    vegetarian cuisine in Antalya

    by marsistanbul Updated Jul 1, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hi to everyone:)
    ..."they often fry food in pork fat in Turkey".!!WOW!!! first,as you know that we're moslem country and therefore,we never&ever use or eat pork meals,products or its oil.
    According to moslem belief,it is a big sin!!!
    145. Say: "I find not in the Message received by me by inspiration any (meat) forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be dead meat, or blood poured forth, or the flesh of swine,- for it is an abomination - or, what is impious, (meat) on which a name has been invoked, other than Allah's". But (even so), if a person is forced by necessity, without willful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits,- thy Lord is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. (The Holy Quran-6. The Cattle (Al-Anàam)
    We always use sunflower,olive,corn,nut,real butter,sesame oils or margarins(made by vegetable products),etc.
    YES..we..TURKS!! are also great vegetarians:)and we have great legacy of Ottaman cuise..(one of the 3.biggest..Chinese-French&Ottoman or Turkish) Our cuisine has more than 1001 different kinda vegetable dishes,most probably more than 40 aubergine dishes,hundreds&hundreds variaties of salads,real tomato(Antalya is the center of its)fresh or dried beans,carrot,okra,green or red peppers,peas,celery,spinach,purslane,zucchini,fresh pinto,jerusalem artichokes,leeks,etc..delicious pilavs(rice)plain or with vegetable,I don't know how many soups,pastries..cheese(white or yellow)
    Please be sure,our country is a heaven for vegetarians,and every kind of restaurant has of their own vegetarian menu.
    If you need to know more about our vegetarian cuisine,pls visit..
    www.kultur.gov.tr/EN/ or www.bigglook.com/biggmenueng/index.
    I'm so sorry for detailed response..pls enjoy yr travel and have a safe journey in TURKEY(not turkey)..
    brgds.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I lived more than 6-7 years in this beautiful city and therefore I may say I am an expert of Antalya:-)
    Here is the best,elegant fish restaurant in Antalya but expensive:-)
    On the Lara road facing the sea,ANTALYA BALIKEVI(a.k.a YALI BALIKEVi)is highly remarkable not only for the view but for the beauty of its decoration,and maintains its place as one of the leading names in Turkey for its first class seafood restaurant.
    At Antalya Balikevi,it is possible to find all types of seafood from A to Z.
    The restaurant is situated an area of approximately 5000sqm within magnificently arranged garden.In addition,during the summer months it provides service to its select customers with a half-size Olympic swimming pool,snack bar and garden cafe.

    I am enjoying delicious Turkish food

    On the way to Karaalioglu Park in Antalya we stumble to this nice restaurant. I am not sure the name of the restaurants but according to the front of the menu, it is call Bizim Sofra restaurant. It is located on the main road towards Antalya major park Karaalioglu. They serve Turkish food and it was delicious. The price is quite reasonable.

    by piglet44 Written Apr 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    this is a restaurant at the end of the Pedestrian street where all the shops are and facing the sea. Great location and lovely service.It was funny that as we were sitting there all the lights went out, but they have their own generator so it was okay.
    The service was great and the atmosphere brilliant. Have the fresh fish!
    They have 7 different kinds.

    A peaceful place to sit by the sea, not so special with the food, but the best thing to do is to sit by the fireplace in winter, listenig to nice music.
    Also in here you can find a small model of the ancient city of Side.

    At the bus stop, was a cafe where we had thin cheese filled pancakes, freshlymade, and a plate of grapes. It was one of the nicest snacks I've ever tasted, We re-ordered several times while waiting for the mini bus to take us down to Olimpus.
    The dough mixture is cooked over an upturned cast-iron wok -like vessel, under which is fire.

    Favorite Dish: the 'pancakes'

    Turku Bar - Bize Once Dost Gerek: Traditional turkish music + food

    the band

    Not too many tourist go to this place, even though it's located in the old town. It's a small bar on the second floor, which offers great life performances. You can listen to the traditional Turkish music. And you might also want to learn how to dance, as from time to time the bartender hits the dance floor. It's an amazing experience.

    Workers place....: Communicate by hands and sounds.

    by Martin_S. Written Mar 29, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dinner in Antalya, Turkey

    Sorry but we do not have the name of this restaurant, but a person pointed it out to us as a "workers" place, where only workers went to eat. Just our kind of place. It was not fancy as you can see, but after we managed to communicate (by hands and sounds only as we know no Turkish and they did not know English) by going into the kitchen and we had half the workers there trying to help, we managed to get our meal.

    Favorite Dish: The lamb dishes had to be the best, no matter what they were. We had kabob, shishlick, fresh salads, fresh bread, and to top it all off the portions were generous. Also there was always service on the spot, as you can see in the pic they were always there at your elbow if you wanted something, but were not pushy or intrusive.....

    Develi Restaurant: Kebab House... One of the best choices

    by Erkmen Updated Aug 17, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A table in the restaurant..

    Turkish Kebap is famous all around the world.. and when you are in Antalya, besides all those touristic restaurants, I can advice one real good restaurant, where you can have delicious Turkish food and nice kebaps.

    When you are in the restaurant, just care attention that you should be really hungry.. cause all those delicious starters will make you think that, thats all you can eat, however you should spare some space for the main course Kebaps..

    Favorite Dish: My Favourite dishes are "Adana Kebap" and "Ali Nazik".. You can also try kebap with aubergine and Kebap with nuts...

  • Coco Bar: Friendliest Bar/restaurant in Town!!

    by Andreas&Anneli Written Aug 12, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you go to Antalya you MUST make a visit to Coco (pronounced jojo, mening “friend”) Bar at Lara Brach!! We have never tasted as good Lamb shish kebabs anywhere else in Turkey! For 4 Euro you will get a big portion with rice, chips and vegetables and several big bits of superbly marinated fresh lamb...yummi!! Among the small dishes we can mention a real tasty aubergine sallad with lots of garlic for 1 Euro, and a wonderful cheese-mushrom omelett for 2 Euro.
    If you just want to have an Efes (1 Euro) or some other drink (Raki 2 Euro) that´ll also be fine, and you will get a big bowl of splendid roasted peanuts for free to go with the drink.
    The owner is extremely friendly, and you will feel really wellcome and taken care of, and from the cosy terrace you can watch the Turkish every day life passing by down on the street, or even see the local football team play a game late at night!
    Say hello to Metin (one of the two owners) from us!

    COCO CAFE BAR
    Örnekköy Carsi Ici No:9
    Tel: (0.242) 349 20 63
    Open: 13-04 every day!

    Favorite Dish: Shish Kebap

    Kebab street: Delicious kebab

    by Jusba Written Jul 23, 2003

    The street (I don´t remember it´s name but I´m sure every local knows about it) is full of kebab spots, JUST PICK ONE!

    Favorite Dish: Excellent sauce on the side and the meat is tasty. In our short visit to Antalya, we went twice to this street.
    But kebab is not all Antalya offers.

    Kismet Balikcisi: Fish Restaurant..

    by Erkmen Written Jul 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kismet Balikcisi

    In Antalya you can find many touristy Restaurants.. However I prefer the ones where locals choose.. Kismet Balikcisi is my favourite Fish restaurant in Antalya.. Everytime I visit Antalya, I wont pass without eating there..

    The fishes are fresh and really delicious, The starters are very tasty... .. And most important, you are having one of your tastiest fishess for a funny price.. (Half price compared with Fish restaurants in Istanbul)

    The restaurant is located at the old "east bus Station" ( Eski Dogu Garaji)... You can reach there by 10 min. walking from the city center.. A place where local buses were leaving, now turned out to be a local market.. Inside the market there are also fish sellers and down the road, you will find the Fish restaurants.. There are around 6-7 Fish restaurants.. All are crowded at nights, and you can all see locals eating there.. So no hussle for tourists.. Instead of being ripped off in a touristy Fish restaurant inside the Kaleici, I suggest you to choose the ones outside Kaleici (Inside the castle)

    Favorite Dish: Seasonal fishes will be your favourite.. You choose what you want from a variety of fishes and they weight it first and cook afterwards.. And you pay according to the weight of your choosen fish..

    Calamary, cooked shrimps are also a favourite..

    If you are not filled up with fish try the deserts also..:)

    Fish and Seafood

    by Leipzig Updated Jul 1, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    f

    The best restaurants are in the harbour district

    Favorite Dish: Antalya is situated on the sea and has access to an abundance of fish and shellfish. A typical main course fish dish is simply prepared and always fresh.
    Many fish are priced by weight, so check with the waiter when you order as it can be expensive.
