“Fabulous setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

High-up in the ruins of Bellapais Abbey with spectacular views across the landscape, a visit to Kybele is a must. Personally prefer it at night when the surroundings are illuminated but, if you're going outside of high season, take a jacket as it can be a bit breezier than down at your beach resort hotel.

Since the nearby Old Bell Tower burnt down, which was an excellent restaurant, it seems to have got a lot busier and a little more hectic but prices are still reasonable, the menu choice is quite extensive, and the food is well prepared and cooked. Six of us ate there for just over 200 TL (c. £72 including liquid beverages), so it won't blow your budget.

But, to be quite honest, it'd be worth it anyway just to sit there. Romantic couples should try to book the tables next to the outer walls looking out towards the sea.

“Fabulous ambience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Kybele Restaurant right next to the fantastic Bellapais Abby offers great food at very reasonable prices, and you simply can't find a better view. Specially at night when the Abby is floodlit, the ambience is out of this world.

“Lovely views and food but service lacked a little...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The place was very atmospheric for dinner with the backdrop of stunning views over the villages down to the sea level and the view of the Abbey lit up made it a great setting.

The food was tasty and the portions were very large compared to some other places. The Kofte was super tasty.

The only slight downside is that the waiter did not have much of a personality and was a bit of a let down compared to some of the other restaurants we had visited. But it didn't ruin our experience overall.
