We visited this impressive looking restaurant last month ( October 2013 ) and I can honestly say that the food and service is the best that I have experienced in a very long time and also at a very reasonable price. The food is cooked fresh to order and the ingredients used are of a very high quality. There is a great selection of both Turkish and European dishes and the house wine / spirits are also excellent. The restaurant itself is immaculate, clean and stylish and overall the ambience is warm and welcoming - we tried several other restaurants during our two week stay but this one stood out by far - I would highly recommend a visit - I promise you will not be disappointed.
thank you again

What a little gem of a restaurant.It's a new build of old stone and wood with glass walls.
Staff are excellent and the food came to you and was piping hot.
It also has an excellent bar.So thanks to all at Candlelight for a great experience.

Very nice food. Warm bread with garlic butter / mayo stuff to start (why don't British restaurants do this?). Lisa had a Turkish pizza which she said was very good and I had Shrimp Guvlec why was very good.
Portions aren't huge but TL66 (just over £20) which included some cheesecake and ice cream and three drinks, is good value.

Service was a bit slow but add this was our last night and we weren't getting picked up till one o'clock we didn't really mind.

Excellent, excellent, excellent - food, service, ambience, surroundings, toilets (!), staff are all 5 out of 5. You must visit this restaurant if you want to experience Turkish hospitality at its' very best.So many personal touches which stand out........such as giving us a lighter we admired as a gift, giving complimentary drinks to a newly married couple and one of our party asked Sabri, the boss, how to cook a rice dish and he actually took her to the kitchen and asked the chef to explain the methodology to her.
All of these extra touches make Candlelight the number 1 restaurant in this area - well done!

Just spent two weeks at Candlelight Motel as we have been doing for last 6 years. It's spotless, has a full size pool and the staff are wonderful. Sabri the owner is the kindest man and will go out of his way to make sure you have a wonderful holiday. Read reviews about the new candlelight restaurant and couldn't wait to try it. Well what can I say? Wonderful food and service. We ate there 8 times out of our 14 nights (something we never do as we like to try other restaurants) and every meal was excellent. I had fillet steak 4 times and it melted in my mouth cooked perfectly by chef Mehmet. Arribatta Pasta was delicious as were the Turkish dishes we tried. Could not fault the place at all. Tried a few other restaurants that were more expensive that came nowhere near the Candlelight experience. Staff were wonderful especially Eylum and Abush and the decor and ambience is fantastic. Do give it a try if passing you won't be disappointed. This restaurant will be number 1 next year no doubt about it. Keep up the good work Sabri and will see you next May, can't wait. L and S
