Best meal experience in Ankara. The mezzahs had incredible flavor and the service was impeccable! Never has a meal been so different yet so satisfying⛵️☺️☺️

I rarely visit Ankara, after my university years. Ankara has started to enrich in respect of venues in nowadays. New venues has opened around Kavaklıdere, Kuğulu Park. One of them is a pothouse called Afitap Tunus about 2,5 years ago. The manager of the venue...Murat Bey has opened here after he has gained experience in different position in the sector. Later he has expanded the capacity by adding the next place. Two places are combining in a common back garden. We went to the venue with a friend of mine after 14.00 for day drink. I have made reservation before 10 days ago due to I heard that it is a popular place. First, the size and variety of meze fridge draws attention. The waiter explained mezes one by one. We chose Köz Girit, Selanik, Sea bass with basil, salted bonito, salad with blueberry as starter. We took wrapped sole, baby calamari and baby octopus in casserole as hot starters. We opened 35 cl Beylerbeyi rakı. I loved Köz Girit. It might be e nice alternative for classic Girit paste. My favourite one became meze called Selanik. It consisted mushroom and caramelized onion. I found weak the fragrance of seabass with basil. Salted bonito was successful but I ate better ones before. Offering green olive plate was yummy. Salad with blueberry was a different kind. It was looked like gavurdağı salad. It has garnished with pounded walnut. Wrapped sole supported with shrimp was an easy eaten, delighted hot starter. Baby calamari prepared as stuffed calamari. Locked with toothpick. It is serving with cheddar sauce. If you want to the sauce, they pour on it. It also consists shrimp. It is prepared a soft and tasty. Baby octopus came to our table by sizzling in casserole. It was prepared by adding tomato and green pepper. I found it successful except it was a bit salty. After these kinds, we have almost full for main course. The portion sizes of mezes are satisfactory. Tea or coffee, sliced fruit plates and crispy pumpkin dessert with ice cream and tahini are serving in every table before check. We loved the dessert. It is the only dessert kind in the menu. There is no need additional dessert. Our service was very qualified due to the venue is more calm than other days. It was calm but not very free. An application that I have ever seen in here drew my attention. When you scan the QR code on the table, you access a web page evaluating your waiter and venue. This evaluation is reflecting to management instantly and if there is a problem, they solve it fast. Total capacity of the venue is almost 400 person. You can only smoke in front garden section. It has a Retro decoration. There were many waiters. Our waiter has managed the service timing. They served all kinds of foods without losing too much time. The meaning of the name of the venue is woman with a nice face. This word is summing the venue. While the old section is a totally pothouse, as new section has modern lines, more appropriate for families. They also composed a long bar section. If you want, you can take service by sitting there. Here becomes a place preferable especially by woman customers. The cost was 450₺. İt includes 4 kinds of meze, 3 hot starters and alcohol. It is an affordable cost according to Istanbul. Some of you might find expensive in Ankara but it is also normal for me according to service, quality and foods.More

We’ve been here for a business dinner but thanks to the location and the food that was delicious the evening ended up like with old friends! They serve mainly tapas, a good mix between Turkish and Greek food but all of them are really awesome!...Highly recommended but book in advance as it’s very popular and difficult to find seats at the very last moment...More

This is a very good Meyhane with a lot of original Meze's. Meyhane means more entertainment with alcohol but less food so the small dishes called meze work well in a dining.

This is a very warm place at the very heart of the city. Street the restaurant found becomes a very busy entertainment place at the weekends. The restaurant itself is almost fully booked for the evenings throughout the week. So if decide to taste the...different delicious dishes it is better to have a reservation. It is almost impossible to taste different dishes at once, so do not try to do so. As a food lover, I found it very hard to choose from the big list of mezes. It is better to listen to the advice of waiters for the first one or two visits. I really liked the special beef stuffed with mushrooms and many other ingredients. Only thing I can caution is the crowd and noise. If you want to spend a quiet night with your accompanying person, you need to reconsider your decision. As a summary, for good food and fun, this is a very good place.More

You have to book in advance beacuse its packed full everyday, every season. There are open air tables in the front as well as in the back garden where smoking is allowed. The no-smoking area is inside.There are is a wide range of mezes. All...the mezes, hot and cold are delicious and most are characteristic only to this restaurant. The staff is very helpful during the process of choosing the mezes, describing the ingredients. The service is fast. Dont miss it.More
