Very nice restaurant in Fethiye.

We stumbled across this little paradise after finishing our shopping at Tansas. We took our daughter Kylie there as a birthday treat, she's 11. The restaurant layout and decor is more akin to that of a 5-star hotel restaurant so we were more than pleased to see very reasonably-priced menu (and refreshingly, reductions made for children's orders).I opted for their steak whilst hubby went for the Doner Kebab with Yohurt Sauce. The three kids had fish fingers & chips, spaghetti bolognaise & chicken wings with chips & baked beans. So many restaurants we've visited and the children are left to plunder through a menu that means nothing to them and the food ordered more often than not just goes to waste. Beer and soft drinks were very reasonably priced. Large Efes Beer just 2.5YTL and Cola, Fanta was 2YTL. Our meals all arrived together (that's not always normal in Turkey) and were very well presented. Considering we had opted for the reduced price children's portions, they were more than plentiful.The head chef joined our table to ask if everything was OK. A nice touch and we had nothing to complain about - only praise. Nice background music accompanied the meal - we really don't like loud thumping music that drowns out conversation. There's no rushing around in this restaurant and we were very relaxed. The meal finished, we were all well and truly stuffed. It was a nice surprise when the head waiter, Ramazan brought to our table a birthday cake for Kylie and everyone in the restaurant joined in with a Turkish/English rendition of Happy Birthday Kylie.We learned that one of the waiting staff had gone into town to get the cake whilst we were eating our meal. They even had her name iced on the cake. Not bad eh. The owner insisted on not charging us for the cake despite our protests. We rounded off the meal with a nice Turkish coffee and paid the bill.How much do you think? 77YTL or in sterling (at the time) 28 pounds.So with a bottle of wine, 2 meat main courses and 3 children meals plus soft drinks and coffees a mere 5.50 a head. Now you can see why we like Somine Kebab so much and we think they will do very well if they maintain this level of service and quality of food.We were told they are also opening during the winter months and we may well be tempted to spend our first Christmas holiday in Fethiye this year, providing they can come up with Cranberry Sauce and Parsnips but the kids insist: NO brussell sprouts please!
