Food was good but not excellent. Servers were friendly and very helpful. Bad part is smoking alloved in a dinner area and all my family and friends smell like a ashtray. We never smoke it bothers us so much even we did not enjoy good food. I will never, ever go this place.

We ended up at this restaurant two nights in a row and it was all quite fine. Prices are the same all over the place so no surprise there. Just be aware that most everyone smokes and they open up the roof only every once in a while, so you will end up smelling like an ashtray afterwards. the second... More

The place is discreetly located inside a residential area of Ankara. In the summer is very nice to go at night and stay outdoors. You can start with several options of "meze" and choose your preferred fresh fish in front of the restaurant. The typical turkish desserts are the grand finale for your food experience. The waiters are very kind... More

I am living in Ankara since 1990 and I love food and dining out. I have tried many restaurants and I can easily say that this restaurant serves the best sea food dishes and mezes. The aubergine with yogurt and paprika served warm, the cucumber pickle salad, basil and cheese spread are the must try cold appetizers among many more... More

This is a very popular fish restaurant in the Cankaya District of Ankara and situated next door to a very good pub (Crossroads) which is useful for pre or post dinner drinks ! There is a wide variety of fish in this restaurant and it is guaranteed to be fresh. There is also a wide range of fish mezze dishes.... More

The mese, tough good, are limited in diversity. The grilled fish, I already tasted twice and different fishes, meets the best standards. The service is diligent. We could live without the noisy music, but this is a characteristic of so many Turkish restaurants.
