Fethiye - Eating & Drinking




Below is a list of eating and watering holes in the Fethiye area. It's not the definitive guide of where to eat and drink in the Fethiye region; it's just the definitive guide of where we eat and drink in and around Fethiye and we haven't been everywhere...yet. We're working on it, though...Oh, and apart from Popeye's Boat in Fethiye and the Tuesday and Sunday markets, all the places listed serve alcohol.

Fethiye: Along The Harbour

The bars and eateries here are listed in order as they appear along the harbour, starting from the Karagözler in Fethiye and heading towards Çalış along the seafront.
Yacht Classic: Along the Karagözler, overlooking Fethiye marina. Sip a cold Efes Pilsen, eat a snack or enjoy a great evening meal. You'll need to reserve a table for evening meals in high season.
Cafe Geniş: Great roof terrace and an open fire to keep you warm in winter. (Open all year.)
Address: Along with other restaurants along this stretch of the harbour, Address is constantly busy whatever the time of year. There's a happy buzz around Address with the locals of Fethiye playing tavla (backgammon) and drinking çay (Turkish tea) or beer. (Open all year.)
Iksirci Tezcan: Either side of the blue culture centre. The masters of the tost. We love sitting here with a mixed tost, washed down with freshly pressed, mixed fruit juice. Super cheap. (Open all year.)

Turkish Food
Çalış
Cafe Pazar: A great stop off point after you've been to the market. We love the homemade köfte and chilli burgers. Oh, and they're our friends, too. (Open all year.)
Günışık: Big, meaty kebabs and homemade, fat chips. Great food all round. (Open all year - day time only in winter.)

Çalış Beach & Koca Çalış

Cafe Bahane:
Chilled out atmosphere in this great bar along Çalış Beach. New menu for 2014 (Open all year.)
Çalış Beach: Fab Indian food. (Formerly Bombay Corner but they moved to the beach setting.)
Güven's: At the end of Çalış Beach by the dolmuş stop. We go here to sit by the sea and chill. Lots of welcome shade and breeze in summer. Beautiful sunset. (Open all year.)
Şat Beach ClubNot cheap but a beautiful place to sit for a drink. (We've not eaten here.) Open all year.)
Surf Cafe: Food, drink, sunbathe...surf if you want. A good chill out place. (Bar open all year.)
Yörük Çadır: Known to us as 'the tents.' Live saz music every night. Get there early on a Saturday night. (Open all year.)
Turkish Drinks
Hisarönü & Ovacık
This is going to be a short list as we don't frequent Hisarönü or Ovacık often. Our knowledge is admittedly scant but these are the places we go to if we make it up there for our annual summer Hisarönü night out. 
Abrahkebabrah: Blog post to come. How can you not want to have a drink in bar with a fab name like that? They were open one winter when we were freezing while waiting for a dolmuş. Lovely fire in winter! (Open all year.)
Shine Indian Restaurant: Blog post to come. Great food and as it's on a raised platform, perfect for people watching, too.

Ölü Deniz & Beyond
And another short one. We find ourselves in Ölü Deniz a lot over summer but it's usually to meet friends rather than eating and drinking. We're including Faralya and Kabak in this section, too, hence the 'beyond'.
Kumsal Pide: We can't recommend anything else on the menu as we always come here for pide and meze. 3 lengths of pide to choose from. Only order the longest if you're very hungry or if you're sharing. (Open all year)
Mimoza Piknik: Not easy to do Ölü Deniz on a budget but you can pick up a decent, cheap döner kebab here. (Open May to Oct)
Olive Garden Camp & Restaurant, Kabak: What can we say? Fabulous food (at a reasonable price), fabulous views over Kabak bay and there's a swimming pool and bungalows. Perfect!
Sea Horse Restaurant: Blog post to come. Belcekiz Beach. A good spec to sit and have an Efes while watching the paragliders. Good staff, too. (Open all year - daytime only in winter)
Turkish Food
Kayaköy
Cin Bal: Just the best. Kendin pişir. Kendin  ye! Barbecue your own food under the shade of vines or sit inside in colder weather for the Cin Bal winter experience. (Open all year)
Poseidon: Great views over the ruins and relaxed atmosphere with good music. Shaded by vines. 
Bülent'in Yeri: Bülent is always smiling! He's an institution as his place has been open in Kayaköy for years. Enjoy a drink or a gözleme while waiting for the dolmuş back to Fethiye.

Fethiye Cheap Eats

We live in Fethiye on a budget and whenever we come across a sit-down meal for 10 TL or under, we add it to our Fethiye Cheap Eats section of the blog. So, if you're on a budget, take a look at this for more options.  We'll be adding to this list as and when.

If you know this region, you'll know there are many places missing from this list. We aim to keep it as up-to-date as possible and if we try somewhere new and enjoy it, we'll be sure to add it to this page. As we said above, it's our personal list, not a complete Fethiye directory.
