I went to Cafe Del-Mar today. It's raining, so the owner was smoking inside, meaning the stench of cigarette smoke was overwhelming. Anyway, this is Turkey, so what can you do? I ordered eggplant stuffed with meat and a soda. They brought eggplant stuffed with rice which was so undercooked it was crunchy and inedible. When I questioned the lack... More

we had a lovely diner here with a great view over the mesapotanie. Besides I had some medical problems, the owner drove my girlfriend all the way to town to get me some medicine. Very, very friendly!

For two nights in a row I ate wonderful vegetarian food, sometimes hard to get in turkey, the family was also very helpfull and welcome. It is a go place for single travelers to unwind admiring the view and have chat.

Fabulous quirky bar/restaurant. We discovered it early morning on our way to the museum, and stopped and had a frothy Ayran and a delicious iced creamy vanilla coffee and decided to return for the dinner in the evening. Fabulous views across the plain, friendly hard working staff and owner who were all very welcoming and charming. Food was delicious and... More

The negative review from "someone who has been living in Turkey, and from UK indeed" is wrong. Mardin is not repreentative of other parts of Turkey, and certainly cannot be compared with anywhere in the UK. The facts are that in the end most tourists and others usually visit the Del Mar. It is known for its friendliness, and a... More

As someone who has been living in Turkey for a while, I didn't find the food here very impressive at all, just average. The wine was absolutely dreadful, like vinegar, and a whopping 15 lira a glass. I would really not recommend this place and do not understand the gushing reviews here!

Restaurant Del Mar in Mardin, Turkey, is a wonderful place with good food and a nice décor. The owner and his sons, all working in Del-Mar, are wonderful people and they all speak English. However it is their father (the owner) who is really a special person. But all staff is very nice. The lentil soup is a must and... More
