This place is so cosy on the street that you should give it a go to understand the soul of the city. Music, food, service all are combined in a wonderful setting. Highly recommended.

First of all the place is really nice and cozy. The food is ordinary but they serve it like a Michelin star restaurant plate. Small portion, big plate, contemporary presentation and high price . They ask you to choose appetizers from the kitchen seems like to be served as they are. But they serve in a different way. You won't... More

Ugh. Food was really mediocre- not well seasoned and had thorny pieces in it. I could have forgiven that because it was a lovely setting except that the staff then tried every rip off imaginable on us.

Beautiful experience. Very fresh and delicate plates. We tried specialties like fresh fava and fresh green garlic. Kokorec was exceptional. Sea greens was delicious. Open meze bar. Great wines, perfect services.

The restaurant is just in the center, doesnot have a garden but a small patio for the smokers and they have tables there. The staff is very friendly and food is satisfying. Definitely loved the herbs/plants we tasted, wine was quite tasty as well. Should give it a try.

Barbun realy great for egean style food, fresh local produce with very special touch of the blond lady cheff. All Mezes, herbs&greens salads are great and my favorite main dishes has been liver and crispy Turkish ravioli! My husband and friends enjoyed very much meat balls. We were so full, skipped the dessert. We will go back again.

Increadible tapas & food with a cozy feel restaurant & an amazing staff which felt us feel like at home. Aegean vegetables & especially the prawns with "kadayıf" needs to be tried.

It was recommended by our hotel . Food was delicious especially " kadayifta karides" . Service was also good and friendly. Price wise it is affordable vs. upmarket and low quality typical Alacati restaurants. Try this , probably you won't disappointed.

A good looking menu packed with local dishes and seafood in a fishing village is an excellent start. However overall it failed to live up to expectations: - Starters weren't too bad, beets with cinnamon were tasty but not inspiring, beans with citrus peel were the best. - For mains we went with fish, a salmon fillet with a carrot...
