    We visited Iskele at lunchtime as it had been recommended by a client. The food was fantastic - we had meze for starter and the waiter was helpful in suggesting that we only needed to order for 2 to share between 4 and it was plenty. I had the Seafood Special Skewer which was delicious, the portions are very generous and I struggled to finish so unfortunately didn't have any room for dessert. However, I did manage a Turkish coffee and rather than just serving it, the waiter asked how I would like it. I asked for it straight up and it certainly delivered! Would recommend it and will probably go back in the evening as I think it would be more lively than lunchtime, also would be nice to sit outside but it was raining when we visited.

    me and my partner have had the wonderful experience since the restaurant first opened. we have had many amazing evenings there,the food is very tasty. the staff are very perfessional that deliver a excellent service. the setting is beautiful, to sit and eat and take in the atmosphere and enjoy really good food.i took my mum there for lunch and for her birthday, she was very pleased and we left feeling very satisfied. i have taken my children there for dinner about 6 o clock,the restaurant wasnt to busy then. it gets very busy later on,so book a table to get your seats. bank hoildays are usually packed through the day and evening. there is comfy seating outside,which is nice to sit there on a walm sunny evening or a sunny afternoon having lunch. the kleftico and mixed grill and prawns are great and great value for money and great portions. you will not leave feeling hungry, you will leave with a smile on your face and be wondering when you will be returning for next meal. the place is really clean. thankyou to the cooks and the staff for all your hard work, well done for providing me and my family with a excellent dining experience. thankyou to the boss for bringing me a lovely beautiful restaurant to my doorstep. p.s i really love that blue plate on the wall, i want one or my house. thankyou guys. sammy and family

    We ate there on a Sunday evening and it was fairly quiet, but I'd passed by on Saturday afternoon at around 4pm and it was buzzing. The service was very friendly: the waitress asked me where I got my pendant as she'd like one like that. Very keen to please. We enjoyed the meal - portions were good but not over-facing. Very tasty.
