Set in harbour and usually good to drink and eat but on this day there was no power. Needed a candle for toilets.

We ate here for lunch. My wife had a mixed kebab which wasn't massively big. I had sea bass, which was a large fish and a better portion size. A fresh salad, portion of French fries, some nice rice and bread made up the rest. We are by the harbour. Service was cheerful. With a coke each the bill came to 75tl. We didn't try starters or desert as only a lunch. Our food was nice. I wouldn't put anyone off here, and rated it 4/5 as it lacked a wow factor, that hard to distinguish ingredient that makes somewhere really special. Perhaps if we tried in the evening it would be a different experiment. This restaurant was recommended in the Rough Guide hence our visit. Review summary: Good but not "special" on this occasion.

We ate here one evening and returned again as food was very good and very reasonable. The service was excellent and the waiters were very happy and sociable. The location is beautiful and you can see the kitchen. They offer a complimentary drink at the end of the meal. On our second evening two big groups were also in but this did not detract from the service or the food. A great little find.

Nice for drinks, especially late afternoon when other outside areas are losing the sun. The fruit platter is also good, however pay in Turkish Lira as when we paid in Sterling the exchange rate given by our waiter at the restaurant was only about 75% of what we would get in the Kyrenia Main Street!

The cafe viewpoint and position are perfect - on the edge of the harbour. We chose snacks (a toastie and a club sandwich) and this was the mistake, as the food was very indifferent, with little taste - what a pity we hadn't chosen salads or fish as they looked good.This was the only low point in our stay in Kyrenia
