Update 2014: Shaka Restaurant is now Mancero Kitchen, specialising in steaks and Mediterranean cuisine.
It’s fair to say that, at the moment, Fethiye’s harbour is going through what can only be described as a period of transition. At one end, we have the construction of the new Fethiye town square and Phase 3, the section going towards Çalış Beach, has ground to a halt while more efficient drainage and underground electrical supply is implemented.
That just leaves the middle section. A few weeks back, we wrote about the new restaurants appearing on the scene for summer 2012. Most of them are now open for business and so, along this middle section, relative peace reigns. One of these new restaurants is Shaka.
Shaka caught our eye as the finishing touches were being put to it a few weeks back. It just looks good! Traditional has made way for modern and colours are bright; turquoise being the running theme. We like to christen new places for our eating and drinking in Fethiye page so we just had to stop by for a drink, last week.
So what about the menu? We had a quick glance at that too, and, just like the interior, that’s also different. Different in that it isn’t pages and pages of every meal you can possibly think of. It’s simple, not super-cheap but certainly not over-priced, either. A lunchtime snack was brought out for another customer while we were there and we did notice one thing – real chips! Long may that continue…
