We used to frequent this restaurant a lot. Unfortunately the last 3 visits have not been good.The service was poor. My husbands meal arrived and he had finished by the time mine arrived. Great setting but expensive for such bad service and mediocre food.

First of all, service was late but I could understand that the restaurant was very busy and we can tolerate this. But the food and price was absolute horrible. I left this restaurant hungry and even couldn’t finish the wine. Payed 300 TL for nothing.
