We tend to go at least once per year to the Cin bal, last ear we went twice and this year we plan on going at least twice, I love the Lamb tandir, so succulent and tasty, a great service from the staff and nothing is too much trouble.

We always come here when we come to Turkey. Such great value and quality of meat. We loved doing our own barbecue which is wheeled to your table ready to use. It is also worth ordering the slow cooked lamb which is melt in the mouth. When booking, try asking for a cusk where you can relax on cushios and... More

Loved the whole experience, no menus, male expected to cook the meat, stand up toilets. It is Turkey after all!

This place in Kaya in the business. Have been using it once or twice a season for the last 10 years. Great BBQ (you choose what quantity of meats that you want) and it gets cooked at your table which are traditional chill out platforms in the shade of the vine leaves covering the outside yard. Prices have risen over... More

We were walking from Hisaronu towards the ghost town. We were unsure where we were going and it seemed to have taken some time. We were ready for food. We stumbled upon this restaurant. It felt like we were in the middle of the countryside even though we were a short distance from Hisonaru. I was pleased as there seemed... More

Self cooked BBQ in Kayakoy. 99% of diners are Turkush families. Excellent quality food. It's a dining experience. You choose your food, a BBQ is placed next to your table set amongst the trees and plants. You cook. In bad weather you BBQ inside where you'll find an amazing collection of artefacts especially old radios. Even a singer sewing machine.... More
