Prices in Side

Hi myself and my family would like to try Side next year for 2 weeks in August. We have been to most other places and fancy a change. I am just a bit concerned as talking to a few people they have said how expensive they find Side saying it is not far behind Greece. We've been told that most bars/restaurants only like to take Euros and most drinks cost around 6 euros each!

Can anyone please give me an honest opinion of prices in bars/restaurants please and if they are happy to take lira?

Many thanks for your help!

Side is no more expensive than anywhere else in Turkey - an Efes beer is normally 6 TL but along the promenade front is 8 TL, although you can get it at Kosem Restaurant for just 4 TL - cocktails are around 8 to 10 TL normally.

Yes - they are more than happy to take TL. I never ever pay in Euros as you can get a much better rate of exchange for TL to £1 - now in Side it is 2.85 TL to £1 at the banks - best to change UK cash when you arrive in Side to get the better rates.

The price of a meal out can be anything from 3 TL for a Lamachun which is like a floppy pizza with mincemeat, onions, green peppers and tomatoes or 25 TL for a full steak meal.

I have been all over Turkey and love Side the best. I feel sure you will like it too. For further information on trips, restaurants etc look to top of this page on the right Top Questions About Side and below that are answers to a lot of questions.
