“A great restaurant home from home:)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Paprika is a tiny restaurant in the heart of Yalikavak.
It is open winter and summer. The restaurant is run by a charming couple who have decided to do this for a retirement job. However, they work amazingly hard. Preparing fresh food at very reasonable prices.

You may eat beautiful fresh Turkish food, fresh fish N' chips or simply eat the Turkish starters which are unbelievable. The wine is fine or you may sip your raki all night long and watch the world go by. For tourist Ahmet speaks English:) You may eat alone or in a group and always feel happy:)) I use the restaurant for my home from home kitchen to take my friends, family or even eat alone of season:)

“Our favourite restaurant in Yalikavak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Paprika was a real find, tucked down a side street and away from the beach. Family run, the food and service were excellent. We ate here twice, enjoying their selection of mezzes to start, and following with fish and casserole, and finishing with complimentary fruit. The house wine was good and the overall bill very reasonable.

“A little Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We came across Paprika by accident when we were looking for another restaurant and what a find it turned out to be. Ahmet the owner was delightful making us feel very welcome and explaining in detail the excellent range of mezzes which were delicious. We had a monkfish dish for our main course and it was superb, not a massive plate of rice, chips and salad, which is typical of other places but a well presented dish accompanied by sautéed potatoes. We were then provided with a delicious plate of fruit for free. The wine was also a reasonable price.
Paprika is situated in one of the side roads from the harbour which is very atmospheric and it is well worth a visit.

“size does not matter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

After holidaying in yalikavak for 11 years , my wife and I decided to visit this very small r esteraunt after several people had recommended it. This was last night so we gave it a visit. The only thing wrong was that we had not tried it before. The owner was very friendly, made us feel at home,
nothing was too much trouble and the food was very good and at a reasonable price.

We will be back in September, Paprica will be on our must list.

“Brilliant Little Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Paprika in Yalikavak is a great little restaurant. We visited Yalikavak in late August 2012 (family of 4).We ate in Paprika twice and it was super both times (we would have gone more - but ran out of nights).. Great fish (Brill, Bass and Monkfish), great chicken dishes, inexpensive local wine (10 euro) and freezing cold Efes. Ahmet is front of house and he a pure gent. His wife and two sons also run this restaurant (Gulseren, Murat and Mefin).Ahmet gave us complimentary chocolates, liquers and coffee (really looked after us - really welcomes kids especially). On a busy street so plenty of action passing by the restaurant. Great music on his ipod - both traditional and jazz. My favourite restaurant in Yalikavak - great hosts, great food, real value for money. All the best from your Irish friends Brian, Lily, Lauren and Adam. Highly recommended.
