Great for Turkish food

There are lots of restaurants in Bitez selling a mixture of cuisines, but The Black Cat specialises in Turkish food - they don't offer 'International' food options. The food is great. It's set back from the actual front, although if you get the right seats you still have a view of the sea, but... read more

The Black Cat is a hidden gem behind the shops & Mosque, hidden away from the 'main' restaurants. Ferhan & Sezan will do what they can to please your pallet 😊 We tried their Seabass which Ferhan skinned and boned in front of us, it was lovely. Try and save room for a dessert as they are absolutely gorgeous 😃... More

Ate here once during our two week visit to bitez. Good food and nice intimate atmosphere. Away from the beachfront which is a bonus as less hassle.

We popped into the Black Cat for lunch after seeing its recommendation in Lonely Planet and we were not disappointed. Efficient service, hospitable staff and lovely fresh food although slightly pricier than average. Quite a small place however as we were visiting at the end of the season, we had no trouble getting a seat. Worth a visit

Must say we ate in this twice at night and visited it during the day for a drink. Located behind the Mosque slightly off the beach. The food was good and reasonably priced. What I liked about here the staff wasn't hunting you into the restuarant so did you didn't feel harassed. We will deffo be back

didn't really live up to expectations for me! Yes food was ok but only what you could get at home from a kebab shop but probably tastier. Don't know why everybody raves about it and you need to book but all tastes and expectations are different
