Delicious food and menu available. What a lovely time we had in this restaurant. The family who run it are lovely and attention to detail is clearly important to them. We could not get a table last year but booked by email this year. We then arranged to return the following week on our first visit..The setting is cosy and comfortable and there is no rush to leave. Hence the difficulty with getting tables. However they clearly want each customer to feel relaxed and as providers of a service they don't put greed before the comfort of the customer. So refreshing to find such 5 star service in a small run restaurant. Don't miss out on an opportunity to visit but book to avoid disappointment. Not expensive and definitely value for money.

Myself and my husband were taken here early on in our holiday for lunch, we then visited it 3 more times whilst we were there! Great place for lunch, service was brilliant too. Would definitely recommend this place!!

If you visit Ovacik in Turkey, then you must visit the Yengec...... Lucy, Huseyin, Richard and Di have always provided a brilliant service. They are warm and friendly every time they meet you. The setting is beautiful with well tended gardens and the setting of the tables are with soft lighting situated by the pool area. The tables are nicely spaced apart and you are able to enjoy your meal at leisure. The menu offers a wide variety of starters, main courses and desserts and Lucy is on hand to explain all in detail. I would highly recommend the Lemon Tart or Lemon Drizzle for dessert but leave some space so you are able to enjoy!!!! The food is excellent and cooked to a very high standard and very reasonably priced, certainly worth the money compared to other restaurants in town. You will not find a restaurant in town that could compare to the Yengec's quality and service. Please book as the Yengec is very popular and I would hate for you to miss out.

It's the second occasion we've visited Yengec and yet again everything was fantastic.

A varied menu catering for all tastes the family owned and run restaurant excels at everything they do.

Wonderful calm surroundings and stunning views make it the perfect location for a wonderful dinner.

It is advisable to book to avoid disappointment as they do not pack the customers in.

We booked a table with Lucy from the UK by email just prior to leaving the UK as TA had confirmed the need to book in advance. We are so glad we did and were delighted with our visit to Yengec.
It was our most expensive evening meal out during our holiday but it was also the only night we opted for a bottle of wine which generally in Turkey is currently pretty expensive. So in effect Yengec still represented excellent value for money.
Upon our arrival we were greeted incredibly warmly by Lucy's father, Richard, and then Lucy herself. We also chatted to Lucy's Mum who was equally wonderful. Richard took the time to chat with us and we immediately warmed to him. He offered us to wine taste before choosing. Lucy came along with her mouth watering menu's and starters & mains special boards and spoke from the heart with passion about the menu options and just had a lovely buoyant way about her. Within 10 minutes and prior to ordering, my wife & I looked at each other and knew we'd chosen a great place to spend an evening.
The ambience at Yengec is exceptional. The dining area is actually right beside the swimming pool which you might feel doesn't sound that great but it works really well with the stunning gardens, greenery and backdrop of the mountain. You instantly feel at home. The team at Yengec quickly make you feel that way through a personalised welcome & service. Far superior to some other 'top' ranked restaurants we visited in our opinion.
Our choice of meals included chicken nuggets (6 year old lol), Italian Chicken with rich/spicy tomato sauce, spicy prawns, salmon fishcakes, grilled cheese with homemade chutney and fillet steak in a mushroom/mustard sauce. Our children and my wife truly adored their meals. I did too. I did ask for my fillet steak rare and it was actually cooked medium however. That was the only minor downside to our visit but my steak was still wonderful to eat.
During our 13 night stay in Ovacik we dined out every night and for my wife and myself Yengec, alongside Teras Bar, were our best experiences both in terms of service & quality of meals devoured!
Thank you so much to Lucy, her parents, her husband Huseyin and the rest of the team at Yengec for a truly delightful experience.
