We being a group of 5 can only agree with the all the comments below about how Mehmet has turned this restaurant around.. We have always loved the location but the previous owner did not know how to run a restaurant, couple of beer in the fridge when a booking of 8 men where due to arrive, now we have Mehmets professionalism, with the help of is family he has turned this place around and we had the most amazing lunch today the fixed menu is such good value and so delicious. Well done Mehmet and good luck for the future. We will be back see you soon.

Every time we visit Kyrenia we love to stop off at Cafe Deniz for a drink, as we love sitting beside the sea, listening to the waves crashing and feeling the cool sea breeze. But today we were tempted by the menu placed in front of us and I am so glad that we were. My choice of cheese omelette and his of cheeseburger were both accompanied by the most gorgeous salad (and I don't normally eat salad).
Would definitely recommend this cafe - if you can find it.. and whilst I'd like to give you directions I'd also like to keep this lovely cafe as our little secret.

Our family of 4 tonight had a fantastic meal at Destiny Deniz. It was quite simply exquisite and in a stunning setting as well! Well done and thanks to Mehmet and his team for a memorable evening.

Destiny Deniz Cafe was formerly Cafe Deniz. It opened a month and a half ago under new ownership and management. It is in Karakum on the main road between Girne and Catalkoy and is hidden away down a side street on the seaward side of the main road.

The venue is really stunning and most of the tables are along the water front. It is almost like dining on a boat! The view is superb in the daylight and at night the rocks below are lit and the tables are candlelit giving an extremely romantic ambience.

We had booked a table for dinner and on arrival we were greeted warmly and shown to our table. The table was dressed well with a white table cloth, napkins and sparkling glassware and cutlery. The waiting staff were welcoming and efficient.

We were asked what we would like to drink while we were looking at the menu. The drinks, a local gin and local vodka tonic and a raki were well served.

We chose to eat the set meal of a full meze which consisted of 12 cold and 4 hot meze, for a main course two of us had Kofta and the other of us had Voppa, which are fried large Sardine like fish. It came with a good salad and chips. Throughout the meal we continued to drink spirits rather than wine. We finished off the meal with a Turkish dessert which was a sweet cream mixed with pieces of fruit and nuts which was included in the set meze. It was an excellent meze and the main course was well cooked. We did find the dessert rather on the sweet side but enjoyed it nevertheless. The cost of set meze is 90TL and if you wish to have Lamb Chops or Garlic Prawns for your main course there is a little extra surcharge to pay.

It was a lovely relaxed atmospheric evening with good food, service in an amazing setting. We shall definitely be returning and wish the new owner and his staff success in their new venture. We wish them well.
