Not only fantastic food but great service & hospitality. We stumbled across the restaurant struggling to find our hard to find accommodation. The owner Engin lead us to our villa by following him in his car after a superb late lunch. Thanks again Engin!

On arrival late at night we were greeted with a warm welcome and ate a light meal with complimentary homemade bread and olives before we were taken to our villa. Thankfully we were not disappointed, the villa was very well equipped with all... More

We have visited this restaurant for several years now and cannot speak too highly of it. Everything is fresh and home prepared with clever use of herbs and spices. We have never had a meal here that did not leave us other than delighted. There is also a swimming pool alongside so you can make a day of it if... More
