The restaurant is in the backgarden of a house, tucked away at the end of a passage way. The garden is walled and is so cute with its rustic decor. This place is unique: we were given a wine list after being sat down but no menu. While we soaked up the atmosphere the waiter re-appeared and took our wine... More

I loved this little restaurant everything about it is wonderful. The food, the people, the atmosphere is all perfect. I found it by accident roaming the streets of alacati and was delighted by my experience. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to alacati. Its not on the main road and a little tricky to find but completely worth... More

After being unable to make reservations at this restaurant in 2013, I called ahead from the US a month in advance to make reservations for August 2014. My reservation was for 8:30. Mistake! My husband and I were the first ones there, and had the worst table at the restaurant. It was right next to the maitre d' station and... More

You get the whole package - you enter through the kitchen where you make your choice between the displayed mezzes and main courses, then go up the stairs to the dining room with a handful of tables. On the day we went the service was fast and unobtrusive. The food was really good too - the mezzes particularly. Main dishes... More

Small family operated Restaurant with different family owned recipes. The food which is prepared beforehand is displayed and the customers choose. There are lots of dishes made by using various vegetables and herbs One must try sauteed pumpkin. If one wants nontraditional way of cooking this is the place

Great traditional set up, where you visit the kitchen and choose your mezes (very large range) and main courses (smaller range). What was not so great was that there were no prices obviously displayed anywhere, so it was quite expensive, but it was of exceptional quality. Stuffed courgette flowers, baked courgette and the slow roasted lamb with garlic and rosemary... More

Lovely food. Inventive and yet very traditional cuisine including some foraging. Hugely authentic and attractive setting. But the service. It starts as polite and friendly. And the staff do their job when you see them. BUT they just leave you alone. With only two parties, a total of six diners, we were left for ages between courses to the point... More

This restaurant isn't on the main street but it's definitely worth seeking out. it is essentially someone's house as you walk in through the kitchen and sit upstairs in a beautifully decorated living room. the food was excellent - traditional home cooking with fresh ingredients. highly recommended.

We had booked as we heard that it was difficult to just walk in. This was the case as they turned away quite a few and it was almst Nd f he season. Anyway, the service could have been better, the novelty of going to the kitchen to order your food was original. I am undecided wether I liked it... More
