Visited here with my family this summer. The food is absolutely brilliant - one of the best, if not the best in Hisaranu town. We had the fillet steak, chicken fajitas, liver and sea bass, all of which could not be faulted. It's not on the main strip which allowed us to have dinner in peace without the "boom boom"... More

Having visited this establishment and stayed at the Cennet for the past 20 years, I have to say that yet again, our holiday in June was unsurpassed in terms of hospitality and the excellent level of service. Yet again, nothing was too much trouble for Nihat, Serpil and the team who pride themselves in offering perfect hospitality and excellent food... More

Have eaten in The Mercan many times and always found their food to be fantastic but this year it's even better. The staff are so friendly and make us feel so welcome. When I am in Turkey on my own it's a restaurant where I can feel comfortable and safe. The owners, Nihat and Serpal are so very kind, they... More

I have to say I am very upset by the inaccurate comments placed about this restaurant by NadineBolton. I was present in the restaurant on the night in question and actually spoke to Nadine who is actually from my home town of Bolton. She did have one white wine spritzer and when she went to speak with the owners wife... More

Had a meal here and watched football. Meal was really nice football wasn't! The only criticism is that the music is very loud. We sat at a bar opposite and couldn't hear ourselves or chat to the ladies on the next table. Turn it down a bit guys!

We have always had fantastic food at the Mercan but this year they have the best chef ever. They have a great menu with delicious food and is a wonderful family run restaurant. Whether you just want a coffee & a game of pool or a lovely meal, you will always be made to feel welcome.
