They bring a bunch of appetisers to you as part of the experience and we ordered their specialty and also kebap but we just didn't think anything was that delicious. There are much better meat restaurants in Istanbul, skip this one.

Certainly one of the top restaurants in İzmi̇r. Very nice ambiance with exceptionally professional and polite staff and very very good food and drink. Highly recommended for business, pleasure or romance.

This restaurant wasn't quite like any other I had visited. They start by bringing out a variety of appetizers, you choose your main dish, and they end by bringing dessert. The main dishes are pretty much limited to sheep or sheep. I was told they...More
