“Annoyingly closed in winter without notice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

There are signs for this restaurant all over North Cyprus. They are literally on nearly very street corner. As we were staying near we thought we ought to try it so we traipsed up a long hillside, only to find it closed until march. Perhaps a sign or a note on their website could save other travellers a similar wasted trip.

Very sorry that you were inconvenienced but we did advertise in local papers the fact that we`d be closed for winter until 28 March prior to closing and also it is still advertised on our web site to that fact. Hopefully see you when we are open again.

“Like an English country house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Whist staying in north Cyprus we came across numerous signs advertising the restaurant.along with my husband his brother and wife we eventually found it.We were made most welcome and were invited to look around.The lady proprietor is English.The restaurant is in the most beautiful setting with magnificent gardens.
We booked for Sunday lunch,on arrival we were taken outdoors to a lovely pagoda for prelunch drinks.However the heavens opened and we were ushered indoors to a lovely sitting room.We were shown to our table and chose from the lunch menu.The meal was a delight as was the service and attention we were shown.Everything was first class and not overpriced.
It was lovely to be looked after in what can be described as good English courtesy.
After our meal and a lovely dessert which contained fruit from their garden we went outdoors to have our coffee as the rain had stopped.
Smart dress is the order of the day and I must say very refreshing.
Saturday evenings is dinner and dance.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Up in the hills, the villa is in a beautiful setting with the tables set around the pool. We went to celebrate my husbands birthday & the setting, ambience, excellent food & service certainly made the evening special. The drinks are a little pricey but well worth the cost for the overall experience.

“Terrific food, friendly welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We recently had dinner here with our 10 year old son. This is a really lovely place, set high in the hills above Kyrenia and we had the warmest of welcomes from the husband and wife team who own and run it meticulously well. The food was of a genuinely high standard and we greatly enjoyed all of it, along with a nice bottle of local wine.
Midsummer House does have more of a feel of glam ex-pat living to it so don't expect the full authentic North Cypriot cuisine thing, that is not what it is about (traditional British Sunday lunch was available on the Sunday we were there). However if you are looking for great food in a lovely place you don't need to look any further.
