This restaurant is not to be missed, the food is the best I've had in Turkey. The staff are so wonderful polite and hard working, Also the BBQ on a Saturday night is a great night. As a family we all loved our time here. Definatly worth a visit.

We came across this restaurant by chance whilst driving from Gemiler beach on way back to Dalyan. As soon as we parked in the car park, we were greeted enthusiastically and invited in.

Great food at the Istanbul restaurant, the family who run the place are very friendly. Mamas bread course is lovely with home made goats cheese and garlic butter. The mixed Mezze is also a must try dish!

Been coming for 14 years. Engin always thanks you for choosing his restaurant. He treats you as friends not customers. Jasmine is such a little star. Robbie and Joseph always friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit.

A great little place for decent food, slightly overpriced and a longer than normal wait, but worth the visit.
