Attended the Wednesday night evening of dining and entertainment. Greeted by Engin the owner as a friend rather than as a customer. Food superb as usual. Staff are very well trained and attentive - hardly any waiting for service. Entertainment of a very high standard . The evening wasn't even spoiled by a power cut (which seems to be the... More

Celebrated our wedding anniversary here 2 years ago, and have returned every year since. Lovely relaxing atmosphere, and the hosts go out of their way to make you welcome. Lovely food, and they really spoilt us again this year. Maybe we should have a standing booking for 21st July, we will be back!

Just returned from Hisaranou and had the pleasure of visiting the Istanbul Restaurant in Kayakoy three times during our holiday and on each occasion had a lovely time.

Fabulous BBQ and Live entertainment , well worth a visit if in kayakoy, especially on the Wednesday Evening, better to pre-book. Good value, very friendly people and staff, great atmosphere, drinks very resonable, service quick, check wine prices first before ordering as lots of choices and ranges.

The food and service were great. The promised bread made with a special secret recipe is worth the visit on its own The dishes were all great and served with flowers from the garden even the wine cooler had leaves from one of the local bushes in it. Service is unobtrusive and attentive. Why not a higher rating. It's a... More
