“Excellent Dinner Last Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We are staying on our motortacht in Kas Marina for the second time this summer. While we had enjoyed coffee and fresh orange juice at the bistro we had not eaten there until last night. We very much enjoyed the meal and the restaurant. They welcomed us warmly as well as our small dog who has travelled with us all the way on our sailing adventure from California. We have lived for the past year in France and our expectations regarding restaurants and the meals they serve are high.
We shared a starter of roasted red bell pepper and cheese that was served with bread and a very tasty tapenade. It was delicious. We both had the Persian lamb with morels and enjoyed it very much. It was served with rice and mashed eggplant and both were good. Although we usually drink red wine with lamb, we had a bottle of Serafin chardonnay that was wonderful! We shared a dessert of baklava topped with vanilla ice cream and some white "cotton candy". My husband has the sweet tooth in our family but I had to agree that the dessert was very, very good. They offered us complimentary coffee or tea after after dinner. We had no problem with the timing of our meal. Our wait person did have limited English but it in no way affected the quality of our evening nor do I hold the expectation when I am in a non English speaking country that everyone speak it. We plan to be here several weeks and will definitely return.

“Vati is a classy and ''must go'' restaurant in Kas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

the ambiance of the new restaurant of Kas , Vati took us just as we entered the hallway of it.The view is perfect especially after 8 o'clock with the lights of the marina.We ordered mezes of every kind and we rate the taste and presentation 5 stars.The real success of this starter meal is in the hands of Zeynep , very sympathetic wife of Osman the owner of restau.You should definitely try the green beans in olive.The main course was also ok.We were so full at the end of the night that i could barely move from my seat.So the menu was adequate.If you dont want to eat in the hassle and noisy crowd of the Kas center and want a place full of serenity and chic service with the same prices.Vati is the place for you!

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

It is a new restaurant in Kas at the new harbour. The panaroma and the ambiance is beautiful and it is a very quiet location. The menu is quite different then other restaurants in Turkey. I ate there several times different dishes there, all was very fresh and delicious including the desserts. If you can't decide which dish to choode, ask the owners about their recomendations. Especially Vati Borek is a must. This restaurant is probably one of the best restaurants in South of Turkey. At the first glance it looks like a very expensive retsaurant, but the prices are mostly not higher then any other restaurants in the city. ....and check the toilets! 5 star business hotels don't have such nice toilets ))
