“GREAT PLACE TO RECOVER FROM THE SIGHTSEEING”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Stopped off at the Bella Moon to revive ourselves after climbing the hill to find the house Lawrence Durrell built and wrote about in his book 'Bitter Lemons'.

This is a terrific 'courtyard' cafe/restaurant. Brilliant home-made lemonade and cakes to die for. Well worth a visit.

“Agreed - it is the best in Bellapais”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Usually when I am offered a free pick up and return to a restaurant, I feel that it's all a bit desperate. Not here. The Bella Moon doesn't need to increase the numbers, the place is full most nights. The food is super, the friendliness of the family is genuine and the ambience of eating in the courtyard makes a memorable experience. Be prepared to eat a lot - but for smaller appetites ask for a half portion of the main meal. You'll still get all the mezes and a sizable portion for the main meal, and they usually charge half price! Fantastic value.

And try the afternoon coffee and home made cake..delicious.

“Great meal, great Restaurant”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Booked the Restaurant on recommendation and we were not dissapointed. Situated on the main street in Bellapais leading up to the Abbey. Very Homely in the evening and the lighting made it. There are not many tables, but all were full which must say something. We had 7 cold 2 hot Meze starter and two Kofte Kebab meals 9My wife coul'nt finish hers so I dipped in). We had 1 large wine and two beers all for 76tl approximately £26. As we were staying in Bellapais we did'nt need to pay for Taxis (approximately 15-18tl) about £5-6 from kyrenia town HOWEVER free transportation from your hotel is provided at time of booking.

“Good Turkish food in pretty setting”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

If you want lovely Turkish food including excellent meze, lovely salads and grilled fish & meats you can't do better than this lovely little restaurant which looks like you are sitting in someone's back garden. Very reasonable, good service and in the picturesque, if touristy, village of Bellapais. Give the much more hyped Kybele a miss and try the Bella Moon, you won't be disappointed.
