Visited here last night after it being recommended by a friend and I have to say that it was a very nice place to visit and eat.
The setting is very tranquil as you are sat beside the dimly lit pool of the hotel, there are only a handful of tables which adds to the experience so the waiting staff are very attentive but not intrusive.
It is evident that all the food is cooked fresh and makes s change from everything being served with chips.
All this added up to make the Yengec a great place to eat and relax, we will certainly visit next year to enjoy this lovely little restaurant.
Have been frequenting this lovely restaurant for 3 years now, just came back last week and already eaten here 3 times. The food is GORGEOUS , the ambience is just heavenly and there is nothing to fault this family run restaurant in any way.
Your evening starts with a heartfelt greeting from the owner, Richard, followed by his daughter Lucy with the daily specials being spelt out for your pleasure in all their glory.
Be warned, don't spend too long on the menu as the daily specials are always captivating.
The tables are set around the lovely pool and even the bread basket is a delight.
All the meals I have ever had are of the highest and tastiest quality... Could just linger here forever! But when it comes to dessert, leave a bit of space as there is a daily changing dessert menu all home made by Lucy's mum Diane who I could easily kidnap and take back to the UK with me if it wasn't for worries about my waistline. Couldn't even begin to list them all but all I can say is leave a bit of space so you can partake in one of these delights...
If I could take just one restaurant on a desert island hideaway it would be this one. Honestly. And I have eaten in 5 star restaurants worldwide. There is just something so special about this place. But lots of people know about Yengec Magic so I would advise you to book in advance as they get vey busy and you can't just expect to drop by.
A million zillion star review for this gem of a restaurant from me.
My wife and I were invited to join a group of friends at the restaurant of this hotel and were picked up and taken there by taxi.
I had no real knowledge of where I was but suddenly found that we had been transported from a built up area to a rural site surrounded by trees although only minutes from the main road.
We dined in the open air around the pool.
The restaurant's 'specials' were on a blackboard which was brought around to the tables and explained to us in addition to the usual menu.
The food was superb.
The service was superb. With special mention to Omar.
The location was superb.
A slight breeze got up which some diners found cold.
All soft southerners. 😀😀
Omar sprung into action getting wraps for the afflicted.
All in all one of the best dining experiences we have had.
I have to mention the entertainment provided by 'Henry' the robot swimming pool cleaner. Fascinating to watch.
I ate here with my family and in laws whilst we were on holiday last week and went there to celebrate my mums birthday. We had heard great reviews and they didn't let us down at all. Amazing setting for the resturant out in the gardens by a lovely pool which you can use. The staff were all very helpful and welcoming. The food was amazing with a great selection of traditional turkish dishes as well as many other options to chose from. It was very well priced for drinks and food and the owners had a large table decorated for my mum and had made her a cake ( delicious). Over all great food, good prices , very friendly staff and amazing location; definitely a must. Just a tip book before you go to save disappointment.
I may have said I've just visited but it was actually a while back so please forgive me, just catching up with my many reviews.
This boutique hotel come restaurant is a jewel in the Fethiye / Olu Deniz area's crown. I'm reluctant to advertise it's presence as it'll make it harder to get a reservation.
Located on the quiet lower road through Ovacik (almost behind AES Club Hotel), Hotel Yengec appears from the road to be a rather nice Villa but, as you head up the (in our case) lamp lit path, you turn a little to the left and emerge onto their pool area which in the evenings doubles as a rather lovely waiting area for the restaurant, replete with comfy chairs and a firepit. On entering, we were greeted by the owner warmly and offered wine without so much as a look at the menu (it was a lovely red and not dauntingly priced either). We sat to sip our drinks for a few minutes around the fire and had a pleasant chat with some of the other guests awaiting tables. Then the hostess (the owners daughter, Lucy? Might be wrong as memory fails me now) did a lovely personal job of talking us through the menu and helping us pick what to eat.
Once at our table, the food came promptly and our glasses were always full. The chefs mezze to start was interestingly varied and tasty, recommended though there are many tempting starters to try. For main course, the gf had a fillet steak which I am reliably informed was 'heavenly' (and from the little I tried I cannot refute) and I had what I think was called Hakan's (the head chef and Lucys' husband?) mixed grill, which had any number of Turkish style meats with various marinades and sides and I must say was delicious. Feeling a little engorged (and very pleased) we decided to share a homemade cheese cake which needless to say was rich and light and a fitting end to a lovely meal.
In summary, I would visit the area again just to have an excuse to eat at this lovely establishment. Heartily recommended!
