“Appauling and extremely rude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

The first issue was when the 5 year old child with us was brought chicken which when cut open was raw in the middle, we of course sent it back. The ther childrens meal ordered was a beef burger which when brought out turned out to be what tasted like a mint lamb burger. Both of the children's meals arrived at 8.30pm, the adult meals then didn't arrive until 9.30pm. We asked the waiter when our meals would be arriving and we were given the excuse that the restaurant was too busy, yet there were empty tables and one of the waiters was still standing on the street trying to get people in to dine. We were later handed the bill and the total came to 116TL. We then requested some form of compensation for the poor service we received. We were then told by the waiter that if we didn't pay the full amount he would "call the soldiers to take us away". We debated with the man for a good while and he became very aggressive and many of the othe diners began turning round to look. The waiter then brought out his phone again claiming he would "call the soldiers". We left the restaurant and some othe diners began asking us what the problem was because they too weren't happy. At this point one of the waiters came over and actually pushed us out of the restaurant and made sarcastic remarks whilst waving that he would "see us for breakfast tomorrow morning". The overall experience was awful, the attitude and behaviour of the waiters, disgraceful and the way we were treated, appauling. We then spoke to a waiter from 'Friartucks' where we had eaten the previous night and he said had we asked where a good place to eat was that would have been the "last place in Ovacik" he would have recommended.

This restaurant fealt like a typical english restaurant. Food was excellant and service quick. Situated on Attaturk Caddesi on the dolmus route so it was an ideal drop of point when returning to our apartment on Oscar complex.

“Friendly Service, Lovely restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we went back twice during our stay in Turkey. The food was lovely, and was in very genrous portions. I requested that they put the tennis on the tv, (Wimbledon was on!) which they did straight away. Would highly recommend a visit
