“Turkey is right here, at the "Havuzbaşı" Restaurant!”
Reviewed 2 February 2013 via mobile

Are you on an all-inclusive vacation in the Kemer area? You should get out of it one day! Rent a car and go to Ulupinar village. The "Havuzbaşı" is a typical turkish restaurant. It's speciality is trout from the wood oven. So delicious! They serve it in a set up menu with traditional meze, salad, and hot side dishes.
For all, who don't like fish, there is a variety of lamb and chicken dishes. Or ask about quails, they are fantastic!
Mr. Ramadan, the owner, tries to keep the traditions of the turkish hospitality.
The place is so unique and rustique and has an amazing green garden to eat outside in summer. Children love it! In winter there is a cosy fire place you can sit around.
We love this restaurant and go there, when ever we are in that area!

“floating on top of the world!”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

We have eaten several times at the Havuzbasi restaurant and always had excellent food in the wonderful setting. This year we were allocated a table on a floating platform in one of the fish pools - perfectly stabel except when the waiters were bringing us the next intalment of the feast. We had meze to start, including wonderful sizzling hot garlic mushrooms and fresh pide style bread fresh from the clay overn. Main course was trout [what else in a trout farm?] served simply cooked with some spices and lemon. such a lovely place, we are already looking forward to our next trip in 2013.
