A friend and I went for a meal at Charlie's and got ripped off big time... Charlie chatted to us throughout out meal and showed us family photos... We thought that he was really nice and friendly until the bill arrived. It was so overpriced that we questioned it... He somehow managed to convince us that the price was correct... More

Good food but a little overpriced, so typical of Side's many harbour restaurants. Cgeck your bill carefully and make sure that anything you don't ask for is not charged.

had a lovely meal but when the bill came they charged 190tl for a bottle of wine what a load of con artists, when they were confronted about this they got very nasty and said it had to be paid

We ate lunch here and were charged different prices than we were told, and charged 64 Lira for a salad and sauce. DO NOT GO HERE

Making the food took forever and it tasted nothing. It was more expensive than the menu said, and they were unhappy because we didn't tip them enough.

We were accosted outside the restaurant...which is par for the course in tourist places. We actually live in Turkey, so in turn know what to expect with good Turkish service/food/etc. This restaurant provided none of these things. We were travelling with our family and some friends. We just wanted somewhere not overly expensive so that we could eat quickly and... More
