What an amazing sensory overload. Fifteen course degustation menu accompanied with sophisticated cocktails and excellent service. Tucked away from the tourists, what a find!

We were at Aheste for dinner, at the recommendation of the hotel concierge, who described the cuisine as "fusion". With hanging light bulbs and exposed brick walls, the hipster quotient of the restaurant was over the roof. Thankfully, they delivered. We had hot mezzes of meatballs and aubergines, which were both wonderful. The meatballs were tender while the aubergines had a sour kick, thanks to the tomato paste/salsa topping. My friends had the chicken confit (very unusual, since it is usually duck) with very nice crispy skin while I had fried sardines. Special mention goes to the bread and side salad for my sardines. The bread was soft and fluffy on the inside and had a nice crust, not too hard but still had an element of bite and almost crispiness. The side salad of mesclun, carrot, dill, mint and dressing of olive oil and probably lemon was light, refreshing and addictive. We could not have asked for more.

This was the best meal of my entire life. We had the taster menu (115tl each - bargain!) and we were not disappointed. GO AND TRY FOR YOURSELF! We were so impressed that we left a 50tl tip because we thought that it was worth so much more.
