Lovely restaurant which we discovered after our "prime" destination was closed. Family feel...food authentic....nothing was "pre-made"....service(Erkan) was outstanding...

Had the opportunity to eat here while attending a conference at a nearby hotel. The welcome by the hostess was as reserved as possible while still having ones presence acknowledged. I was seated without a menu and had to wait 10 to 15 minutes to...More

Yes they have a full bar. We didn't see rack of lamb at the time we dined. Perhaps it might be featured on the weekends.
