Cineralti Döner: Our favourite Döner
If you like to enjoy a real Döner food like the local people, try this one.
Normally you will sit outside at the main shopping street, with a mix of local shoppers or employees of nearby offices, and have your lunch / snack / little diner at the streetside. They also have a small but very clean restaurant some 30 m around the corner, but the atmosphere (and the Döner taste) is best at the streetside.
Quality is good and tasty, the staff very friendly, and prices are *very* modest (2 portions of 150 g Döner ( what is measured is the weight of the real meat, not that of salad, pide etc.) + soft drinks approx. 15 TLY, depending on what you orderd).
A little caveat: This Döner has no license for alcohol, not even beer. But try the traditional "Ayran" (salty Turkish yoghurt drink) instead; it's healty, refreshing and very tasty and good with Döner food.
We liked this place very much for it's tasty food and authentic atmosphere and really can recommend it.
Favorite Dish: Chicken (= Tavuk) Döner wrapped in Pide bread; you eat it from the hand. If you like, ask for additional garlic sauce (no extra price).
They also have lamb and beef Döner, but chicken was our most favorite (you can see it grilled on the photo).

Lacivert: Best restaurant in Turkey, both price and quality.
This restaurant was recommended by the tourist information representative. It is a restaurant that locals go to, the food is not as expensive as those places where they try to get you to go in, "Yes, Please" and the quality is better. Also, the prices are listed and there is no surprise. This is important in Turkey because most restaurants, big and small, chain and all have different prices for tourists. Don't ever pay more than 2 Lira for a tea, big bottle of water nor a Turkish coffee. Here you should try the chicken brochettes. They are chicken breast and very tasty. The dessert was delicious, I had the Kunefe. It's with syrup and fresh cheese. You get two free entrees with the meal, yoghurt as well as a chili dish. I went there in July 2009. For chicken expect to pay about 8 to 10 Lira, with all condiments and salad. The service is also amazing.
Favorite Dish: Chicken brochettes and dessert kunefee.

Favorite Dish: Mezes
Apollonika: A Nice Place to Rest
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.
various: Antalya's most special flavors 2
Tourism,migration,new comers or neocolonialism have been delivered or captured of the city,most of the restaurant or cafes forgot of their traditional or province cuisines..They've all funny-flavorless touristy menus,sad thing that they're still presenting and serving as its as a Turkish cuisine!!! you think so:o)
There are very few local restaurants which are still perform and continue of our traditional province kitchen(Antalya) or Turkish cuisine.They're not well furnished,fancy or posh places,they're all "LOCAL ICONS".You never n ever disappintment..always keep their amazing tastes,reasonable price,friendly service,a naive atmosphere,simple tables,pictures or decorations,which gives you an identity and gusto..
Tandirci Hasan(tandouri),Pacaci Saban(lamb trotter soup),Donerci Hakki Baba(doner kebap),Piyazci Mustafa(bean salad with tahini),Zamora Borek(cheese or mince pie),Yasar Usta(ice cream or fluted deep fried fritters in thick syrup),Ozdoyum(sish kebap+pumkin dessert with tahini),Sisci Ramazan Usta(sish kebap) or Borekci Tevfik Usta,Kaleici simit firini(simit)..they're all my " Local Hero or Icons"..
I have more than these but will keep its to myself and my special guests:o)
I don't want to give you of their addresses,pls ask to locals-real locals-they'll show you of their secret places,I know that sometimes they guide you wrong directions but never give up,because most of them on the narrow streets of the city,and enjoy your breakfast,lunch or dinner..I'm just humble,simple foodie..jajaja

Ozman Donner: Kebabs
Seven of us decided to have lunch in a kebab house. The waiter spoke excellent English and was really good with the child in our group. He also had a good sense of humour.
I tried the chicken wrap. The chicken was slightly spiced which was just to my taste. There were chillies and hot sauce on the tables if you wanted more spice.
I got a 'normal' sized wrap. It was huge!! I really struggled when I got halfway through!
I enjoyed the wrap while I was eating it, but it did repeat on me for the rest of the day.

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

I highly recommend Restaurant...
I highly recommend Restaurant Kirk Merdiven, a Turkish restaurant. They serve very good Turkish specialties for very little money.
The atmosphere is very picturesque. You are eating on a courtyard with lemon trees growing over your head. The (adorable) straycats are sitting next to you on a brick wall while you're eating. The owner is a very kind and friendly man who tries to give you a good time.
Favorite Dish: My favourite menu overthere was the Shepard's Kebab, a menu for two persons which is served on a stove.
My favourite restaurant was...
My favourite restaurant was one of the kebab houses of the main street in the tourist part of the city. I am afraid i cannot remember its name or any more location info but there are plenty of them, all grouped together.
Favorite Dish: Doner kebab with yogurt and tomato sauce. Yum and very cheap!
We found three wonderful...
We found three wonderful restaurants. The first one is Cabanas. It's found by the Hiderlik Kuber (an old Roman tower thought to be a lighthouse). It has seating outside overlooking the tower and the bay and must have the most beautiful view in Antalya (and there are many beautiful views). The food is wonderful, but the wine wasn't all that good (it got better as I got half way through it).
The view and the hospitality were memorable. We went back to eat there a second time and they greeted us like long lost friends.
Favorite Dish: Jackie had the shrimp and I had the grill chicken. Both were superb.
A second favorite restaurant...
A second favorite restaurant was the restaurant at Hotel Alp Pasa.
This restaurant has charm and you want to go there after dark. It has soft candlelight and soft electric lights which seem to warm the stone walls of the courtyard where you are eating.
Favorite Dish: I had the pepper steak and the chicken shish. Both were outstanding (great sauces and I don't like sauces).
The third restaurant that...
The third restaurant that should be given notice is the restaurant at the Marina Hotel. This one didn't have a view, but was the most elegant.
The restaurant rates right up there with any elegant restaurant in the state. It's on an enclosed patio on a level below the pool. There is a glass wall into the pool so you can see swimmers if you care to. It also had live entertainment with two people. One played the piano and the other the cello.
Favorite Dish: I had a duck with a cherry sauce (delicious) and Jaclyn had a chicken curry. Both were exceptional.
