From the minute we arrived everyone was so nice and they all speak English. We chose a table outside and it felt like eating in the garden of my home with the exception that this garden has those old gardening tools that adds some magic to the place. There cold meze was so fresh and tasty, there hot ones are not my fav but that's just me since my friend enjoyed it a lot. The traditional dessert that they served at the had was the best happy ending, it is the best dessert i had in Cyprus. We actually took our dessert and coffee and had them on a bench in their yard and it was the peak of my day and the bill at the end was just fair if not a bit less than what were expecting.

We had a great dinner with fresh Local food. Each plate was fresh and nicely prepared. We enjoyed also a great service. We will come back as soon as possible!

On a previous visit to the area, we had called at Gondara's for lunch and to try Soulva and whilst we had a wonderful lunch we couldn't try Soulva as you need to pre-order a day or so before hand because of the slow cooking involved in producing the finished dish.

So on this most recent visit we made a point of dropping by and putting in an order for our next evenings dinner...and we were not disappointed. We were greeted by the most lovely waitress and also the restaurant owner, who took us through the kitchens (spotless) to see where our Soulva was being gently cooked over charcoal.

A wonderful selection of meze followed by the Soulva was an absolute delight and highly recommended...lovely garden and views, nice atmosphere all added to the experience, we will definitely be returning on our next visit to N Cyprus later in the year.

But do remember to put in your order for Soulva before hand to avoid disappointment......

It takes a while to find awesome meze in Northern Cyprus - you'd expect it in a Turkish part of the country as they're famous for delicious cuisine - not that easy. After trying dozens of restaurants we stumbled across this place on our weekend trip - and we fell in love. As always you end up eating way too much, but everything they serve there is stunningly beautiful and well prepared. They serve beautiful local cheese called talar (and it's hard to find one of the same quality in the shops), a variety of meats that are just perfectly grilled or cooked, and local wine made in the southern part of the island. Just give it a try - it's a fantastic place to treat yourself with fine local food.
