After 2 weeks of Turkish meals 2 to 3 times a day which have been mostly excellent, we were lookin forward to a break. Vanilla did not disappoint with quality, service or ambience. We had delicious monk fish with Gorgonzola gnocchi and our son ecxellent spare ribs. They and the accompanying salad were great. We had no problems with the relatively expensive food, but 4 lire for a small bottle of water?! Come on!

We have rarely gone back to a restaurant 2 nights in a row, but this is one you gotta go to. A small menu where we have now tasted everything from starters you could imagine from the best French bistros to the main juicy Japanese style sauce and tempura fried veggies - just perfect in a friendly warm atmosphere with owners asking to you

Well this is our 4th year on the trot to Antalya and every time we come we got to Vanilla. I have just got back to the UK after a 2 week holiday and in the 14 nights that we were there we went to Vanilla 6 times.
The staff are excellent, they have a curtain class other restaurants in Antalya don't have.
The food, well where can I start! It's all beutifully presented and tastes incredible! No.1 in Antalya and possibly Turkey for sure!
We can't get enough of the place. They will bend over backwards for you.
I work in the restaurant business in the UK and trust me when i say you must try it!
Emel, Wayne & little Blake thank you so much and see you soon.

We have just returned from our annual two week visit to our favourite Hotel Su in Antalya . After several visits to this hotel we have tried numerous restaurants in and around Antalya . We tried two new ones this time but still none were any where near as good as Vanilla Lounge for professional service and of course there wonderful food ! There were four of us , we worked our way through the menu over six visits this time ! From the pizzas to the steak Tatar , soup , 72 hours cooked rib of beef , delicious risotto ,fabulous monk fish, any of there desserts and must mention there cocktails ,especially the strawberry daiquiri !! You are the number one restaurant in Antalya without a doubt ! Thank you for being there ! You make our holiday .

Dined at Vanilla lounge having heard excellent things about it. We were not disappointed. We ate outside in a lovely cosy garden setting. You can also watch the world go by as you wait as there is a walkway by the side of the restaurant. The staff were very attentive. Menu is varied - from steaks and monkfish to pizzas. All plates coming out the kitchen looked very well presented so you felt you were in a really upmarket restaurant. I will certainly be returning here if i were to come back to Antalya on holiday. Top tip- if you see the chocolate brownie on the dessert menu get it wow wow wow!
