Warning : a potent drink that locals love but tourists should be careful with, think Pernot and you'll get the idea !! Actually very nice although don't be tempted into trying the putrid red carrot juice to go with it.

Food was first class and the staff were extremely accommodating. Spread over 3 floors with excellent desserts.

It doesn't even deserve one star. This was an unfortunate place to have dinner especially with so many real restaurants nearby. Don't waste your money or time. It defines "tourist trap" by the lackadaisical waiters, uninspired food, and quartet of musicians going from table to table making it impossible to hear. Why it's still in existence is a mystery to me.

This restaurant was recommended in most of our guide books, so we figured it would be pretty good. I'd say it was mediocre. You can get the same food at virtually every restaurant in this area, and two night later we had the same dish at 20TL less a plate. Decidedly unenthusiastic about this place, and the hawking of the wares before you walk in is incredibly annoying.

The restaurant, the food, the atmosphere not important if the emloyees worthless for me. If you wan't to be threated with a pouting face employees thats your place, if you want to be asked TIP (while they charge %10 at the bill) with a pouting face at the end of the meal before waiting you thats your place... There are lotsa places to try out instead of this money orianted place; the smile on their face is just masking their money based faces. Pitty this place was one of my favourites before and pitty to see it turned to this way, no more degustasyon for me

After being promised a table on the rooftop terrace with a view of the street, we were shown to a table with no view which was already covered in small plates of food, untouched. They cleared the plates, took our order, and eventually the food arrived. My brother ordered a lamb sis, and they brought him a steak. When he sent it back, they cut it into cubes and brought it back as a sis.
My appetizer tasted like it had been fried in rancid oil, the lamb casserole was tiny even though the picture on the menu looked big, and the fruit plate was a joke compared to the photo on the menu. At this point, we dropped TL25 on the table for the drinks and the one dish we were actually able to eat, and we walked.

Avoid this place. With so many great options in the area, who needs it?
