We visited this restaurant last night, it was recommended to us and it was a last minute booking.
On arrival we were presented with 8 starter dishes which were not ordered. We didn't like what was chosen for us so kindly asked for them to be taken away and that we would like to order ourselves. This was not taken well by the staff.
We continued to order some wine and main dishes, all of which was good.
When we asked for the bill I found that they had charged us a cover charge of TL10 per person which when we asked we were told this is normal and it is to cover the cost of the salt & pepper, napkins etc. The service really was poor and the attitude of the staff was very unbelievably bad so on principle I refused to pay this. Once again this didn't go well and we asked politely to see the manager after a long discussion, we asked again and again and finally had to ask him ourselves to speak with us so we could explain why we were unwilling to pay this fee. It took FOREVER and the staff were continually rude but finally the service charge was waived.
Overall a very very disappointing end to a wonderful time in this so derful city. I would never visit this restaurant again and I wouldn't recommend anyone else to visit.
