Some reviewers wrote that it is overrated and expensive. But I can assure you, it is not overrated, just very good restaurant for frequent dining.
I visited the restaurant with my
wife for a dinner during an all-inclusive beach resort Holiday. We were not staying in Antalya, we drove almost two hours, due to faulty address in GPS, struggled in narrow streets of old town (kale ici). A few times, we were about to give up.
After a call to restaurant we understood that the address in GPS is wrong (tele atlas of course). When we arrived in parking, my wife said, looking at the cars, "may be it is expensive than we thought" and I answered "what is wrong with our BMW 5.20d automatic?" (We had rented with 50% discount, and possibly they are doing the same discount for everyone).
When we are passing through our reserved table, I noticed a reservation for Mr. Igor S... and family, and after we sit our table they arrived. I assumed him as a Russian oligarch with his family. Really, he was looking like an actor from a James Bond movie, tall and athletic. His wife was even longer, younger and blonde of course.
Then I gazed other close tables to judge customer profile. A pharmacy company was having a dinner after training of possibly new dealers. They were a very large group, had paper note blocks, and discussing about training. At another table four businessmen (two Turkish and two possibly Russian) were discussing construction market in Russia in English. Yet another table, a young couple were dining with a table covered of flower leaves, possible an anniversary. And finally a religiously closed women dining with her white hairred husband. The husband (with a mustache similar of Cemaat people) possibly misunderstand my interest around and may be thought I am against of their appearance. There are other family tables as well. All of them except company dinners, possibly were not part of middle class.
It has a beautiful Antalya sea view and in a green quiet park. It was peaceful, relaxing and totally amazing atmosphere.
When we received the menu, I didn't believe that it is cheaper than middle to upper restaurant chains in Istanbul. In Istanbul, Midpoint, Kosebasi or Kasibeyaz are reasonable frequent dining options (for me) and 7 Mehmet was cheaper than these.
Waiters are cold? No. But not hot (!) either; really professional, kind and assisting well enough with the menu if you know how to communicate.
My wife changed the main course after my intervention but her previous choice came, and I asked not to return after tasting it. It was meatballs under sauce with yoghourt. The course may known as Manisa Kebabi in Manisa or Balaban in Eskisehir. It is a dish of Mehmet Yasin style, however it was wonderful.
Also my dish had a wonderful rice (ic pilav) as side dish and the meat was superior than I can eat in Istanbul restaurants. All starters what we had ordered by the help of waiter were also perfect.
As a result we paid total 50 euro as a couple for two main courses, 3 starters, salad, deserts and even Raki.
Wonderful atmosphere, very delicious food and mainstream prices.
Definitely neither overrated nor expensive. Strongly suggested.
