We wanted to visit Cercis Murat Konagi because years ago Ebru Baybara Demir had been our guide in this area and expressed her desire to open a restaurant featuring traditional recipes of Mardin. We ordered a sampler of appetizers, which, along with a bowl of soup, was almost more than enough for both of us. The Swedish couple next to us ordered this appetizer plus a lamb dish, and it was too much food. The staff gave us a piquant cold tea tasting of mysterious herbs, and we tried the local wine as well. The building is a stone mansion overlooking the vast Mesopotamian plains; you feel as if you are looking at the sea. The tablecloths and all decorations appear to be traditional to the area, and you can purchase a tablecloth. Ebru has wildly succeeded in her dreams.

This restaurant is a combination of local cultures, just like Mardin. Food is the best in the city. Start with meze (lets say traditional Turkish starters) plate. You will love the taste and how it is served - in a silver tray with separate scoops for each meze on it. Try the house wine with mezes, it is definitely delicious and goes well with Mesopotamia view. If you feel like eating something else, assyrian plates would be a good choice. Prices are higher than the other restaurants but its worth paying considering the food and service.

it is one of the few restaurants that serve wine with food. The food was OK - better than some other restaurants we were taken by our tour guides.

The ambiance was great, the decorations, too. But the food was a bit of a disappointment. You never know if it was just your selection or a general rule. Service was good and it was lovely experience, but very pricey.
