I went with a group of families. It was recommended for it,s quality food. Agree, food was good but for the others. My dish was delayed till every one has finished his meal, so I had to cancel my order as every body was leaving. Menu has no price !. Is this legal. Dishes are very expensive when you compare...

First of all this place is not cheap. However one of the best restaurant I ve ever been. Highly recommend u to taste kaburga and kuzu tava. And deserts are also great. Location is near the sea and best time to be there around sunset. Definitely worth it. Enjoy...

Their menu is an absolute example of Turkish cuisine. Kebabs, sides and everything are delicious. Prices are around 70 TRL per person without alcohol. They just serve wine as alcohol. But try rib cage and handmade ayran for a perfect finish to a day.

I have visited Tavaci Recep with a friend after reading the TripAdvisor Reviews. As someone else mentioned before you're getting the appetizers just as you sit down. And it's so much. We didn't know why anyone would order more. We did anyways after one of the waiters recommended some meals (mostly lamb). Afterwards you're getting dessert and çay, whether you... More

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere as it is open to the outdoors with lots of trees and plants. The food was delicious but there were almost no vegetarian options for my mother. They bring complementary appetizers and desserts. Would definitely recommend it!

The meat dishes in specific the lamb is a feast. Service is good and friendly and efficient. As long as you do not mind the odd smoker - because it is common in Mediterranean to smoke at the table in restaurants. But do not worry, the beer is good on tap or bottle and you will be to busy enjoying... More
