Normally I don't review the restaurants I visit whilst on holiday, but this magical place really merits a mention!
After finding Meryem Yemek Evi, we couldn't pull ourselves away. At lunch time, the chef makes a different meal every day, all traditional turkish dishes - all fresh and homemade! Always a winner when the place is also frequented by the Turkish people themselves. Salad is offered on the house with lunch as well as apple/turkish tea and coffee. The average lunch was between 30 and 40 lira, which is an absolute bargain for the massive meal you get!
Dinner is also cheap and wonderful, the set menus include meze platters and drink and are priced between 30-50 lira dependant on your choice of main course.
Never once did the food let us down, good traditional REAL turkish food!
The staff...well they couldn't be more helpful! Ali and Mert are the most helpful and friendly staff, and would literally bend over backwards to allow you the most fantastic experience! For example - I asked for baklava which they didn't have, however the boys were more than happy to go and pick up some and bring it back, without even mentioning it! Beyond the call of duty!
The restaurant is located just by the bank and the fountain/square - across from Romance Palace.
This place is really not to be missed, home one day and wishing the boys were here to make my lunch and dinner. Can't wait to return on my next visit.
Not to be missed, an absolute gem of a place! You will not be left disappointed.
