“Superb food and great ambience.”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

In our opinion a superb restaurant that gets everything right. From the minute you walk into the lovely old Efendi house, in the Turkish quarter, you know you are in a very special place.
Andy, Amy and their staff are welcoming and the service is efficient and friendly.
In summer the courtyard is a stunning setting and in winter the inside of the building, with its numerous seating areas, is stylish and comfortable.
The menu is imaginative and the presentation of the excellent food is beautiful.
We have been to private functions as well as meals at Efendi and it is always top rate.
A must visit restaurant if you are visiting Kyrenia, but do make sure to book.
Our favourite restaurant for special occasions.

This restaurant was recommended by other guest in our hotel and we were not disappointed.
there were 4 of us and we each had different meals, Lamb, salmon, steak and chicken, none of us were disappointed in fact Steve said it was one of the best fillet steak he had ever had.
the service was first class, the setting was great in the courtyard.

“Stunning”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We visited 'efendi' on our second week in Kyrenia after being recommended by another guest at the hotel, and so glad we went. The courtyard is amazing and the food is outstanding. It was that good we had to go back on our last night, and again it was superb. There was about five couples from our hotel also on their last night.
It's very busy, but only caters for around 45 covers so booking is necessary, but you will not be dissapointed. Just go!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to the staff at efendi for the wonderful service brilliant food and to Julia who runs the restaurant.

“It Doesn't Get Better Than This”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

My wife & I spent the perfect evening on Saturday at Efendi. The courtyard is a lovely setting for a late summer or early autumn evening & the lady, who provided the background singing added to the overall ambience of the evening. The staff & service was first class and the food was delicious. My wife had the fish cakes followed by the thai chicken curry, whilst I had the beef strips in oyster sauce & then the belly pork, all of which was fantastic. We then shared a cheese cake. We visit North Cyprus 3 times a year from South Cyprus & we always go to Efendi, as it is an exceptional restaurant.
