Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed very much the experience here. The food is very good. The service can seen somehow slow but let's face it. If you are enjoying vacations isn't it you that are excessively over hurried and need to slow down a bit?? The people here are very nice! It's located near Taksim.

“Excellent dinner”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

Found this little place by accident. It doesn't have one of those people who try to grab you to come in. Had terrific dinner with very good service. Went back a second time! Food tastes fresh. Great flavors. Place was busy but not noisy with nice homey atmosphere.

“AMAZING”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

culinary heaven. The owner sat down with us and showed us through the menu and recommended us the most incredible night ahead of us. We had a wonderful cheese and olive dip, their prawns, as well as a veggie mix. Their mezes are out of this world! And we split the meatball entre which was great too. Wonderful selection of wines as well! Will be coming back!

This is amazing in food, friendliness, atmosphere, prices. Natural ingredients go along with a great mix of flavours. Owner Baris is always around and at your service. A great variety of choices and nice wines at very reasonable prices. Lunch and dinner.

“Go for great food and service”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

This local restaurant was near to our apartment and we have been twice in three days. The food is excellent, service friendly and responsive, great Turkish wine list and good vibe! Can't fault it.
