Had lunch as part of a tour. Lunch contained 3 appetizers, calamari/salad/fish roll, with sea bream as entree. All are good; particularly the sea bream was fresh. Despite large group, service was attentive.

Wow! Great food, ambiance, service, price. Nothing was amiss. Perfect score. Appetizers were delicious. Yogurt and cucumber with mint was cool and refreshing. Grilled sea bass was prepared perfectly. We had dessert trio and that was a delightful finish. Service was attentive but not intrusive....Payment is dollar, euro, credit card, or lira. Sending all my love from California to this fine establishment!More

Great meals, amazing stuff, and pretty good prices for such quality. They even have a russian-speaking waiter, which is pretty rare for Ankara.

The restaurant is situated at a location that is reachable by taxi mainly which is also one of the most famous restaurants in Ankara interms of important guests and different food presentations. The menu is mainly seafood but they also serve meat for the guests...as an additional variety. The wine menu is meeting the needs. The food variety and taste is fine. Some of the servings very interesting like calamari and octopus which I believe there is no need but those were their signature dishes. The staff are friendly and helpful. The only problem of the restaurant is all sittings are "smoking" and there seems no place for nonsmokers which was definitely a negative experience especially during these days. They were opening the roof so as to allow fresh air but meaningless unfortunately. I suggest to make reservations prior to your visit and pls consider once more if you are not smoking.More

Great restaraunt for special occasions. Delisious appetizers, fresh fish, amazing deserts. Service is attentive and quick. Pricy in terms of Turkey, but worth it. Recommended!

Excellent food and great staff but the prices were high. We had to leave at 19:00 sharp very strict on time due to covid.

not like the old times, it was the best place in Ankara probably 7-8 years ago, when they moved a new bigger place, the taste and all of the meaning is gone and lost unfortunately

located in the embassy area. The fishes are really good. the waiter introduces like 20 appetizers, we chosen three, which are all amazing . Extremely good services, perfect English. Wines chosen are good too. Given the exchange rate it is really value for money. 位於使館區。...魚真的很好。 服務員介紹了20種開胃菜,我們選擇了3種,都很棒。 極好的服務,完美的英語。 選擇的葡萄酒也很好。 考慮到匯率,這確實物有所值。More

Never fails to impress. As usual the cold mezes, appetizers and the fish were very delicious. The service was outstanding i dint even have to lift my hand up, an eye contact was enough. The hot helva was a feast in your mouth.

One of the most respected fish restaurants in Ankara losing touch. We wanted a non smoking table and taken to a lesser attractive place that made us feel that smoking is an advantage. We arrived early and there is a rush going on and we...can watch the laundry room where they keptnthe linens because the door is wide open. The last nail in the coffin was the hair in the olive oil. We left Trilye after this and I’m sorry to see this place like this.. It seems that old golden days have gone away..More
