“Bad experience(s)”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Since my first visit to the Ottoman House restaurant it has been my favourite restaurant. But not anymore. I visited the restaurant several times during my holiday and it was everytime very unpleasant experience and there was a bad atmosphere. The house itself is beautiful but the new decorations, such as paintings of sultans all over the yard, makes it feel tacky instead of classy like it was before. I feel like the level of food has gone down a bit and Efes beer is amazingly expensive. I mean who would pay 15 liras in a restaurant for a beer?! I have to praise the waiters, they are always polite, happy and welcoming and they do their job well. I feel that the change in ownership is the problem here. I have seen the owners scream at the waiters for no reason at all and in front of customers.You should not have to listen to screaming for half an hour and longer while trying to enjoy your evening, it is not very professional behaviour from management. And I have very unpleasant feeling to be even near them as they always looked at me down their noses like I was worth nothing and not even welcome there. Even their children did that! And what makes me feel the new owners are not really professional is that I have seen the man sleep at work and other times he just looks really drunk. I really like Ottoman House and last year it was my favourite place but I feel now like I am not appriciated there even if the lovely waiters do their best and more to keep me happy. I just feel like it is not worth visiting as there are better places in Alanya. I would not recommend this restaurant for anyone anymore, unless the owners change.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant twice during our vacation in Alanya. Both times we have really nice food and the personelle is very friendly. The live music was not too dominating (which we found it at some of the other restaurants).

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

I have eaten at Ottoman House several times over the past 10 years and whilst the food is good it is not as good as it should be. The atmosphere is gone, the food is not as good and the Efes beer is nearly twice the price as everywhere else (15tl)- and not priced on the menu! The history of the house and the surrounding area is not acknowledged and our waiter was more than in a hurry to complete his last two months of work and leave. There are plenty of other places to eat where the food is just as good and the Efes reasonably priced! Disappointing.
