Place is around the corner from hotel. Went in for the lamb and enjoyed everything! Started with babushka with right out of the oven pita bread! The lamb dish was wonderful and I'll try to go back before leaving the island!

We are really sorry. That flyer must be old because because some weeks ago we started to open at 4PM. Only Saturdays and Sundays we are open from 12PM. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we can make it up for you.

Hole in the wall Turkish Restaurant in Condado -not fancy but fun and the Lavash is to die for, great kabobs, Mediterranean food. We got wonderful service. Baklava is imported from Turkey. Try the Lemon or Apple Tea - a Turkish treat.

I am unsure if meat is halal. It is within walking distance from Condado Hilton. It is directly across from Marriott Stellaris in Condado. You won't be disappointed!
