This restaurant is not a place to eat,sit and chat. You have to eat and go. It is nearly at fast food restaurant speed. Food is good & delicious but you have to know it is a bit too fatty. If you want to have alcohol the choices are limited.

Came for a business lunch, invited by a local host. There is a big variety of Turkish dishes and appetizers. I had the Giaourtlou Kebab - Great. Their lamb dishes also looked very nice.

It was a nice typical 'atmospheric' Izmir night on the Cordon and I was attracted by a beautiful old mansion which housed a restaurant. It was fully booked and people were enjoying typical Turkish grilled food. Lucky for me ... the place is big and a very friendly waiter arranged me soon a nice place along the wall enlivened with...

Food is very, very good, well prepared, well served, well presented. The restaurant is pleasantly busy but not noisy. The staff is attentive and polite. Prices are normal, given that the small appetizers, dessert and coffee are free. They serve Wine and beer.

Well cooked and served Traditional Turkish food. Surprisingly they serve beer and wine. Very good and friendly service; speak English too. Romantic and prestigious location in front of the sea. Tip: drink Turkish coffee the traditional way and be ready for the irresistible sweets.
