As a well travelled and seasoned TA user I only choose the best restaurants to dine in. Ocakbasi is definitely a hot contender for my favourite restaurant in Turkey. Ok, Side is not my kind of holiday destination and may attract the less cultured holiday makers, but Ocakbasi compensated for my starvation of class. The ambience of the restaurant is... More

This Resturant have in my opinion the the best food and service in Side. And we would never found this resturant if it hadn't been for the good reviews here. but again that lead to higher expectations that they lived up to. We were super happy after testing this place and definitly have to go back to this excelent resturant

We were recommended this restaurant by a couple from our hotel, and are so glad we visited! The staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly so with helping us choose from the menu. We like to eat traditional food whenever we visit places, and we were not disappointed with the food here! The lamb shank was incredible, and the houmous... More

May not have experienced how good it was if not for the reviews as it's tucked away which actually adds to it's charm. We had mixed grill and mixed seafood, both perfectly portioned and more than enough to share and was beautiful food. Having enjoyed it so much we decided to have our last meal of the holiday there too.... More

We visit Side approximately 4 times a year and have been to most of the restaurants over the last 4 years sine buying an apartment there. If you are fortunate enough to visit Side you must eat at the Okacbasi. It is without doubt the best in Side consistently. There are many nice restaurants but some tend to be a... More

Visited last year and twice this week. By far the best quality food, great surroundings, attentive staff. Special mention to Murat and Ozam. Would recommend to anyone in Side, especially at the start of your holiday before you lose faith elsewhere!

We visited Ocakbasi on 26/6/2014 based on the reviews and we weren't disappointed. Ockabasi is a true gem off the main street in Side. Faultless service and the best food we ate in Turkey all set amongst the ancient ruins. Truly stunning, in a totally different league to any other restaurants in Side. For those looking to eat out this... More
