Cozy, welcoming restaurant in the heart of Izmir, walking distance from the main hotels and the Izmir Fair. Wide variety of Aegean and International food served with care and relaxed ambience to enjoy lunch or dinner with friends. Very good quality both of food and service. Must go place in downtown Izmir

we were invited to this place by our friends, which we have so much in anticipation of their service and food quality that the next day we went there again. The ambiance is excellent, particularly if space will be available at the initial area rather than the secondary section. It surely is value for money; though not cheap, it is... More

We had lunch with friends, in the beginning service staff was kind and quick. But we waited so long for our meals, kitchen must be improved and speed up.

Very very bad service, below standart food. Go if you enjoy getting tortured by arrogance accompanied by mediocre food.

We had dinner in this restaurant many times before. The location is great, expecially when there is live music. I found our meals very tasty, nice and well presented but I'm sorry to say that service didn't match the quality of food. Our starters were served before the wine arrived to our table, and in 3 minutes the waiter brought... More

Good choice on the menu - perhaps slightly too much? The food was served in good portions and was excellent quality. The iced tea tasted homemade and was delicious. Nice venue, good grounds and location. Would return.

It is located in the garden of French Cultural Centre in Izmir. Location is excellent. Garden is very nice. But a lot of tables have been placed relatively small area. This dense disposal diminish the atmosphere especially winter time in such a nice cafe.

Always like to come here, just inside the Alsancak seaside, a lot more quiet and nice place to sit. French inspired cuisine, but an overwhelming choice of dishes, perhaps a littlle bit too exagerated. One could ask himself what pizza is doing on the menu. Nothing exceptionnal, but quite honest kitchen, perhaps a bit expensive for Turkish people, not as... More
