“Lovely Desti Kebab”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

This, along with the marvellous Olive Tree, has to be the best restaurant in Hisaronu as the food and service is faultless. Over the years me and my boyfriend have had Desti kebabs, steaks, fish dishes and other bits and bobs and we have to say that everything is delicious. It is a tad more upmarket than many of the other restaurants, but we see this as a positive thing and love to go here for a special occasion, or just as a treat. Normally a meal would come to under 100YTL, which is fantastic value for money and we will be certain to return next year when we venture back to the town. Love it.

“Never fails to please”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Fourth year in a row here and never once have doubted the food service ambiance etc. very romantic setting and if you book ask for the Juliet table and watch the world go by. A little more expensive than the rest of the restaurants but you get that bit extra to compensate. Worth it all the way.

“High class experience”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

If you are looking for a special night out then this is the venue for you. The food is outstanding and we had the table on the Juliet Balcony which added to the experience. The staff were attentive, as we find in most Turkish restaurants, but the food is on another level.

“lovely food, excellent service”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

liked the look of this restaurant from the front, and when we got seated t the back it was even better, beautiful surroundings and very attentive and welcoming staff.
our orders were taken and brought quickly and they were delicious, there were 4 of us and we each had a starter, massive servings, and complimentary bread,
main meals were served in sizzling dishes at the side of the table and again huge portions, I struggled to eat mine.
2 had dessert of eton mess but although they were ok, not as good as mains,
we had 4 bottles of efes and 1 bottle of wine and the bill was about £70.00.
lovely place and well worth it.
