This smart looking restaurant on a side street in Alacati has high sounding aspirations written on its board. In fact it was unnecessarily noisy inside and the food was unseasoned despite a great deal of fuss in the visible kitchen.

I went to this restaurant with my wife for a dinner with high expectations. It's relatively on a quiet street in Alacati region,but dows not offer a bit of a relaxing atmosphere. The food is experimental but do not offer a satisfactory experience at all. It is a popular restaurant but offers nothing special.

The place is a want to be place. No character on the food or ambiance. No creativity. The price was ok and service ok.I am not sure what happened to a stray cat that kept annoying the tables. Suddenly the waiter took the cat inside the restaurant and we.never saw the cat again. I asked if the cat is ok... More

At 2012, we had a great experience, last week we went there with improved experience expectation but definetly not the one we had. It felt like they had abandoned the place. The food tasted as if not much care was given. I hope they will recover soon since i still remember the good taste of the first visit.

Food Raw, greasy, unloved, and not evolved, parading as experimental cuisine. I would question the credentials of the chef with this meal. 4 of us food enthusiasts, who have traveled internationally extensively, had dinner there. The wheat salad was just that- chewy grains on a bed of greens. The mezze, and I was excited to see what they would do... More

Food was mediocre at best. It is supposedly experimental or fushion but it just lacks a full dinner experience. Plates have no sides or extras, taste is flat (nothing special). We had a wheat salad which was just that, undercooked wheat, with some arucula on the side. The mains were pricey compared to what you got (mind you - you... More

We tried this place as it has a funky ambiance - including an open kitchen where you can see the chefs. The menu also looked good for a vege and a pescatarian. It started off well but we were pleased to leave by the end. It was odd that there were 5 chef in the kitchen and only one floor... More

Was finishing up a solo 2-week Turkey trip in Alacati. Landed in Barbun because the ambiance of the restaurant was welcoming for a single traveller. Despite the language barrier (neither the waiter nor the night manager spoke a word of English), the English menu helped and I had several meze which were the best I had eaten in 2 weeks.... More
