Very friendly staff, cozy place and good food, if rather expensive compared to other local restaurants. Still affordable. The 72h lamb was simply excellent, highly recommendable.

It was winter time so a lot of places which usually would be open probably are not as the old town is a little deserted. We stumbled upon this place one evening and went back the following as the food was so yummie. It was just what we had been looking for. Nice interior and friendly staff.

We had been told about this restaurant and so we went along to book for Christmas Dinner. This is a nice quiet place, not too big and with space between tables. The Christmas menu was very traditional for us English visitors but I was glad that I chose the roast beef as I think it is the best beef I... More

The interior was classy and well designed, the service was attentive and friendly, but the food wasn't the best I've ever had. I had the curry dish which was somewhat watery and the portion was just too much, I couldn't finish it.

My girlfriend and I went to Vanilla looking for a higher end restaurant experience. We had the following: seafood risotto, coconut lemongrass pumpkin soup, we shared a vegetarian thin crust pizza, Movenpick ice cream (espresso, vanilla and maple walnut). The seafood risotto was to be a starter, the portion was a little bigger than expected which was a surprise for... More

Went there to have a quiet birthday dinner with some great food and was not dissapointed. The weather was nice enough to sit outside - there was live music and just enough other guest to liven the place up despite of low season. Starter - chicken liver, I could eat this every day for the rest of my life! We... More

Incredible food! On the more pricier side for eating out in Turkey, but this is well justified and cost us far less than eating at the equivalent type of restaurant back home in Australia. The British owner may be the only man brave enough to cook pork in Turkey, and we thank him for his courage and delicious bravery. Well... More

I have to agree with the previous review, the service here is great. The guy working here is very polite, gives excellent service and is not at all pushy like in most other restaurants. The food was between a 3.5 and a 4. we had a 3-course meal and some dishes were excellent, while others lacked a bit in flavour.... More
