About Cyprus Avenue

Cyprus Avenue is a licenced, neighbourhood brasserie based in Ballyhackamore. Previously a derelict building, the family owned business was opened in December 2016 serving breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week. The restaurant has recently doubled in size, with the addition of a new outside dining area furnished using reclaimed solid teak table. During renovations, an 80 year old terrazzo floor was discovered and reconditioned to add an ‘urban chic’ feel to the premises.

The menu is dictated by seasonality, using locally sourced produce. Portraits of the suppliers hang on the walls of the restaurant to demonstrate to the guests where their food comes from. The restaurant has 60,000 bees located on its roof providing urban honey used in many dishes from its daily changing menu.

We were a party of 7 initially placed at a table with tall stools which was unsuitable for some of our party. The manager ensured that as soon as a more suitable table was available we were moved with the minimum of fuss. Service was excellent.

I have been to Cyprus Avenue multiple times and was very disappointed with our meals this time round. There were seven of us and not one of us enjoyed our food. The steak was tough and fatty. The burgers were tough and my family think they were previously frozen. We were out for a special occasion, my mother graduating from NUI Galway, so we did not want to make a scene and complain. I have a reservation for December but based on our food on Saturday I will likely be cancelling.

Food was lovely, great portion size. Staff were friendly and attentive but service was really very slow which would put me off rushing back.

Incredible food. Easily the best steak I've had this year and absolutely huge and cooked to perfection. Staff are all so friendly and couldn't be more helpful. Definitely going to book in for Christmas menu looks great.

Whilst our meal and service were of a high quality, when presented with the bill, we noticed that our £25 bottle of Pino Grigio had been charged at £38. The exact same thing occurred the last time we were at CA where a £23 bottle of wine was charged at £38. This is either a remarkable coincidence or a ‘scam’ by the bar/waiting staff, but one way or another it has left a ‘bad taste in our mouths’ and will not be returning for the foreseeable future whilst advising friends to be also be wary.

Beautiful restaurant, lovely surroundings and furnishings. Service began very well, but as the restaurant got busier it died off. Hate to wait a long time for plates to be cleared and left with a dessert menu for 20 minutes before ordering. Same again with the bill. Not one to complain but i was getting agitated at this stage. Food was nice, slightly pricey but not unreasonable. Would return to try brunch, but wouldnt rush back for an evening meal.
