This restaurant with typical Turkish cuisine offers high quality food and a very friendly service. All food is made freshly, some of it in the oven right before one's eyes. The taste is good and the portions generous. The best is, however, its homemade baklava - not very sweet and delicious - a must try!

Watching the owner making "pancakes"...rolling out the dough she was so focused and intent that we were amazed at the dexterity involved in her food making. We loved watching her deftly throw the fragile dough into the fire. Delicious food, fantastic service

Quiet, shady restaurant in the less touristy area of Sirince. Good service and tasty Gozleme for lunch. We could see the lady rolling out the dough for these Turkish tasty snacks and the oven she used to cook them. Rustic decor with notes and cards written by previous customers under the glass tops of the tables. A nice break from... More

We loved this family run restaurant. If you're looking for an authentic experience in turkey with mama cooking at the open Oven and great quality fresh food and excellent wine look no further. Good price and friendly service with a quirky aesthetic.

This is a family run restaurant where you can watch Nusrat making Gozlem (turkish pancakes) The food is real home style Turkish cooking and the Lamb Shish Kebab I had was superb, tender and tasty. The young waiter was quick, friendly and attentive. The restaurant is small and beautifully situated with a great view over the rooftops and valley below... More

A very pretty place with amazing views of Sirinçe. We had two beers and a chocolate pancake, very yummy! Their garden is a special place to relax from all the tourists around.

This place is running by a family and owners are really nice people. Go there and have fun with the view and... More

We visited Mercann Restaurant to have breakfast after staying in the nearby Alya Pension. What a treat! All homemade jams and locals vegetables, cheeses and bread. It was all scrumptious and the place was impeccably clean. The breakfast was only 15L each which is about £4 in the UK - phenomenal value! The view from the terrace was beautiful, similar... More

Was a delight to sit elevated to view the rest of the hillside & valley whilst having lunch. Plenty of signs posted above and below the restaurant. Garden dining in shade or upstairs. Good menu and also offered local dishes of the region. All foods, salads and meats on display in glass fridge looked great. Would have loved to try... More
