This was a welcome surprise discovery on the sea front. The food looked good on the plate and tasted even better. There is a good range of vegetarian options. The lamb shank keleftiko was glorious and kisir starter was also a star.

Had dinner on Wednesday with some friends who were visiting from Leeds. Food, service, wine (and glassware) all fabulous. Turkish coffee was a revelation and didn't keep me up all night. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
