Description: Divan is more than just another restaurant, lounge or cafe, it’s a place where people get together to meet each other, to tell stories, to share from their experiences, from their food plate, which may be different than yours. It’s a magical place, created as a melting pot between traditional and progress. Between the modern, noisy, agitated Turkey and its traditional counterpart, filled with meaningful stories of wise or adventurous man. At Divan, everything is made following this rule of reuniting the two sides of life, progress and evolution.

I took my family out for dinner here and we had a nice, quiet time on a Saturday evening. The food was great, well-cooked and the servings were more than enough. The service was fine, our waiter recommended dishes based on our preferences and brought everything on time.
However, the check was a bit surprising. We had estimated our tab at almost half the price they charged us. We only realized it once we left and decided not to make such a big fuss about it, although paying twice the price of your orders plus tips at an already overpriced restaurant can ruin a great food experience.

Divan is located right in the bussling old city center. The menu offers a variety of Turkish dishes at reasonable prices for the city center (a bit high compared w the rest of city), food is delicious, service is average, can be poor when crowded, especially during w-ends.

The atmoshpere is nice and the summer terrace (right on the street) is something different: has pillows and small tables.

The food is very good, although the place can get a bit crowded - we went on a Friday night. The service is good, average let's say. The music, Turkish, can get a bit too loud. They also have dancers, very good ones. It seems like a nice place for private parties, if you are into this kind of culture. Again, the good is very good, big plates and various dishes to choose from.
