Share this article

Mozaik Bahçe – serving up tasty kebabs and other delicious dishes from the Hatay kitchen.

And all of available in a little pedestrianised corner of Fethiye.

Over the years, this restaurant has become hugely popular with tourists looking for some flavoursome regional cuisine – and Hatay cuisine is certainly a favourite; making it onto the UNESCO Creative Cities list as a City of Gastronomy.

The original owner was really keen to tell people about the food they serve and why Mozaik Bahçe is called Mozaik Bahçe.

The present owner is also from the Hatay Province and will share similar knowledge.

The first time we went, he told us that the Hatay region of Turkey is a mixture of cultures and religions (Muslim, Christian, Jewish)…and therefore cuisines.

It’s like a mosaic of all of those, hence the name of the restaurant.

During one visit, we asked the owner about the food and some of the recipes.

He disappeared and came back with a huge Hatay cookery book – all in Turkish.

He left it with us to peruse the mouthwatering dishes.

Since the devastating February earthquakes, it is restaurants like Mozaik Bahçe, Motif along Çalış Beach and others around the country that are keeping the Hatay cuisine alive.
