Service good but order sides

The food is lovely but compared to many others the main meal is small. Fantastic bread and one of the few where Efes dark is on the menu. Setting is lovely and not having sand or soil under your feet while you eat is a treat.

The service was excellent and the food was very good. It was also very good value and compared favourably with all other restaurants we visited in Cirali. Lovely surroundings on a decking amongst tropical plants. The tables were all clothed with crisp white tablecloths and each table had a side table for serving. The food was mostly Turkish and all...

Best meal we had in Cirali. Worth walking away from the beach behind the strip and just past the travel agent / hire place to get to. Food had more variation than the beach strip which all offer the same. The waiter who took our order was very helpful and the food was really good.

Met a couple of people who recommended to eat here. I had king prawns, there were only 3 of them. Expected at least 4 or 5 for the 40tl. Partner had beef steak....... Was definately not beef, it was a white meat. Eaten in better restaurants. Maybe just one of them nights.

We visited a couple of times on our trip - we loved the variety of mezze (starter plates) that they had - a little different to the other restaurants. Lovely setting and felt like a treat as it has wooden floor : )

Went here because it look nice (and it was) and because of the cocktail list. The cocktails were nice and the food was delicious. We only ordered mains but were given some basic free mezes which with the big puffy bread were a good starter. Our mains, sea bass, sea bream, grouper kebab and baked aubergine were really tasty.

The food was tasty but quite generic rather than traditional Turkish fare. It is attempting to be high end compared to the other local eateries but I wouldn't say the food is any better. Staff seemed quite busy with opening up, gardening and washing the tables and chairs rather than catering to us but we were happy with being left... More

We ate here on two consecutive evenings, I was a little suprised not to be welcomed back on the second visit but hey ho! The food here is good, there is a limited menu but that is not a bad thing. On my first visit I had Lamb chops which were gorgeous and a lamb kebab on my second visit... More
