Once the Sur La Mer, it has changed ownership about 12 months ago and is now called the Karaf. Apart from fast food which is ok, Mustapha does tandoori dishes in a large clay oven outside. The lamb and fish choices are excellent.

Just wrote a review for a hotel and saw this old one. Unfortunately, the restaurant is no longer there. In it's place is a cafe serving basic food and drink. Shame!

Had fillet sea bass and chicken with a glass of wine and a coke. 2 people total bill 50TL. Sea bass was fried too greasy. Overall food is average, service is good. Go if you want to have a bite avoid if you are looking for romantic evening or good food....
