Food if I am being kind could be described as average. They advertise the fact they you receive 12 mere plates. As I was alone I was told by very Neanderthal looking waiter that I would only receive six. Very aggressive attitude. Small beer served for the price of a large one at other places. They seem to think they... More

A restaurant with a lovely ambience, once in there it is very difficult to extricate yourself. On a cold February Sunday afternoon we found ourselves upstairs and had the most delightful fish meal.. we enquired if they would be able to accept children as that evening we had the family joining us - Mum, Dad and 2 girls (8 &...

Leisure day in Kyrenia. Many restaurants around harbour. Stopped at Canli Balik. Good service, nice people, great fish. Recommended fish meze. Try it. Otherwise mussels to start and large prawns in oil and herbs. Delightful. Great prices. Thank you.

Not the best food (nor its worst!) in Kyrenia, but even inside on a cold winter night, Canli Balik offers good atmosphere and good value with its 14 typical Cypriot mezes plus main course set meal. Too much to eat for two of us, without the extra dish that the waiter convinced us we needed. Although the meal was good,... More

You can't go wrong with the fish dishes. We had garlic prawns with bread and a salad to start. The sauce was delicious. For mains we had sea bream and sea bass with home made chips, salad and bread. We could not fault the food or the service.

Good position , shame about the food, ordered the set meal, starters ok main course a flop, it looked as though didn't care what or how they presented it, because you chose the set menu, small fish, 6 chips and 3 strands of lettuce. We paid and left asap. Would not return

Beautifully placed restaurant overlooking Kyrenia Harbour. We had the set menu of 12 dish meze for starters and fish for mains. Delicious all round and at 40 TL (around £9) each it was excellent value for money. Only issue was that the main was brought out before we had finished the meze. We intended to finish it after, but couldn't... More

Ordered mercimek soup and and it wasn't fresh but rather a packet mix. Advised owner he said it's the way the "make it". Load of you know what! The orange juice was a packet juice squeezed into a cup with a piece of orange ( give you the illusion its fresh when it's not). When I consulted the waiter she... More

We so thoroughly enjoyed our harbour-side table one night for dinner that we returned a few days later. The first time, we had delicious garlic prawns served with a lovely fresh salad and proper hand-cut chips. The second time, we opted for the set menu of meze (excellent - though we couldn't manage the fiery acili ezme) followed by mixed... More

Had a couple of good meals here. Service was excellent and food very tasty. Didn't eat at the tables nearest the waterfront but upstairs over the road, good people watching place from up there! Recommend.
