It has a fantastic view especially at night! If u don't have a car you can always tell them to pick you up when you make the booking. Bit more priced than an average restaurant but the food is nice and the setting is priceless.

This is by far and away our favourite place to lunch in Kyrenia, due mainly to the stunning location. Perched high on the hills above Kyrenia, the outside tables take in the panoramic sweep of Kyrenia bay, with the ruins of Bellapais Abbey on one side and views to St.Hilarion castle to the south west. The views go a long... More

We've just returned from Northern Cyprus. One of the many restaurants we visited was The Kybele in Bellapais. We had been to this restaurant before in autumn 2012 and had been very impressed by the service and the quality of the food. We booked by phone. We were greeted warmly on arrival and taken to our table. There was just... More

The views from this restaurant were spectacular as was the food. Advised by guide to ask for Fixed Menu and wasn't disappointed, just need to have a good appetite to be able to eat it all! Not over priced and watching the sun setting was beautiful.

We chose Kybele upon Trip Advisor recommendation, and booked a sunset table in advance. The setting was stunning - we took some magnificent photographs, however the service did not meet our expectations. The food was good. Would definitely recommend a visit, just don't expect a world class service.

This was the 2nd time myself and partner had been here. We hadn't booked a table this time but when we arrived the staff were very efficient in setting one up and taking out orders. The views of the monestry is amazing and the music and ambience is delightful. Would definately come here again.

This was a lovely scenic setting by the abbey and over looking bellapaise. However, lunch was poor. The pinacolada just tasted like baileys milk and the edible basket that the mushrooms came in tasted like it had been fried in old oil. My partner had spag bol which had hardly any sauce and there was no offer of parmesan and... More

Beautiful, tranquil setting in the grounds of the old Bellapais monastery. During the evening the monastery is lit up & looks beautiful, providing a fantastic backdrop. Food & overall dining experience was disappointingly average, & while the setting is beautiful, there are frankly better places to dine out. Service wasn’t the best, not very attentive. The staff need to pay... More
