The Oasis bar and restaurant is in the Armutalan area of Marmaris. Near the Havana bar, September bar and next to A&S Travel. It is also just a short walk from our hotel the Club Evin.
It is just one of many small bar/restaurants in the area and is situated on a corner. There is no inside seating which means you are, at the most, three tables away from a road!
Drinks: when we ordered our drinks we were told that we would get two for the price of one; so BOGOF is not dead it is just hiding a little!
The downside with this is that they said they would bring both drinks at the same time, so if you are a slow drinker the second drink gets warm. However, I have been told since that if we had stressed that we wanted them one at a time this would have been done.
On the other hand, unless you are a big drinker there is little saving!!!
Jean ordered a glass of rosé. She said it was nice but not particularly strong. Still she does not like strong drinks so this was OK.
I ordered vodka tonic. My two drinks were of good size and seemed to contain a reasonable amount of alcohol. They were, for me, just about right. We have had both of these drinks a couple of times on our holiday and each had cost us 8 lira. These (non-BOGOF) drinks were 15 lira for the two. So a saving of only ½ lira per glass. Big drinkers will obviously make on this but it is really designed so that the restaurant sells you more drinks than you would perhaps want!
Food: The restaurant menu contains a page of “special” offers which I will write down here.
Each meal comes with a choice of any soup (4 on the menu), OR garlic mushrooms OR garlic bread OR cheese roll OR onion rings.
A glass of beer OR a soft drink OR a glass of wine OR a cocktail.
A pudding. I did not have this and have forgotten the choices. Sorry!
The main dishes with these items are:
Any steak meal except T-bone or plank @ 34 lira.
Any chicken meal @ 24 lira.
Any pasta meal @ 22 lira.
Any pizza meal @ 22 lira.
You also get the usual bread and dips. Spicy tomato, a thick yogurt and garlic and a thick yogurt and herb.
I ordered the chicken soup, which was a generous bowl full of thick, tasty soup with quite a few pieces of tender chicken floating in it. From a packet with the chicken added? I am not sure but suspect that was the case. But very nice for all that.
A spicy pizza. This came well cooked with a nice thin and crispy crust. It was about 10 inches in diameter. So not huge but a good single portion.
The toppings were a generous portion of nice (stringy) cheese, some chopped up jalapenos, slices of spicy sausage and a generous sprinkling of chilli flakes. It was very nice and, for me, big enough that I did not have room for the pudding.
Jean ordered from the main menu. A steak pie which was advertised as coming with vegetables and mashed potatoes.
When it arrived it was made in a (roughly) six inch diameter ovenware pot. The pastry was nice and the pie was full of cubes of lean beef which were (almost) tender. Jean said it was a little chewy but not enough to be a problem. The gravy it contained was rich and fragrant. On the plate with the pie was the promised vegetables, carrot and courgette (baby marrow) and a medium portion of mash. Also on the plate was a good portion of nicely cooked chips and two huge potato wedges which were delicious. (I tried ½ of one of these and it was very good). Jean enjoyed her meal but was unable to finish it. Not an uncommon occurrence!
I did not want my free drink so Jean had an extra glass of rosé.
I finished with a large mug of Nescafe.
So drinks: Value For Money (VFM) barely.
Set meal: VFM yes very much so.
2 x Rosé = 15 lira
2 vodka tonic = 15 lira
1 x steak pie = 22 lira
1 x pizza special meal (Set meal) 22 lira
1 x coffee complementary.
Meal total = 74 lira (£21.14)
Staff very smart in matching t-shirts and very welcoming.
Service good and perhaps a little too quick for us as we like to take our time. But we did not tell them this and I think they are used to customers that want to eat fast!
So, all in all, a good, satisfactory meal at a very good price.
They also do a Sunday lunch, which although we did not try, I list here for you.
Soup, choice of beef, chicken or lamb. Yorkshire pudding, roast and mashed potatoes and vegetables. Apple pie with ice cream OR custard.
Total 24 lira. (£6.85)
We hope this helps.
