The Mercan did it again, we were welcomed like a member of the family, nothing was too much trouble. We don't know how they did it but the food was even better than last year and we didn't think that was possible, we thoroughly recommend it. Great food, good company and excellent service, what more... read more

Excellent food well presented. We live in Turkey and regularly meet up with friends during the summer season at this restaurant. Steaks are fab and nothing is too much trouble for the owner and staff.

just back from yet another stay at Cennet Hotel which is part of the Mercan Restaurant, although now the end of the season the standards are just as high as in summer. The meals we had during the day and the evenings are why we keep going back. The choice is endless and all cooked to order and presented to... More

A little off the roundabout down to Olu Deniz. this is definitely worth a visit. The waiters were excellent and the food was well presented and delicious. at first glance it looks like a bar but the food is way above a bar atmosphere. Meat balls in the oven and the lamachun were excellent. Pide - turkish pizza was delicious... More

We were recommended the Mercan by a friend who visits Turkey regularly. The staff were lovely, nothing too much trouble and the food was enjoyable. I would have liked to have seen the fresh dough (for puffy bread) covered up though as there were lots of flies about.
