Such a big and lovely place. I tried steak on the hot stone. But I didn't like it. Because meat was already cooked before I received and became dry immediately. Other than that service was great.

Other than than do not waste your money, time and energy here. But if you have a big group and... More

As a fan of Antakya cuisine, I love this place. Of course some of the dishes are not exactly like those you'd eat in Antakya, but overall I'm very happy to have this restaurant in Ankara. Whenever we go, the food is fresh and tasty. The staff is helpful and nice. I remember one time not being able to decide... More

I would recomend for people to go both in summer and winter. In the summer you sit under the trees next to a pool. In the winter you sit in the second floor of an old Ankara house. The food is very good and mostly it is from Antakya region. Do not go without a reservation.

First of all, I should say that I've had the opportunity to eat in Antakya many many times and thus, have a vast knowledge of the local cuisine. Now, we initially ordered a meze platter (8 types of meze) and I'm afraid none was good. Then, we had kibbeh bi's-siniyyeh (minced meat inside bulgur), which was very dry with no... More

Wonderful garden! So romantic! We loved the snacks nad "Karides Guvec" (Shrimps). But make sure there is no wedding celebration at the day...

I give this restaurant 5 STARS, for some reason it wouldn't let me rate it as a 5. In 2006 my husband and I married in Ankara, Dafne Restaurant offered us a 5 star meal on our wedding night. It was a beautiful and delicious meal. We were treated so special and we appreciate your hospitality so very much. Thank... More
