Lovely!

The restaurant is lovely and cosy, the fire was welcome given the weather and the staff couldn't be more helpful- even helping us teach our daughter to play noughts and crosses!

My husband and I had Sunday Lunch at Efendi. I wouldn't say that this is one of the best meals I have ever had but it was definitely the best Sunday Lunch that we have had so far on this island. The restaurant is tucked away in the old Turkish quarter of Girne (Kyrenia); inside it is charming and tastefully... More

We're going back to TRNC in March and were wanting to know if they will be doing their amazing Sunday lunch?

Myself and my husband visited Efendi twice during our stay in Kyrenia as we were so impressed by our first visit. The restaurant was lovely and cosy with a wood burner keeping everyone nice and warm and the waiting on staff were friendly and helpful. On our first visit I had mushrooms stuffed with stilton and then I had sea... More

Since my last review I have been back to Efendis four times one evening and three Sunday lunches all have been super. Sunday lunch on Jan 4th was particularly good with maybe the best lamb shank I have ever had, starter of Calamari and dessert of lemon cheesecake was also first class, truly a wonderful afternoon which was enjoyed by...

We were over in Kyrenia for Christmas and had dinner at the Efendi. The staff were very welcoming and friendly in the nice cosy ambience in the restaurant. The service was first class, as was was the food, with an excellent choice of dishes and wines on offer at very reasonable prices. Don't be put off by the surrounding area,... More

Efendi's is one of the exceptional restaurants in Kyrenia. It is classy. The menu is ala carte and different from the other restaurants. And very tasty. It has a cosy atmosphere.It has its own energy. The location is also nostalgic. You walk through old Kyrenia to reach it. Is the price reasonable? No:) But it is worth a try.

Best steak in Kyrenia or broader N. Cyprus. Nice atmosphere. Nice waiters. I guess what gives me mixed feelings and kinda surprises me is the two tines I had steak there, good both times, the bread was not fresh, the coke was flat. Still, since my steak was pretty good, i'd recommend but those little things took a star away... More

Myself and my wife visited my parents in N Cyprus a number of times and until now had never visited Efendi, even though it is ran by friends of my mother. On our most recent trip we decided on Efendi as the place for our last meal on the island (this trip). We were most definitely not dissappointed, the food... More

Had Sunday lunch two weeks running. Both times table for 8. The second time because we could not think of going anywhere else that was better. Food excellent and we were looked after very well from the service point. My only comment is that the wine, especially the low end wine is priced too high. Makes it what you would... More
