Not best food ( Adana )what i have ate on Side. One adana and small fanta and medium cola paid 50 liras. And price of adana was (7 euros )= 22 liras.so it tooks more from 2non alcoholic drinks than from meal. I didnt left argue about price, i ran away and FAST. Cant recommend ( not for tourists).

Not good at all. Beware of the server. Only interested in women. Overcoked and not worth the price. Avoid if possible. No light in wc.

a little off the main street but being upstairs still had a good view to people watch. the service was good with knowledgeable waiters with very good english. the food was a bit more contemporary than traditional but was very good, served on a square platter. the dancing waiter was quite entertaining.

I come to Turkey for almost 6 years and I've never experienced something like this. Before we ordered, the waiter wasn't happy with what we wanted to order. He kept saying we should... More

Thank you Ali G and team for putting on a fantastic evening for us. The table was laid specially, a lovely touch! The food was superb, our best meal of our trip so far. We loved the ali baba kebab. The dancing waiter was also a hit. A night to remember!

Free local starter, food very good, best steak we had on holiday, service good and friendly, wine not cheap as lowest price was 50 Turkish Lira which was about £14.50, great place to people watch especially upstairs, one of our favourites.

We thought we would try this restaurant ( under new management )this year, as we always used to go when Jo & Osman had it. We had a very nice meal indeed & would recommend it.
