Upon entering the two-storey Oak Bay house that is home to Nars Café Bistro you will be among friends. The sharing of food in Turkey is considered an expression of friendship. Dine in the classic atmosphere with a Mediterranean feel either on the first or second floor dining rooms. On warm summer days, book a table on the patio and admire the garden of herbs that are added to the many exotic menu items. Experience a delicious variety of traditional home cooked dishes that were served to Ottoman Sultans in a time long past.
Try Mezes to Share
Start your dinner with mezes, a selection of meat, poultry, seafood and vegetable appetizers. Ask your server about the selection of cold mezes, or choose from a variety of hot mezes including dolma, which are grape leaves stuffed with ground beef, rice and herbs. Another popular starter comes in the form of Karides, which consist of shrimp, mushroom, green pepperand and tomato baked in an earthenware dish. Enrich your exotic experience with Turkish beer or a selection of red and white wines.
A Unique Dining Experience
Savour exotic dishes such as the karisik (mixed) kebap, grilled kofte (meat ball), chicken breast and lamb on pita or the hunkar begendi (sautéed lamb on roasted eggplant puree). Vegetarians will like the combination plate with pilaf or potatoes, vegetables, mucver (zuccuni cake), feta and spinach, borek (phyllo with seasonal ingredients) humus, pita and salad. There is a four course dinner special with a variety of choices from the menu. Finish off with dessert such as bakalva or the chocolate mint flan. At lunch, enjoy a limited variety of selections that appear on the dinner menu.
