We ate here one evening while staying in Kyrenia. Although the decor of the restaurant is pleasant with a nice open log fire the place was empty with no atmosphere. We had pre booked a table but if we had realised that we'd be the only ones eating in thre we wouldn't have bothered. The food was ok but nothing... More

This restaurant is owned by the Ona Holiday Village people and, standing at one end of the harbour front, is more or less where the shuttle bus from the hotel drops you. A perfect location. We had two very good meals here as part of our holiday group, one lunchtime and one evening. A nice place. Recommended.

We stopped off at Cafe Chimera for a cocktail and some lunch on our way through the harbour. The service was attentive and efficient, the cocktails not bad and the food was exactly as expected - good quality and filling without being over ambitious or exciting. I've given 3 stars purely as there is so much competition in the harbour... More

We ate there twice during our tour, as the cafe is owned by the hotel and tour company. Food for parties was unimaginative and small portions. I would only hope that a cash customer from the menu would fare better. Free wifi.

It was very quiet in the harbour and the waiter did a good job of pulling us in. The Kleftico was disappointing and was no more than a shoulder of lamb with a baked potato. The shish kebab was similarly unexciting. The Yakut wine was the most expensive on the menu at 50TF but was fabulous non the less. The... More

Seven of us dined here last night and all enjoyed our meals. My wife and I have dined here in the past and love the setting on the harbour. Service efficient and prices reasonable given the location.

We had a lovely lunch on a day visit to the area last week. The food was very good. We had Lamb Kleftiko and Mousakka. They came with lovely bread olives and olive oil and balsamic vinegar dip also salad. We had a drink each. It was all very good. The price was very reasonable at 84 Turkish Lira about... More

loved just sitting by the harbour and looking at the views. Food was a little disappointing but the cocktails went down a treat. We had a lot of places to choose from but picked this particular restaurant as it was at the end of the harbour and so was a lot quieter.
