Great pub grub and nice place to start the night

Spent a few nights here on my last trip to Turkey. Have to say the service was good and the food was cheap and filling. It's a nice place to start your night off in or if you want a quiet night where you can drink and chat it's also good. They could do with starting the entertainment a little... read more

Eric is a delight. The decor is ok. The prices are what you would expect and the staff are very full on. A good choice of amusingly named cocktails. The only drawback is the staff really they grate on you after an evening

Eric is actually a lovely person but everything else about it lets it down. The turkish staff are not rude but Exactly as another reviewer has said, staff are only interested if you are a single woman. And you absolutely will not fit in this bar if you don't like to gossip at the expense of others. Prices are too... More

Conned into drinking for a couple of hours waiting for quiz which was then cancelled due to lack of numbers. Yea maybe starting it before 11.15pm when the bar was busy would have helped!!! A very standard, not particularly clean bar. Not even cheaper than loads of other better bars nearby. Avoid.

Despite being in a different venue Eric is still the same as he was 20 years ago. " Say anything, do anything, you are on holiday" is his quote. Still trying to insult him better than he can insult me. He is still wearing the halloween mask I gave him 5 years ago. Best chips in Altinkum and other food... More

Very friendly, drinks ice cold, Owner was very chatty and his wife very nice. They seem to be venturing into food and she lacks confidence. Food was fine, lacked any frills but edible. Very competitive market on the beach strip where the quality is very high..they will have to do a little more to attract an eating crowd.
