I have visited Istanbul Bar Restaurant many times and have wrıtten a couple of very favourable reviews. But sadly all has now changed. The owner Baran and his brothers are no longer around. Under the new management the food may be the same but it ıs very clear that the difference between an OK restaurant and a great restaurant is the staff!

Wıthout the personality of the Baran family and their fellow workers this ıs just another restaurant anong many vieing for your business. And judging by the absence of customers all the 'old' regulars are voting with their feet.

We first visited the Istanbul during this Summer & returned during our stay in October. For our anniversary they cooked us a fantastic 3 course meal of Garlic bread, cheese baked in filo pastry & Sea Bass cooked in rocksalt. They covered our table with Bouganville flowers & all the staff again made us very welcome & could not do enough for us. Thankyou Istanbul.

This bar is a must when visiting Icmeler for myself and my family. The staff are wonderful and treat you just like old friends. The food is some of the best we have eaten whilst in Icmelr, my partner had the mexican chicken and he said it was amazing. Well worth a visit
