Imren has three different locations. The original one is on the main street of the city of Cesme, about 200 meters up from the harbor. Another is actually along the coast and more difficult to find, perhaps 1 mile distant from its sister store. A third is about 7 miles back east toward Izmir in a village called Alacati. The... More

This is an old classic restaurant in Cesme, still very authentic in its traditional 'lokanta' style food: every single thing we tried was good, from vegs to the oven lamb, to shish kebab, a bottle of red for 45TL... But the dessert was a dream: a artichoke heart with cinnamon and hazelnuts, with cream and mint, super! I really recommend... More

This is one of the oldest restaurants in Cesme and it continues to offer excellent traditional Turkish food. The mezes (cold and warm) are displayed at the entrance and therefore easy to choose (the staff speaks basic English and can guide you on your choice). The service is prompt and efficient. Sitting in the cool open area is very nice... More

Such a nice restaurant. If you are interested in tasting the real local food, food made with olive oil and fresh local ingredients, food that keeps your heart happy and your stomach full, this is a good place to eat. Once again, it is a modest place. At the entrance area, you see all the food and you choose whichever... More

We are presently staying at the Cesme marina and have found the food at Imren restaurant quite nice and typically Turkish. The staff are friendly and service fast. Maybe a little too fast as there was little time between the first course and the main dishes. Prices were reasonable and plenty of reasons to return.

you can choose what you want to eat from the buffet, prices are normal not like the inflated Alacati restaurants where you pay unbelievable amounts for a bad quality
