You must try Kybele! The views are super, looking down over Girne. For sheer spectacle, go for the lamb rack from the "Specials" menu. Watch out for the flames, and the tall waiter with his Huge chopper! I will say no more except that the...More

Always try and book when Genghis is there, he I see a great host and makes our booking a pleasure. The views are to die for, and the menu caters for all tastes. Will always try and make the trip for this restaurant.

Lovely setting in the well tended grounds of Bellapais abbey,plenty of outdoor seating. Good looking restaurant but somewhat of a ‘tourist trap’.Indifferent service and underwhelming food and coffees in our experience.
