The restaurant is beautiful, a good place to have a nice romantic dinner.

The quality of the food was good but very simple and very very expensive for small portions.

I would recommend it only for special occasions.

This restaurant may be great or disappointing depending on what you are going for. The setting is beautiful. The candlelit ambiance with the pianist in the background inside the grand hall is very romantic. The food on the other hand was disappointing. We travel to eat good food around the world, from local street food to fine dining. This was neither. We ordered a Mezze platter which was fine, but our entrees reminded us of a lean cuisine meal with flavorless rubbery meat, flavorless steamed vegetables and very plain rice. We have much better food in other places for much less (entree is an average of 40 TL) We also felt that in this setting paper napkins and placemats were tacky and inappropriate for the prices charged .

So if you want a very romantic dinner in a beautiful location with good service, then do go. I would recommend getting just a mezze platter and maybe other appetizers. Sit and enjoy the music, ambiance and setting, and then go have dinner elsewhere.

Set in an old Byzantine cistern, this restaurant had live music (violinist and pianist), a roaring fire and excellent quality food for the price. Two of us ate a starter and main with a bottle of wine and bottled water for £75 (220 TL). The waiters were attentive and the atmosphere was perfect. We didn't book a table because we traveled in winter however if you travel in high season I would recommend booking a table.
