Food is very, very good, well prepared, well served, well presented. The restaurant is pleasantly busy but not noisy. The staff is attentive and polite. Prices are normal, given that the small appetizers, dessert and coffee are free. They serve Wine and beer.

Well cooked and served Traditional Turkish food. Surprisingly they serve beer and wine. Very good and friendly service; speak English too. Romantic and prestigious location in front of the sea. Tip: drink Turkish coffee the traditional way and be ready for the irresistible sweets.

Dinner here was very pleasing. We ordered the lamb rib platter (not sure about the turkish name). My taste buds actually enjoyed the experience thoroughly. Service was good. The complementary starter bits and the dessert were very nice.. Reasonably priced as well. Would probably return on my next trip to Izmir.

We loved the place, the atmosphere with its simple yet astonishing decoration. The service is superb and the manager Mr. Mustafa was very helpful and a very kind host. We had the stuffed lamb on cracked wheat. The food is amazing. Thank you for such a quality place...

Well , first of all style does not meet the location since this location is famous with Fish Restaurants and Beer Pubs. The food is not good enough to deserve the high prices , too much ordinary.It is possible to have much better similar things in ordinary KEBAP restaurants at much cheaper prices. Better not to spend time &money here

This is a great place to come for authentic atmosphere and quality food. They also serve alcohol here. We chose 2 meat dishes here. Both were very tasty but note that the portions are very big here and we struggled to finish 1 of them! Meze starters arrive after you've ordered - mostly meaty and very nice. We ordered the...
