We ate an early dinner here and liked the food and the view over Ankara at sunset from our corner table. The restaurant is located in the Citadel on the third floor of what appears to be a centuries-old building. It is necessary to walk up three flights of old, narrow stairs to reach the rustic dining room, which would... More

The area around the citidel, inside the gates, has become pretty touristy and gentrified. Had we known the area was so gentrified I don’t think we would have gone up there for lunch. But we were there and finding the Zenger Pasa Konagi was easy enough. The interior was as others note, similiar to a museum and interesting to browse... More

I guess if you visit Ankara for the first time, Ulus is a good stop to see old anatolian style and old city center. This place has a good view of the city in the breakfast room. The breakfast is typical turkish one and the variety is good. The atmosphere is authentic and peaceful. The staff is welcoming and one... More

I have been there on several occasions with friends, during my business trips to Ankara. The restaurant is located on the Ulus hill, in an old house, probably built centuries ago. As you enter it, you feel like entering a museum, as there are exhibited numerous old artifacts, including mannequins dressed in old costumes. The restaurant is at the upper... More

We were excited to eat here after reading the lonely planet review. Instead we recieved the coldest reception of any place we stayed or visited in Turkey. We did like the live Turkish music! Sadly we cannot recommend this place.
