This place used to be cult and you can feel it in the air, it was founded in 1908 and used to be a meeting point for intellectuals, you can even see about 90 years old waiter there. However, nowadays it definetly lost all it...More

This place has cheap food, but the quality isn't great. Probably a good choice for small eaters on a budget or a quick lunch with a beer.

I would suggest only coming here for drinks. The Turkish coffee was very good. Prices were good. Pita bread was rubbery, 'chickpea salad' aka hummus was plain. Place was kinda dirty so I only had a bite of the food, finished our drinks and left.

A good place to escape the noisy downtown as you step into the medium-sized restaurant. The food went well with the local beer (Sakara and Stella) but the service was rather slow. We weren't in a hurry so it wasn't a bother. It was, overall,...More
