it was so hot, 30*, that sitting inside this air-conditioned restaurant was heaven. the patio looked fairly attractive, however we were quite happy inside. it was also great in that there were doors and no feral cats could wander around while we ate, a common occurrence in turkey that I never got used to. I had delicious thai green curry... More

This was such a welcome surprise during our trip in Turkey. Although we are big believers in eating local food after a few weeks of local cuisine in Greece and Turkey we were over the moon to experience London quality food. We were really spoilt with the service, the wine was excellent and the chef came out to discuss the... More

We went there 3 times because we all enjoyed the food so much. We are not that easy to please either, all of us have or do work in the restaurant industry so can be quite critical. However this place met all our expectations and more! I particularly enjoyed the chicken Thai curry, followed by Baklava. My daughters had pastas... More

We went to the Vanilla Lounge on the strength of the reviews we had read. We were not disappointed. The meal was really outstanding and the service perfect. The slow cooked beef ribs were really perfect. The only criticism I could make was that the ice creams were not home made but Movenpick, which I could buy off the street.... More

I felt a bit guilty not eating at a Turkish restaurant, but Lonely Planet said it was one of the top restaurants in Antalya and they did NOT lie. The three of us came close to licking our plates. I would love to have the recipe for the eggplant and green onion risotto!

We(party of 4) dined inside by choice - it was a hot and humid evening. The greeting was v friendly and the staff were attentive and professional at all times. The menu is excellent and slightly unusual(for Turkey) but the dishes were beautifully cooked and our whole party thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The atmosphere was just right; no loud music,...
