Restaurant | "Fine dining at the tiny Sim Restaurant"

Sim Restaurant Photo, Antalya, Turkey
Quote:
One of our finer dining experiences was at the tiny little Restaurant Sim. We had wandered past the pretty but tiny outdoor space in a little dark passageway, and decided that it looked worth returning to. However, we decided to dine inside as we thought the location might be a little midge blown and the weather that day wasn't the best in any case. The restaurant inside isn't much bigger than the outside; there is a tiny little area on the ground floor next to the kitchens and serving area, and a further 5 tables or so upstairs. The restaurant was worth an explore in any case as it the usual Antalya style there seems to be some old odds and ends on display, such as family photos and an ol...Read More

Restaurant | "Nice harbourside spot in old town Antalya"

I usually avoid sitting in restaurants near water as you usually pay through the nose for it. However, sometimes needs must and we decided to accept the offer of the pushy but amusing with it waiter to sit at his restaurant for a relaxing drink and to watch the world go by. To be honest we didn't find the restaurant too expensive (I think beers were 8 Lire for a large one) and we were tempted to try a fish meal, although we were soon scuppered as our travelling companion isn't a great fish eater and didn't particularly fancy dining here. Instead, we had a bit of a smile with the waiter who was pretending that he was after an English bride and that our travelling companion would be perfect....Read More

Hotel | "Quality Turkish Meal at Villa Perla"

Quote:
Wandering through the backstreets of old town Antalya found us outside a beautiful walled courtyard; in fact I remembered dining here a dozen years ago and we decided to make a further stop. Our dining companion thought it was just a little too chilly to sit at one of the inviting tables outside so we were ushered into the stunning old but rather little restaurant indoors alongside the courtyard. The room looked like some old eccentric's living room dotted with everyday bits and pieces and we were quite happy in the atmosphere perusing both the menu and the furnishings for a while. I had to choose the meatballs in garlic as I hadn't eaten quite enough garlic so far (joke!) and ...Read More

Restaurant | "Public - best bar in Antalya"

Public Photo, Antalya, Turkey
Quote:
With so many places to explore we didn't really feel it was worth visiting many of the bars and restaurants of Antalya Old Town more than once. One place we made an exception for was the excellent Public bar located in a lively section of the old town, and fortuitously a stone's throw or two from our accommodation. The Public is very close to the Macha bar right across the street. The tables and chairs of the two seem to almost intermingle and it makes passing through this bit of street very difficult. Most of the clientele at this time of year were Young Turks (heh how I wanted an excuse to add that phrase to a review) and the atmosphere was relaxed but party. The music in...Read More

Restaurant | "Good food but rip-off drinks at Aspendos Star Belkis Restaurant"

Quote:
Our sole meal out of Antalya was taken as part of an all inclusive package deal, which we took as our travelling companion did her knee in and it would prove too difficult to catch buses to view the local area. I always approach organised trip lunches with a heavy heart as they are normally prepared with the minimum of cost and in restaurants that can't often get paying custom in any other way. In truth my thoughts on leaving our restaurant the Star Belkis in Aspendos were a little mixed, but at least I can't knock the food. The restaurant is right on the outskirts of the town of Aspendos, overlooking a pretty spot on the river. In the distance you can see some of the ruins whi...Read More
