“DISGUSTING!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

The WORST place in my life! Very unpleasant service! Disgusting place, if you respect yourself never ever go to that terrible place! Very dirty kitchen horrible food and COCKROACHES were everywhere, we couldn't eat normally for three days after visiting that place(can't even call it 'restaurant' actually) strongly recommend - do not go there.

“Very unkind service. Expensive and bad food. There are thousands of better and more friendly restaurants very near by.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Paid 50 Euro for greacy spaghetti and average quality pasta along with two beers an a coca cola. This restaurant really knows how to rip of tourists. Theres a blond girl from Island running around all the time to catch people walking by to eat their bad food. This i only experienced in Istanbul. She is very insisting and turns people of who walkby . A good restaurant does not need that. Definetly a turn off. Mind that restaurant.

“Very pleasant atmosphere & good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

My wife & I had dinner in the outside seating area on Sunday Sept 30th, and again the next evening on Monday Oct 1st (yesterday), we arrived at 6pm both evenings. The food we ordered was truly exquisite. Especialy good were the Resotto de Setas, Paella Marinera & the Paella Vegetal, Creps de Nata con, Coco Helado. Ask for Imran or Idabel, they gave us great service & food advice.

“Stay away!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We were lured after doing a big fat bike tour which was fantastic. In a nutshell the food was terrible. The chicken paella came, dried up with overdone and tough mushrooms and a few chicken wings thrown in with barely any meat on them. The rice honestly tasted like the burnt pan it was served in. What is worse is the waitor told me that he gave the chef our "compliment" aka COMPLAINT and we were advised that is what paella is supposed to taste like that. My husnband had canelloni and honeatly it could have been alpo as the meat. Honestly stay away from thisnplace.
