Our tour guide took our small group here for lunch. We just loved the food. Whoever thought meatballs could be so good? Wonderful eggplant dishes. Just delicious local food. A real treat and the best meal I had in Turkey, by far.

The food was reasonably priced and quite good!! There is no menu, so the waiter explained the selections to us. We weren't very hungry so we only ordered 1 main to share between us, with some yoghurt and desert. The waiters were very gracious and kind. They gave us the wifi password even without us asking. Meatball was delicious! They... More

This restaurant doesn't have a menu, you can choose the mezze, meat or meatball from their counter. They don't have many options but it is the advantage that they are focusing on meatballs and skewers, and they make really good one. It is one of the best meatball restaurant in Turkey I have tried. They have indoor and outdoor seating... More

A simple restaurant, but fantastic mezzes (try the local greens, or the beets, not to mention the yogurt!) which are served in such generous portions that you may not be hungry by the time your fresh cooked kofte are served with all of their accompaniments. But, the kofte are worth saving some room to enjoy!

This is not a fancy restaurant but you will receive good service and great food. Do not limit yourself with kofte and taste the appetizers that they have on the menu. Most importantly leave a place in your tummy for the dessert called "keskul". It is a dessert made from milk, crushed almond, sugar, rice flour and/or potato flour. Keskul... More

This small unassuming restaurant is such a treasure. They make the best kofte in Turkey. Another dish not to be missed is the Chicken skewers. Definitely worth travelling for. Great for lunch on market Saturday, but be warned, it does get busy. Can't wait for their new restaurant beside the old to open. Looks very impressive. Oh, and don't forget... More

This place was recommended to us by a very nice lady we met on the train. Her family owns it. Very good meatballs with salad and toasted bread, and we ordered some tzatziki to go along with. Very nice to relax and sit under the shady trees and watch the puppy and kittens play. Great service, they gave us a... More

C1 ( 2013.08.18 ) There was located in the middle of city. When we visited there, market was taking place in a field. So we were difficult to find there. There was not fancy restaurant, but food was good. We ate meatball, pudding and kebab. This food was good. Service, food was no faultless except atmosphere.

It is not a traditional taste of kofte( meatball) . I think lots of bread inside of the meat and nearly no fat. But normally kofte should include fat and this fat should be removed in the grill. I recommend to go Odemis Hursit or salih Usta in Kemeralti.

Nice open air restaurant. One of the waiting staff helped us to choose what we wanted from a variety of tasty salads (we went for the stuffed zucchini and the tomato salads, 7L each) and then a plate of their meatballs and some chicken shish kebab. Delicious food. Total bill with drinks was 40L.
