Description: ''The Best Turkish Cuisine in Side''
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We have visited several restaurants in Side. The menu is about the same. There is nothing special about Ocakbasi. However, the price is higher compared to similar places. Besides, they do not provide you with a complementary starter as in other places but rather offer you a separate dish. Therefore, do not be surprise if your find your bill higher than you expected. I would advise you to ask if the starter is included in the bill or not. The quality of food is OK but not fantastic. We had a cheap lunch on a boat, which was included into a trip to Manavgat, and the fish was much better than in Ocakbasi.

This is the best restaurant in Side and the surrounding area. The food is delicious and authentic. The absolutly best dishes are the meze. You can put together your own mixed meze plate or you let the staff do the work. But whatever you do, you have to try the hummus. It is possible, that it is the best hummus in Turkey.
The main dishes are also worth a visit. Everything that we had, where perfectly cooked and spiced.
And laser but not least a word about the staff: Everybody is very friendly and service oriented. From the first moment on we felt as friends and not as guests.
