We are always surprised by the bad reviews for Mercan. We make a point of eating here every visit and enjoy the classic meze and fish. This visit was no exception. The service was friendly and efficient. The meze fresh and tasty. The personnel at the entrance do try and sell you the biggest most expensive fish, but be firm! Up selling is their job! Compared to other restaurants in town Mercan is no more pricey. Consider how long they have been serving quality food (20 years in my memory) and they can't be doing it all wrong!

Average food at best, service was basic.

Somehow when we ordered we felt we had failed a test because we only ordered two starters. Then it went downhill.

Food was okay but bland

Would only choose this is everywhere else was closed

A typical touristique place, where you pay a lot of money for very average food. The restaurant is conveniently located at the harbor. There are much better choices in Kas. We would definitely not go back.

Maybe Sunday lunchtime is not their best but this is a big restaurant and there were only two other couples in it. We ordered calamari and prawns which seemed to cause some excitement in the kitchen. After 40 minutes and no food we enquirer what was wrong but the waiter whose English had been excellent before suddenly didn't understand and walked away. We went to the kitchen where there was lots of chopping going on but no cooking. Next thing someone walks in with a supermarket bag and a tub of something in it. Next thing we are told our food would be two minutes. We were being had on fresh seafood and left having paid for the water and bread.

We have been in Kas several times and always eat at the Mercan a few times during our stay. The food is always outstanding, the meze are beautiful and the fish fresh and well prepared. We feel it is better value for money than most other fish restaurants in Kas. Yes, they do like to sell you a big fish for your group, and those tend to be more expensive, but they are equally happy if you order something different and cheaper. I don't know why people have problems with the service, we have always found the waiters extremely polite and helpful. This year, one of them even found me in the middle of town about twenty minutes after we left, bringing me the glasses, I had forgotten on the table! The location is wonderful, overlooking the harbour and we enjoy the atmosphere in this lovely restaurant.
