This restaurant serves a wide variety of cuisine to a standard that is very high. The staff are absolutly first class and nothing is too much trouble for them. They have certainly got it all going for themselves. Quite a few people just pop in for a couple of drinks and they are treated just the same as the diners.... More

We don't know how they did it but the food was even better than last year and we didn't think that was possible, we thoroughly recommend it. Great food, good company and excellent service, what more could you want, give the... More

Excellent food well presented. We live in Turkey and regularly meet up with friends during the summer season at this restaurant. Steaks are fab and nothing is too much trouble for the owner and staff.
