Lovely location on the Red River in Avanos with huge deck directly on the water with a picturesque view of a mosque and the famous bridge. This is a branch of a well-known and regarded Istanbul fish restaurant. The quality was excellent (considering it isn't near the ocean). Meze were wonderful and the fish was perfect. Highly recommend if you're... More

Haftasonu kapadokya gezimiz sırasında gittik, garsonlar ilgisiz, servis çok kötü. We went last weekend while our capadoccia trip, waiters were very rude and oblivious, service was bad.

Fresh seafood in a gorgeous riverside location. If you don't speak Turkish, make sure you somehow tell them you want their selection of fresh cold mezze. We liked this restaurant so much that, although we were staying in Urgup, we made a second trip.

Nicely done up interiors. The seating area outside gives splendid views of the Kizilirmak River. Very friendly and warm service, not to mention they were quick too. The restaurant has a good selection of local Turkish wine. The bathrooms were very clean and nice. Food is simply mouthwatering and excellent - the best we have had in Turkey

This place was recommended by the hotel we were staying at for the view and the food - specifically an item made of Aubergine. We went in and were seated by the red river. The view was fine - nothing to write home about. The waiter who came to take our order seem to understand English - a rare delight... More

The restaurant is situated just next to Kızılırmak so it has a beautiful view. It's somewhat expensive (20 - 30 TL for fish) and the service is lacking. In the end, nobody in our group was impressed.

Bad service. Bookimgs should be controlled at least twice. The waiters are students so be patient with them
