Got back from Icmeler a couple of weeks ago - first visit and it won't be the last. What a lovely relaxing place and now a toss up for me as to whether I enjoyed Hisaronu or Icmeler the most. We stayed at the Moonlight Apts which were a little way out but extremely nice. Staff were excellent we had a nice apt overlooking the smaller pool and we couldn't fault the Moonlight.
We ate at a different place every night and this is what we thought
FLORIDA - the worst of the week but still very acceptable so you will guess that we found the standard high
CHEF - very very nice food (anatolian special superb), lovely feel to the place but the wine was on the expensive side
HARRYS - mixed grill for two was really a mixed grill for 4. Very nice indeed.
LIGHTHOUSE - Disappointing. We looked forward to going here most of the week. We did pick a busy night but were disappointed to wait nearly an hour for food (the couple next to us waited over an hour). When the food came it was nice and tasty but fairly sparse on the plate compared to other places. All in all not a good experience perhaps we caught them on a bad night
KEREM - What can i say about this lovely little restaurant. 11 out of 10 for everything. The food typical turkish cuisine was excellent, the lady looking after everyone was so polite and keen to please that it just made the night go perfectly. I would recommend anyone to seek out this little place on the canal it is the one that looks like someones house. Fantastic.
CUPIDS - Very pleasant indeed. Nice food and friendly staff made it another good night.
FRIAR TUCK - On our last night we were leaving at 8-30pm so we popped down for some home cooking at Friar Tucks. Fish and chips lovely mushy peas to die for.
On the whole super food and lovely restaurants.
Some nice bars to try out - if you like 60's 70's and 80's music try Friends or Linekers or the nicest bar we found which was called Kaktos or Oscars depending on which sign you saw first. Oscars is set back a little at the top of the square and is a lovely little laid back bar worthy of as visit. Linekers is good but be aware that it is exactly the same format and the same songs in the same order almost every night ( i didn't think they were trying very hard and just expected people to fall in because of the name) Friends the liveliest and a nice relaxed atmosphere.
Would I go back - you betcha
