“Good food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Lovely outdoor terrace, which was nice for a romantic meal. Our food was all delicious. We had meze to start, followed by freshly caught fish. We were shown what fish was available that day and advised of the different types. We chose the locally caught fresh fish and it was great! Grilled whole and came with a lovely mixed salad.
Good service and would definitely recommend.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Presents itself as modern mid market restaurant and it does have a positive ambience. The quality of food is average, portions are small, my lamb was badly over cooked. They have squat toilets.

“Nice Food Good Music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Probably the best service quality in town. The music is really good, not frequently experienced in mid level restaurants like this one. The prices are slightly higher than average and starters quality and diversity don't match those of main dishes. The atmosphere is attractive and being very close to the beach, it is also easy to reach by walking

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Wonderful food and service, highly recommended. Surprisingly it was one of the cheaper places I ate in, I expected it to be more.

“Nice food but lots of wasps”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We ate lunch and enjoyed the food but there were loads of wasps which amde the meal a little unenjoyable. Not necessarily the fault of the restaurant but we never noticed it elsewhere in Cirali. Service was excellent with the bread replaced without asking when we knocked it on the floor by accident. We enjoyed the lamb shish and aubergine from the meze menu best. The fish shish was reasonable but I thought a little small.
