As a few other reviews mentioned, we used to go to this restaurant when it was under previous ownership. The setting is just so special, a lovely old house and courtyard with trees. Given that no expense has been spared on the hotel, the restaurant looks a bit faded, something needs to be done to get the ambience back. A... More

Excellent service in a very relaxed courtyard setting. Not a huge choice on menu but food execellent and well presented. Visited twice in our ten day visit and would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Have been visiting this restaurant for a number of years. When it was closed for the refurbishment as part of the Kyrenia Palace Hotel 2 years ago, we missed having it on our list of must do's on our 2 week break. We usually have 2 meals here during our stay. We booked a table on Monday for dinner Tuesday... More

Beautiful decor, setting, food and service. Part of the kyrenia palace luxuey hotel, really worth checking out. A hidden gem. Small menu choice but cooked to perfection

We saw the restaurant last night and thought the setting was gorgeous. We visited tonight for a birthday meal. I emailed the restaurant in the afternoon to ask about the menu and reserve a table. I received a swift and detailed response. Upon arrival the environment was indeed lovely. Our waitress was very helpful and efficient. We ordered the grilled... More

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.
