We had dinner at The Vanilla Restaurant – located in the Old Town (Kaleiçi) district of Antalya – and had a marvelous meal. This is not a traditional Turkish restaurant. It has, rather, an interesting and varied international menu selection. We were very, very pleased. Appetizers: Vegetable Spring Rolls; Dynamite Prawns (WOW!). Main Courses: Pan-roasted Chicken Breast & Drumstick on... More

There is nothing more that I could elaborate on that has not already been said by previous reviewers. The Vanilla, is without doubt, head and shoulders above any other restaurant in the city of Antalya in every aspect. I would go as far to say that it is comparable with a Michelin 2 star restaurant in the UK or France.... More

Whether dining inside or outside you will find a great section of wine and cheese (our favorite combination) :) as well as great food. We visited Vanilla several times both in July and October and highly recommend it. 😊 Jarred & Nady
