“Set Meal At The Oasis”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

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.
Peter & Jean. :o)

“Great Service, Great Food!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Came here after a nice long walk around Marmaris, feeling very hungry!

We ordered the special deal where you get starters, meze, a main and a drink for around 25Lira (£7!).

Free wifi, like many of the places in Marmaris, which is really handy for sending emails back home!

Great service from all, especially the top two men, Tom and Steve who come and have a nice chat with you.

We both ordered the exact same! Mushroom soup, garlic bread, garlic mushrooms and the salmon pasta, with a 50cl bottle of Efes too! The salmon pasta was especially tasty!

Everything was beautifully cooked, the music was great (just background noise really, so you could still chat) and the location great too for watching the world go by.

We came back another day for a full english, fresh orange juice and eggs on toast, all beautiful again!
Loved it!

“Fantastic restaurant/bar”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We stayed in Marmaris for a week from 1st June and made good use of the Oasis.
The food, drinks are reasonably priced and great, also cocktails are bogof so wife was well happy.
The staff cannot do enough for you, we went for brekkie a little early so one guy phoned the chef at home and told him to hurry up. He did too.
Do not miss this wee gem in the heart of Marmaris, you wont regret it.

“fantastic food and great value”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Visit oasis bar a few times with a great friend during my extended stay in marmaris, food was great and very good value for money drinks buy one get one free even cocktails and may I say they were very strong not like some drinks you get in marmaris. Also staff are very friendly and welcoming and do not watch over you or keep pestering people like other bars overall a very pleasent friendly place will definitely visit again
