    Iskele Cafe (Harbour Cafe): Perfect spot for boat watching

    by rovingjay Written May 28, 2014

    4 more images

    This harbour cafe is located right by the day boat harbour in Bitez. It's a real "locals" place and is a little bit out of the way, but if you're heading out of Bitez on a day boat, it's right there, and perfect for a snack before your trip, or a sit down and a drink while you get your land legs back after a day out on the high seas!

    It's a lovely little spot, and great for watching the comings and goings of the captains and boat passengers. It's also not far from the main dolmus station for Bitez, and is a handy little spot for getting a drink on your way back from a hike over the headland.

    Indoor and outdoor seating, lots of patio tables - all overlooking the boats and harbour.

    Favorite Dish: We visited here for breakfast and had a toasted cheese sandwich. But the real draw here is the delicious coffee. All too often, you're served instant coffee in Turkey, so it's a real treat when you are served a decent cup of coffee. I think they must have one of those capsule machines - seriously, the coffee was worth going back for!

    The Black Cat: Laid Back Location for Cheap Eats.

    by rovingjay Written May 28, 2014
    Exterior of the Black Cat
    1 more image

    There's a few tables outside and more inside, and this restaurant offers a relaxed setting for a quick snack or a meal.

    The outside tables are a good place to people-watch, and the service is attentive by laid back. I went there alone, and I wasn't hassled.

    Opening Times
    Breakfast from 09:00. Dinner until 01:00.

    Black Cat or Cats of March?
    This restaurant is known locally as the Black Cat, because of the black cat on the roof, but Mart Kedilari actually translates to Cats of March.

    Favorite Dish: I'd wandered up from the beach and was looking somewhere cheap for a snack, and had a toasted sandwich and chips and Turkish coffee.

    There's no menu for the traditional Turkish dishes (meze etc.) just go to the kitchen to choose what's freshly made for the day.

    They do have a small menu which lists out salads and sandwiches etc.

    Pagoda, Almera, Lemon Tree, Bitez Han, Blue Moon.: Too many to choose from

    by Joycoleman Written Sep 17, 2013

    We have eaten at all these places for either breakfast, lunch or dinner and have had great meals at all of them. We also recommend the Manuela and Black Cat. The food is fab at all of them and prices are very reasonable. You can have set meals for example at Bitez Han 30 Turkish lira for 3 course meal including bottle of very nice wine. Thatt about £10 per reason. Try getting that value for money in the UK

    Favorite Dish: Set menu mezze starter, chicken casserole which comes with vegetables rice and chips then apple pancakes for dessert.

    It is a lovely restaurant with a very good menu with a lot of turkish traditionel food. The atmosfeer in the evening is very romantic. The staff is friendly and they have a good hospitality. The first time we where there was in our honeymoon. We go back every year to celebrate our marriage. Adem the owner sing this year for us. At was the greatest evening. We go there many times alos to sit on there beach.

    Favorite Dish: we like the saltfish the most and the traditional cuisine. We get the biggest surprice when we order one time the amphora kebab. It came in flames and when they broken the pot the meat and flours takes our breath. So amazing. Also the full english breakfast is the best we have. For us is the SEASIDE restaurant the best in Bitez

    ANTONIO'S RESTAURANT: RIGHT BY THE SEA

    by whitecliff62 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Antonio's is a lovely little restaurant just off the beach and just around the corner from the mosque, they cook traditional dishes as well as pizzas, steaks and seafood. The staff are very helpfull and they hold evening entertainment every night. But i thought the bloke on the door was a bit pushy to get you inside the restaurant

    Favorite Dish: The menu was quite large and i picked the peppered steak, which wasn't bad, but very small

    The Black Cat: No Hassle Dining Here

    by Ekaterinburg Updated May 16, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sizzling lamb kebabs
    1 more image

    On our second evening we spent some time sussing out a restaurant away from the seafront and with a more local vibe. The Black Cat is one street back from the beach about a block beyond the Mosque. I was immediately attracted to its sign featuring two cats and its small and spotless exterior. Being allowed to read the menu with no interference from the waiter standing on the terrace, clinched it for us. As the first customers of the evening, in fact the first of the season, we were invited in to examine the food on offer and really enjoyed the descriptions of the various dishes. Eating here was very relaxing with extremely pleasant and courteous service and I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

    Favorite Dish: The cheese and spinach tart we started with and the succulent lamb kebabs for main course were very good indeed.

    LaVas Kebab House: The Best Turkish food in Bitez ?

    by Ekaterinburg Updated May 15, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The flaming pot holding our Testi Kebab

    This restaurant is further back from the beach than the Black Cat and was fairly full every night we passed. The very smoothtalking Maitre D made the claim about 'the best Turkish food in Bitez' and who am I to disagree? We shared a meal here with two fellow Corkonians, Clare and Catherine and while we all enjoyed the food, we felt that the claim of 'most expensive Turkish food in Bitez' could just as easily be applied. We all had kebabs, in this case off the skewer and in Claire and Catherine's case, on a bed of rice and yogurt. Denis and I chose the chef's special, Testi Kebab for two people, the definition of which could easily be nominated for the Booker Prize, so glittering was the prose used to describe it. In the event it was a tasty but not spectacular mixed meat and vegetable stirfry, served in a terracotta pot . For desert we all had baklava and icecream, which again somewhat fell short of the flowery phrases used to sell it to us.The wine here was twice as expensive as any other wine we'd had during the week and ditto with the water.

    This restaurant is good but not as spectacular as it would have you believe. The portions are small and the drinks are expensive. They do make the effort to introduce some authentic Turkish touches to the food and presentation though and they don't have a big screen TV.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dish was the poetically described Testi Kebeab which tasted like a very delicious stirfry but was served most spectacularly in a clay pot on a bed of flames and a whole onion on top. Keeping the onion was an optional extra.

    The Golden Spoon: Hard to Avoid Eating Here

    by Ekaterinburg Written May 15, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Golden Spoon setting up for dinner

    Everybody pushes this restaurant in Bitez and it's pretty hard to avoid it. On our first evening, not yet armed with the necessary skills to shake off touts, we succumbed to pressure and sat down to our first Turkish dinner. The food was quite good, the service efficient and a guitarist with the weirdest Engish accent ever, crooned in the background. In truth, there's absolutely nothing wrong with this restaurant apart from its location on the strip of beach where passers-by are subjected to a non-stop stream of verbal inducements/harrassment to occupy one of the endless rows of tables, under the big screen TVs. This is not my idea of dining ambience so for the rest of the trip we avoided this like the plague.

    The Golden Spoon's serves Turkish food but you can get most foods here from burgers to Beijing Duck to Full English Breakfast.

    Favorite Dish: The starter Turkish Meze Plate, served with freshly baked flatbread was a very tasty introduction to Turkish cuisine.

    Seaside: mixed

    exterior

    Tried this place twice.
    First time we were very happy with our lunch.
    When we went back for dinner the service was not so good, and the owner (or was it the owner's wife/girlfriend) sat at the next table to smoke and have a coffee. We had to ask her to b....r off.
    Not a good start to a meal...

    Favorite Dish: Chicken shish

    the outside

    A small place set back from the beach about 50m, with just 6 tables.

    We used it 3 times in 7 days - definitely a favourite.

    Staff are friendly and efficient.

    No written menu in the evening - you choose from what's there. Good fish and meze.

    Favorite Dish: One of the meze - fried aubergine with tomato. Or was it the heydari? Mmm...

    Özer’s Place: top quality

    by iaint Written Aug 13, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The owner is very "hands on". He explains what's on the menu and takes your orders (no written menu - you get taken into the kitchen to be shown what is on offer).

    We ate there 3-4 times in 7 days, and everything we ate was super. My friend ordered wild sea bream one night (usually its farmed) and loved it. Next night she had a huge red mullet - same story!

    One secret - on our last visit we saw the owner's brother (one of the waiters) emerge from the water 20m away, clad in snorkel, face mask and flippers and clutching a basket trap of fresh fish! He handed the contents to his brother, and went back in to replace the trap.

    How fresh can you get!

    Favorite Dish: Tough question! It was always good. Probably the köfte - sounds banal, but it was exceptional.

  • The Blue Moon: Don't miss the Flame Fried food

    by KittyKat1 Written Aug 24, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oh my god the food is to die for. No matter what you eat in this restaurant you always get served such good quality of food. The portions are just perfect, and served always with a smile. The waiters, Brain, Tommy (Manager) and Morat are such nice people. Where would you get a place that people who work there just make you any kind of cocktail you like - or indeed invent one for when you are finished your dinner.

    It was my birthday and in 20 minutes they whipped up a treat for me - fireworks and everything.

    Every night at 10 the lads get up to do a little dance to some songs - it helps them if we all get up with them1

    I chose the Meatballs on the first night - just perfect texture - not too dry and served with a nice quantity of chips and large salad.

    I chose Flame fried Chicken on another occassion - like a Turkish version of Chicken Supreme but without much of the sauce. Very very very tasty - you would ask for a second helping if you were greedy!!!!

    My boyfirend tried Burittos (Mexican) quite nice but not as nice as their local dishes it had to be said.

    Favorite Dish: I have to say my favourite dish was the Chef's Special which was Flame Fried Sea Bass. All I can say is WOW - it was beautiful. You need to like fish though as Sea Bass is quite strong tasting fish. it was served in breadcrumbs (light) with fried mushrooms and onions in a nice light cream/wine sauce. On the side you get a baked potato, rice and some veg.

    Absolutely a must try.
