Bastani is located within the old bazaar. Stepping in is like stepping into another world, with a small courtyard with central fountain. The restaurant has elaborate domed arches, decorated in a very traditional way with elaborate mirror-work and Persian paintings on the walls.

The food was simply outstanding - good portions, excellent choice, tasted great. The ice-creams were excellent as well. This is one restaurant worth taking pictures in, and coming back to again and again in Esfahan.

The food here was good, and it's a nice setting - low tables around a courtyard and bigger tables inside for groups. It's very much a tourist restaurant, and from what I saw and experienced caters to large groups. As a solo traveller however I was not made to feel welcome - first of all a waiter said there was no table for me despite there being a few empty tables. When the manager stepped in he found me a table, but the service that followed was very unfriendly, and towards the end of my meal I was asked to "finish soon". So much for a relaxing lunch...

There are better restaurants in Esfahan. Meet some locals and let them take you places - you'll have a great experience and great food.

Totally worth mentioning in Esfahan :) The vege Fesenjan was great - although like many Iranian dishes much sweeter than I am used to having in a savoury dish.

" Bastani " is Esfahan Traditional Ice Cream , so delicious and you can find it in certain places but one with a very good quality is at the begining of " Naghshe Jahan Square " .

When you enter the Naghshe Jahan Square from the Sepah Street , exactly at the entrance of the square , on your right hand there is an ice cream shop who sells Bastani !!

Enjoy it :)
