Our first dinner in Zenger Pasa Konagi was on a Saturday night, and the atmosphere was very joyful with musicians, people singing, etc. Food is good, especially the meze and the lamb dishes. The ground floor of the restaurant looks more like an antique shop and you have to go upstairs to find the dining room. Part of the house... More

We stopped by with a large group for a summer lunch and were treated very well. The selection of appetizers was extensive, and they were all delicious. We then ordered several spinach gozleme and shared them. The view from the terrace was marvelous and the service was very attentive.

Many people suggested this restaurant however it does not worth to spend a lot of money and time. Nothing was special. Dishes were poor and small. We took our guest to there and felt embrassed. It would be better to go an ordinary one..

The place is located inside the Citadel village. You just have to look for a signage to locate it well. You can't say that it's a restaurant as you enter the ground floor. It's more of a small museum of old Turkish artifacts. When you go up to the stairs, which is actually somehow hidden though, and go to the... More

Having read a recommendation about this restaurant on a Lonely Planet website, and considering it was in the vicinity of the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations which was my primary goal, I decided to have an evening meal at Zenger. Right in the middle of what you called the 'old town', near the citadel, it offers a very traditional, if not... More

We ate an early dinner here and liked the food and the view over Ankara at sunset from our corner table. The restaurant is located in the Citadel on the third floor of what appears to be a centuries-old building. It is necessary to walk up three flights of old, narrow stairs to reach the rustic dining room, which would... More

The area around the citidel, inside the gates, has become pretty touristy and gentrified. Had we known the area was so gentrified I don’t think we would have gone up there for lunch. But we were there and finding the Zenger Pasa Konagi was easy enough. The interior was as others note, similiar to a museum and interesting to browse... More
