Recommended to have the steak for dinner. Big mistake, ordered filet steak, but it was not filet as we know it. Tough, peculiar texture. The rest of the meal was lovely, and had champagne given to us as it was a birthday meal! Didn't complain as it would have ruined the evening!

This restaurant is truly something special. It is difficult to imagine a more beautiful setting in which to dine - the courtyard of a romantic, ruined abbey. Lunch is good, but it is in the evening that this place really comes into its own, when it is lit by lanterns, the stars, and the moon. In winter, the service moves... More

Having walked through this lovely location so many times and only used it for a drink or two we thought we should try a spot of lunch before we departed from our holiday at Bellapais Gardens and we weren't disappointed. The location, service and food is first class - must try the metzes - you may need one to share.

The restaurant is in the grounds of the Abbey and it's the best location in Bellapais. For me, lunchtime is best, when you can eat in the gardens overlooking the abbey, with spectacular views of the coast, mountains and Kyrenia in the distance. The food is good all round and the house white wine is well chosen. The only downside... More

It is no secret that the location of Kybele is sensational, the ambience that being near to Bellapais creates is worth a trip alone and we go every time we visit Cyprus. However when it comes to the food and service there are better restaurants in Bellapais. The food at Kybele is good and not too expensive but never gets... More

We always eat here at least once when in North Cyprus. Fabulous views and good food. The traditional fixed menu is good value - hot and cold mezze, a selection of kebabs, warm pitta and lovely fresh salad and chips. With a nice bottle of chilled white wine, what's not to like!

In the grounds of romantic Bellapais abbey near Kyrenia, looking out to the coast below and the mountains above, the location could hardly be bettered. The food is fairly standard Turkish fare, which means good. The waiters and owner are kurds from south-east Turkey, so hospitality is built in. The wines are Turkish too, and good. An enjoyable venue for... More

We had only a short while to visit this place, which we greatly regretted. By the time we arrived in Bellapais we were starving and this restaurant was a life saver. The food arrived quickly, was excellent and very cheap. The amazing view is just the cherry on top. Visit if you are in the neighbourhood!
