“Great Little Restaurant”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Ate at Cabare last week with my family. We had walked past the place a couple of times and perhaps ignored it because the location is'nt brilliant, it's on a main thouroughfare and perhaps doesn't, at first sight have the ambience that some of the more traditional turkish restaurants do...... However, my son insisted that we try it and I'm glad that we did. The food and service were excellent. After two weeks in Turkey it was nice to have some northern european food for a change and give the messe a miss. The chicken snitzel was fabulous as were the pasta dishes. It was obvious that many of the other dinners were regulars, which is a good sign. The service was attentive and Sonja the Austrian co-owner was charming, helpful and quite charismatic. You can see the spotlessly clean kitchen from your table and watch the food being prepared. I wish we had ventured into this place earlier. Highly reccommended.

“Great, cute restaurant in the heart of Selcuk”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We ate here twice, once upon first arriving in Selcuk, and for our final meal 2 days later. We really enjoyed the variety of food including the excellent beef steak. For lunch we had the mixed kebabs that was big enough for both of us to split. The Strawberry milkshake is excellent as well! Staff is very friendly and accommodating, and the place seemed to be "hopping" with tourists from all over. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling through!

“Our number one restaurant in Selcuk”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Couldn't give higher praise to this delightful restaurant, the food is fresh and very tasty and the staff are fun, efficient and welcoming.
It was lovely to have Turkish food with a bit more flair and flavour, served with attention to detail. We ate there for five of the six nights we were in Selcuk so we also had a chance to try their delicious pastas and salads.
Don't miss out on buying Grandma's homemade 'olive soap', it's really great on sunburnt sun!

“The love you and you will love them.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This restaurant not just makes great food - absolutely best moussaka in Selcuk by the way - but these two beautiful young women, Manacha and Sonya, make you feel home and make you smile. There are so many good restaurants in Selcuk, especially in that area. It's hard to decide which one to choose, but when my wife and I saw these welcoming faces, their smiles we decided that it's the place and we're happy that we did it. It was such a memorable evening. They will soon be at the top of TripAdviser in Seljuk. Highly recommend!

“good food, good prices”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The CaBaRe was recommended from our hotel and it was a good choice. The staff is friendly and speaking english and german. The food is good and fresh. The salad is very good!
It is directly in downtown and it is nice to sit outside and watch the people while eating.
I can recommend!
