Not as good as last year. No fruit and too much cheese, even when we said my husband was allergic! Kept waiting along time and even though we were the only table in the restaurant we were ignored by the staff.

Had lunch here after exploring the ghost town. A lovely setting, great staff and the lovely puppy 'Sambuca'. The grilled chicken salad and homemade burgers were lovely.

The Mixed grill was huge and great value as was the Chicken... More

We stayed in Antonia cottage for 6 days bed and breakfast in August. Beautiful villa, spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast of your choice delivered to your balcony each morning. Food lovely. Stayed for the musical evening and the BBQ which were both excellent. The pool is lovely with comfy loungers. Staff are all friendly and attentive. Would definitely return

We are going to stay with Engin for 2 weeks on monday and we CANNOT wait. It is like coming home..... to family and friends. Hasan is the best chef, Robbie the best waiter, and Engin the best host anywhere in the Hisaronu/Fethiye area. Often immitated, never bettered. Counting the hours til we arrive.

We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday in Turkey. We have visited this area many times but this is our first visit to the Istanbul Restaurant in Kayakoy. In fact it was so good we revisited several times during our two weeks. Engin the owner was like a family friend, and was most attentive to all his restaurant guests.... More
