We have been to this restaurant before and the food was wonderful as usual. Different menu this time, with 4 courses. Lovely home cooked, Turkish food. Very quick service and hot food, which was delicious. Such a lovely, welcoming place and cosy. Will be going again soon.

A absolutely fantastic evening with great company and lovely food and wine. One of the best meals we've had in northern Cyprus. It's nice to find a restaurant in the north that does more than the kebab / fish and chips offering. The staff were very attentive the surrounding warm comfortable Cannot fault the place. Although it's worth saying not... More

This restaurant is very small but has a big atmosphere I think about 10 tables so booking is advised the food is varied and very good at very reasonable prices

The food was delicious and all homemade. Soup to start, with bread, main course, pudding, coffee, brandy and we also ordered a bottle of white wine.... More

Food is better in the summer when there is a higher turnover. Small balcony for outdoor dining. Fire indoors in the winter. Large portions and good soup.

On our first visit we arrived without booking but a table was available. Our order was taken quickly. The ambience is very pleasant. The menu is quite short and on both occasions we went, the soup was lentil (very nice) and the desert was a small slice of cake a bit like a rum baba. On the first occasion I... More

What a wonderful surprise! We were staying nearby and found this wonderful restaurant. Fabulous food. Tremendous value for money. Just so lovely. The owner is an artist and her paintings adorn the walls. You can buy items you like. The menu is great and includes three courses plus coffee and brandy. The interior is so welcoming. White walls with art... More

All the food was authentic, fresh and locally sourced and is made daily by the the lovely owner and host (we didn't get her name), her partner runs the BBQ grill and her 3 dogs guard the kitchen. My wife and myself both... More
