I have been there with my family. We had a really nice dinner. Whenever I feel like eating something nice and different, I would always like to visit this lovely restaurant.

“Good but not amazing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Service great, staff very welcoming, lovely ambiance. Food? I'm sorry to say was a little disappointing. I so wanted it to be amazing (it was my birthday). Maybe my partner and I just picked the wrong food. We booked the night before and my partner said it was my birthday so could we have a nice table. They all were - so good start. The very nice staff wished me happy birthday as we sat. Nice. Later in the evening a table next to us had a birthday and she got a chorus of happy birthday and a dessert with a sparkler. Oh ....looking forward to mine :)... It never arrived. Maybe tables of 2 don't get the special treatment. So all in all good but the food just didn't quite live up to what we'd expected. Maybe my expectations for Side's number 1 restaurant was just too high but give it a go just don't go for the barbecue fish or the lamb chops....a bit bland.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We ate here and were very impressed with the excellent Food and service, one of the few Restaurants where we were welcomed with just a hello and a smile rather than the usual "Come in and eat " hassle offered at other places. Like i said the Food was excellent, a little more expensive than other places but here you definately get what you pay for...quality and a great atmosphere with very attentive Staff...definately the best Side has to offer we think.

“Good authentic Turkish food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

We attend at lunch time so it was very quiet.

The mains were lovely but the most memorable food for us was the meze starter and hummus. It was devine. It was the best we had during our stay.

Our waiter was extremely attentive and when we asked what ingredients were in the meze dips he was more than happy to tell us all about them and their origins etc...

I image the restaurant is much more fun at night - give it ago. The food was very good and the setting is beautiful - it being opposite the Turkish bath.

“Lovely food, but”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Lovely food, lamb for 2 was amazing. But, be careful when asking for beer, first night we were given bottles, but second visit were brought beer in glasses which did not contain as much, but we were charged for bottles.
