Ambeli Village Restaurant & Bar is so much more than just a restaurant; it is a rustic experience that breathes peace and happiness in the middle of the Cypriot countryside. You get here by driving from Nicosia to Güzelyurt, towards the small coastal village and university town of Lefke. Turn towards Bagliköy, the eco-village that is famous for its ecological festivals, and you will immediately arrive at a blue-white house with a red tile roof.
The airy room is beautifully decorated with bright stone walls and authentic elements. At the entrance one has added a beautifully patterned stone floor and on the walls hang glass lanterns with lit candles. From the great hall one has an impressive view of the large bay, surrounded by green hills where shepherds graze their goats and sheep. To the right of the entrance is the bar that has a wide range of drinks.
Ambeli is the perfect outing destination where the pleasure of a good lunch or dinner lingers, and where all the senses experience wellness. The food is seasonal and locally sourced from nearby farms. Out on the large terrace you can sit down with a glass of wine or beer and enjoy the West Coast’s magnificent sunset.
It has been two months since Ambeli opened, but the fame of its well-prepared food and good service has already spread across the island. Many of the guests travel from far away, both from Famagusta and from South Cyprus. Ambeli feels new and fresh, but still personal and familiar. The owners have plans to expand Ambeli to a holiday village with rooms for overnight stays. The surrounding area of Lefke has many cultural and historical sites to discover, there is for example the ruins of Vouni Palace, the ancient settlement Soli and the strawberry village of Yesilirmak. For those looking for adrenaline rushes, one has the island’s best surfing waves! Treat yourself to a full-day excursion to the West Coast with a visit to Ambeli Village Restaurant & Bar, you can be sure to fall in love.
