“Super friendly owner, lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

We had dinner here based off a Lonely Planet recommendation, and are glad we did! The owner is unbelievably friendly and speaks impeccable English - in fact, he almost had an Australian accent at times! (Apparently he learnt off all the Aussie backpackers who used to stay for ages). He even helped us improve some of our Turkish pronunciation :) But importantly, the food is also lovely! Very light and fresh, and highly affordable. Definitely pay a visit if you are around the area.

“Warm and friendly, tasty local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

A small restaurant serving local food. Friendly staff make the guests welcomes the food is well prepared and tasty. The staff went the extra distance when we asked them about the preparation of the meal. The food looked good on the plate and loved up to its promise.
Cheap, quality, local food.

“Best lunch in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Great food and quick service. Shines compared to other Main Street joints. Kofta is authentic and borek is good as well. Good soup and salads, we came back for seconds.
