We ate at Emir one evening on our recent trip to Side. The restaurant is a lovely oasis of calm away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip. There is no-one standing in the road outside dragging you in, which is more or less the norm in Side unfortunately.
The menu at Emir is great value as they offer a fixed price choice which includes meze, bread, main course, fruit and tea. We had a memorable fish dish for our main, which was divine. We were shown the freshly caught fish from that day to choose from and it was then cooked simply and deliciously. Service is slow paced but very friendly and the place has a lovely relaxed homely feel. We would strongly recommend paying a visit. This was one of our favourite restaurants in Side by far.
