“Poor food quality.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Noone in our parth of six enjoyed the food here although other people we met seemed to enjoy it. Maybe down to different chefs? We did not return.

“Tried to overcharge us!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

We were coaxed into the Toscana Beach under the assurance that it was the same restaurant as Toscana, which is in a more prominent location on the main street. We only stopped for drinks and dessert as we'd already eaten a main meal elsewhere We sat and worked out our bill as we had just enough Tirkish Lira to cover the bill, We were totally shocked to find the bill was well over our calculation based on what we'd ordered. When we asked, the waiter looked quite sheepish and explained that there must had been a mix up and that he'd check We pointed out that it was almost 20TL higher than it should have been and asked if service charges had been added. Again, the waiter explained that this must have been a mistake.

My advice would be to stay away or check you bill carefully when you pay and tot up what you've had. It's very easy to ramp up a bill as many people just simply pay and don't ask any questions. We didn't always do this, but we noticed straight away at the Toscana Beach because it was so blatantly ovbvious and far higher than expected. Simply and very clearly an attempt to overcharge us, We didn't go back and later discovered that Toscana and Toscana Beach were two separately owned after the owners had a fallout. Can quite easily see how this happened if one owner was consistently overcharging customers.

“Lovely restaurant with friendly staff and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

We first visited Toscana Beach 3 years ago and loved it, visiting 2-3 times during that holiday. We returned this year and although we did enjoy the meal and the staff were friendly and nice, we didn't find the food as great as we remembered it. We did still enjoy the food however and the service was good, we just found another restaurant a bit further up that was far better in service and food (Swallows). However I did really enjoy Toscana's desserts! Quite a few staff changes since our last visit, but owner was very welcoming and new staff friendly and chatty (Gokhan). I think worth a visit.

“Reasonable prices for average food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We used to be Toscana Beach fans and visited regularly each holiday, however the past two years we have found that this restaurant has somewhat lost it's sparkle.
The food served, although reasonably priced, is no longer of the standard of most other restaurants in the area and following this year's visit, I would suggest we will only return for the odd lunch as we were a little disappointed with our evening meal this year.
