Icmeler - the return

We returned to Icmeler last week for a second holiday in the town and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We visited Marmaris a couple of times and Turunc where there is a SMALL market on Mondays and had a relaxing time. We ate out at

CHAMPAGNE - excellent food and lovely service from "Tony Macaroni" !!!!!!

AMIGOS - Nice meal not as good as above but very passable nontheless.

DENIZ KAPISI - View to die for over the bay on the top deck. Wonderful starters of stuffed mushrooms and Turkish Meze but beware the starters were BIG platefuls and nice mains but a bit spoilt because we had eaten too much already

MANDOLIN - recommended to us by Icmeler old timers (couple who had been to Icmeler 34 times) and they got it right. Lovely food good service and a nice spot to watch the world go by

MAJESTIC - The best meal we had all week. Really tasty I think It was called an URFA kebab really nice. Entertainment started at half nine so we stayed for a couple and thoroughly enjoyed the night.

HANEDANS - Probably spelt it wrong but we decided on authentic Turkish for our last night. Enjoyable but rather too spicy for me. I can see the difference from what I call the tourist restaurants to the authentic Turkish ones. I ate mostly Turkish food in all the above but a big difference in hanedans. Not one to take kids to unless they like spices but an experience nevertheless.

We lunched at Dream 3 Bells - nice, at Romeo and Juliet - not so nice at Mermaid in turunc - rather good and at YOLO which was very good.

Best bars for us - Kaktus, Deja Vu, Buffalo, Wonder Bar and Friends

Icmeler is still a lovely place to visit but does seem to be suffering from the mayors clean up campaign. I hope it doesn't loose its family friendliness. We will return in a few years time but for the next couple of years it is shorter flights and covering the Greek and Spanish isles we haven't been to yet.

Enjoy your hols everyone

Thank you LenL for taking the time to write an informative review. I have also just returned from Icmeler which I found was quieter than usual and with a noticeable police presence. It did not affect my holiday or my opinion of Icmeler although I did speak to one young couple who said they would not return as there was not enough nightlife for them. I suppose we are all looking for different things from a holiday and only time will tell how the changes will affect tourism in Icmeler.
