Restaurant details
Reviewed March 12, 2014

We have found a great place to relax and enjoy a leisurely lunch after a visit to the equally excellent Archaeological museum in Antalya. the Varyant Restaurant is situated across the road from the museum, perched on top of the cliffs.Excellent views across Antalya Bay, whilst we ate a good meal in our own time. Freshly cooked food from the grill or kitchen, meat or fish menus, fair prices, friendly staff and good service. A delight to find a place so uncommercial in a quieter tourist area - well it was in winter time.

This restaurant is on the cliff top overlooking the Mediterranean at the end of the tram line from the old town and immediately opposite the (quite outstanding) Antalya archaeological museum. Hence highly logical to go there for lunch after visiting the museum.

We were under a bit of time pressure - which was a shame because the view was outstanding, the weather perfect for sitting out and the atmosphere of the restaurant very relaxing. The waiter service was great and we hit the timing we needed to get back to the hotel for our coach to the airport.

It's quite an upmarket restaurant. We shared a house salad as a starter. It was stunning, absolutely fresh with green salad leaves, soft avocado, some tomato and dressed for us at the table. Main courses varied between kebabs, chicken and in my case fresh red mullet ("barbun").

My fish was quite delicious, served with an oil, lemon and garlic sauce. We drank the local Efes beer - just right in the sunshine; the wine list seemed fine though and reasonably priced.

We finished off with the specialty local dessert - figs in syrup with slightly gelatinous ice cream. It was a large portion, delicious but after the earlier course we could have easily shared one between two of us.

Great way to finish a holiday.
