“Substandard food and smoking permitted indoors. Go somewhere else”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

This was the second time I ate at this restaurant in Ortakoy. While the location is nice, there is nothing more to comment on. The food is below average at best. We had pasta dishes which were tasteless. We found ourselves adding salt and pepper but the biggest issue is that even though we were inside, guests started smoking within view of the big sign that says smoking is not permitted indoors in Turkey! It's one thing to smoke on the outside terraces where there is fresh air, these people started smoking totally inside the restaurant with no regard to others!! When I asked the waiter, he just shrugged. Really? Shouldn't you be fined? When I asked to speak to the manager, he shrugged too. If this "restaurant" cannot even enforce its non smoking rules that apply to the entire country, it should be fined! Don't go here and I hope that the restaurant is fined. Really, smokers, be considerate of those who don't smoke. Wreck your body and lungs on your own time.
