Went here for an evening meal with our friends. What a delightful place it is. We sat in the garden under the orange tree for a drink, the homemade lemonade was delicious. For the meal we had fried cheese, lamb followed by the best homemade strawberry sorbet I've ever tasted we also received a complimentary liquor. Rounded the night off... More

A lovely setting - garden, seating, trees, pet dog - a haven of tranquility. Cannot coment on food / drink as the lady was late back from shopping. There was a sign and we did go in and enjoy the gardens

We came upon the gardens of Irini by way of a walk uphill to see Bitter Lemons, the house Lawrence Durrell lived in during the 1950s. Dierdre was a charming hostess and we had some great conversation her friends who were at the time. Being a cat lover I was in my element with gorgeous moggies everywhere. We had a... More

This place had been recommended to me by a friend so when some other friends came to visit, I decided to give it a go. The owner was very accommodating when I phoned her and I was given a choice of three or 4 items for the starters and main course, all very appetising - no problem. I knew the... More

A lovely pair of houses on a hill above Bellapais - but unfortunately our trip to Cyprus got off to a really bad start after an argument with the British lady who owns the place. The most unfriendly and spiky person we have ever met in twenty years of traveling the eastern Med!

Recommended to us by friends, we eventually found the Gardens of Irini. Greeted by the owner, Deirdre, we were shown to a table and ordered some homemade lemonade. Her lunch menu is small and limited, but looks very nice and everything is homemade. She chatted and was an very entertaining lady. The cafe is actually her garden and had jazz/blues... More
