The set menu provided an excellent meal for a family with fussy children allowing them to try a variety of local cheese, humus and seafood but also with the security blanket of grilled chicken as the main. The venue also provided a cool tranquil setting away from the hustle and bustle of harbour side dining options.

We ate out in the garden, which is very attractive with big shady umbrellas and very pretty flowers. We just wanted a snack so ordered pita breads. They came with a big salad. We had one beer and one soft drink. The bill was 52lira. More expensive than some places, but worth it for the ambience and delicious food.

It is really worth a short , admittedly uphill walk from Girne (Kyrenis) harbour to sample some of the restaurants there. Jakaranda is one such, and possibly the best. We were regally looked after, and had a truly enjoyable time. Both our meals were excellent, the wine was far too good with superb service - the young couple out front... More

First place we visited on our trip had a very nice selection of meze followed by fish. It was a fairly standard northern cyprus meal but did seem of slightly better standard than some of the harbour side restaurants.

We stopped here for a quick coffee while visiting Kyrenia - so glad we did. The 'courtyard' setting is absolutely beautiful. We didn't eat, but the food looked delicious. Staff were so very pleasant and helpful and a really good cup of coffee. Just delightful.

I was on a business trip. I dont normally prefer to dine in the restaurants of the hotel I stayed in, but the place (at the backyard of the hotel) seemed so surreal with the lights, stone walls and the stairs. The food was fresh and delicious. The staff was so friendly. Thanks for the night guys!

We have visited this restaurant over the years (Set Pizza, Set Restaurant, Jacaranda) and always enjoyed the courtyard ambience (with a stone 'Romeo & Juliet balcony' for photo ops! We were disappointed to see the review saying it was closed in 2014 but delighted that we have just booked for tomorrow night...

This has been our favourite 'in town' Kyrenia restaurant for many years and I have reviewed it previously, with a solid five 'stars'. Consequently, we were very disappointed to find that it has not opened to the general public in 2014 and is being used only in conjunction with the adjoining Set Hotel, which is in the same ownership. Hopefully,... More

A delightful place, on one of the small streets behind the harbour. You go through a doorway into a beautiful inner courtyard with trees set on several levels. On the night we were there the owner was helping out with the service but took the time to speak to diners. lovely chap. Service was good, delivered with a smile, food... More

While business down at the harbour restaurants was very quiet, the Jacaranda which is only a street away was full. Booking is definitely advised. A beautiful setting. Staff were friendly, efficient and attentive. The food was very good although the menu included a lot of fish and not much in the way of local dishes. Will certainly eat there again... More
