“FANTASTIC!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

I cannot praise this restaurant highly enough. This is real Turkish food at its very best. Ayse and Kazim really are great hosts, they go out of their way to make sure that everything is perfect for you. There is not much that I can add to other reviews but you absolutely have to try this place. Don’t forget that you need to book in a morning to ensure there is a table free that night.

“Great value home cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

Great value, tasty 3-course evening meal. Much preferred the Akay with its no-menu one well-prepared flavoursome 'dish of the day' to some of the other Patara restaurants with overly long ambitious menus and hastily prepared mediocre meals.

“FABULOUS FRESH FOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2012

The Akay Pension Restaurant is unusual in that there is no menu! Do not let that put you off, this place is fabulous - we ended up going there three times in one week!

Each evening you eat the meal of the day which will include a very fresh salad, bread, a main course and a desert. You can also buy beer, wine and soft drinks.

The food is brilliantly cooked by Ayse - fresh ingredients here - this is not "commercial" cooking, this is "home" cooking at its very best. Everything was absolutely delicious!

Kazim and Ayse really are magnificent hosts and the food can not be bettered! This is true quality food and we really would reccomend it!

“Excellent homemade food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

We have just returned from a week in Patara. Had to tell you that we were a bit sceptical about the food but once we had found Akay Pension that was it. The food here was excellent. TIt was a treat to go to a restuarant and not be faced with a vast menu and which was pre-cooked frozen meals. Although Kasim's wife only cooked one dish per day it was fresh, mouthwatering and very tasty and traditional. All the produce used was seasonal and whatever was available that day. Both Kasim and his wife were very friendly with always a smile to welcome you. We would certainly go back when visiting Patara next year.
