We were there yesterday. The staff was talking and laughing while there was at least 2 meters distance between them. (!) They were young and not even knew that if you serve food you shouldnt take the napkin box to add napkin and it cant...take more than 5 mins(!) to put it back.-bcoz of talking and laughing- Yet sikma was avarage. Salgam was good. Coffee was good.More

We were 4 adults and 2 kids, the atmosphere was child with cold air coming out from the water surrounded. The toilets were clean and so the tables. The food was perfect, we had a mix grilled platter and it was fast. 3 platters and...2 salads and ayran were enough for all of us and it rated 8 of 10 costed us 131 TL as around 38 us dollars. I suggest this place while in this area there isnt a lot to do.More

We enjoyed a really excellent lunch here in the beautiful setting by the waterfall; lots of fresh vegetables and healthy, green salads. Well-cooked meat kebabs and good fish. I had ayran (the wonderful slightly salty yoghurt drink) and a cup of Turkish tea. Yum!

* One of decent restaurants in Tarsus * Basic food are kebabs and poultry * Limited mezzes are also served * Good location. Especially in summer when the city is 'burning' this place is cool thanks to the waterfalls

We would not come back for the restaurant only but it is a nice place to sit and eat when the rest of Tarsus is boiling hot. The food was good. Locals come here on Sundays.

This is the place to sit down eat, have some tea, and have a nice positive converstaion in Tarsus area. The falling water gives everybody an upbeat smiling mood. The cuisine is strictly Turkish, but they know what they do. There is live fish at...the back, swimming in fresh cold waters of the Berdan river, waterfall. You can order these for your meal as well, and feed the survivors bread crumbs afterwards. There are walkways over the water for your family and friends to enjoy the setting even more. Every order is accompanied by oven hot hand made fresh bread from the house. You can enjoy some Turkish raki or beer with your meal too. You will have a very nice relaxed time in a family atmosphere. A definite must visit, if you are in the area.More

The mezes were great and the lahmacun was excellent. You should definitely try this restaurant if you're visiting Tarsus. No complaints here.

Very helpful staff and good food. i prefer going during the day to get the full affect of the falls but there are also lights at night. You can sit out on the patio which is now screened in with heat lamps.

While eating here you can watch the waterfall on the Berdan river in Tarsus. It is also 15 minutes away from the old town by walking. You can taste here good kebabs of Tarsus.
