This is a fascinating place to visit! Really lively, busy restaurant where the locals go to eat and visitors are welcome, to. Wide ranging, Turkish style menu : suggest you go to the various counters and take a look at what's on offer. A helpful, english-speaking waiter took us through all the options, and then looked after us well over... More

We had lunch at the Ipek Restaurant in Demre, sitting at a covered table. The restaurant specialized in kebabs and pide. We sampled both and found them tasty, if a bit underseasoned. Half-feral cats thread through our legs, obviously hoping for a handout. One of them scratched or bit one of our companions, breaking the skin.

We were in Demre visiting St Nichols Church, it was past lunchtime & we needed to eat. On a pedestrianised street was Ipek, lots of locals eating there so we thought we'd give it a whirl. Very basic tables & chairs but the Kofté & salad were amazing. The staff were lovely despite speaking no English & had to go... More

I ordered the chicken soup and spicy meatball kabob. I was very pleased with the meal. My wife and others got the gyro which was no where as good as mine. There were many locals here also - a good sign.

What didn't our group eat. Everyone loved their dishes. Some had lamb, others spicy meatballs and others the gyro. They gave us delicious tomato salad, great hot bread too. Fast, friendly service. Do look out for the stray cats running around. Don't feed them while you are eating.

Not only did we have a good quality meal here, but the staff did their best to make us welcome. When I asked if they had any fish, they rang out and had some specially delivered for me! Simple surroundings but great food and service make this a great place to visit.

I've eaten at the Ipek on several occasions with my groups. But service has usually been slow and the bathrooms are of poor quality. On this recent trip our film crew ate at the nearby Gaziantep Restaurant (not listed in Trip Advisor as a choice) where service and restrooms are much better. In fact, we enjoyed the food (great prices... More

A real Turkish restaurant situated in the middle of the city. It was suggested to us by the receptionist in our hotel/ We were not disappointed..really good traditional food...choose your own meet and tell them how you would like it cooked. Great value for money.

Fresh, delicious, Turkish food - reasonably priced. Great service from the staff. Made us feel most welcome and went the extra mile to make one of our party's night by giving her a gift on her birthday.

We went here for out first non-inclusive night from the Neilson resort down the road. A taxi to/from cost 15TL each way. Location Demre isn't really a tourist town, and there isn't exactly a huge choice of restaurants and the ones that are there all seem to be priced similarly and have a similar menu.
