I really can't understand the previous two reviews for this restaurant/beach.

I returned from Kas yesterday and went there 4 times, I visit Kas often and had not been there before. I do not really like the concrete platforms and generally to one of the nearby beaches. However if you want to stay close to town then the Elit 'beach' and restaurant is fine, it is very convenient especially if you don't want to be at the beach all day.

As with many beach restaurants the menu is very simple but we found the food well prepared and excellent value. Very good salads and sigara borek. I didn't try the sandwiches or burgers (why when in Turkey?) so can't comment. The beer was cold - served in glasses straight from the freezer.

The young lad who runs it was very cheerful and helpful, we found the service quick and could not fault it.

It is easy to get in to the sea and the swimming/snorkelling was fine but the water can get a bit choppy on windy days - however this would be the same at any beach.

Judging by some of the conversations that I overheard, the Elit is obviously quite a popular place, many people seem to go there every day or are very regular visitors.

I suggest that people try it. If you don't like it then fine you don't have to go back. But I have been to Kas perhaps 20 times in the last 6 years and can be fussy about where I eat and spend my time. I had not been to the Elit before my latest holiday but I will definitely go again.

It is difficult to rate this beach/cafe in comparision with other restaurants in Kas. It should be borne in mind that it is essentially a beach bar not a full restuarant - but as such it does the job very nicely. I would not expect it to score highly in terms of 'atmosphere'

I have to agree with the other review on this Cafe. You would think that it would be easy to run a simple beach cafe but it seemed that the owner/ mgr was more intent on honing his diving skills than caring for the patrons.

We waited hours for service and when we finally got someone's attention, the food was terrible and the beer flat and warm.

There are so many great places in Kas to go to, don't waste your time on this one.

Very sorry to hear about this bad experience with Elit Beach.
Since 2011 there is a new owner and he commits himself to get be the best in town: food, service, environnement.
This winter we did major renovations: the beach is bigger, new sunbeds and umbrellas, a new bar and kitchen. The staff runs around with a smile on their face and they help you where ever they can. Also the menu hes been changed: the cooks put all their passion in every meal they serve.
I dare you, if you are in Kaş this summer, come and visit us again. I'll bet you will write another review.

The location of this beach side cafe is ıdeal with plenty of sun chairs and umbrellas and a splendid view. Kas is a great town with wonderful people and İ hate to give a bad review. However this cafe should be avoided. My friends and İ tried it 3 times since the location is so great. İt is part of the Kas Hotel which is right in the middle of town. Twice two of us were very sick from the cafe snacks and twice our bills had extra items added on that we did not eat or drink. The worst part however was the proprietor who insisted our bills were correct. He was very rude and kept our change both times when we paid our bill. We were very dısappointed so stay away from Elit Beach Cafe and Beach!!

I am very sorry to hear about this bad experience at Elit Beach.
Since 2011 there is a new owner who made this beach a very special place in Kaş.
This year major renovations were done in wintertime: the beach is now bigger, the sunbeds and umbrellas are new, we've built a new bar and kitchen.
I can say the beach has an incredible staff which gives excellent service: young boys running around in the full sun with always a smile on their face.
Also the menu has been changed: the cooking staff puts their passion for food in every meal they serve.
I dare you: if you are in Kaş this summer, come and visit us again, I bet you will rethink your review.
