It was the best meal we had in Turkey, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. We will recommend Vanilla for anyone visiting Antalya.

Food was great along with service, would've been nice to have more variety on the menu. The meat was cooked well

We deliberately sought out this restaurant, having visited in previous years, & having done so returned five times during our ten day holiday. The food was absolutely exquisite; friendly staff, a superb choice of wines, & a wide selection of beautifully presented meals & deserts. Such a joy to dine here. We had looked everywhere for fish (minus skin, head... More

Good food in 'fine dining' style, poached pear dessert was excellent but I would say I've had better rib eye, artistic rather than filling vegetables. Nice atmosphere and good waiters but with the amount of good restaurants in the old town I wouldn't aim to go back, not the #1 in my view

Just the most fantastic meal ever. Clearly the Trip Advisor 'first place' had influenced our choice, but the fact that Vanilla was next door to our hotel certainly helped too! My smoked salmon starter was exquisite and the Thai soup was a very special interpretation of a classic. Chef Wayne then went the extra mile by returning to his home... More

Four in our group looking for lunch stopped in Vanilla. Menu is interesting with light dishes, pizzas and more European choices. I had the Thai noodle salad, the burger looked amazing and pizza was delicious too. Service was welcoming and attentive. Everyone enjoyed their orders, especially my Thai salad. Living in Turkey for a year now I was excited to... More

Absolutely exceptional - in five days in Antalya my friend and I ate here four times, and every meal was as good as the next. The staff are charming, the setting in Antalya Old Town is stunning, and the food is as good as we've eaten in top London restaurants. The restaurant is a family owned/run business, with the kitchen... More
