“Great Turkish Food”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Great food, traditional dishes, fresh ingredients and a spacious terrace make this place perfect for summer/autumn lunches or dinners. The staff is quick and helpful and I even enjoyed the pop Turkish music along with my food (though I only got to actually hear the music after I had a few bites, we were coming straight from the beach and were famished). I like Turkish food and try every restaurant can find and this is very good. Enjoy!

“recently renovated terasa improves the atmosphere, food still great!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Been going for a few years and it is always solid. Of course the grilled options are great--try the skewered lamb on rice for a fine meal. Share with others and choose some sides such as a variety or yogurts, different grilled vegetables, salads, and bread. Choose a shaworma or doner if that is your preference, or the traditional iskender. All good choices. And the best part: dessert! A few different varieties of baclava--I got the mixed plate to try each of some and while not quite as good as those sold on the streets of Istanbul, it is an admirable attempt. The rice with milk is also a great choice.

The newly renovated terasa results in an open and clean environment; the bathrooms are cleaned; and from many of the seats you can see the gents in the kitchen doing their trade.

Service can be a bit shaky. The newer, less experienced wait staff might be more inclined to say no to a special request, like a half order of yogurt cream, mixed with a half order of yogurt cream with parsley. Initial answer was no, but after bringing in the supervisor, was good to go. Another one was asked for a parsley salad, just chopped parsley, and the answer was very quickly yes. They seem flexible but sometimes takes some proactivity to make it happen.

Aside from this, the food, atmosphere, and total experience add up to a must visit in Constanta.
