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.

Ordered sac mixed meat and was very good. Service was excellent. Price however was relatively acceptable. They offered free desert and tea. Parking was difficult though. Menus have no prices.

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...
