“Great restaurant, excellent service and food”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

By far one of my best experiences, drinks are always a surprise, I asked for what I'd like to have and the bartender comes up with something special to my personal taste, food is incredible, many flavors and different textures, service was excellent! Beautiful views as well.

“Experimental”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

A modern atmoshere has been created with a nice Alacati view. You are invited to see the kitchen which has nothing special. Different kinds of local dishes with experimental and artistic additions were presented. You are served the dishes one by one by so many chefs. I wonder why so many chefs are needed, probably to influence people think how great the food is. I must say that amoung the served 15 small dishes, none is worth to mention. Fix tasting menu price is 155 YTL excluding wine, but I must say it is does not worth and you do not feel satisfied with what you get.

“Classy”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Fix tasting menu priced 155 TL including 7-8 types of cold dishes and 2-3 types of hot dishes with a 3-4 types of dessert. Portions are small as it is called "tasting menu" but you will be full when you are leaving because you taste 10-15 types of delicious food. Service is very professional definitely one of the best I've seen in Turkey. It has a nice moon view. I left happy even I think it is expensive. Reservations are required.

“Lots of things to improve...”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

First of all, since there was no detailed address description or a map on their web page it was hard to find the restaurant. The restaurant itself is highly artistic and has a wonderful view especially at night with full moon. On the other hand,
Service was amateur.
Wine list was limited.
Tasting menu consisting of more then 10 items (some to be shared) was lacking planning and composition. There was no link between dishes and transition was not smooth.
In each plate there was a very strong flavor suppressing other ingredients due to the excessive use of onion, radish, aniseed, dried olive, etc.
Fish was over cooked.
Lamb was cold.
I had fine dining experiences before (Michelin star restaurants are also included) with similar cost levels but I unfortunately can say that it was expensive on for this menu.
I believe that this restaurant has high potential with its current assets such as place, view and artistic architecture but needs to improve food quality and wine list in order to get a Michelin star which they aim for.

“The art of meal”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

After a warm welcome, a 2.5 hour lasting theatre like team performance of the chefs....
So exciting to watch their process of creating soul touching ,highly artistic and tasteful dishes being made with unconditional love using amazing local ingredients ...in a peaceful atmosphere listening to soft musics....
An experiment that will make you feel more comfortable with inner self as a part of nature and more thanful for the presence of our senses...
