Relaxed atmosphere

Yelken cafe is a nice place to go if you just want a chilled out atmosphere and too watch the boats coming in while having a drink or light meal.

Called here for a late afternoon drink and was a bit underwhelmed by the staff and the atmosphere. Location is stunning and therefore disappointed with lack of charisma as I anticipated this would be a regular 'watering hole' on our way back to our holiday house.

Visited in June and September. The views are great and we had a really relaxing time when we popped in there for a fresh ing drink after a long walk. We didn't have an evening meal but the snacks we had were very tasty and filling. We will be paying another visit when we return to Turgutreis next year.

Lovely place to hang out and enjoy a drink with friends and family. The prices are perefectly acceptable for the location, the service is good, and the chips very nice - haven't eaten anything else here. The beer came in an ice cold glass and the beer itself was nearly frozen :o) hit the spot perfectly.

Title says it all, the food was very good, the staff was friendly and attentive. Sitting right on the bay is very peaceful and it's got a great angle to watch the sunset. We went back more than once. Can't miss this place if you visit Turgutreis.

Fantastic veiws of the Turgutreis harbour with matching quality Turkish breakfast - dozens of appetizing home made marmelades, salads, local olives and 'menemen! - turkish scrambled eggs'. Match it with fresh orange juice or excellent coffee or Turkish tea, this place is trully a gem to start your day! Owner Fuat, a charming character with vast local knowledge and Melike... More
