Fantastic food and drink

This place is just out of the centre so you're unlikely to just walk past but it's definitely worth visiting. They serve fantastic cocktails and the food was lovely. Would have come back again if we had time. There's a pool table too which is always fun!

We had the pleasure of staying at the hotel joined to this restaurant and so were lucky enough to eat here on a daily basis for just over two weeks. Each and every meal from breakfast, lunch, evening meal or simply a snack was delicious. All food is extreme well presented, is freshly prepared, delicious and very reasonably priced as... More

Found on Trip Adviser - this place should be Number 1! Nihat is a lovely guy, very polite and even picked us up from our villa. Lovely atmosphere and great food. Even catered for our fussy little one cooking to order exactly what he wanted. Reasonable prices - we tried some restaurants that were rated higher and apart from one,... More

When we're in the area we always head over to the Mercan Restaurant to see Nihat and his team, who always produce stunning meals, that not only look good, but taste good as well. The tables are also very well presented and just add to experience. It is located at the Hotel Cennet, just off the roundabout at the bottom... More

The food at the Mercan is amazing and the best in Ovacik. Well presented and served up by the owner Nihat or his Head Waiter Adem. Very friendly atmosphere and welcome you get from owners Nihat and Serpil. Food is available all day long from a very hearty full english or turkish breakfast to lunch time nibbles and snacks and...
