Take your shoes off and dine at one of the traditional floor tables with cushions. The menu changes daily with a choice of lamb, beef or chicken main. The lamb was so tender and... More

环境很好 是在洞穴里 位置略偏 Meze是几种冷菜拼盘 当天的例汤非常好喝 没有图实在是快速就被消灭了 点的主菜是牛肉 比较靠近中国人的口味 据说羊肉非常软 但是我没有点 主菜是送沙拉的 我们两个人点了一份主菜 一份汤 和冷菜拼盘 没吃完 70.里拉 价格合理 因为是淡季没有什么人 饭后还和店主聊了很久 送了红茶 lovely dinner and cozy place! Would love to come back!

This little restaurant is hidden at the back. The menu is limited but the food and presentation is good. When in the area top deck is a must. in the quiet times reservation is not needed but can get busy as seating is limited. the staff/cook spoke english well and were quiet clued up on the menu items.

Excellent Turkish cuisine set in a warm comfortable cave, owners very friendly and service excellent, booking in advance is advised as they can only manage so many covers.

Amazing food and atmosphere. Make a reservation ahead of time and be sure to ask for the traditional seating (on the floor, shoes off style!) Friendly service and the best food!

We went back the second night because everything was so delicious! Very friendly and quick service from this family run restaurant. Experience a meal in a cave. You can even sit on the floor with a roaring fire during winter. The owner's wife is South African so we get a special welcome. ☺
