Satisfy your carnivorous cravings at Anis, where charcoal-grilled dishes exude a tantalising smoky aroma that pairs perfectly with their homemade pita bread. For a full experience, order the traditional Iskender Kebab and pair it with a refreshing Ayran — a salty dairy drink, deliciously refreshing on hot days.


The Turkish cuisine — a wonderful mixture of simple nomadic foods, Byzantine luxury and fresh raw ingredients — is considered to be one of the best in the world. Turkish speciality is the small starters known as meze, together with grape-distilled rakı. Unlike the stuff you get abroad, a kebab is always meat cut into pieces or minced meat. Another minced meat course is köfte (meatballs) which, just like kebabs, are served in dedicated köfte restaurants. The most popular soup is iskembe. It is made of cow stomach and served with vinegar. Seafood is very popular on the Turkish Riviera, too.
