We just wanted to stop there to enjoy the river and drink Turkish coffee but realised that they do not want to deal with you if you are not there for a breakfast or for a big meal. Before we sit thy asked us if we are going to have a breakfast and if not they wanted us to sit to the tables which are under the sun. They made this to some other people who came after us. To me it is not the best service understanding for a restaurant so I will not try here again.

We arrived just after sunset and took our seats by the river on the veranda. There is a great atmosphere and wonderful sounds of nature. It was a bit cold so the very kind staff gave us blankets.

We enjoyed a whole table full of excellent local mazes including stuffed vine leaves, aubergine, tomato and rocket salad.

We chose a selection of fresh fish and decided to move inside where they lit a log fire to keep us warm. The fish was great, very fresh and very reasonably priced.

Great service, a superb location and excellent local food. We hope to visit again.

We visited for a dinner during the winter in a really snowy day. The place was really nice, a fireplace in the middle, wooden walls and comfortable but nice looking tables. Meal was fresh, the serving was nice. The grid to roast the bread was a really good idea. We enjoyed our meal and night.
