I had a meal at the Mercan last year and it was the best meal of my holiday. I have often thought about that meal and how much I enjoyed it. So when we booked to stay in Ovacik this year I knew we had to go there. I was worried that it couldn't meet up to my expectations for... More

I took the whole family to this restaurant - a 50 year old, a 47 year old, two 26 year olds, a 23 year old, a 6 and a 3 year old. We all loved it. Really friendly staff, lovely location in the garden, great food and excellent presentation.

We often use the Mercan when staying in Ovacik. The staff are very friendly and courteous; the food very good and excellent value; the garden area is wonderfully relaxing and tranquil. I would definitely recommend the Mercan if you're staying in the Ovacik area.

We have been to the mercan many times over the last 6 years and have never been disappointed with the food and service. Nehat, his lovely wife and staff are always attentive and really look after you. This year Adam is working at the mercan who is friendly and always has a big smile. Hope to see them next year.

If you fancy trying a Turkish Pide (pizza), I would recommend going to Mercan! We have sampled a few from here over the years and they never disappoint! This time we had a cheese/tomato/mushroom and a cheese/tomato/onion, absolutely delicious. They were only 11TL each, fantastic value. Friendly staff too.
