Nice location and food good but felt service was poor. Seemed more interested in servicing and talking to what appeared to be their regulars. Felt very isolated and not particularly welcome.

Had the best night of my life at this restaurant, the food was mind blowing the entertainment was superb Rachel is great! The owners made us so welcome and the staff are brilliant, I honestly cannot say enough good things about this place. I wish it was near my home town In England, defiantly deserves its first place. Thankyou.... Jon,... More

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

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
