“Not a good experience”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

I visited this restaurant with three friends. After we had ordered it took ages and ages for the meals to arrive, despite there being hardly anyone in the restaurant. I wasn't feeling too well so only had soup and ice cream which actually was quite nice. However my friends were very dissappointed in their meals. One had steak and queried if it was beef as the texture of it didn't look right. The staff member she spoke to about it wasn't very obliging and went to great lengths to explain that their meat is fresh and that they get it from MIGROS! We found it strange that they were buying meat from the local supermarket.

“Great food every visit”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

We ate here most days and never had a bad meal. You get a free breakfast (full english large and lovely) for every 2 people that have an evening meal. First drinks free to tempt you in. Staff are very friendly and helpful led by the manager "Al Pacino". You will be asked if you'd like to come back in the evening but don't be afraid just to say no thanks. We did eat at other places but to be fair the meals were large, delicious and cheaper here too. Try the special set meal deal, 5 courses for 30TL - any steak. I recommend the Turkish dishes too, the Ottoman Special and Teste Kebabs were out of this world as was the Chateau Briand.

“Lovely Food But Too In Your Face”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Our first morning as two couples in Icmeler we decided to try the breakfast at the Red Lion Restaurant, the breakfast was very good but the freshly squeezed orange juice was very warm. While trying to eat the breakfast we where constantly harassed to come back for dinner and finally they offered us a free cocktail each if we returned that night.
We did return that night for a meal and it was also very good but we where still bombarded with offers to come back next day, we tried to explain that we wanted to try several restaurants but yet again offered free gimmicks to keep us coming back.
One word of advice, do not buy tickets for open the box as they are awful prizes.
There is a chance of wining 320tlr if you choose the right key but we spoke to people at our hotel and no one had won all week and there was only meant to be 5 keys left when we went the first night.
Their draw is meant to take place at 10pm but they drag it out until 11.30pm to sell more tickets and also more drinks.
Nice food, if the was no hassle I would give it a five

“Free breakfast!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We tried the Red Lion as they offered us a great deal, our son who is 11 ate free from the childrens menu that evening and as there were 5 of us they offered us 2 free breakfasts the following morning. They offered a fifa tournament on playstation for the kids the following lunchtime which our son thoroughly enjoyed. We had our free breakfasts not expecting too much but when it came out it was a full english breakfast and was very nice. Well worth a visit.
