Great spot for a beer and to practice your Turkish. Warm, friendly and fills up on the weekend. Tucked away and feels remarkably tourist free.

Amazon is very close to where we are staying (serenity cottage ) yet we only noticed it on our last day but one. There is the restaurant with tables inside , tables on the sidewalk and finally tables in a magical garden , which is nicely shaded from the overhead sun. We asked for a menu which we received without the usual hard sell. We were rather late for lunch . My wife had spaghetti and I had chicken Sniitchel with fries. Bread was provided with olive oil. The fries were somewhat soggy (not uncommon in turkey ) but the rest of the food was nicely cooked. There was quite a varied choice on the menu all at reasonable pricing. When it came to paying we were surprised that only cash is taken. We did not have enough cash but they were happy to take euro and what was a pleasant surprise they provided euros in exchange. Certainly worth a visit

My boyfriend and I went there after reading the reviews. We went for dinner and ate on the sidewalk. I had the amazon special and he had the pepper steak, we shared the Greek salad. The salad was in a pool of dressing, but it did have fresh and delicious vegetables and cheese. Both of our entrees were "just ok". It was nothing spectacular, extremely overrated is how we both felt.

We ate here several times - in the garden across the road from the main restaurant. Service was very pleasant indeed and much less pushy than most other places. The mixed meze were delicious and varied from day to day. Their home-grown olives were delicious. The meat dishes were on the large side for us.

Had dinner here twice. Food was very good but the restaurant was very cold and dark. The second time we went our meals came with plain boiled spaghetti rather than vegetables which was very shocking.
