“Tranca Restaurant Bodrum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

We called into the Tranca a friendly family run bar and restaurant for a lunch time drink.Having looked at the menu we decided to book a table for dinner that evening.We were not disappointed we were shown to our table on the terrace over the sea with a wounderful view of the castle. The starter of home made meze and the fresh fish that followed were both excellent.
We asked for the bill and were offered coffee on the house nice touch,the bill was reasonable for the food we had eaten and we will return to the Tranca on our trip to Bodrum in September.

“Good restaurant with great view of the castle.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2011

Had lunch here on the terrace which juts out above the sea. The food was splendid - I had the kebabs and they were excellent! The price is by no means the cheapest nor most expensive in Bodrum - however we felt that we certainly got more than value for money. All the restaurants on this street have people who's sole role is to talk you in to eating in their restaurant - however we chose this one as we appreciated the 'lighter touch' of the gentleman on this particular door. It also looked a lot more classy to be fair! The very best bit is the view from the terrace - it was perfect!

“Good in bits, poor in bits”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2009

Good location in he centre of Bodrum with spectacular views from the dining terrace. Starters very good - particularly recommend the Turkish starters at 6m TKL each. Mains disappointing - clearly the chef had an eccentric view of what comprised a pesto sauce! Service friendly but a little over-enthusiastic when it came to filling wine glasses! Quite expensive but the location rather than the food compensated.

“Tranca Restaurant, Bodrum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2009

This restaurant serves really excellent Turkish food in quite the most wonderful setting, looking out at the bay towards the castle and islands. It was as immaculately clean as the water the water in the bay and a great place to eat or to simply have a drink on a warm day. The service was first class and all the staff were very friendly. You were not hurried and allowed to stay as long or as briefly as you wished.

In terms of value, the Tranca cannot be faulted. From appearances, you might think you were walking into a place where your waistline might increase but your wallet lighten. The menu, specialising in some superb kebabs, was very reasonably priced and there were no hidden charges as some reviewers have mentioned about other places in the Bodrum area.

We struck lucky with the Tranca and the next time we go to Bodrum we will certainly be heading there again. Recommended!
