It took us 2 tries just to find the place. Some directions say it's at the back of the museum, which it technically is, but it's on a steep, side street behind the museum. I think i had pictured it as part of the complex or just in the rear of a courtyard.

Once we found the place and took a seat outdoors in the shade, the owner greeted us warmly and brought our food quickly. The kebabs were quite good and as were the appetizers. This place had a mom-and-pop shop feel to it and a row of turkish ladies were looking at us from the upstairs balcony. This entertained us even though we had no idea what they were saying. We met some fellow travelers at this place as well. This place certainly deserves its place in the rankings... i just wish there was an easier way to describe its location.

My boyfriend and I came to Selcuk as part of a cross-Turkey journey we took during spring break. As someone who is working in Turkey, I eat a lot of Turkish food. The simple and homey fare they offer here is some of the best I've had in awhile, and an unexpected treat in such a touristy location. We liked it so much, we came here twice!

At first we were apprehensive because our hostel host brought us here without asking. He definitely had our best interests at heart, though. Mehmet and his son were extremely hospitable and welcoming. My boyfriend is a vegetarian, which can be a struggle in some parts of the country, but Mehmet had great recommendations. During our first visit, we shared some decent sarma, followed by some incredible gozleme. The nar (pomegrate) sauce tasted good on everything. My manti was tasty and fresh. We hung out for awhile afterwards talking about Turkish cay and rappers. A great meal!

A fine dining establishment this restaurant is not. It is indeed hard to fathom how this place receives the #1 restaurant rating for Selchuk. That said, it is a decent place if you are prepared to dine in simple surroundings, eat pretty good food, primarily kebabs and wraps, at reasonable prices. My daughter and I ate here 3 times, 2 dinners and 1 lunch, during our stay. The owner, Mehmet, is very nice, good fun and interesting, and that in itself is worth the price of admission.

Mehmet and his family are enterprising and own other tourism related businesses in Selchuk and a couple other places on the coast. Adjacent to the restaurant he and his family own a tempting souvenir / carpet shop. It is a fun store to browse. We were in no way pressured to buy.

This place was recommended to us by the owner of our hotel and what a recommendation it was! The food was amazing and inexpensive! The service was also amazing! The owner answered any questions we had about the food and the city, and also helped us with learning Turkish. I would definitely go back here again!
