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.

This is such a great place and always so constant in delivering quality and service and atmosphere. They have fully embraced the Covid safety and the waiters are wearing a face mask, the menu is on a plaster board so you do not touch anything...and that is for Covid. The service as usual is impeccable and the food is great (however I wouldn’t mind some news addition as the menu can feel sometime ripetitive) and there is a nice wine list to choose from. Really a great place.More

We love this restaurant. The service is superb and very professional. The owner chef will visit each table for a chat to see that the meal is ok. This is very good PR for this place. The food is always of an excellent quality, beautifully...presented and lovely flavours to the dishes. Live singers by the pool adds to the atmosphere.More

Very romantic setting and tasty food. There are a few vegan and vegetarian options which we were happy to see. We especially enjoyed the veggie burek as a starter and the artichoke dish as a main. They also offer vegetarian moussaka which was delightful. Would...gladly return and would love to see even more veggie options on the menu :)More

We booked this restaurant well in advance to celebrate our 5th anniversary and it was probably a good move as it was busy. The views of the monastery and village were excellent providing a great ambiance. The food was very good, my wife enjoying the...kleftiko in particular. Service was good and unobtrusive. Would go again.More

This is an amazing restaurant with wonderful views. The steak was delicious and cooked perfectly, and very reasonably priced. You can take a taxi here from Kyrenia very easily, this will cost about 35-40TL. When we are next in Kyrenia we will not hesitate to...visit this lovely restaurant again.More
