Just the very best food that I have eaten so far in Turkey. Presentation is outstanding and food is so very very tasty. I really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere too. This place is so unlike most Turkish restaurants in the way it presents it's food and the continental cuisine in a bistro style dining area. I recommend this place for a big change from the boring monotonous food generally served in Turkish establishments.

I couldn't tell you whether this Restaurant deserves its top billing in Antalya but having eaten here, I don't intend finding out how the competition compares as this meal was completely faultless. Three of us on a quiet lunchtime. The most delicious starters, fillet steak cooked perfectly for three fussy customers with different temperature requirements and as for the deserts ... Simply Devine.

This is one restaurant worth saving room from the hotel buffets for! Highly reccommended.

Finding Vanilla on a chilly wet night couldn't have been more welcome. The lovely fire in the fireplace and the candlelight quickly mad us forget the cold, wet weather outside. Don't miss the pumpkin with lemongrass soup, it's truly amazing. We also enjoyed delicious salads and a wonderful pizza. The local wine selection was great too.

Our last night in Turkey and honestly we were SO sick of your standard Turkish food, much of which is pretty generic. Had a night in Antalya after being down on the Mediterranean coast, found this through TripAdvisor. Had a hard time finding the place--it was a cold, rainy November night, but we persisted, thank goodness. Sat at a table by the cozy fire, which was perfect as we were cold and a little wet! The food was SPECTACULAR, the owner and his wife lovely, they just gave us a great last "taste" of Turkey before leaving the country. HIGHLY recommend it!

Food was patchy, good bits and bad bits and it all felt a bit disorganised. In Antalya, the main advantages of this place in the old town are to avoid the shill and take in some relaxed atmosphere eclectic food. The carpacio was very good, the tartare tasty and well constructed, but the fries it came with were poor. My partner's risotto was very good. Drinks came, but not the water. It seemed as though the sole waitress was under pressure and had too much to do. Dishes didn't quite come together either.
