“Best food in Side”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Just got back from Side for the 4th time in 5 years, and one of the highlights was finding this great new restaurant. Out of everywhere me and my wife ate this visit, or any of the other visits this is the best. The restaurant itself is very modern and clean looking with solid and comfortable furniture. They have a very appetising display of fresh fish as you enter the restaurant and a tasty looking meze selection in front of a big modern open kitchen. The staff are all very welcoming and attentive, constantly making sure your table is clean & tidy and water topped up. The food itself was always very fresh and piping hot and came in very generous portions. (we ate there 3 times in 1 week.) The steak is some of the best I've ever eaten. I'm not sure where it is sourced or how they prepare it but it was always tender, succulent and full of flavour. Although not the cheapest place to eat, with the excellent exchange rate a 2 person chateaubriand with starters and drinks cost just the equivalent of £60. If you're looking for somewhere special to eat in Side I'd make La Filika your first choice.

“A cut above the rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is a new restaurant, out of the seaside area of Side but well worth a visit. The décor is charming and the staff are friendly and attentive.
The restaurant has a well stocked cabinet of fish and you are invited to choose your fish to be cooked from it.
We decided not to have fish and chose a chateaubriand to share. Our meat was beautifully cooked and the presentation was excellent.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. La Filika may work out a little more expensive than its neighbours, depending on what you choose, but it is definitely worth that little extra expense.

“Brilliant new restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

This lovely restaurant in Side town specialises in fish, with a wide range of fresh fish, but also serves steaks, Mexican and Turkish options. I had fresh sea bass which was grilled and served simply with a small jacket potato and plenty of salad; my friend went for the chicken shish kebab which was a very generous helping, moist, tender and very flavoursome; it was beautifully presented with sculpted tomatoes and radish and also served with a good selection of salad. Add in the fact that they offer a pick up and drop off service and it makes a great night out. Will definitely be going back. It was also good to see several Turkish families eating in there, always a good sign.
