Antalya Fine Dining

Good food is one of life’s pleasures. It enhances so many social occasions and we quickly notice if it’s not up to scratch. It also plays an important part in how fondly we remember our holidays once we return home.

If you are enjoying a vacation in a private luxury villa in Antalya, chances are you are looking forward to trying some of the superb cuisine at the local restaurants. Even if you are staying in an all-inclusive hotel, you will likely decide to eat out sometimes.

The good news is that no matter where you are in the province, there is a veritable feast of choices. The standard of restaurants along the Turquoise Coast is superb, with every resort recognising the demand for eateries that combine exceptional food with delightful surroundings.

A taste of Antalya

Antalya has a wealth of excellent restaurants featuring a wide range of cuisines, some with stunning views across the Mediterranean and others more hidden away.

Bloxx Gastrobar & Restaurant in Konyaaltı, for example, is a firm favourite with fans of French food, with diners also praising the welcome, the stylish surroundings, and the attentive service. The menu includes a wide range of European and fusion food, as well as an extensive wine list and signature cocktails.


Another popular choice for a special meal is Seraser Fine Dining, which was established back in 2009. Nestling in Antalya Old Town, it combines international and traditional Turkish styles and has developed a strong reputation for delicious desserts.

Some people, particularly when visiting for the first time, are more comfortable with familiar names. Again, Antalya steps up to the plate. Land of Legends in Belek, for example, includes such recognisable brands as Pizza Express and La Lorraine, as well as a range of à la carte and fast-food outlets.

Style and quality in Kalkan

Renowned for its air of quiet refinement, Kalkan is the jewel in the Turkish Riviera’s crown. Attracting those who seek a more exclusive destination and boasting some of the most beautiful holiday villas in Antalya, it follows that Kalkan’s restaurants are also among the best to be found.

What could be more pleasant than relaxing over a leisurely lunch or sunset dinner, chatting with your companions as you take in the stunning scenery? You will find everything from contemporary dining to traditional taverna-style restaurants around the harbour. The Likya Residence Hotel & Spa restaurant, for example, attracts rave reviews and is open to non-residents. The Taurus mountains make a striking backdrop to panoramic sea views, making for an unforgettable experience.

Something for everyone in Alanya

Ask ten people which restaurant is the best in Alanya, and the chances are you will get ten different answers. Everyone has their own tastes and preferences, and there are simply so many places to choose from.


From a romantic meal for two to an evening people-watching on a busy town street, you could enjoy a different setting each time while on holiday in Alanya and never come close to running out of options.

For a stunning view over the ocean while you dine, the Lui Beach & Lounge is well worth a visit. Listen to the waves rolling onto the beach as you eat and, as the sun goes down, watch the castle light up across the water.

Spoiled for choice in Side

As well as superb 5* luxury holiday accommodation and villas, Side also has an enviable variety of restaurants. The resort is more peaceful than some of its neighbours, attracting those who enjoy the finer things in life – including great food.

You will find everything from Turkish specialities to European and fusion menus. Dine by the water’s edge at the Azumare Lounge, which has a chilled-out vibe and specialises in Mediterranean food, or seek out a traditional barbecue restaurant where you cook your own meat at your table. Whatever your dining preference, you will find something to suit your taste.
