After a week of eating good and average Turkish quisine we visited Vanilla. The food was awesome and we didn't want the meal to end. The restaurant has a very chic and relaxed atmosphere. A must if you are looking for something special.

When you are in Antalya make sure to visit Vanilla Lounge. Superb food, great service and wonderful decor. Book if you want to eat after 7pm it's always full! With good reason.
