The restaurant is situated within the abbey grounds with breath taking views of the Barbour and the various surrounding area. The restaurant had attentive staff however the meal missed the mark of the expectation. Waiting staff were attentive to needs of the table. Setting was the winner for this night out

The views from the terrace were stunning - sunset over the mountains, cool breeze, perfect. We ate their twice, we were so impressed. Authentic Turkish/Ottoman dishes, well cooked.Delicious flat breads, good service, both evenings.

Year on year this restaurant is in decline . Take away the wonderful ambience of the abbey and there is little to recommend it. Reasonable food and service at inflated prices!!

Worth a visit to sit overlooking the beautiful Bellapais Abbey.The waiters are welcoming and efficient. Complementary Olives, flat bread and oil. Good Ottoman chicken disappointing lamb kebabs. Nearly gets excellent but kebab let it down.

If you're looking for a dinner with a great view this is the place. The food quality is average and I was a little disappointed to be honest. The fish was good but the potatoes and vegetables was not well done. The price level is fair.

This place is really very lovely, the views are incredible and the setting is wonderful. Food is good, service is quick and the staff are very lovely. It's very catered for tourists, so doesn't feel authentic Cyprus anymore, but that's no bad thing, it just doesn't have the charm it used to. That said, the flat bread served is delicious... More

We have visited the Kybele on a number of occasions over the last few years. On this visit we came for lunch first- this didn't disappoint and the views are truly beautiful. As always, we booked for an evening meal which has always been a special night out during our holiday. Again, the food was great. However, and very sadly,... More

KYBELE is the number one restaurant which is situated in the historical sight of Bellapais Monastery. The restaurant serves different kinds of dishes but the most important is you can always see the manager and the owner of the restaurant among the staff with smiling faces. Its an ideal place for families or couples besides business dinner. While eating your... More
