This is not a place for families. Dirty dishes and glasses. Personel and manager is really rude against customers. I believe there are better options around.

They have a nice stone chimney (Somine in turkish) in the center of the room. It is not the cheapest restaurant in town but definitely one to try. The specialty of the restaurant is clay pot cooking so try the Kiremits or even the Testi Kebab (not your usual Kebap, more sophisticated)

We enjoyed our meal at Somine. We were there off-peak and the restaurant was relatively empty. They had a large outdoor area which you could see would be quite crowded in the peak summer season. I think it would be quite a different experience. We also ate in Ziggy's and Han Ciragan and I think the others had slightly better... More

Food was very tasty, very reasonable, and tasted just like Turkish home cooking (not that I know what that actually tastes like, but I imagine Somine to come close!)

One of my favorite meals in Turkey! Amazingly nice staff as well. We had wine of the region, a few mezze to start, and a chicken dish to share. We topped the meal off with a baked fig desert that was as spectacular as the rest of the meal. At the end of the meal the owner of the restaurant... More

In a cold night, we had a nice dinner next to fireplace. It was a delightfull night with a nice&cheap wine, traditional food and warming fireplace. Service was very good also. They were so hospitable and we had a nice evening thanks to them also.

Visited Somine this evening and my wife and I were delighted with the standard of cuisine, the service, wine, the attentive timing & the prices. Well worth a visit

This was a very pleasant dining experience. The restaurant is located right at the center of town, on the second floor of a shopping center. Although a lot of people were eating outside on the terrace, we opted to sit inside, as the evening was a bit chilly for me. The dining room was very nice, surprisingly upscale. Service was... More
