We were very happy to come across this lovely little independent restaurant in the charming quayside.

I love this type of dining and everything was tasty and well presented. Friendly service and good value. It does feel a bit cramped though when they are busy

The staff are very friendly and attentive and are able to explain every dish to you if you have any queries. The food itself is obviously freshly cooked and the meats cooked... More

We were looking for a restaurant and happened upon this little gem.The menu is varied with lots of specials from the chef which is great if you aren't a Turkish food connoisseur like us.The service was very friendly and with half price mains it was extremely good value for money.
