Fuat Sertkaya Restaurant in Antalya - Turkey

Fuat Sertkaya Restaurant in Antalya

Fuat Sertkaya Restaurant in Antalya: Restaurant overlooking the harbour

Fuat Sertkaya Restaurant is one of the popular restaurants at the Old City & Marina Bazaar in central Antalya. The restaurant caters mostly to large tourist groups. The restaurant was over-crowded when we were there. All the tables and chairs were occupied by large tourist groups enjoying their meals. The restaurant has amazing view over the harbour if you sit near the edge of the hill. The service was a little bit slow. We had to wait quite some time for our meal. It is understandable due to the large crowd during the busy lunch hours.

Nevertheless the fresh cold salads with local bread (as depicted on our third photograph) was quite delicious. The main course was the fresh grilled trout with more fresh salads and slice of lemon (depicted on our fourth photographj). The grilled trout was quite delicious and we were satisfied with the food. However we were a little bit disappointed that no dessert was included in our menu.

Menu list of Avcan Restaurant in Konya - Turkey

Menu list of Avcan Restaurant in Konya

Restaurant Avcan in Konya: Semi Turkish buffet lunch cum pizzas

This impressive restaurant & cafe is located inside Avcan Petrol service station along one of the main streets in Konya. We usually had just set lunch in restaurants in other cities over the period of our one week's holiday in Turkey. This superb Turkish buffet lunch is an exception. The food was really exceptional! There are superb bean soup (our second photograph), delicious cold assorted beans, fresh salads with delicious mushrooms (our last photograph), lots of choices for the main course and impressive dessert, and eat all you can to your heart content. This Turkish buffet lunch is different in contrast to those of the international buffet dinner we had in international hotels every evening.

While in the midst of having our buffet lunch, came the longest warm uncut pizzas that we had ever seen from the restaurant kitchen (as depicted on our fourth photograph). It was certainly a complete surprise to us! Our tourist guide did not tell us that warm pizzas were included in the buffet lunch. Some of our group members could not finish the pizzas as they had already eaten enough buffet lunch. These pizzas were really good - some of the best pizzas we had ever eaten in Europe!

Address: Candan Sokak 2 - 26, Meram, Konya

Aydede Cafe & Restaurant in Cappadocia - Turkey

Aydede Cafe & Restaurant in Cappadocia

Aydede Cafe & Restaurant in Cappadocia: Pottery kebab for lunch

We understand that Aydede Cafe & Restaurant caters mainly to tourist groups. When we were there groups of other tourists from different countries can be seen dinning in the restaurant at the same time. Nevertheless this was the first time we had ever tasted pottery kebab. The waiters will break the top of the clay pot with a little hammer to spill out the cooked kebab in front of the guests as depicted on our second photograph.

Our third photograph depicts the delicious bean soup as far as we can remember its taste. The pottery kebab is depicted on our fourth photograph. This pottery kebab is actually quite tasty as we had never tasted it before in contrast with the normal traditional kebab which is available everywhere in Europe. Our last photograph depicts a small portion of Turkish dessert which is quite extraordinary. This set lunch was taken on 30th November, 2015 in Cappadocia.

Culture Museum Restaurant in Cappadocia - Turkey

Culture Museum Restaurant in Cappadocia

Culture Museum Restaurant in Cappadocia: Unique restaurant with historic atmosphere

Culture Museum Restaurant is located inside the historic Culture Museum which is the former Town Hall in the heart of Ortahisar. The restaurant has beautiful stone arched rooms (depicted on our second photograph) which certainly have historic atmosphere. The food in the restaurant is certainly excellent it has to be said.

We began with delicious local Cappadokian soup (as depicted on our third photograph) which was followed by the Turkish starter meze (depicted on our fourth photograph). The main course depicted on our last photograph consisted of superb fried chickens with pastas, fresh salads and beans.

We certainly enjoyed this meal very much which we considered one of the best set lunch we had from our one week's vacation in Turkey. We had this set lunch on our birthday i.e. 29th November, 2015.

Hatipoglu Restaurant & Cafe in Ankara - Turkey

Hatipoglu Restaurant & Cafe in Ankara

Hatipoglu Restaurant & Cafe in Ankara: Set lunch at old mansion

Hatipoglu Konagi Restaurant & Cafe is located on a hill top inside an old mansion renovated into a restaurant. It has a very nice atmosphere inside with friendly service. The view from the restaurant over the surrounding area and the skyline of Ankara is truly amazing! The only disadvantage of this restaurant is that diners must climb up the steep stairs to reach the main entrance to the restaurant on top of the hill.

Nevertheless food in the restaurant was first class. We had delicious bean soup (as depicted on our second photograph) in the beginning, followed by the equally delicious Turkish starter meze (our third photograph). The main course as depicted on our fourth photograph consisted of rice, chicken, aubergine, beans and potatoes which were superb. We had very tempting Turkish dessert which was the last dish (our last photograph).

We certainly enjoyed this meal very much. Price of this impressive set lunch was approximately €10.00 per adult. As usual drinks and tips were not included in the price. You may also e-mail to the following address for more information:- info@hatipoglukonagi.com

Grup Saray Restaurant in Istanbul: Delicious set lunch

This was the first of our six set lunch on our one week's vacation in Turkey (Istanbul - Ankara - Cappadocia - Antalya) from 26th November, 2015 to 3rd December, 2015. We had this delicious set lunch at Sultanahmet Square near the famous Blue Mosque on the 2nd day, i.e. on 27th November, 2015.

The soup was really delicious (as depicted on our second photograph). It came with fresh salads. The main course has several ingredients (depicted on our third photograph) including rice, fried chicken, beef, assorted beans and fried springroll. Finally the delicious although a little sweet dessert is depicted on our fourth photograph. It is quite normal in Turkey as Turkish desserts are sweet!

This set lunch costs just €10.00 per adult not including drinks and tips. There are souvenir stores right inside the restaurant. The service was impeccable it has to be said!

Excellent seafood - Turkey

Excellent seafood

Can't remember the name of the restaurant: Superb seafood restaurant in Istanbul

We cannot remember the name of this wonderful Turkish seafood restaurant. It is located on a lane off the left hand side of Istiklal Cadessi towards Taksim Square approximately half way between Galata Tower and Taksim Square. The restaurant is one of the numerous seafood restaurants located along the lane packed with local and foreign tourists especially in the evening. They served excellent and delicious small dish appetizers.

You pick your live fish from the aquarium from shops opposite the restaurant. You can also choose other fresh seafood chilled with ice displayed outside the shops such as the mouth-watering octopus, oysters, crabs, king prawns and lobsters. The rest will be taken care of by the restaurant and they will cook the seafood of your choice in less than half an hour.

The waiters are very friendly and the services are impeccable it has to be said. The restaurant is fully air-conditioned. They gave us the restaurant's name card and a bill for the food. Unfortunately we have lost them. If you can recognise the restaurant from our photographs above, please let us know the name of the restaurant so that we can update the page!


Favorite Dish: Delicious Turkish cooking of fish of your choice from the aquarium. Small dish appetizers, fried octopus, fried prawns and fresh oysters can be recommended.
