We absolutely loved it! Everything in our lunch was perfect...the refreshing mojito, the mezes platter, the spinach filo pastry, the service, the decor, the music, the huge blue mosque canvas painting... We whole-heartedly recommend this hidden gem to everyone who enjoys Mediterranean & Turkish food.
