The food is really nice, genuine Turkish. The fresh-baked bread with olives and hummus is something you can already go satisfied on. But don't miss out on the main courses :) Yummy Baklva as well!

The restaurant is a small place with great Turkish food. Prices were not moderate, but the area location everything is expensive.

The food is excellent. The owner makes you feel welcome. Traveled the work and the Baklava is the best, paired with some unsweetened Turkish coffee.

Place is around the corner from hotel. Went in for the lamb and enjoyed everything! Started with babushka with right out of the oven pita bread! The lamb dish was wonderful and I'll try to go back before leaving the island!

I am unsure if meat is halal. It is within walking distance from Condado Hilton. It is directly across from Marriott Stellaris in Condado. You won't be disappointed!
