I can honestly say this place has made my time here in Turkey so very special! I came to visit with some old friends and was welcomed with impeccable service, friendly staff and a luxurious villa for us to reside in. The live music really set off the evenings as did the beautiful food! Thank you so much for making... More

Not the best food we have eaten whilst in Turkey, but considering what you get for your money we thought it was good value. The baclava was absolutely delicious.... More
