Babadağ Kafeterya – Perfect Snack Food Simplicity

Eating; most definitely one of our favourite pastimes. We cook Turkish recipes at home and we also love to eat out, too. Yeah, we love us a posh treat every now and then: a seafood feast at Girida, perhaps, or a steak at Çarıklı Et. But Fethiye is also blessed with oodles of places from […]

Charcoal Palace – Mangal Saray Restaurant, Çalış: Our Guilty Pleasure

You wouldn’t know it was there, if you didn’t know it was there. And we don’t just mean the restaurant we’re going to write about; Charcoal Palace – Mangal Saray in Çalış. We’re talking about its location, too. Bedesten Bazaar, the little square where Charcoal Palace resides, is not the type of place that announces […]

Begonya Ev Yemekleri, Çalış – Turkish Kitchen Meets English Tearoom

So, what’s going on with the title of this post, then? Just trying to sum up a description of our latest local eatery article in a few words, that’s all. Hopefully, as we tell you more about our recent experience at Begonya Ev Yemekleri in Çalış, and you scroll through the photos, all will start […]

Sarge’s Place, Çalış – Pub Grub & A Cosy Atmosphere

It’s been a relatively short career, so far, our time at Sarge’s Place in Çalış. It’s not the sort of place we’d go to usually – well, we don’t live in that area, and, if we are around there, it’s usually to go Sunday food shopping at the market, followed by a hello and a […]

Lukka Cafe, Restaurant & Bar – Another Taste Bud Tempter Along Çalış Beach

There’s a bit of a back story to the Lukka Bar Restaurant & Cafe scenario, so we guess we should start there, really. You see, Lukka is this bar/restaurant that’s been there, sat at the end of the main stretch of Çalış Beach for quite some time. Five years, actually, when we asked owner, Aydın, […]

Lighthouse Restaurant – Simple & Colourful Dining Along Çalış Beach

Lighthouse Restaurant Pide and Pizza, Çalış Beach – a new one for us (or, at least it was when we first wrote this post). Springtime always sees us trying out new places. Why? Because… The mild winter has meant that Spring has sprung early in Fethiye. And, whenever that happens, it’s nigh on impossible for […]

Çalış Kebabs & Dürüm – A Favourite Fethiye Kebab Haunt

“When we eat out, where would you say we go most?” “If we’re in Fethiye, Popeye’s boat or the kebab place if we’re in Çalış.” “Yeah, I think that, too…so why have we never written about the kebab place in Çalış?” This was a little conversation between me and Barry a short while back – and […]

Calisto Pizza & Beer By The Sea – Don’t Mind If We Do

Çalış Beach in winter always interests us because you get the odd business or two that seem much more lively in the daytime than they do in the busy summer season. Yeah, we know it’s the change in weather and all that but you just get used to seeing quiet day times. Then, all of […]

Lodos On Çalış Beach – We Like Waves

Just in case you go thinking we’ve got a bit of a weather obsession at the moment, we’ve not. Well, not really, anyway. It’s just that, right now, anyone and everyone who lives in coastal areas around Turkish shores is talking about the weather. In our last blogpost about the weather in Fethiye, we were merely […]

December Fethiye Photos Of The Day – The Countdown Continues

Well, judging by the response to our last blog post; a photo post about Fethiye kordon on sunny winter days, it seems we’re all big fans of that particular area of town – and why wouldn’t we be? So beautiful… And on our Turkey’s For Life Facebook page, yesterday, we shared another photo which was […]
