The atmosphere here is very nice- quaint and romantic.

A quiet place with a mixed crowd of young to more mature, staff is very polite and attentive, and the food was very good.

Had soups for starters which were excellent, and from mains we all went for fish which was perfectly cooked. between us we had monkfish, prawns, scallops, turbot- and all of them were great (turbot slightly overdone).

The only other place that does fish so well is Scott’s in London.

However the pasta with pepper sauce that accompanied my monkfish was tasteless.

Recommended- the best place for fish I have tried in Austria and one of the best I have generally been to in any country I visited!

The waiters were very kind and they explained the menu very detailly. The dishes were very delicious and attractive. Shrimps and the lobster were perfect.

To start with (see other reviews) The only thing that is Turkish is the name. This is a fish restaurant. The ambience is extremely pleasant. You can watch the chefs at work or sit at the far end of the restaurant. The menu is refreshingly simple. Try the 'Skipper', mixed fish in butter sauce, fine simple flavours. As we live in the South of England where the lobster is superb, we tend to stick to sole or the prawns San Danieli (rather rich). There is no tomato ketchup on anything. (We have eaten there many times). Desserts are fun. You can watch your chocolate souffle being made. Wines are not cheap but you may have a glass or twoif you wish. (Austrian wine is on the whole light and cheerful especially the white). Kervaseray is not cheap but compares favourably with J Sheeky in London which is of a similar class. This is a restful place patronised by businessmen, politicians and couples. Many are regulars including us.
