Cozy hidden gem

We had really good service! We ate dinner there during our stay at the Marriott across the street. There was someone at the street and door dressed in Turkish attire that really added to the ambiance; the kids loved the place. Beware of the pizza though...it's a little too spicy for kids.

It must be they are in in the high rent district we paid way too much for basic Turkish food. The waiters seemed to be tired and lacked enthusiasm, once the food arrived we realized it was because the food lacked enthusiasm. Well presented but lacked flavor. I have had better from nyc food trucks for less than half the... More

The food is quite good and authentic. The prices are not over the top, as one would expect being in the middle of the tourist trap part of town. The service staff is very attentive. They have remodeled the place, and it looks more Mediterranean than before, though I believe it looked more attractive before. The small terrace is the... More

The restaurant was recommended by our realtor. We were very happy with her other recommendations and so decided to give this a try too. The restaurant is hard to find. But go to the stated address and look for Starbucks and enter the lane next to it which will lead you to the restaurant. It is small and busy but... More

Our party of six arrived without reservations but did not have a long wait on a midweek evening. Wonderful authentic Mediterranean food. Great service! Especially enjoyed the dolmas and the lamb dishes.

Except the natives, all waiters were so grumpy as if they're forced to work there... food prices in San Juan is higher than continental US, and turkish proportion makes it worse - no surprise there, but food didn't taste any good. Any kabab from Moby Dick will beat any other one from Ali Baba, I wouldn't visit again or recommend... More
