Went to this tavern/restaurant for the first time whilst on holiday. To say it is unusual in that there is not one theme to the decor, you dine under the canopy of vInes trees etc along with an old Austin Allegro car rusting away in one corner, in another there is a bed with mosquito netting hanging over with a...

The return visit to our favourite Kyrenia restaurant to celebrate a major anniversary was not just good but surpassed our expectations. This venue is popular because of the excellent food, warm welcome, great value and unique experience (check out the decor). There is one sitting for a full menu comprising an extensive delicious hot and cold meze, lamb or chicken... More

This is a family run restaurant and is excellent value for money. You do not get a menu you get a choice of lamb or chicken apparently. We I went I got asked if lamb was OK which it was. I got plenty of hot and cold starters my main was a lamb shank cooked to perfection with some veg... More

Be prepared to spend the whole evening here. Quirky. Salvador Dali with Frank Zappa but wonderful setting and fabulous food. No menu as such but you should book and tell them if you prefer chicken or lamb. That is the main course but the Mezes leading up to that are delicious and varied. A night to remember and not to...

Within walking distance of the Pia Bella Hotel and around the corner from the Colony Hotel, this restaurant is something else. Ignoring the quirky decor it is a Cyprus restaurant from the 1960's. Only two main meal options are on offer which during the height of the season you need to book and choose either the lamb or chicken. Both... More

Slowfood at its best. The atmosphere and the serving makes time standing still. Lots of food and dishes. One of the best meal I ever tasted. You have to order in good time, but I promise you; you will not regret.

We had heard good reports about this unique restaurant. 6 of us booked to go to try this restaurant. We had to preorder our main course, which was a choice of lamb kleftico or a chicken dish, although I do believe you can order from a menu too. We arrived to find we were the only people there. An elderly... More

This is certainly an unique restaurant. It is set up in a garden down a back street near the town of Kyrenia , the garden is full of interesting artifacts that would be junk to some people and antiques to others. There is only one sitting at the restaurant in the evening at 8 pm and its a set menu... More

Visited this restaurant off the cuff and glad we did. Never really been to a restaurant quite like it but the food was fab. Don't expect a menu or prices as its pretty much a case of you get what you are given. Very traditional but you need to allow a bit extra time as there are a few courses
