“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Great food and great service. Fish was fresh and the Raki was tasty. Very nice meze. The best nights are when the Polish accordion player is there and singing.

“Twice in four days ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

My son and I were only spending 4 days in Istanbul and wanted to try as many restaurants as we could but had to go back after our first dinner. The initial mezze offerings were many and varied. We choose three, humus, yogurt and cucumbers, a tomato and chili paste and almost filled up on these, all were excellent!. Next my son ordered the lamb stew and I ordered the lamb chops .... both again were excellent! We were given complimentary watermelon after the entree and a complimentary chocolate soufflé' which again was perfect.
We usually are pretty adventures when we eat out but on our second visit two days later we ordered the same meals and got the same excellent results. Arif was our waiter both times and him and his team did an excellent job. Very relaxed, enjoyable meal.
