The food is great - you can choose whatever you want to, but if you want to try local turkish cuisine, this is the best place for that thing.
I will recomend the Sish kebab.It's slices of meat with lots of different vegetables. It can be found in all restaurants, but it has a diferent taste everywhere. But here,it is the best.
Also after lunch I recommend you the world famous Turkish kahve (coffee).It's not made in a machine, but is boiled in special plates and is much stornger than the filter cofee. Bon apetit!!!

They offer outdoor dining, a bar downstairs with a limited menu and a dining room upstairs with all the amenities. The atmosphere is quite romantic. There is a lot of dark wood here as in chairs, tables and windows. Also the area is lit with old fashioned wall sconces which make it very European.
We must have been the first American couple to hit this place in a long time, as we had 3 separate waiters and the owner help serve us. They were also very eager to take pictures with us with the promise of mailing the pictures to them. Most of these localities are on the web and have an email address.
We had the usual appetizers and wonderful fresh salad. You can fill up on the bread alone. Although I am partly vegetarian, I must admit that the lamb here is so exquisite that I had my fill of kebab for the next 50 years.
They serve bottled water, which is added to your bill. Fish dishes are plentiful and delicious as are crustaceans; we did not see any lobster however.
You could probably eat for less than $10 each if you share the meals, as Chuck and I often do. We are never able to finish a single portion by ourselves, whether in Turkey or in the States. This is a great place both for the food and the service.
If you are single and enjoy bar life, then downstairs is for you. Smokers will rejoice in Turkey.
