Second year returning to shades, we have been in almost every day. Dennis and George are most welcoming and we have had many a great night enjoying their company! Food is great and they make a mean long island ice tea!

Stopped here for a drink one day when out walking, had a lovely strawberry Daiquiri and got talking to the owner. He talked us into buying tickets for the Turkish night which is held once a fortnight. So gald he did, fantastic night - excellent food with brilliant entetainment.

We visited Shades on Deniz the proprietors birthday. We experienced great service and conversation with our host. There is a good selection of drinks and food on offer. Situated in Ovacik on the main road there are Turkish nights on Saturdays to enjoy.

We have visited Ovacik a few times now and a visit wouldn't be complete without a trip to see Deniz and the team at Shades!! Great food, fantastic people, great atmosphere and just always a good time. The Turkish night is highly recommended too. Thank you Deniz and everyone - see you next time we are back in beautiful Ovacik!!
