We found this place by accident, what a gem we found ! A real Turkish Taverna with all the trimmings that go with it. We ordered from the menu, and were pleasantly surprised (and a bemised) at the amount of food we had on the table BEFORE our order even arrived ! Freshly cooked flatbreads - Real Flatbreads - charcoal cooked peppers, tomatoes, cucumber and a tomatoey dish that we still don't know what it consisted of, but which was sooo tasty.. All this, then our food arrived.... The biggest lamb pieces on the lamb shish and the chicken shis !
Biggest portions of food ever and all this in one of the cheapest restaurants we ate at in Marmaris.
98% of the patrons were Turkish so we knew we were in the right place !
Very busy, the service was great, and the food freshly cooked for us.
A real find.

after one week of average food we were absolutely delighted when we found Kervan Ocakbasi. We went here five out of 7 of our last nights. We could not believe the value for money it was fantastic. Service was great and food was out of this world. It was busy with locacl, my opinion of a good sign and were so quick on serving.

The drinks were reasonably priced and the food was particularly cheap. I orderd a variety of mains and tried lots of the meze dishes could not fault any of them. Please dont go to marmaris and not give this restaurant a try. It is a perfect treat.

Kervan Ocakbasi, this restaurant is abit out of the was and it’s probably for the best...what a waste of time! Very cheap food, I mean really cheap, but it all tasted bland with no flavour. I asked for Iskender Kebab, they gave me shish kebab with a bowl of warm tomato juice on the side...seriously! WE ordered the lamb stick, these could have been really good if they had some flavour. Ordered some meze dishes, although clearly one was Humous, another Tzatziki, another babaganoush, another taramaslata and few other colourful dishes, honestly they all tasted the same. We played a game where we closed our eyes, tasted the randomly trying to guess what we had tasted, we all got it wrong as they all taste the same!!! If other restaurants can make amazing dishes that taste Ridonk(I know that’s not a real word), how did these guys get it sooooo wrong!??! We were really excited about eating here, but I had to slap myself as we left for picking so poorly. The slap left a mark and I deserved it.

We were recommended this restaurant by Liz from the local Turkish Bath, who has lived there 20+ years and we were not disappointed. The food is fab and we ate there 3 times (even though we were at an all inclusive hotel!!!). We had been recommended to have the pomegranate and walnut salad and it was amazing. There is a huge amount of extra foodie rice, vegetable, breads, so make sure you go when you're hungry!! Everything we tasted was gorgeous. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and would go back if we visit the area again.
