Warning for Wine Drinkers

Be sure to ask EXACTLY how much a bottle of wine you desire is. I asked for a bottle of 'house' rose and got stung for 100 lira (apparently house meant the best they had (hmm)!) Many wine lists (especially in higher-end restaurants) do not show prices so make sure you ask. My bottle of wine was rather nice, however perhaps not '£38 in Turkey' nice. Never mind hey? A relatively cheap lesson, well learnt I reckon!

Yes, wine is very expensive in Side - so what we do is buy a bottle at the mini market and drink that BEFORE we go out - Kanver is one of the best and only 8 TL per bottle - red or white -

8 TL is the average price for a GLASS of wine if you go out to the restaurants.

35 TL is about £14

40 TL is about £16

- so that's why we drink a bottle at home first for just

8 TL = £3.50

about £14- £16 a bottle which works out at less than £3 a glass so its still cheaper than buying a house wine by the glass.
