The main course blew us away with wonderful lamb shank and they went out of their way to make my favourite dish 'Sarma beyti'. The wine was delicious too. We couldn't have asked... More

This restaurant is frequented by TUI and Thomas Cook visitors a lot - hence the high reviews. We thought it was good food and good value. The staff were nice and spoke English too but the views are rubbish. No sea views at all and off a side street in Old Town Side.

The service is friendly and professional and the waiters know both the menu and the wine list very well. Their menu is based around traditional Turkish dishes which the kitchen will cook to perfection. There are several kinds of dishes, including vegetarian options. Overall, the food is excellent. The presentation and serving is, however, somewhat understated, to the point where... More
