A total of nine restaurants and bars in Girne picked up the awards this year, based on consistently good customer reviews. They were The House, Whiskey Joe’s Bar, Efendi, The Kyrenia Tavern, Eziç Premier, Hürdeniz, Lagoon, Stone Arch and The Cacao. Five establishments in Karaoğlanoğlu received the accolade — Jashan’s, The Ambiance, Carpenters, The Veranda and Kamares, as did Silver Rocks and Punjab in Lapta.

Certificates were also awarded to Bellapais’s Bella Moon, The Corner House in Ozanköy, Archway Restaurant in Zeytinlik, Buffavento restaurant in the Five Finger Mountains, Yorgo Kasap in Korucam, Çatalköy’s Shayna Beach Club and Grida Balik, Tervetuola in Alsancak and Karaman’s Levant.

Kamares owner Belin Olcaytan said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received this award, which is a first for us.

“We get excellent feedback with regard to our authentic curry dishes, which are made by an Indian chef, our hygiene, presentable Asian-style decor, and service.”

The Corner House manager Vesela Hristova said: “It is so good to see appreciation given by our customers, which inspires us to provide high-quality food and service. The award shows that we do our job correctly.”

TripAdvisor’s Marc Charron said: “By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps drive an improvement to hospitality standards around the world, it also gives businesses both large and small the ability to shine and stand out from the competition.”
