Description: The beautiful relaxed restaurant, offers a delicious selection of meals. Turkish specialities including the best examples of Turkish Meze, Fresh Fish, scrumptious steaks and locally farmed Lamb. Combining our own and locally grown organic ingredients with the talents of Tolga, the owner and Chef, our menu includes dishes to suit every age and taste. The informal atmosphere is perfect for our guests to enjoy their evening. Relaxing on the fabulous terrace in the cool breeze from the mountain, with a cheese board and excellent Red. Mojito sun downers, and a superb selection of liquor, fresh coffees and teas can be enjoyed while reclining in the gorgeous cushioned seating areas that are very hard to part from...

We visited this restaurant near the end of the holiday which is a shame becasue we wished we had discovered it earlier. Superb surroundings and really friendly attentative staff. Lots of choice on the menu and satisfied everyones tastes, including a fussy veggie. This is a place you go to get a really good high end meal. I would liken the prices to similar to what you would pay for a good meal in the UK, reasonable and you get what you pay for. This isnt a place you go to get a cheap pizza/burger. Thoroughly recommended and will go back when I revisit Turkey.

We were recommended to visit this restaurant by our local contact on our final night. We were not disappointed although the menu is clearly Western but we also felt the kids were ready for a taste of home as we had been quite adventurous with our Turkish cuisine during the holiday! Definitely at the higher end of the price range, Izela feels high-class too. I certainly wouldn't recommend it for every night's meal unless you have very deep pockets, but as a special treat, it cannot be bettered in this area.

Attentive, but not intrusive service. Lunch is served in Gunay's Garden, a special place. Food superbly prepared from a shortish menu, but there's sufficient variety to suit most tastes and appetites. Reasonable prices for such a highly recommended restaurant. The attention to detail is remarkable. A wonderful location for a midweek lunch.

We've eaten here several times and always been delighted with the whole experience. We had a number of reasons to celebrate and Izela seemed the perfect place to arrange a lunch for ourselves and 20 or so friends.
The planning was straight forward and when we arrived on the day it was clear great care had been taken to make us welcome.
The food was excellent - no small challenge when 20+ people need serving main courses at the same time. My husband thought the Baklava was the best he'd ever tasted!
The service was faultless. The location as wonderful as always.
The whole party enjoyed the afternoon - so much so that it was suggested we should make this an annual event! Thanks to everyone involved for a happy and memorable day.

Been visiting this area for 15 years and we found this restaurant last year and been back many times since. Great food, great service and great staff. The atmosphere is fab the only thing missing was a man! Would be great for romantic meal but just as good without! Very relaxing and the best food we have tasted in turkey for years x
