Not meeting up with the expectations of the previous reviews. I advise to skip this restaurant and certainly not have at such a high ranking here. There are far better places in Maribor that deserve the better place. The food is average and no more, why this restaurant gets some many excellent reviews, I think they do not deserve that....

Maybe it was just a coincidence ... first we waited 15-20 min to order drinks. Than we waited some more to order food and when the food finally (long time when you're hungry) arrived it was cold. Come on! Give me a break! The patotoes were so cold like they've been keeping it in the fridge. The service was slow,... More

Why is it classified as a Turkish restaurant? Nice alternative food in a pitoresque environment. Thanks to the lady at desk who managed to find an accomodation for our two families eventi if booking late on Friday evening.
