Writing my name on the bread was cute! It was a really pleasant lunch in a pleasant surrounding. Enjoyed it very much.

Nice restaurant, nice setting, easy to access, parking valet service. The trained and seasoned staff treat you almost like they're your favourite butler... Above all, excellent food. Good for business lunches (a bit heavy though!) as well as family outings and for brunch...

We were greeted at the door,escorted to our table and the feeling of being treated special continued thru out the evening. The waiter realized we did not speak Turkish and came over with another waiter who spoke English without us feeling uncomfortable. He recommended some Mezes and mixed Kebabs which were all delicious. Families were there and everyone fit in.... More

I have taken my guests to this restaurant. I knew that this place was one of the best ones in 1990s. I have not visited the place for over 15 years. we ordered mixed kebabs and none of them had expected kebab taste on them. especially adana had a very bad smell and shish kebab was very hard to chew....

Four things stand out: service is fantastic, the cool display of swords, the deserts, family restaurant with fish tanks and indoor playground for small children. Or get a table away from the playground area and it's better for adults. Alcohol is not served. Food was very good and service stands out as the best seen in Turkey to date. We... More

Haci Arif Bey specializes in iskender kebap and it shows -- great quality of meat served with a delicious sauce and melted butter. The service is top rate with a great meal served. I go there 2-3 times for special occasions

Very nice Turkish dish. Fine flavoured and not to compare with those places in Western europe. The hospitality is excellent!

We were lucky enough to have this restaurant around the corner from our hotel. Even if you are not staying in the area it is worth a visit! (We noticed they will park your car for you so don't worry about the hassle of finding a car park.) We walked in at 7pm on a Tuesday without a reservation and... More

The restaurant itself is very simple, more like what a European person would call a cafe, but the kebabs are trully great, starters were also delicious, a special thanks to our waiter who sort of passed by the table every 5 minutes to make sure everything was ok, but not in an annoying manner, it seems like he was just...
