“Great Food & Views At Infinity Restaurant.”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Infinity restaurant is nicely positioned on the promenade at the far end of Siteler. Not far from and just below the “Grand Yazici Club Turban” hotel. The views are stunning.
As it would be a bit of a walk down to Infinity from the main road we decided to take a taxi from Club Evin. This cost us 20 lira (£5.70) but was well worth it to save our old legs. However, it did take the driver three attempts and a few questions to find it!
When we left the Club Evin it was rather cold as the clouds had come up and a strong breeze was blowing so we had donned jackets. On arrival at the restaurant however, the sun had come out and it was rather warm.
We said to the waiter standing in the entrance that we wanted a walk first and he offered to take our jackets and hang them up for us. This he did.
The waiting staff were indeed helpful, well trained but not overbearing. They went about their work with a quiet efficiency.
We walked for a while along the prom and back.
Once seated I ordered the usual Efes for me and a glass of red wine for Jean. We told the waiter we were in no hurry to order and he left us alone to sip our drinks and enjoy both the view and the many swallows gliding about catching insects above us. There was even a fledgling perched on a wire being fed by its parents.
We had seriously intended to order from the set menu! Unfortunately they do not have one and so it was the main (only) menu for us.
Eventually we asked for the menu and made our order. Fried calamari as a starter for us to share, beef stroganoff with rice and chips for Jean and lamb chops (3) with just rice for me.
The usual platter of garlic butter, yogurt dip and spicy tomato came with the usual bread. The butter was less greasy than many we have had and had a nice strong garlic flavour, the yogurt tasted fresh and not at all “sharp” and the spicy tomato was obviously homemade. Portions were small but adequate.
The squid came in a nice crisp batter without a hint of oil. It was tender and tasty and once again, for a starter the portion was adequate. We enjoyed it immensely.
I must add here that we have had calamari in Turkey many times and have never had a poor plate of this delicacy. Not so in other countries such as Portugal, Spain, France and the UK where we have been offered tough bits of UFOs. Unidentifiable Fried Objects!
We sat for a while once again watching the swallows and in the fullness of time our “mains” arrived.
Meanwhile I had ordered a raki! He-he!
On Jean’s plate was a good portion of sliced steak, mushrooms and onions in a rich creamy sauce. A little dome of rice, a goodly pile of chips and a bouquet of sautéed fresh vegetables which contained green beans, carrot and courgette. The steak was tender, the sauce rich and creamy, the chips fresh, the rice beautifully cooked and the vegetables just the right texture and doneness.
On my plate was the same dome of excellent rice and vegetables and FOUR (the menu said 3) nice sized chops.
I had asked for these to be cooked “pink” and they were. The top bone of the chop had been removed leaving the meat on just the rib bone. The end of the rib bone was wrapped in foil to make it easy to eat them, as they should be eaten, with the fingers.
They were perfectly cooked, well browned and spiced on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside. I do love good lamb chops and these were the best.
We were too full for desert but I did have a Turkish coffee.
COST:
Efes x 1 = 8 lira
Red wine = 8
Water = 3
Raki = 9
Calamari = 17
Beef Stroganoff = 28
Lamb Chops = 32
Total = 105 lira (£30)
Coffee complementary.
A nice price for an excellent meal.
If you are making a list for your next visit this is one that should be near the top. It is on mine.
Peter & Jean. :o)

“Hyggelig familie restaurant”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Hyggelig restaurant lige ved vandet.
God mad, både vestlig og tyrkiske retter.
Om aftenen ændre stemningen sig til en dancebar, uden at det bliver for meget.
Personalet og meget høflige og er gode til at genkende kunderne og deres behov.
Om aftenen er de meget feststemte, nærmest glade i låget UDEN at det bliver for meget...

Kan KUN anbefale stedet, har kommer der HVERT år de sidste 4-5 år...

ENGLISH:
Cozy restaurant right on the water.
Good food, both Western and Turkish cuisine.
In the evening, the restaurant "change" to a Dancebar, without it becoming too much.
The staff are very polite and are good to recognize customers and their needs.
In the evening they are very festive and they provide a great atmosphere

Can ONLY recommend the place has come to EVERY year for the last 4-5 years ...

“welcomed like family”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

BAck to Infinity again and it is like being a family member who has been away , they are genuinely friendly people who enjoy your company and love to have a laugh , great fun .
It seems that the National Government is trying to clamp down on music and dance bars so they are restricted in some of the entertainment that can go on in particular the staff dance shows but it is funny to see them scatter and when they have gone....................this is right across the resort and will eventually be across all of Turkey according to the Govenment website . Still a great time and great fun holiday , will be back soon

“Fantastic, Class Bar and Restaurant”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Spent one week in Marmaris and met friends in this bar on the beach front. Bar staff fun and friendly, Quality food and service. Great selection of food and drink and the hard working staff go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your visit. They made a lovely cake for my wife's birthday and made the night special for her. Best bar in Marmaris by miles. Thanks to all the staff. Went back a number of times for food and drinks and the staff were brilliant every time. Barmen make a lush Bloody Mary which is very spicy :-)
