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.
Excellent food and atmosphere
Our new favourite restaurant.
Great service & a lovely meal for Father’s Day!
Best meal we've had in a while will def be back. Cocktails were great, atmosphere and service 🙂
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
Very enjoyable evening. The food was wonderful. The staff very attentive and the atmosphere delightful.
Disappointing. The food was not well cooked. Good atmosphere and service.
Service can be a little slow but the food is worth the wait, brunch was excellent
First time in the expanded premises - place looks fantastic. Had breakfast, service was excellent, very attentive and friendly. Quality food. Would highly recommend.
Excellent service and food. Loved the new extension to the restaurant. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Terrible service, average food, expensive wines
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.
Gorgeous decor in the restaurant, food was lovely, great service.
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.
Lovely food in a great looking establishment. Staff incredibly friendly and attentive.
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.
Super night here for my mum's birthday. Staff all lovely and welcoming, happy to present the birthday cake we brought along. Food lovely.
The food appeared to be interesting and exciting on the menu but that promise did not carry onto the plate.
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.
Very good and speedy sevice. Thanks to all.
I have to say the customer service was excellent.
Great to have a separate veggie and vegan menu. The dhal was delicious.
