Fabulous!

Really top quality restaurant! Their "kuzu tandır" is hands down the best I've ever tasted. With all the salads, starters and dessert that is included in a meal, it's really a great value for the quality/quantity. Highly recommend!

located on the ocean, it boasted a great atmosphere for my first dinner in Turkey. The food was plentiful and delicious. The service was outstanding and the waiters were very attentive. We were 8 for a business dinnere and were set up in a private charming area.

The best restaurant in Izmir! Excellent food especially if you go for the chicken kebabs and lahmacuns. Offers great views of the beach and is very popular with tourists and locals. Staff and service are both excellent.

Certainly one of the best traditional meat dishes restaurant in Smyrni. The appetizers come by themselves and they are a pleasant surprise. The lamb is magnificent. The Ariani desert is the original.

For me, this restaurant was the highlight of my brief visit to Izmir. The location is just fabulous - right on the waterfront - and the lobby area is in a lovely old building. The food was great too...!
