  • Diana GOh my goodness, what a lovely spot for amazing shared dishes and wine. Highlights for me were the labneh, hunkar begendi (braised lamb shank), and mushroom risotto. I hear brunch here is amazing, too.

  • Merve I.Must try Zerde (It is basically Sütlaç.)

    55555 by Merve I.

  • Nurgul E.I tried Lebni. My suggestion is for the Chef that yogurt should be mix with smashed walnut and nuts makes the meze more delicious .. Also , Imam bayildi needs more beef and ingredients with spicy ..

    55555 by Nurgul E.

  • Merve I.This place needs a Turkish chef for an excellent dish since the food is Turkish. Service is great (the food came quick and waiter was polite) but the food wasn't well-done.

    55555 by Merve I.

  • Merve I.The waiter said that the owner is Spanish, but they need to change the name of the restaurant then. Even the name of the restaurant is Turkish. Zaytinya (Zeytinya) means olive oil.

    33333 by Merve I.

  • Merve I.This is mostly Turkish food but the owner is Greek probably (because they translated Turkish food into Greek). However, nice restaurant.

    55555 by Merve I.
