Friendly and very tasty

The reviews are not lying. The staff was very serviceminded and though we were there "off season" and asked for a beer they did not carry, they went and got it from a convinience store and did everything they could to make our experience perfect.

As it was our first visit to Side, we didn't really know what to expect so put our faith in Tripadvisor reviews to help us find the best food. Unfortunately, this restaurant did not live up to expectations. We started with a complimentary tray of bread with cold mezze and various dips. The portion size was good but the bread... More

My wife and I visited Gul restaurant recently following its reviews on Trip Advisor. We tried to find it in August but failed and so tried again. We are so pleased we did. Its easy to walk past the place and is on the first floor, so keep your eyes peeled. Service was excellent with both the owner and the... More

We visited the Gul last week and had a lovely meal. The gratis starter of bread and dips were the best we had all week. I had the lamb shank which was so tender cooked in peppers and onions, the other half had fish which was delicious. The kids had a pizza and chicken skewer both they loved. The portions... More

Best meal all week... Places like Side have a tendency to produce "tourist"-food instead of local flavours. We asked the guy to give us something with the local flavours and all 6 adults left with a full belly and a wide smile. The service was really nice and only added extra to the whole experience.

Generally, eating out in Antike Side is more expensive, a combination of tourist destination, views and VERY high rates that the establishments have to pay. However, there are still some excellent, good value restaurants around and Gul is one of them. We had an excellent meze for 2 with balloon bread followed by main courses Plank Fish and Mixed Grill.... More

We visited this restaurant for drinks one afternoon. There was no hassle to dine here which is a plus point in our books. We were greeted by a very friendly gentleman and led to the roof terrace which has views of the sea and is partly covered by grapevines. We had drinks and ice cream and then were given a... More

Loved it here. The food was brilliant. The mezze was the best we had had all week Jamie had fish and I had a lamb shank. We could not fault the service, the food. The waiter was respectful, no pushiness to buy more. Absolutely recommend the Gul. Very much worth the visit Thank you

Service was excellent and food good, the meze they give you is very good unless you have a large appetite this would be suffice. The location of this restaurant is on a rooftop and the directions are as follows. From the top of the main road, where the taxi rank is located, head towards the harbour, go past the carpet...

First ate here in June and decided to return after a great experience. We weren't disappointed and highly recommend. The food is of a very high standard and great value.We had a table with a street and sea view. The restaurant is well worth tracking down and not hard to find. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive.... More
