If you are in Alacati for a few days, one of your pit stops should be here. A very enjoyable meal. It wasn't too expensive and was very well presented.

A good looking menu packed with local dishes and seafood in a fishing village is an excellent start. However overall it failed to live up to expectations: - Starters weren't too bad, beets with cinnamon were tasty but not inspiring, beans with citrus peel were the best. - For mains we went with fish, a salmon fillet with a carrot...

As frequent visitor to Alacati, tried Barbun on June 29 th. The menu was varied and looked interesting. Once we ordered, we received "taster bites" or "amuse-bouche" that was told to be complimentary. It was ordinary taste provided with a great flair of pretentiousness. Then, the main courses arrived. They tasted better than the earlier tasters. We ordered 2 appetizers... More

My family and I are in Alacati on vacation, and we decided to eat at Barbun for dinner this evening. We were extremely hopeful about this restaurant, and left with a bad taste in our mouths, both figuratively and literally. We sat down outside and because it was a chilly evening, they brought us blankets (this was the only positive,... More

This is a great looking little place on one of the pretty side streets in the centre of town. Trendy yet cosy, it has a handful of indoor tables & a couple or so street side. It is open fronted & the modern kitchen is exposed for you to see the small team of young but serious chef types beavering... More

We just had a delicious meal at Barbun. On a quiet side street off the square. Well appointed and really excellent food. A light and modern take on Turkish food, beautifully cooked and presented. One of the best restaurants of our four day stay here.

We walked passed Barbun in Alaçati's towns center and it looked so nice, what a beautiful venue! The bread was very good and the olive oil with herbs was good too, but than our experience changed... We ordered the sardines & the artichoke as an apetizer and both these dishes were not so great. The artichoke was supposed to be... More

This is such a great restaurant. Great food, great wine, and they leave you alone to enjoy a night out. You never feel rushed at this place. I have sat at this restaurant for an hour after I declined dessert and coffee and the waiter did not come around twice. Even though it is on a street, and your table... More
