At the top of the asansor there are two options for food: a cafe which has indoor and outdoor seating and a reasonably priced alacarte menu similar to most Turkish restaurants, and an indoor restaurant with a set three course menu for 55TL. Wanting a nice dinner, we opted for the indoor restaurant.
We had trouble at first finding someone to acknowledge us and seat us, and when we were seated, the waiter asked us if we wanted chicken, beef, or fish. the waiter was very rude and short with us when questioned about what the set menu consisted of. He simply said 'beef, chicken, or fish' and wouldn't go into detail about what they were served with, or what the entree was. We weren't offered any drinks the whole evening; only poured water.
The entree was a selection of cold meze - some spinach, eggplant, cracked wheat, yoghurt, fetta, and pieces of cucumber - all served on bread. This was followed by a slice of grilled haloumi and a fried spring roll filled with spinach and pastirma. We had to ask what all of this was, as we weren't told anything as the dishes were plonked down in front of us.
For mains we had chicken and beef, both served with warm slices of boiled carrot and zucchini, and fried shreds of potato and zucchini. Chicken was plain and quite dry. Beef was tender but lacked flavour.
Desert was some sliced fruit and a sweet biscuit. No tea or coffee.
The price was quite high for turkey but I guess you pay for the great view from the window.
Overall an average experience, rude waiter who seemed like he didn't want to be there, but great atmosphere and speedy service. Only dine if you can get a window seat though, otherwise dine outside at the cafe.
