I have advise this lovely restaurat specially in winter time. Fire place, wood decoration, dim light are made best this place. It is not so spacious. Good for couples. Steaks are amazing. So tender and delicious. I reccomend mussels in butter and garlic sauce for a starter. Steak, wine and fire. I am sure that you will not regret from... More

I have visited Carpenters for a total of 9 years now and the food is always excellent although perhaps the menu could stand a little updating as I don't think it has changed in those 9 years! However the service was excellent on the 3 visits I made during my stay this time and the wine list is extensive.

Main course garlic prawns, again terrible, frozen and Woolly... More

I have been visiting Northern Cyprus for a good few years now and must admit this is in my opinion one of the best restaurants on the island and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The negative comments I have read here are far from the truth and would appear to have been written by what we call the... More

Friends of ours recommended we visit The Carpenters and we are so pleased we did. The welcome, the service, the setting, the staff & the food (oh the food)...are all unbeatable. Kemal the owner, selects the meat for the restaurant personally & the fillet steak was the best I've had ever. If we had more time in Kyrenia, we would... More

We often go here when we are in Cyprus. It seems that the menu has stayed the same and the food as always is cooked very well. I had a lovely fish dish. The garden setting is well worth a visit.

We have dined here on our summer vacation two years in a row. Great location and ambiance. As soon as you walk in you get the feeling you are at a special place. Owner and staff greet you with the warmest welcome. Appetizers, main courses, and deserts are all tasty and the highest quality. My wife ordered the grilled sea... More
