Often going back to a restaurant is disappointing. Missing out on going to the tavern would be very disappointing. The ambience was even better with their son providing superb service. We had hot and cold meze and lamb to follow. Loads of anecdotes and the best meal in ages. Do make sure you book and choose your main course.

We were 4 diners and we had a truly memorable evening and the whole experience was unique. The Tavern is a family run restaurant and they are all so charming and very welcoming. The cuisine... More

We arrived to be told that they do not open until 6pm. We were a family group of 8 but unfortunately we were turned away. Perhaps they should update their listings if they do not serve lunch.

We had diner at the kyrenia tavern two times and both times it was perfect. In a cozy and intimate setting, Ahmed and his family will spoil you with the best of Cypriotic food. And after diner, you will have enough travel tips to fill the rest of your stay.

After turning up a bit earlier than booked for we were seated and were instantly taken back by the quirky décor. We got our drinks after a little... More

A fascinating evening. Tasty hot and cold meze, followed by delicious slow cooked lamb. No menus, lots of surprises (including the decor), incredibly friendly. Come with an open mind for unforgettable meal.

Went to this tavern/restaurant for the first time whilst on holiday. To say it is unusual in that there is not one theme to the decor, you dine under the canopy of vInes trees etc along with an old Austin Allegro car rusting away in one corner, in another there is a bed with mosquito netting hanging over with a...

The return visit to our favourite Kyrenia restaurant to celebrate a major anniversary was not just good but surpassed our expectations.
