Just to let all readers/viewers know that this restaurant has sadly closed down, it will be missed! Yes, it was a little more expensive than many others, yes there was sometime a limited choice but it was good, well prepared food which was a little different! The only thing that I did not like was the live music which was... More

I am not surprised that the restaurant has closed down! The owners do not know how to run a restaurant. There only intention was to make a lot of money in little time. I can not understand the good reviews they were getting, very good they are out of business

Hopefuly they have gone on a cooking course and personality checkup..I can't believe the good reviews for this place but then again it's north Cyprus and most of the English people there do not know what good food looks like or tastes Like...surprising when there are so many great resturants in uk.

Just to let everyone know Midsummer House is now closed as the owners have retired. I live in Catalkoy and it was in the local English speaking newspaper. Very sad

It's amazing how people can get different impressions of the same restaurant by visiting on different nights, or having different choices from the menu. Our experience was definitely not the same as the positive ones posted by other TA reviewers. We visited the Midsummer on the occasion of our wedding anniversary - it was our special meal of the holiday.... More

Staying in Esentepe it is a 25+ minute drive to Midsummer House, but the journey is well worth it! Everything about the place is lovely - the location, the building, the gardens, the staff and of course the food!! We visited a number of times during our two week holiday in Cyprus trying different choices from the menu and couldn't... More

What a beautiful place this is...... We decided to finish our holiday Thursday 10th October with a visit to Midsummer house. We had our daughter partner and granddaughters with us and the service was top class..... Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at Midsummer House. We have visited this restaurant several times over the past four years taking... More

Having stayed in Catalkoy for the week, we visited Midsummer for Sunday lunch before returning to England. The restaurant is set in a gorgeous well maintained garden with a beautiful interior. The staff were very friendly and efficient, the 3 course meal was perfect and there was a lovely ambience. Altogether a perfect dining experience. It may have been the... More

I have to strongly agree with all the bad reviews.. Read them put them all together and thats exactly what we feel.. We would have given the food back but because we were in the middle of nowhere and we had an elderly person with us we had no choice but to eat what we had on our miserable plates.... More

WOW, i am so shocked by this review i remember these people very well ( they were nice and friendly). They just had main meals which were all eaten with clean plates, a table check was done as per usual and all were happy and commented to our waitress how fantastic the food was.At no point did they suggest that...
