With tables in a shady courtyard, this elegant restaurant serves up excellent vegetarian food, Turkish style. Lunch starts at 2pm. There is a selection of about 8 dishes, already prepared and waiting for the finishing touches. We ordered four tapas size plates, including a tempura of stuffed courgette flowers and a fava purée and everything was great. Highly recommended.

It feels very much like you are a family guest. The food was very good. This restaurant has gained quite a reputation and in the summer I'm told... More

We spent an entire month in Cesme this summer. We wanted to have dinner with our family in Asma Yapragi but they said they are booked for the entire month. They also said that we can have the same dishes at lunch without reservation. During one of our Alacatı visits we stopped by and had lunch. Here is what I... More

this is one of the best restaurants i've been to. everything was delicious and most of the food is hard to find in any other place. it is a better alternative to usual raki-meze (ofc they are also really good) restaurants around. early reservation is a must but you can try your chance with the waiting list.

We went to this restaurant as it was recommended by a local friend and it does absolutely deserve it! We had fabulous food, a good and attentive service and the setting was lovely... The price was also moderate when compared to many other options both in Çeşme and Alaçatı while the quality was absolutely much superior!
