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.

Fabulous courtyard restaurant in a romantic setting. Food and service were everything you could want. Good choice of food and wine. Staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Very good value and a must if you want to eat in the heart of Kyrenia.

we found the Jacaranda and thought what a beautiful setting for my birthday on the Monday evening. Unfortunately the sign said closed Mondays! However, the owner just happened to be coming in and noticed our disappointment. We told him of our dilema and he said just one moment and I will have a word with the Chef, who agreed to... More
