One of my new favorite places in Port. Authentic Mediterranean food, with a decent wine list. The bread that they provide is absolutely delicious. My favorite plate is the mixed grill that gives a great selection of the different meat options.

A great Turkish cafe. The large Greek salad was HUGE. We were there for lunch. The fried zucchini patties were interesting and very tasty. My wife ate the salmon which she loved. They are known for a special Lavash puffy bread.
