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

Stumbled across this restaurant one evening.
We where staying in Hisaronu & decided to go down to Fethiye early one evening, look around & have a meal.

Took the Dolmus to the terminus & started walking towards the sea front with the aid of a map. As we approached the Mcdonalds on our right we carried on walking straight forward instead of turning right towards the marina & all the boats which is where most people head for.
This is quite a long promenade to walk along with a few restaurants along its way however we never got to the end as our walk was cut short by an impending thunderstorm.

We decided to take shelter in the next available bar which just happened to be Bogazici.
We had to sit inside as the rain got heavier & heavier & ordered a couple of beers.
There was already quite a few people in there eating most of which seemed to be local turkish.

As it became apparent that the thunderstorm was with us for a while we decided to eat here.
Wide choice of menu all very reasonably priced.

The food was delicious & we struggled to eat everything which was brought to our table!
The service of the staff was very efficient & they where extremely friendly even though they where very busy fetching in all the tables & chairs from outside out of the rain.
We spent a couple of enjoyable hours in here eating, drinking & watching the view over the sea & mountains.

There are plenty of tables & chairs available some of which are set right against the waters edge. Lovely setting to sit & have a meal.
We where glad that it rained otherwise we may not have gone into this place & carried on walking down the promenade!
