nice food, nice environment...

I was on a business trip. I dont normally prefer to dine in the restaurants of the hotel I stayed in, but the place (at the backyard of the hotel) seemed so surreal with the lights, stone walls and the stairs. The food was fresh and delicious. The staff was so friendly. Thanks for the night guys!

We have visited this restaurant over the years (Set Pizza, Set Restaurant, Jacaranda) and always enjoyed the courtyard ambience (with a stone 'Romeo & Juliet balcony' for photo ops! We were disappointed to see the review saying it was closed in 2014 but delighted that we have just booked for tomorrow night...

This has been our favourite 'in town' Kyrenia restaurant for many years and I have reviewed it previously, with a solid five 'stars'. Consequently, we were very disappointed to find that it has not opened to the general public in 2014 and is being used only in conjunction with the adjoining Set Hotel, which is in the same ownership. Hopefully,... More

A delightful place, on one of the small streets behind the harbour. You go through a doorway into a beautiful inner courtyard with trees set on several levels. On the night we were there the owner was helping out with the service but took the time to speak to diners. lovely chap. Service was good, delivered with a smile, food... More

While business down at the harbour restaurants was very quiet, the Jacaranda which is only a street away was full. Booking is definitely advised. A beautiful setting. Staff were friendly, efficient and attentive. The food was very good although the menu included a lot of fish and not much in the way of local dishes. Will certainly eat there again... More

The Jakaranda has to have one of the nicest settings in the old town of Kyrenia although obviously the harbour setting also takes some beating. The ancient ruins of a once beautiful mansion open up to create a romantic courtyard in which Romeo and Juliet would not be out of place. Classical music, the calls from a nearby mosque and... More

Jakaranda used to be called Set Ristaurant Italiano, although it has always been owned by Kemil, who is Turkish, as are the other members of staff. There are a few 'Italian' dishes on the menu but it was the courtyard 'Romeo and Juliet' setting which justified the old name. Excellent food, professionally presented. Kemil owns Set Fish Restaurant, on the... More

The beautiful courtyard, the wonderful meal and the attentive and diskrete service made the evening the best on our vacation. I had choosen the set menu, and it was with delicious mèze and for main course a sea bream, my husbond had lamb chops - alle very very good. Thank you, we hope to be back next year.

Tucked away near the harbour- (see map) next to the mosque this restaurant (uo a few steps) in a very old stone courtyard is a perfect pace for a meal. 45lire for a meze and main course plus a la carte. The staff are lovely. We went to book a table and we ordered a glass of wine each and... More

Good stylish courtyard restaurant. Good fresh fish but with other dishes to tempt. The menu is not extensive but it is quality. The wine is cheap enough but the quality is rather poor. Nice eatery for a romantic evening.
