Great food and friendly staff

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.

Stayed at the hotel attached and so had the luxury of eating here several times. The owners are fabulous, make you feel welcome and can't do enough for you. The food is great, we didn't have one bad meal. Steak was great quality and cooked blue as I requested and the mushroom sauce had so much flavour. Had a variety... More

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.

Stayed close by and decided to give it a try for breakfast. Food was all cooked fresh and delicious, the owners and their team very friendly. Needless to say, we went back several times for both breakfast and evening meals. No frozen chips here... Potatoes of your choice or fresh hand cut chips. Relaxed atmosphere, dining under those huge grapevines.... More

We ate at the Mercan several times during our holiday in July 2014. Every meal was excellent. We are a family of 4 and went for breakfast, lunch and dinner over the 10 days we were in Turkey. The waiter Adam was a lovely man, very attentive. We can highly recommend.
