Loved it

We stopped here for a drink and wifi, the fresh lemonade was so good we ate there. Try the mushroom casserole as we'll.

We come here a lot when we're in Antalya. Mainly for a drink. Efes during the day, and the chilled Raki in the evenings. It is served in a glass (obviously), and the glass sits inside a metal container which has been filled with water and then frozen. Brilliant idea! We have eaten here and the food is good. Although...

This is superb, but I think they call it Cafe Lal, superb menu where you can eat adequately for about 5 pounds a head. Thats 2 mains, a salad, and fresh pressed orange juice. We ate there almost every day ! The menu is small, but everything on it is superb.

It's a very nice and peaceful place to have a drink or snack after a walk in the busy surroundings. Sevice is excellent and very kind! We returned there just because of the friendness. Prices are o.k.

This small cafe was perfect for comfort food but made all the more impressive by the excellent service. We had salad and garlic bread to start - both were good, then chicken kebab that came with salad and fries whilst my friend had fish. The OJ was excellent and the beer good as well - you cant go wrong with... More

We were there in the last week of September, it's a fabulous place to dine in, just in the heart of the old city. very warm welcoming, tasty food, love their "shisha", and its excellent value for your money. I'd love to back again and have my dinner there.

In spite of a downpour, we were dry outside at LAL Cafe because the server placed large umbrellas strategically over us! Food and beer was terrific. Price very reasonable, and owner (our server) most helpful. Good menu. My Tomato Soup rated a 4.5/5. My only 5 was in Holland! Garlic bread was exceptional. And location right at the center of...

We have been going to Antalya for a few years now and always stay in the Old Town. Usually pop in to the Lal for a drink and lunch. Family owned, with good service. Only drawback, is that it is down a very steep hill if you are coming from the Clock tower direction.
