Where the locals go for lunch...
Try the meatballs they are very tasty...
You can try the home made other dishes...
One of my favorites in Bodrum.
Very reasonable prices
Favorite Dish: Meat Balls... (In Turkish sish kofte)
I am a local of Bodrum & there are only a few restaurants serving real Aegean Cusine which is based on green vegetables. Try this restaurant because it is not a touristic place and they have different menus for everyday.
Try to taste everything. Great food...Reasonable prices ... Small restaurant
Favorite Dish: Try to taste almost everything.
Cipohorta, Kolicita, Marul Yemegi, Kuzu Etli Arap Saçi , Kenker
Kokorec ( cocoreich) has nothing to do with cockroach !!!! although the spelling looks pretty similar..Kokorec is a local fast food and it consists of lamb tripe cook in BBQ
Sampiyon is one of the famous Kokorec makers and they have recently open a branch in Bodrum...You have to try it ...
Favorite Dish: Kokorec
The food was spectacular here although it was very quiet in resort at time of visit so dont know how it will be when staff are trying to cook for large amounts of people.
Catering for all tastes with world cuisine, (one of the best onion bhajies i have tasted ever)
The waiters had little to do so came to table and spoke with us while we wated for food told us how local people would eat and how it differs from area to area, which we found interesting instead of the usual where you from where you stay when you go home.
And as our hotel balcony overlooked the restraunt the staff shouted greetings to us every day after our visit
Favorite Dish: we had pitza, chicken bhuna and chicken princess at our table and could not fault any of the food
THIS PLACE IS SO FRIENDLY AND THE OWNERS IBRAHIM AND SUE ARE LOVELY
THE FOOD IS GREAT - TRADITIONAL TURKISH OR ENGLISH - OR EVEN INDIAN CURRY !!
THE KIDS UNDER 5 EAT FREE
THE BEER MUST BE THE CHEAPEST IN THE VILLAGE
IT IS A VERY OLD BUILDING WITH THE ORIGINAL OLIVE PRESS INSIDE
Favorite Dish: TURKISH PANCAKES ( gozleme ) casseroles - stir fry -- salt fish and too much to mention
La Jolla Bistro is quite a small restaurant on Neyzen Tevfik Caddesi, fairly near to the Marina. It has a very trendy interior and seating outside too if you would prefer. The food is excellent and this is a very popular restaurant - they serve traditional food, Turkish and others and a range of seafood. They also have sushi if you like that sort of thing - I don't!
The restaurant is in a really nice place with great views of the bay and castle (tree blockage permitting) at the front and it is handily placed for visiting other bars after your meal is finished. It is open for lunch too!
Price is very good in the slowly rising market in Bodrum and a meal for two here is a great bargain (about 70YTL not including wine).
Favorite Dish: Salads are filling and tasty
This Irish/Turkish restaurant is a jewel in an otherwise fast food crown in Gumbet. It serves top quality food but the downside is that you do pay for the pleasure - it is fairly expensive compared with the other food options available locally. It is managed by the wife of a local dignitary (the same family run Murphy's Bar opposite the restaurant). The restaurant is spotless and spacious - it is very popular (especially with Irish people on holiday!) and on one visit we had to wait to be seated but the food made this OK (and we would wait at home for a good restaurant). The ambience is quite unlike other Turkish restaurants and it does have a European feel to it. The waiter service is excellent and shows they have been well trained.
The food itself is exceptionally good quality and so tasty - their potatoes are to die for!! The portions are large and filling (except the previously mentioned potatoes that are so moorish you will want more of them!). Side orders and starters are lovely and the time between courses is just right to allow th efood to go down without you getting bloated. There is an extensive wine menu and the usual Efes to accompany your meal. The meal is not cheap by Turkish standards but is worth every Kurus!
This restaurant is actually one of my favourite bars in the evening time but during the day it is a lovely relaxing place to go for a bite of lunch. There are a small number of tables at the rear of the restaurant that overlook the sea and the views are spectacular - sea all around and the castle to one side. The restaurant is clean and the service is friendly and prompt. The menu is not extensive but the food served is good quality using local ingredients. The usual suspects of pizza, chips, sandwiches and burgers are available but there are also some local dishes on offer. The food we ate there on a few visits was lovely (if a little small in portion size). The views and calm environment make this a lovely place to get out of the hustle of Bodrum during an afternoon of shopping!
We have just come back from Bodrum and yet again Demeters didnt dissappoint us.The garden area is really pleasant and relaxing.Curly,s a really nice guy and the staff are very polite and friendly.
The menu is brilliant,its so vast you have to keep going back to try everything.We never had one bad meal.
Favorite Dish: My favourite dishes was the chicken,mushroom and garlic it was so tasty,and spag bol!My son Christopher loved the chicken casserole i could,nt believe he ate it all.And the steaks are wonderfull to
When you see it, it looks so pretty and inviting. But when you get in, it’s a different story. The menu is basic and lacks imagination. But you are already there and seated, so you have to pick something. I chose the chicken wings for starters. What came out were 4 wings, snow white, no marinade or dressing. They looked like they had been dipped in hot water for 2 minutes and then left to cool. All cold and grizzly with 1 lettuce leaf. I wouldn’t even give it to my dog. We paid for our starters and left.
The staff were very insulting and abrupt to us and we also saw a full scale argument going on with some other diners. Our meal was cold and horrible and inedible. We waited forever to get out bill and were hovered over to pay. It was almost as if they were used to people walking off without paying. Needless to say we did not leave a tip.
I and my friends dined at this restaurant,on the sea front in Bodrum-we were overcharged for the four-steak meal we had.The bill came to 285 TURKISH lira which equated to £112.When we went to complain the owner reckoned he did not speak English-he had earlier pointed me to the toilet in english and told me to mind my head!!!!!!!!!!!!!.We caused a stir by photogrphing the receipt before we paid up.WE JUST WANT TO WARN OTHER ENGLISH HOLIDAYMAKERS about this restaurant,as this is not the norm-we know because we travel to Turkey 2-3 times a year.We will not go to Bodrum again.
Golden Plate is a cheap and cheerful restaurant on the seafront in Bodrum, specialising in traditional favourites (with obligatory chips!) and with a lively and attentive staff.
The restaurant is family owned and run and has been a feature of Bodrum's seafront for many years. There are tables inoors but many more outside with delightful sea views during the day. The menu is not adventurous but the food is cooked well and quickly, served with a flourish. Tables are cleared quickly and staff are on hand to chat and entertain with singing and dancing (trying to compete with the nearby bars). The waiters do stand atthe front of the restaurant to try and entice you inside but you are under no obligation to read the menu - the place is always busy in the evening and has a steady trade during the day. Great place to stop off for a snack before you drink (it is on bar street after all!).
Casa Del Sol is totally fantastic.Its a new restaurant on Bar street owned by Chic and Oz and they really make you feel welcome.The food is great with everything from omelettes and pasta,to fresh fish and turkish dishes.We never had one bad meal there and its a reasonable price
Favorite Dish: as we ate there so many times i couldnt say which meal i prefered because they were all perfect..sorry
One can tell the good resturants if it is the only one with que in a strip of other resturants that are basicly empty. And that would be the Golden Plate on the Sea front Corniche in Bodrum. They have a location that is twice as big as the surrounding places and they are still always packed. One reason I found is that beyond the extensive 20 plus page menu, excellent food, large portions, childrens entertainment area, live entertainment, they do not have the turkish dinner scam. While dining out several times at other places in Bodrum we fell for the "special" that the waiter offered and it turned out to be 10 times the price of anything else on the menu. One night 3 of us spent over 200 euro on 1 sea bass, some fava, tzaiki, pita, rice, and 3 soft drinks.
So one afternoon when I was tired and hungry, the travel guy from Morning Tours walked me to the Golden Plate and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
they really look after you and have a great beach club as well as an evening boat cruise and a travel service!
Favorite Dish: They have excellent Turkish fare as well as more familiar items from "home" however, I personally am not familiar with chips and beans, one customer was delighted. the jacket potatoes were scrumptous and huge and I could have eaten the Doner everyday. They even had Fajitas!
