“Charming service, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Four of us went - a young couple and two others who met on a tour during the day. The man from the young couple asked the waiter if they could put on Turkish music, and light the fire that was all set-up in the fireplace. He did so immediately, and we had a very convivial evening. My companions chose the set meal, casseroles in clay pots (testi kebap) that were broken when serving. They were very pleased with their vhoice. I had a big lunch, so chose to have what I thought would be smaller - chicken fajitas. There was so much, I had to take some home. They sell full bottles of local wine but we took a 330ml bottle of red for two of us, and it was wonderful. I think the wines could be promoted more, they really are wonderful. It was an atmospheric evening that will be a lasting memory.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

This was a great find.

we is had a lovely meal at this restaurant. All starters and main meals were tasty, and the portions were good and reasonably priced.
It was a nice break to get western food on the menu, proper cheese, sandwiches, quesadilla (yum) + the usual meat turkish dishes.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013 via mobile

The food was quite tasteless, especially the vegetables which seemed to come directly from the freezer. However the wine was good.

“Lovely meal prompt service, very cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

We had a lovely meal here one evening on the recommendation of our guide - independent with no axe to grind. The place was empty which was a bit off putting, but it was early and during Ramadan, so no great surprise. The food was lovely, fresh, nicely cooked, and good portions - I had a lamb shank, and Mezes. At the end a free fruit plate. If I remember right I escaped for TL100 for 4 people... Amazing, and probably better than the 5* hotel up the road.

Being critical it was a bit close to the road, but you get to watch the world go by...

Thanks.
