“Fantastic food, lovely setting, charming hosts”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

Had a lovely lunch at this wonderful restaurant run by Bilal and his charming English wife
Sarnic is situated at the foot of the ruins of Kaya koy; up a little dirt track you will find a the door way into Sarnic’s cobbled garden set amounts leafy trees and fragrant flowers.
The setting is quite magical and the food excellent. The array of mezes is tantalising and different from the usual offering and delicious. Though specialising in vegetarian dishes it caters for meat eaters with well-cooked tasty dishes.
We started with the mixed meze plate, umm lovely, I had the only meat dish of our group Ismail (or something like that) Kebab, meat marinated and cooked wrapped in aubergine, served with rice – absolutely tasty. The cheese rolls were to die. The meal for 3 with beer and a bottle of wine was 118 YTL. Excellent value in a fantastic setting, highly recommended.

“An Oasais of Calm”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

A cool shaded place to have a welcome break on a hot day. We visit the Fethiye area two or three times a year and always eat here at least once on each trip.The food (and wine) is excellent - fresh and well cooked and the meze plate is the best we have tasted in Turkey - great value too. One plate costing 18 Lira will feed two with food left over.The owners are a young couple from Ankara and they are having their first baby in August 2013. They are utterly delightful - lovely helpful people who add the icing to a superb restaurant 'cake'. A 'must visit' if you are in the area.

“Delightful lunch in pretty & rural, shady setting, just outside Kaya”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

We were exploring Kaya in early May 2013 when we found Sarnic, tucked away up a little lane. Being hot, hungry & thirsty after a couple of hours walking, we found a lovely table in dappled shade & really enjoyed a delicious light lunch & couple of drinks. we were in a leafy little oasis & it was just lovely.The owner(?) told us that soon they would be having regular Music evenings with Turkish music or Opera. I think that would be really atmospheric & romantic & hope when we return ( as we certainly will) we can catch such an evening. If you go, I do hope you enjoy the ambience as well as the food!!

We've eaten at loads of places in Turkey and this is the best we have had by a country mile. The setting is magical and the food is fantastic.

“tasteful and friendly”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

Have stayed in the Kaya valley on and off for over 6 years but never visited this tucked away charming garden restaurant until August this year. It only needed one visit and after that we became regulars. The family is run by a husband and wife and it is their first year there. All I can say is that I hope they will be there next year as the food and service was extremely good. They were very welcoming but without being intrusive which we really liked. If you are looking for good food, a lovely atmosphere and setting then you will find this place hard to beat.
