My girlfriend and I went to Vanilla looking for a higher end restaurant experience. We had the following: seafood risotto, coconut lemongrass pumpkin soup, we shared a vegetarian thin crust pizza, Movenpick ice cream (espresso, vanilla and maple walnut). The seafood risotto was to be a starter, the portion was a little bigger than expected which was a surprise for... More

Went there to have a quiet birthday dinner with some great food and was not dissapointed. The weather was nice enough to sit outside - there was live music and just enough other guest to liven the place up despite of low season. Starter - chicken liver, I could eat this every day for the rest of my life! We... More

Incredible food! On the more pricier side for eating out in Turkey, but this is well justified and cost us far less than eating at the equivalent type of restaurant back home in Australia. The British owner may be the only man brave enough to cook pork in Turkey, and we thank him for his courage and delicious bravery. Well... More

I have to agree with the previous review, the service here is great. The guy working here is very polite, gives excellent service and is not at all pushy like in most other restaurants. The food was between a 3.5 and a 4. we had a 3-course meal and some dishes were excellent, while others lacked a bit in flavour.... More

We were here in Vanilla Lounge Restaurant on Oct. 13, 2014. This fabulous bistro, which is located in Antalya's old city Kaleici, is the right place to eat, drink, and be merry. We found this place accidentally while circum-promenading while enjoying and capturing the unique perspectives of the old world. While passing by, this handsome server introduced the establishment to... More

During our stay in september 2014 in Kaleiçi, we visited this restaurant like we used to do in 2011, 2012 and 2013. We like the food of course, the atmosphere, the superb waiters, the friendly owners, the beautiful setting, ... everything for a beautiful romantic evening.

Had a great meal here, the pork belly starter was amazing, and the 72 hour lamb just fell off bone. Highly recommended.

Located in heart of Old Town Kaleici. International fine-dining menu was nice change to the mezze/Turkish that we'd been having for awhile at this point (some dishes on the menu: pork belly, thai chicken curry, steak). Nice outdoor seating; happy hour prices until 6pm, though weren't able to catch it. Had wine, so not sure how their cocktails are. We... More
