We went to three different restaurants on the old harbourside and this was definitely the best, probably in all kyrenia. The usual lovely staff, mitre'd in particular, v professional. Great mussels starter, good calamari, lamb kleftico (lamb shank) particularly to be recommended.

We stopped here for some drinks before dinner at another restaurant. It was quite early so wasn't busy. The service was good and the drinks were reasonable priced.
