The four of us had a unique and incredible meal at the Asitane. We dined inside on a cool evening, linen table clothes but a very relaxing atmosphere. Drawn from recipes found at the three main palace kitchens - Topkapi, Edirne, and Dolmabach - the menu itself is a historical tour de force. Staff were very familiar with the different ingredients, quite capable of responding to the questions we had. We ordered four different main dishes to share: The chef kindly divided each dish into quarters and we basically servied 4 different courses after the appetizers. Each and every dish was superb, a unique combination of ingredients producing new flavours to us. The service was as excellent as the food. The price for the main dishes was reasonable for what was received, it was less than what we would spend for a comparable meal at home. Upon request were we happily given copies of the menu, along with a small jar of fruit preserves made on the premises. An excellent evening, easily accesible by taxi. We did not see the lunch menu but can assume it is as excellent as the dinner. Dining on the patio in warm weather would be a treat.
