A nice show (a group of accapella singers) with nice food. The decoration of the place is refined. We had a great evening.

Great experience, especially for Ankara-standards ! I congratulate the somehow "micheline-ed" guy to having the balls to open such a place in provincial Ankara. The interior design makes you feel as if you were somewhere in Paris, the selection of food is rich and exclusive...(you dont have to choose the pizza / burger) and the wine menue shows expertise. Well done; we will come again !More

My favorite restaurant of all times! They are serving different tapas everyday but I’ve found out they also renewed their menu too. Today i’ve tried their new sandwhich aladdin and i must say; it was a total new level of chicked wrap. Oh my gosh...it was sooo tasty i still want some more! For the tapas, i tried bresaola filled with a special cheese, i have managed to take the picture of that but aladdin was looong gone 🤣🙈👏More

Yesterday went with my wife and we can recommend to all. Not typical annoying turkish restaurant where you cant chill and eat; no waiters breathing into your neck, no staring staff at your mouth etc. Staff professional and prices are excellent. Should we come to...Ankara next time we go to eat and relax again. Greetings from🇫🇮More

The best food and ambience that you can find in Ankara. Staff are really interested people. Foods are amazing, there is a Michelin star Italian chef. If you are in Ankara, I really recommend you to have an experience of Lavare.

Impressed with outstanding tastes served on a special family dinner. The tapas including ceviche, empanadas, guacamole, causa rellena de pollo were all excellent and leading samples of their original cousine. Main dish was asado de tira and surprised me with its well sealed juicy and...tender taste. Heavenly last shot was churros and I should admit that my sons confessed this being much better than we have tasted in Spain ;) . All in all, the extra ordinary succesfull dishes combined with dedicated service made our experience an unforgettable one. Will definetely visit again as I am very curious to taste the rest of their dishes. Well done Lavare and Chef SerafiniMore

Went there with a couple of friends for lunch. The ambience was nice and the staff were very helpful and attentive. The dishes were mediocre, or maybe we went there with high expectations. The presentation of the dishes were exquisite however the taste was not...matching the presentation. I can understand maybe they wanted to localize the taste for the local people. Still a restaurant i would recommend for the experience but if you are familiar with the how those international tastes shall actually taste like dont keep your expectations high.More

Wonderful for all occasions, dinner and a show - great date night. Highly recommend, the food is unique and NOT your typical bar food. And the fact you can watch a show while you eat? Brilliant.
