I was really glad that my friends and I were getting the 'first-class' experience as promised by the manager who invited us over. The food was okay. I ordered a mixed seafood dishes which cost me 70 TL, the portion did capture my attention, but the taste, thumbs down! The main thing that I wanna say here is, the waiters... More

We asked for a housewine, cause the wine in menu was at least 70 tl. The price they add on the bill was 120 tl for the housewine! And they added 26tl tax, never charged this much before. Also 2 of the dishes were changed from 22 to 33 tl. We were very disapointed; this happened on our last evening.

Do not eat here. Terrible service, main and starter appeared at the same time, tasteless sauces, cold food. Waiters didn't seem to care lots of juniors who looked like first timers , and it cost as much as a good quality cafe. You have been warned felt like the chef wasn't on duty !

This is a very comfortable restaurant, the food and drink we ordered were very good, the service was prompt and friendly but by the end of the meal our waiter got grumpy, maybe someone put him in a bad mood?? The only negative that I can think off is that there are cats everywhere, but some people thought the kittens... More

Dirty table, stale bread, soggy chips, greasy grisly "lamb", lumpen rice. The lettuce on my plate was the only thing that was OK. Service also brusque and slow. Even the staff were eating food bought elsewhere! Don't let the man lurking at the front lure you in.

Dont go to this restaurant! 3 tables were complaining in the short amount of time we spend there. Worst service ever, the waiter was fighting with the customers and being really unpolite!! And the food was horrible and also they served wrong dishes and forgot about our main dish.

We went there because of the guy standing on the front of the restaurant. He was inviting us all the time so one time we tried it, Food was average, nothing special.
