Wonderful as always

Just a little gem of a restaurant, a street behind the beach front. Fantastic owner who recognised us from last year. We had a lovely meal, quick service and a good friendly experience. We shall return next year xxx

Having visited end this restaurant over a period of 12 years it is the one restaurant in Bitez where you definitely need to book from when it opens to when it shuts. That said you may just hit it on a day when you strike gold with no booking. The owner makes you feel so welcome and unlike most other... More

Set back from the beach on a corner. Traditional Turkish food. Ok but nothing special, eat at many restaurants twice but this wasn't one of them. Friendly owner and good service but the felt the portions were on the small size and just ok.

we finally got to eat in this lovely restaurant! They get booked up very fast but we managed to get a table on the day we were leaving at 5pm. We had the chicken breast which was beautiful. It came with garlic mayo, red cabbage, shredded lettuce, grated carrot and a choice of rice or chips. The chicken was perfectly... More

Having been away from Bitez for 7 years, my wife & I had to adapt to the numerous changes of restaurant ownership, names and staffing. Having arrived late on first day and as the Black Cat was near hotel plus had favourable ratings, we called in for a quick meal - chicken salad (me) and a simple kebab (wife) -... More

Set slightly back from the beach this is a small but charming local restaurant. The food is traditional Turkish done well. Very reasonably priced. We have eaten here before and never been disappointed the food is always excellent. The owner is helpful and welcoming. We will visit again.

Just off the front but with views of the sea. I had the manti which was ok but I've had better since. Service was fine.

This restaurant was just around the corner from our hotel so decided to have dinner there one night. We normally have a rule whilst on holidays never to eat at the same place twice - we broke the rule for The Black Cat. The food was delicious, the service excellent & a great host who liked to have a chat... More

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 it's location means it is a... 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
