As the name says, the staff of this restaurant was really friendly! In general, food in most of the restaurants in Turgutreis was good, but it was the staff in this restaurant that made us come back again, and again...
Favorite Dish: Chicken shish kebab, is a traditional dish. It was very good! I reccomend it!
This is another restaurant with very friendly staff and good food.
Favorite Dish: I ate pizza in this restaurant, and it was great. It was “Hasan’s special pizza” or something like that… It was a pizza with chicken, never tried it before, but it was good.
Another place, which is good for people watching, is Karadenis pizza and pide saloun. It is a busy place in the evening and it is situated by a small square just where the shopping street going east along East Bay begins.
They have different kebabs and pide, pizza and spaghetti. As
I had been eating kebabs for several weeks and no pasta
I ordered spaghetti with a cheese and mushroom sauce. It turned out they didn’t have that sauce (but they didn’t tell me) but they served me one with ham instead, without asking.
I did not want to have ham so they quickly made me a delicious tomato sauce instead.
The pasta and a beer, plus service tax (it was the first and only restaurant I ate at in Turkey that added extra service tax to the bill), was 10 500 000 TL.
This restaurant was the worst experience on the whole holiday. We waited more than hour for the food, and when we finally got it, it was so not good (I don’t want to use another bad word) that we left almost immediately.
The staff are very "friendly" here (no pun intended!) but they really were. The service and the food was excellent and its another restaurant in Turgutreis that i would recommend.
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish was some meat which was wrapped up in cheese something else. I'll have to find out what the dish was called. :-)
Cheap and cheerful - opposite the marina. Best Pizza and meeting point of the town. It is always crowded with locals and the sailing crowd. If you venture on to the roof terrace there are tremendous views over the Harbour towards the castle. The personality of the place reflects the local well-known owner.
Favorite Dish: Try 'Çökertme', that's thin sliced meat on a layer of very fine grated chips with yoghurt.
Now in its 6th year, has one of the best reputations in town and are to be found down a small street opposite the Marina. The tasty food prepared by the English owner\chef, Helen, is Mediterannean.
Favorite Dish: The sort of dishes you are likely to find are frogs legs in garlic, moules marinieres, grilled goat's cheese with tapenade, lamb with garlic, chicken with wild mushroom risotto, baked sea bass followed by their famous chocolate nemesis, creme brullee or rose icecream. The comfortable chairs in the romantic garden allowing you to sit for hours enjoying every last morsel down to the home made chocolate truffles.
Down by the harbour there are several cafes where it is nice to sit in the afternoon to watch people and have a tea, or something else to drink.
Tea and freshly pressed orange juice: 5 000 000 TL
Coca-cola: 2 500 000 TL
Ice-cream: 4 000 000 TL
A cute and little restaurant with a great Turkish cousine and the best cook I've ever met. You can both read your book and chat with the other guests as they sit so close to your table. The stuff and the owner are very cute, lovely people.
Favorite Dish: Lentils, Turkish Sarma, Potatoes Salad, Borek
its not a restraunt of course..
just a boat that you can take a daily boat trip by it..But its captain Hasan & Ahmet, invites you a night party, if you bring your food..drinks are from them :))))))).. ask for these 2 captains...
Favorite Dish: menemen made by eggs
It is owned by a Dutch lady who has high standards and loves to entertain her guests with renditions on her flute. Also art exhibitions are added to your enjoyment. It is a quiet civilized place in old town Bodrum that serves traditional Aegean cuisine. The lamb is to die for.
Favorite Dish: lamb lamb lamb:)
I tried its speciality last year. One of my colleagues recommended me that restaurant and its magic meal. Its antique view inside and lovely design outside give you the peace of a beautiful port environment.
Favorite Dish: Liman Koftesi-Speciality of the restaurant.
Meatballs served with tomato sauce, yoghurt and butter. Healthy and delicious way for a good start to evening...
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!).
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!
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!
