SEP-2019 reopened with new management.


Sarnıç is a restaurant which is located inside an 1,500 years old Roman water cistern. The restaurant is rather pricey and offers turkish and mediterranean food. It exists for several decades, but was reopened two years ago [2018] with new management. The reviews on the web are quite enthusiastic, nevertheless be aware of the high prices. However, if you just want to see the cistern its probably better to just drink a coffee.
