Been to this restaurant many times and have never had a bad meal yet. Lovely ambience, lovely family who run the place. Everything's cooked fresh. Ottoman chicken is to die for. Best restaurant in Ovacik by far.

Been twice so far and food has been excellent well looked after in a happy environment. Mother always cooks me Turkish liver which is not even on the menu. I requested it. 10 mins later the liver arrived fresh from the butchers and then cooked to perfection.

Pleasantly surprised. Lovely food. Very good value for money. Will definitely go back. The only down side was a pushy young waiter, he just wanted to get us to order more drinks really quickly and was pushing others to order quicker! But was no real problem he was a nice lad just a lot to learn I guess. Well worth... More

Great local food, fresh fish cooked on bbq in view. They speak good English and also try to teach you Turkish!! Family owned and run. Frontman is Kurt who has built the business over many years. Nothing is too much trouble for them and the prices are very competitive.
