“Useful locally for a relatively cheap meal”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was close to our hotel or we might not have tried it as it was not very preposessing really, looked more like a takeaway. However we enjoyed our typical tourist meal here, possibly because we did not have high expectations. They have a few tables upstairs which was where we went.
The waiting staff were friendly and talkative and served us in an appropriate timescale for the meal. Despite the name over the door and on the plates, they don't do Turkish food, finding the usual Italian tourist food to be more popular.
The prices were reasonable.
The downside was only the music videos being played on the flat screen television. So much in your face gyrating was not wanted by us somewhat past-it people, especially while eating...although it was nothing you probably don't see on a Saturday night talent show on TV (not that we know much about that either).

“Good value”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Enjoyed having something other than pizza or pasta for a change! Good value - HUGE kebabs, can be cut in two upon request, and truly big enough to share. Yummy meat & toppings, add a coke & you still have money left for gelatto.

“Nightcap”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

My wife and I were walking back to our hotel later in the evening. It seemed open and inviting, so we stopped in just to have a beer or two. Ended up staying until it closed. The personnel was friendly and there were two locals standing at the counter having a drink. We did not have any food. Typcially, this is not something I would have taken the time to review since we only had a few drinks. However, the friendliness of the employees left me wanting to share my good experience.
