Description: The Mozaik Bahçe (Mosaic Garden) restaurant specializes exclusively in dishes from south east Turkey. The menu is influenced by the rich and diverse mosaic culture of the Hatay region and its historical association with Ottoman, Arabic, Armenian and French cuisine. Often described as a little oasis, the Mozaik Bahçe is located in the heart of Fethiye town, set slightly back from the main streets in a pretty garden setting decorated with traditional Turkish hand crafted mosaic lights and lanterns.

“Excellent Turkish food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Decided to go in because we saw the Trip Advisor logo as we were passing. We were staying at the Tuana Park resort fully inclusive and needed a change. We ended up here 3 times in aweek. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The staff are friendly and good fun. We loved this restuarant and we will definateley return on our once yearly visit to Turkey.

“The best place to eat in Fethiye!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We visited this restaurant after reading others' reviews and were so impressed with the food and service on our fist visit we ended up going back a further 3 times in two weeks.
The presentation and taste of the food which is cooked using a rich blend of Eastern Turkish spices makes each dish different from anything else you will eat in any other restaurant. We shared the mezze for one, the portion was so huge we struggled to finish our main courses. The puddings are amazing, again not anything you will find in any of the other local restaurants and well worth trying if you want a real taste of Eastern Turkish cuisine. At the end of the meal we were offered a hot drink on the house and some lemon juice mixture from the freezer to cleanse our hands! The portions are large so take a healthy appetite with you, and we found it very reasonably priced, much cheaper than the restaurants in the harbour area.
The owner and his staff were very welcoming and helpful, giving us descriptions of different dishes making it easier to choose. I recommend the wrap or mukfat, I had the vegetarian one which was absolutely delicious, the best in Fethiye.

Thank you so much for your review of the Mozaik Bahçe (Mosaic Garden) restaurant in Fethiye.

We really appreciate your feedback and we are delighted you enjoyed your first visit so much that you came back a further three times during your two week holiday.

As you mentioned we offer something different serving only specialty dishes and desserts from Hatay a province in south east Turkey using a unique blend of spices and herbs in the mezes and for marinating meats that are only found in that part of the country.

Thank you again

“Lovely Staff and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Lovely home made rustic Turkish food. Very attentative staff and friendly owner (as him about his wonderful work of looking after and helping homeless cats and dogs in the town). The only quibble was that the lamb for the shish kebab was very tough -needs a more expensive cut.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Mozaik Bahçe (Mosaic Garden) restaurant in Fethiye.

We really appreciate your feedback and thank you for comments about our “attentive staff”; we have a great staff team. We are very sorry that your lamb was tough. We do already buy the most expensive cut and our chef spends a lot of time checking for and removing any tendons which is the main contributory factor to tough lamb. We improved the marinating process last year which also helps to ensure that the lamb is tender. However we appreciate your comments and always discuss feedback with the chef to try and ensure we do better in future.

Thank you again

“Looks good but bland!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

First of all, it was a right jaunt to get here from Olu Deniz using the Dolmus, which went a long at a snail pace trying to pick up any person they could find. Then dropped off in the middle of Fethiye without a clue of where this restaurant was. Yet, we persevered due to all the good reports and finally found the restaurant.

We were given a very warm welcome and I must admit throughout our meal the staff were very friendly and attentive. However, the issue was the food, two of us had the lamb kebabs, the other a chicken kebab and my wife a stew of some description. I went for the kebab after seeing all the pictures on here and when it came it looked amazing, thats where it finished. It was bland, their were far too many wraps and everything on the plate tasted exactly the same on the plate. Their was no spice or any taste of herbs, it was really disappointing.

I was not alone in this thinking either everybody else on my table thought the same about their dishes. Hence why if it was just one plate I would have said something, but if all 4 are disappointing its not something that can be rectified. It all comes down to personal taste, the restaurant is rated high, so some people like this food, but for me it was lacking in the taste department, however everything else was spot on. We were also treated to a complimentary Turkish Coffee at the end which was a nice touch. Therefore for everything else it delivers I think it deserves 3 stars.

Thank you for your review of the Mozaik Bahçe (Mosaic Garden) restaurant in Fethiye and we are pleased that you received a “warm welcome” and found the staff “friendly and attentive”.

We use a unique blend of seven spices for marinating the meats and we use fresh herbs and spices in all our mezes and meals. Tasty is the word most associated with the meals we serve so we are sorry that the taste wasn't to your liking.

We serve the wraps with the kebabs because this is the traditional way it is served in Hatay and these are used to wrap a little meat and vegetable to create a mini kebab which you eat using your fingers if you want to eat the Turkish way.

We appreciate that you made the trip from Ölüdeniz which is probably easier by taxi door to door and not much more expensive than the Dolmuş if there are four or more people and a less stressful way to make the journey.

“It was so good, we went back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We visited Mozaik Garden based on the previous reviews and were not disappointed. What a lovely restaurant, tucked away from the hussle of the busy streets. The restaurant owner and his staff make this place, they are warm and welcoming and clearly very passionate about the food they produce and keeping their customers happy. My partner and I loved this place so much, we returned for a 2nd visit and had another delicious meal and warm welcome. If you like traditional turkish food and want to escape the crowds, then this is the perfect place. When we visit Fethiye again, we will absolutely return to the Mozaik Garden restaurant.
