will be... More

Myself and four friends had a gorgeous evening here this week. We were a pain in the bum taking ages to choose and playing silly games yet the staff were patient, friendly, attentive and a pleasure to be served by. They noticed things like topping up our wine, helping me take my jacket off, closing the back door when it... More

The modest exterior belies the charm of the interior decor and this quality of design is amply matched by the quality of the food on offer. We were four people and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the great dishes, starters, mains and desserts, not to mention decent wine. I would say that this restaurant is at the high end of... More

Five of us dined here Easter Sunday and as usual it didn't disappoint. Choices on the set menu were good, including roast chicken, or pork or beef as mains. The menu prices are in £ sterling but you can pay in Turkish lire. There is a well stocked bar and choice of wines to accompany the delicious food. A lovely... More

It now seems that Efendi is an institution in Kyrenia and actually the food is very good as well the atmosphere and the service. The only thing is that if you are a local you will find out that the Sunday Lunch menu is...the same! Nevertheless is well worth a visit!

We went to this restaurant as it is no. 1 on Tripadvisor. We had not realized just how British it would be......even the prices are in G.B. pounds. The food, service and staff were all very good but we were disappointed with the dining experience as the restaurant was taken over by rather showy expats. The owner was a delightful... More
