Drinking wine watching the Gorem valley lighted with candles was great. Food was very good and delicious... read more

This place is a terrace located between some rock chimneys. We went for dinner, they open until late. The place is rustic, very simple lightened with candles that creates a very romantic set. Drinking wine watching the Gorem valley lighted with candles was great. Food was very good and delicious wines. It's a very unique place, not commercial.

My wife and I discovered this restaurant after seeking advice from some of the locals and thoroughly adored everything about it. First of all the service was absolutely amazing and the family who run the place were so lovely, particularly the charming daughter and her very entertaining father. It was a beautiful setting with a bonfire, star-lit sky and fairy... More

You must get the testi kebab, the bread on top is fluffy and perfect, the rice was delicious (maybe cooked with broth?) and the bread fluffy and warm. So so good

If you are looking for something really traditional and authentic that is your spot !!! You should expect nothing fancy or glamourous but really good Turkish food and hospitality. It is higly reccomended. (And if you are Turkish, you should have a word with Mr. Ethem which makes your night much more interesting !!!)

Have ate here a few times, menu changes often, possibly daily. Good home cooked fresh meals. The restaurant is run by a lovely family, who really care about their food and their guests. Had lovely warm fire, and the daughter is a good singer/guitar player, whose happy to sing, she is also knowledgeable about contemporary folk/indie music. The vegetarian options... More
