We discovered Beach House on the fourth trip to TCI that I've taken with my family in the past six years. Needless to say, we've been to a number of the island's best restaurants and have been rather impressed overall with the quality of the culinary scene. As self-described "foodies", finding a great place to eat is often the integral part of our vacation. I can say without a doubt that the Beach House is the island's absolute best restaurant, and one of the best we've encountered while traveling.
The atmosphere is classy without seeming stuffy, nicely-lit, and large but still intimate. The staff is attentive, earnest, and professional. Our drink experience was great, with a fun approach to cocktails (basically create-your-own with the help of a bartender) and an amazing special cocktail that was presented in a really interesting way. They have a superb wine list. The homemade bread (which one review called "stale"... an absolutely untrue assertion), rivaled anything I've tasted in New York or Europe, and the olive oil and balsamic reduction was to die for.
The real triumph here was the fusion of art and great food. Each dish (and even the cocktails) was presented in a sophisticated and inventive way. I had the special steak, which was presented on a wooden slab and marinated to perfection. The lobster gnocchi was delicious, and the beet salad (presented as a cool collection of goat-cheese stuffed beet "tubes") was fresh and perfectly dressed. The warm crab salad with mango might have been the best appetizer I've tasted in a long time. The surf and turf was better than any on the island (from the four or five I've tried...obviously a personal favorite!) and the veal had an exotic marinade that still makes my mouth water.
In all, we ate four of our seven dinners at Beach House, recognizing after trying a few different, less impressive options, that the experience there just couldn't be matched. I can not recommend it highly enough, it is an absolute must for anyone visiting Turks.
