A group of 5 of us with a fussy 5 year old food fantastic and the staff are top rate. The child's menu has a Disney theme and we ordered a meze starter for all, a Mickey Mouse (Chicken fingers and chips) and the waiters recommendation of a selection of different meat and chicken and beef pot kebab. When the... More

Had to go here after reading about it here on tripadvisor but we also got tipped of by our travel agency and it was for sure well worth it. Great service, good selection of local food, nice wines but not that many though. Fell some leafs and other rubbish from the threes above so just be aware of that depending... More

We had read the reviews and sort out this little treasure. Set next to the ruins of the old baths it had a great ambience, lovely service and wonderful food.. George and the team look after your every need without imposing, friendly and genuine. The chiefs cook with locally sourced ingredients and the "chateaubriand" has to be tried. We had... More

Last week we visited Ocakbasi. I've not reviewed it this year and we have eaten there numerous times. It has always been absolutely fantastic. The food (spiced chicken casserole, meatballs truly define) the service, the friendship, the setting, is beyond outstanding. How anyone can give this restaurant a 1 star review is beyond me - See last week's nonsensical "review".... More

Absolutely delicious genuine Turkish food. We ate the mixed mezze and then the Ottoman Kebab. Both were absolutely delicious. Great service, very attentive staff, nothing was too much trouble and our glasses were never empty. The mezze was an excellent mix of dishes, accompanied by Turkish bread. The houmous was particularly good. The ottoman kebab was out of this world... More

We came here after being fed up with the all-inclusive hotel food and reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. And I'm glad we did, because this restaurant was the best experience we had during our stay in Side. The atmosphere, location, service and of course the food itself were superb! We enjoyed a selection of meze for starters and seafood... More
