Location and contact

Bellapais Gardens is a well known name for us who live in North Cyprus. The hotel namely has a restaurant often referred to as the very best when it comes to “fine dining” on the island. One of the brothers, Selim, is head chef, and his food attracts visitors from near and far who come to enjoy the culinary delights cooked with inspiration from the traditional cuisine. Many of the guests come to taste the award-winning fish dish Sultanahmet Fish, which among other things is mentioned on the Lonely Planet. A sommelier is on hand to guide guests to the perfect wine for the meal. Bellapais Gardens also has its own wine of the variety cabernet sauvignon that is manufactured from its own vineyard.

If you want to see Kyrenia from above without taking a helicopter ride this is the place. The Monks certainly knew what they were doing when they chose this place for their spiritual meditation.
