About Cyprus Avenue

Cyprus Avenue is a licenced neighbourhood eatery based on the edge of Ballyhackamore, East Belfast. The restaurant which was previously a derelict building was opened on the 30th of December 2016 by Richard McCracken, his first restaurant after returning from years away working in Michelin starred kitchens. Portraits of the local suppliers hang on the walls of the restaurant to ‘put a face to the names’ that are scattered on the menu. The menu is made up of locally sourced produce, using the finest suppliers. Cyprus Avenue has 60,000 bees located on its roof providing urban honey for use on its daily changing seasonal menu. In November 2018 the restaurant was extended due to growing business by knocking through into the corner site at the North Road crossroads. The renovations provided a more spacious dining room and during the works an 80 year old terrazzo floor was discovered and reconditioned to add to the ‘urban chic’ feel of the restaurant.

off to a bad start with the starters arriving before drinks. staff were attentive enough to ask how the food was when we were eating but ignored us once we had finished our mains. we eventually had to wave down a member of staff to get the bill, though this took some time as staff seemed stretched. we had planned to order desert but the 15min wait after we had finished our main meant we didn't have time. the food was average, I don't think it was worth the comparably high prices, doubt I would return.

Great food and lovely people. Having to leave after 1.5 hours was a bit of a downput, but that comes with being such a popular restaurant! Will be back, fantastic food, drink, dessert and service!

I was disappointed with my mussel starter, which were Luke warm and the cooking liquor lacked punch and flavour. Rated it 5 out of 10 I was impressed wit my ribless beef main, which was an 8 out of 10 Thanks

Great food as always. Unfortunately our table was small and we were right beside the welcome desk and it was quite loud with lots of staff coming and going. Overall a great meal but perhaps I’d get rid of that table.

My mussels dish lacked seasoning and just tasted of watery cream. My partner asked for steamed vegetables to go with his steak and fries and got what can only be described as an Asian style hot veg salad, including peanuts. This was not pleasant. We also did not think this was a compliment to steak and pepper sauce at all. It’s a lovey looking restaurant and staff are nice but don’t think we would go back.

Beautiful restaurant was exicted to try but was very disappointed food was cold, dry and main was bland. Food sounds nice on paper but failed to deliver on the plate. We left disappointed service was fine.

The staff were very helpful when my 93 year old mother disliked her main course, offering her an alternative without any fuss. The menu itself has expanded since I last visited the restaurant helpfully increasing choice.
