The Cade des Cafes introduces a bit of French style in the buzzy center of Ankara - a relaxed mood, excellent Espresso (but Turkish tea is served as well), and great food for lunch, freshly prepared at very reasonable cost. Enjoy the terrace for outside eating, weather permitting :-)

It was our third time when we went to this restaurant with my girlfriend. I ordered fish which was 29 liras and was supposed to be main dish. Well... it came inside of baking paper with ONLY potatoes which were burned and sticked with the baking paper. My girlfriend told in Turkish to service guy and i am not happy... More

Perfect to have a coffee or lunch. This place definitely has a character. A good blend of Turkish food and international cuisine in the menu. More than anything, you should go for the great ambiance.

Recommended by a colleague, I enjoyed a traditional Mixed Kebab and salad main course and roast vegetable pastry starter. The tables to the rear appear to be "dry"- if you want an alcohol drink with your meal take a table at the front of the restaurant

With its French-style decoration and peaceful atmosphere, Café des Cafés very much resembles a café in central Paris. Unfortunately, the servers, while being kind and respectful, are not as debonair and eager to work as their French counterparts. And I wish such a French-inspired café served some (more) dishes specific to French cuisine, like macarons, crème brûlée and éclair. Today,... More

I couldn't find any dishes exciting me in the menu and tastes were very ordinary. Although there were very few people in the cafe the service was very slow. Moreover waiter in the cafe was very rude and impudent, he should immediately be trained to be respectful to the customers or be replaced with a kinder one.

I was not very impressed by the food though. I had high hopes to drink good coffee and non-Turkish dessert, but was very disappointed. To be honest I rarely prefer to go to non-Turkish places when I am in Turkey, there is so much to taste in Turkey, but ıf you are looking for a nice cafe in Tunalı, I... More
