Hi, we live east of Girne and would recommend any of these, The Courtyard, brilliant curry dishes as well as steaks etc., The China Garden, Stroll Inn, Al Shaheen, Indian and European dishes, The Grove, Happy Valley all of them have their own individual appeal and are on the main road into Girne from the east. Happy eating!

Hi breezyboy .

Going past accapulco there is Antique restaurant , dont be put off as it looks a little shabby , food is great , furthur on turn right up to Esentepe village there are a few good restaurants , beware of the Tumbas restaurant , a bit of a rip off if he thinks you are just a one off customer . Then going furthur on there are a few more dashed around . Hope this helps .

Hi Breezeboy,



There is a very good restaurant called Valley View, it is the next restaurant after the Acapulco on the left hand side of the road. It has car parking just off the road and has bougainvillier and oleander growing over the walls The prices include a very good meze both hot and cold dishes. They have seating inside and out and the staff are very welcoming. We have always had value for money. When I was last over in April some friends and I decided to go to the golf course restaurant and were asounded to find they no longer do evening meals. The food was excellent there although the drinks were expensive maybe this was putting people off going to eat, I think this is a real shame as the setting and service were good.

Hi, was reading the post about restaurants to the east of Girne, and was surprised to read the bad words concerning the Tumba, in the village itself. We have lived in Esentepe for nearly three years and this is the first we have heard of anyone unhappy with this place. Chevki has all his prices displayed inside and out side the bar. It is a good testament to this bar that it is nearly always full, with people returning again and again. The young man who runs the restaurant is very proud of his restaurant and of the local advice that he and his father, the muktar, who has the shop next door,can give. You will find that if you call in this place you will find a beautiful location, great food, turkish and english,and a very welcoming host.

Hi Avril I didnt realise the Golf Club dont do evening meals anymore. We ate there in October and the food was excellent but there was only 5 of us in the whole restaurant and I think that was on a Saturday night so maybe not worth opening during the evening - unless they open during the peak season during the summer only and close other times?? We have eaten in Tumba before and always been happy with the food and fantastic views from the garden.

Tumbas is great and very friendly. The owner would be devastated if he knew he had caused offence as he works hard to make his restaurant a success.



We always eat there when we visit and the experience is one that should not be missed!!

The Esentepe Restaurant is very good. It doesn't look much but the food is excellent and loads of it and vry cheap, probably the cheapest in the village.



A new restaurant in the village is called Hatay and is also very god and reasonable prices.



The Esentepe Villa Hote does very nice food.



Someone has said there is a new indian opened up on the Kayim site just past Estenepe on the main road called the Pop Inn but haven't tried it yet.



Green Valley restaurant is nice in Karaagac also.

Pipie, The only answer to that is, if you are not happy with the price ask him if the price is right. Not to just pay it and then moan about it afterwards.

Tumbas is a great all round place to meet for food, drink and quiz nights. Lovely people we have met there and the toilets have some very nice quality fittings. St James if I remember correctly. (I spot these things). Continued investment over the years from a small Turkish coffee shop to a very nice place shows commitment.

Also, The Antique Bar And Resturant a couple of miles further on, on the left after the Esentepe turn is great for drinks, informal gatherings and the food is pretty good. Some evenings impromtu music from some locals makes for a great traditional evening. Winter time they have a great fire. The management there are really friendly and very helpfull, in fact there are so many good places you just have to try them all.

Seamus O' Flynns Happy Valley is great. It is run by Riaz, we usually have Indian but I tried a couple of other dishes when I was there in April and they were excellent and prices reasonable. Have not tried many of the others often enough to be able to give a considered opinion.

Alkans is also good. Very friendly, with good food and drinks. (Careful on the Raki!)



They also do a Kleftiko special on Sunday - 10 which includes coffee and brandy.

keith, take the road up to Esentepe. Go past the Esentepe Villa Hotel, also very good food. Keep going, you will come to a right hand bend and the Esentepe Restaurant is on your left, down a little slope. Next on the left is Rosie's Restaurant, who does a great Kleftico and meze on a Wednesday night. Then on to the village to the Tumba. There is also work on another restaurant in the centre of the village, hopefully finished in a few months.

Ismail, the previous owner of the Antique, and his wife have once again taken over. They are getting great reviews, food and hospitality are shining. Worth a visit.

It wasnt really good the last time he had it.

Al And his staff have done a good bit of work on the place, at their cost and built up a pretty good trade. Like it or not it was a good place to meet new people, very informal, a good drink with nice people, and the food was OK. All in all very relaxing and if you have to moan about the price of a beer, well ask how much it is first before you buy. It was typical of the smaller bars in the north. It was Ok. But lets see how busy it gets over summer. Good time to get back in Ismail.

I wish Ismail all the luck in the world.

And if that is no good just walk up to Pop Inn. Curry anyone.

Good luck all.
