Fethiye Restaurants & Bars

There are loads of great Fethiye restaurants, bars & pubs – but everyone will have their own opinions as to which are actually THE best Fethiye bars and restaurants.

So, this is not a definitive guide of where to eat and drink in Fethiye – or even which places have the best Turkish food in Fethiye (you can find plenty of reliable Fethiye restaurants reviews on TripAdvisor).

This is just the definitive guide to where we like to eat and drink in (and around) Fethiye – and we haven’t been everywhere, yet…but we’re working on it!

Hisarönü & Ovacık – Bars & Restaurants

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.)

Hotel Leytur: Not eaten here yet but a very friendly bar. Open to non residents.

Shine Indian Restaurant: Blog post to come. Great food and as it’s on a raised platform, perfect for people watching, too.

Ölüdeniz Bars & Restaurants

And another short one. We find ourselves in Ölüdeniz a lot over summer but it’s usually to meet friends rather than for eating and drinking. We’re including Faralya and Kabak in this section, too.

Ölüdeniz Bars & Restaurants

Bars & Restaurants – Ölüdeniz And Beyond

The Hangout: Good chill out place with views along Belcekiz Beach and out to sea from the terrace.

Zirve Cafe: A long drive to the top of Babadağ mountain but worth it for the views from this bar/cafe/restaurant and for watching the paragliders take off.

Fethiye Fish Market Restaurants: Choose a restaurant, go to a stall to choose your fish and the restaurant will cook it for you for a small fee. An eating experience. (Open all year.)

Girida Balık Seafood Restaurant: If seafood is your thing and you fancy a change from the fish market, this is no second best. A must-try for fish fans. Girida is now located on Fethiye marina. (Open all year)

Vegetarian Restaurants, Fethiye

There are not really any out-and-out specialist vegetarian restaurants in Fethiye. Maybe that will change at some point…but non-meat eaters need not worry anyway. Almost all good restaurants in Fethiye will have more than enough options for vegetarians.

Our main advice would be that you should not overly-worry about asking for a restaurant menu as a vegetarian. Just head for the fridges and check out which meze dishes you fancy.



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.
