Bastani restaurant is beautiful and is a very atmospheric place to hang around for a while.
We enjoyed some dishes that we didn't see or get to try anywhere else in Iran - plum stew, celery stew, baked yoghurt rice with chicken, and a meaty stuffed flat bread.

Bastani is located within the old bazaar. Stepping in is like stepping into another world, with a small courtyard with central fountain. The restaurant has elaborate domed arches, decorated in a very traditional way with elaborate mirror-work and Persian paintings on the walls.

The food was simply outstanding - good portions, excellent choice, tasted great. The ice-creams were excellent as well. This is one restaurant worth taking pictures in, and coming back to again and again in Esfahan.

The food here was good, and it's a nice setting - low tables around a courtyard and bigger tables inside for groups. It's very much a tourist restaurant, and from what I saw and experienced caters to large groups. As a solo traveller however I was not made to feel welcome - first of all a waiter said there was no table for me despite there being a few empty tables. When the manager stepped in he found me a table, but the service that followed was very unfriendly, and towards the end of my meal I was asked to "finish soon". So much for a relaxing lunch...

There are better restaurants in Esfahan. Meet some locals and let them take you places - you'll have a great experience and great food.
