“Best Fish Restaurant in Kyrena”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

We've been to Northern Cyprus 8 times now and always go here - the food and service are excellent. I love sitting out front and looking over the harbour is so relaxing and the tables is yours for as long as you want. I highly recommend choosing your own fresh fish when the waiter brings it for you, its cooked to perfection. Only downside is there are no deserts my 8 year old daughter likes.

“View over the harbour”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

Distinctly better than the other restaurants in the harbour. Raised up above the quay giving an excellent view of the people and boats. Excellent fish caught personally by the restaurant owner. Carpaccio of fish was lovely. Friendly efficient service and not pushy like other restaurants around the harbour. More expensive than restaurants away from the harbour but you are paying for the view.

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Located about half way round the harbour, its elevated position ensures an unobstructed view of the activity below and of the imposing walls of the castle, at the eastern end. There are three fish restaurants adjacent to each other at this point and on the face of it, with nothing to help you decide which to patronise. We have known Kyrenia/Girne for almost 30 years (and have owned a house there for 12) and in our opinion, Set Fish is the best, when taking account of the food, the setting and the service. The owner, Kemil, enjoys nothing more than being out on his own boat and bringing in the day's catch, for the restaurant. Unlike many restaurant owners, he is a very fair boss and has the knack of keeping excellent staff, year after year. (The same comments apply to his other restaurant, Jakaranda, previously Set Ristaurant Italiano, one minute's walk away, behind the harbour.) Naturally, the emphasis is on fish but any meat lovers in your party are also well catered for here. In addition to the dozen or so tables outside and a few on the lower level at the side of the harbour, there is a small indoor dining room, which has its own character but with no windows, no view. As with other harbour-side restaurants, the prices are on the high side but in this case, no more than you should expect in a quality establishment in a spectacular position. No parking but the harbour is a short walk from the main car park in the town.
