“must pass by there for breakfast”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Restaurant location is amazing. It locates on a river & you can see duck, trouts swimming on the river. Atmosphere is like poetical and dreamy. Breakfast was excellent with handmade food. we really loved that place. I absolutely recommend this place.

“Be Careful”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The location is idyllic. Dining by the river side under a leafy canopy. Service like many places in Turkey was also good. The whole experience spoilt only by the size of the bill and the bad feeling it left us with (over 600TL for four people) our 2 friends both had the rainbow trout which was listed as 150TL per kilo. Sadly as I am based here it is the second time that I have left this restaurant in as many years feeling as though the cash outlay didn't equal the experience. As a foreigner you will be seen as a "cash cow". Apparently half a side of fish between 2 equals 2KG? I questioned the charge but was told that the fish is weighed whole........ Not sure where the other half went or who paid for their head and tail!! 3 beers, 2 glasses of wine, mezze, calamari, lamb cis, chicken cis, bottle of water and Aubergine dip + a surprising 20% service charge brought the bill to 646TL...... Not many locals would be able to even think of paying such a fee!! Remember that there are many other better priced and equally well positioned restaurants out there.... Also if you see tour buses in the car park outside stay away as you will almost certainly be playing second fiddle to a rather busy restaurant environment and will likely not be able to get a seat by the river. If you do eat here - 1: choose your fish and see it weighed and confirm the price; 2: check to see if there is a standard service charge: 3: confirm prices on the menu. 4: check that a charge is not levied if you do not have mezze starter (the first time my wife and I went we were charged for not having mezze and only main course). 5: if you are able go with Turkish friends who will know the score and how to deal with this sort of restaurant. Only 3 stars bordering on 2 - be cautious!!!

“Amazing location with good food”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

We love this restaurant ! It's a great place to enjoy turkey's good food. Located on a mountain river, it offers sitting under shady trees in a relaxing atmosphere. Wonderful for children!
The daily breakfast is famous and the food is very nice, you'll find a good Joyce of fresh fish and meat varieties with homemade bread.
The service is nice and friendly.
