Description: Turkish cuisine (Turkish: Turk mutfagı) is largely the continuation of Ottoman cuisine, which in turn borrowed many elements from Greek, Central Asian, Caucasian, Jewish, Middle Eastern, and Balkan cuisines.[1][2] Turkish cuisine has in turn influenced those and other neighbouring cuisines, including those of Central and Western Europe. The Ottomans fused various culinary traditions of their realm with influences from Levantine cuisines, along with traditional Turkic elements from Central Asia (such as yogurt and mantı), creating a vast array of specialities—many with strong regional associations. Turkish cuisine and Iranian cuisine on the other hand have heavy mutual influence on each other, due to geographical proximity, ethnic relations (f.e Azerbaijanis, a Turkic people, are the second largest ethnicity in Iran) many common cultural aspects, shared empires, and conquerings by such as the Achaemenids, Sassanians, Seljuks, Safavids, Afsharids, Ottomans and Qajars. Turkish cuisine varies across the country. The cooking of Istanbul, Bursa, Izmir, and rest of the Aegean region inherits many elements of Ottoman court cuisine, with a lighter use of spices, a preference for rice over bulgur, koftes and a wider availability of vegetable stews (turlu), eggplant, stuffed dolmas and fish. The cuisine of the Black Sea Region uses fish extensively, especially the Black Sea anchovy (hamsi) and includes maize dishes. The cuisine of the southeast -Urfa, Gaziantep and Adana- is famous for its variety of kebabs, mezes and dough-based desserts such as baklava, sobiyet, kadayıf and kunefe. Especially in the western parts of Turkey, where olive trees grow abundantly, olive oil is the major type of oil used for cooking.[3] The cuisines of the Aegean, Marmara and Mediterranean regions are rich in vegetables, herbs, and fish. Central Anatolia has many famous specialties, such as keskek, mantı (especially from Kayseri) and gozleme. A specialty's name sometimes includes that of a city or region, either in or outside of Turkey, and may refer to the specific technique or ingredients used in that area. For example, the difference between Urfa kebap and Adana kebap is the thickness of the skewer and the amount of hot pepper that the kebab contains. Urfa kebap is less spicy and thicker than Adana kebap. Turks survived famines by minimizing the consumption of food. Therefore, in the morning time they consumed only water and bread that would often be dry and stale from being conserved; due to shortages in agricultural harvest. This practice was adopted into Turkish culture and the dish was named Iratchu

We have visited this restaurant several times over the last couple of years. On this occasion a table was booked in advance for 10 of us for a birthday dinner for one of our friends. The staff had decorated the table most attractively for the occasion. The food is excellent, lots of choice on the menu, good-sized portions, lots of colour and pricing is very reasonable. This is my favourite restaurant in Fethiye and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great meal in nice surroundings.

This place has a lovely sea view. The food is consistently good and big portions. The service can be hit and miss but we find that in all Turkish restaurants. A very relaxed place to have lunch or dinner.

We use to goto this restaurant alot but sadly think that the service has gone downhill. Took ages for the waiters to acknowledge us and then took ages for them to come and take orders (restaurant wasnt busy). Starters came with the main meals, steak was really tough and on the childrens burger buns where so dry. This restaurant has a lovely setting but it needs to offer more than this. Also watch out as a service charge was included in the bill.

We really enjoy stopping off here to have a coffee or a snack. The main meals we have had have not been the best we have had in Fethiye but are still very good. We love to walk and people watch all the way from the harbour, have a drink and a snack, then either carry on to the end of the seafront of turn around and back into the old town.
