Sveyka reminds one of another era with its old fashioned dining room and service. The food is excellent with the menu full of delicacies, one more delicious than the other. The staff is friendly and the service is excellent.

We were brought here on our group tour of eastern Turkey. It was one of the best meals we had on the tour. They brought out round after round of small appetizer dishes, followed by a main course of 3 types of kebabs. Everything was especially delicious, a real treat!

Stopped in for a late lunch. Food was delicious, especially the aleppo kebab! The atmosphere was nice and laid back with soft music.

We were told about this restaurant by the staff at the Savon Hotel. It was a quiet evening during the Holy month of Ramadan so the restaurant was deserted. However the staff were very friendly & spoke good English. The meal was very nice & the local wine was of a good standard

The Restaurant is located directly adjacent to the synagogue on Independence Avenue., Just across Sarımi Mosque and steps from the Catholic Church behind the mosque, a bit north if Habib Naccar Mosque. In other words, in its beautiful 1944 renovated old stone building, it brings all the Hatay culinary traditions together for the pleasure of your palate. Lovely white cloth... More

Have eaten here twice, once with spouse and once alone, and the food is great. It is pricey, by comparison to other local fare, but globally speaking quite modest for quality food. Good service and a nice large dining room; the atmosphere can be somewhat non-existent on a week-night, but it actually makes for a more peaceful meal than busier... More

Excellent food, great ambiance, what else you may need to have a great day in Antakya. Try if possible kebap with cherries, you will not regret it...

This restaurant is on the Main Street of the city. The interior design is very nice. You can taste local specials. It is one of the best restaurants in the city that you have to try if you want to have a taste of Antakya kitchen. Try: tepsi oruk, cig kofte, keshkek, cherry kebab, kaz bashi, zahter salad.

Whatever they bring to your table is delicious. You will have journey from one taste to another. Try to taste a small piece from all. You will love it.
