We ate there twice during our tour, as the cafe is owned by the hotel and tour company. Food for parties was unimaginative and small portions. I would only hope that a cash customer from the menu would fare better. Free wifi.

It was very quiet in the harbour and the waiter did a good job of pulling us in. The Kleftico was disappointing and was no more than a shoulder of lamb with a baked potato. The shish kebab was similarly unexciting. The Yakut wine was the most expensive on the menu at 50TF but was fabulous non the less. The... More

Seven of us dined here last night and all enjoyed our meals. My wife and I have dined here in the past and love the setting on the harbour. Service efficient and prices reasonable given the location.

loved just sitting by the harbour and looking at the views. Food was a little disappointing but the cocktails went down a treat. We had a lot of places to choose from but picked this particular restaurant as it was at the end of the harbour and so was a lot quieter.

We came here twice for lunch with the tour group, twice for dinner with the group and twice for lunch on our own. The food was always good, service is fast, and the location is great for watching the world go by. The staff could be better - a little more attentive and helpful would not go amiss. We could...

Only stopped for a quick snack at lunchtime so the sandwich with chips was just what was needed. Prices on the harbour are a bit higher than other parts of Kyrenia but service was good and the setting is lovely
