Great value for money. Excellent service, good wine list, traditional recipes in a modern environment. Starters and deserts are included in menu; just choose a nice main dish! Excellent choice: lamb and pilaf!!!! Don't forget to try real Ayran.

This was one of my favorite restaurants in Izmir. The food was delightful and the ambiance (outdoor seating) of the restaurant was wonderful. Many traditional Turkish BBQ meats were served. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We visited this restaurant a few days ago after reading all these recommendations in Tripadvisor. The place was very crowded but we found a table for two although we hadn't made a reservation. Anyone that will visit this restaurant has to be aware that there are not prices in the menu (!) and that they serve a green salad, some... More

A must if you are in Izmir, great dining experience with the best assortments of Turkish dishes, especially meat, and the final delicious treat of mirra (cardamom coffee)!

One of a chain of meat-restaurants originating in Ankara, Izmir Recep Usta is excellent value for money. The menu offers a huge range of meat dishes, beautifully cooked and presented with a limited but delicious selection of traditional deserts and Turkish coffee to follow. Wine is served, not always the case in similar restaurants in more conservative cities. An excellent... More

I was invited here for a business dinner. The Turkish colleagues were very welcoming! Dishes were various and delicious. Do not forget to taste the Ayran: a wonderful yogurt for dinner in its typical "bowl and spoon"! ;) The place was interesting with many many lanterns in the garden... Even if I was sorry seeing several birds in cage... Surely,... More

The atmosphere is great. You can either dine inside the old house or in the garden section. Very tasteful decoration. Food is delicious but keep in mind that this restaurant offers Diyarbakir (city in Turkey) local cuisine. So you will be eating a special menu, prepared with special ingredients and meat coming from that particular region. It is delicious. Some... More

This was a large establishment - however, the staff worked so hard to ensure everyone was catered for. The good was delicious and the atmosphere authentic.
