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.

Love this place. Atmosphere and ambience. Loved the music, great to get a break from the usual pop music. Ordered the Tomahawk steak which was more rare then medium in most parts. Think the dish deserved chunky chips rather than those wee skinny fries which looked a bit pathetic on the plate which is why I took one star off. Enjoyed the Shiraz. Staff lovely. Have been before the extension and love it even more now. Was our local sweet shop a few moons ago.

We visited on Thursday evening for my dads birthday and will most definitely be returning as soon as we are allowed! I mentioned on my booking that it was for my dad's 60th and we were greeted by complimentary breads, prosecco and finished with a birthday plate at the end of our meal! We were not expecting any of that so that made dads night! Our waitress (don't know her name) was fantastic, even with everything going on she was friendly and funny. Being a restaurant worker myself I understand the stress and upset everyone must have been feeling that night but we did not see one bit of it. The food was amazing and service was great. Can't wait until we can all return! Thanks so much

Love the vibe and staff are excellent. I feel vegetarian/vegan options could be more exciting and that the menu would benefit from regular updating. As a once a month diner at CA I have tried all the dishes I wanted to. Can’t wait to come back 😊x

We love CA, the food is delicious, the staff so helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. Even in difficult times we find going to CA a breath of fresh air, highly recommended, and we will be supporting the take away xx

Excellent atmosphere and lovely restaurant to sit in however food was extremely disappointing (4 people with 4 different starters and mains). Wouldn’t hurry back for dinner or recommend, have heard that breakfast is better though.

We had a very nice evening. The staff were first class, very accommodating and helpful. My boneless beef was a tad dry and tough but still very nice. Will definitely be back.

Hi, My girlfriend booked a table for 7pm on Saturday 10th Oct for my birthday. I was excited to eat here as I’ve heard a lot about the place. We ordered drinks at around 7.10 and food shortly after. Our food arrived just after 7.20 and our drinks after that. My pint had clearly been sitting for a while by the time it arrived. We were seated outside and had to ask to have the heater switched on. We sat until after 8pm waiting to order more drinks and food but by 8.10 we asked for the bill and after another wait had to walk to the exit to pay. Also I feel that if your specials (the one we ordered anyway) cost £22 this should be told at the time by the waiting staff. I was really looking forward to coming and very very disappointed.

We had a lovely Saturday lunch but service was a bit too slow with a long delay between starter and main course
