A guide to the best restaurants in Hisaronu

For such a small town, Hisaronu has a surprising amount of good quality restaurants, which seem to have sprung up due to the popularity of Turkey holidays in this area.

Good value Turkish meats at Suzanne's Restaurant

Tucked away just off the main road and down a narrow side street, Suzanne’s Restaurant serves up authentic Turkish cuisine at rock-bottom prices. Try the lamb sizzler or ottoman chicken for melt-in-your-mouth meat cooked to perfection, all served up with a smile.

Popular Turkish food and wines at The Bees Knees Restaurant

When a place is permanently packed with locals and tourists, it’s a sure-fire sign they know what they’re doing. The Bees Knees is always busy so a prior reservation is advisable. Generous portions and quality house wines are set off with exemplary customer service.

Fine dining with live music at Barracuda

Barracuda is slightly pricier than other restaurants in the area but it compensates with its refined atmosphere, beautiful presentation of food and live music. From the decor to the waiting staff, you’ll know this place is a cut above the rest as soon as you walk through the door.

Big portions and lots of choice at The Pine Hill

Doubling up as a hotel and a restaurant, The Pine Hill is a great place to spend a day lounging by the pool and gorging on delicious food with its eclectic, extensive menu. The portion sizes are generous too, making it ideal for families on cheap holidays to the Dalaman region – so don’t forget to bring your appetite.

Service that shines at Palm Tree Bistro

While the food here is exquisite and the menu varied, the real stars of the show are the husband and wife who run the place. The chef will greet each and every table personally while offering advice on the best dishes and explaining his methods. It’s clear customer service is extremely important to them.

Indian flavours at Shine Indian Restaurant

If you’re looking for a break from Turkish cuisine, this Indian restaurant is one of the best you’ll find outside of Asia. The curries are cooked to perfection and the pricing is reasonable, while the staff will bend over backwards to make sure all your needs are met.

Attentive Asian offering at Dragonaro Chinese Restaurant

Maintaining the Asian gastronomic theme, Dragonaro is located slap bang in the middle of town and offers a tasty and reasonably-priced alternative to Turkish food. The tasteful decoration, attentive service and spotless cleanliness complete an enjoyable dining experience.

For refined adults at The Olive Tree Restaurant

Located on the outskirts of town, this exclusive, fine dining establishment enforces a strict adults-only policy. The al fresco terrace is adjacent to an olive grove, while the upstairs balcony overlooks a pristine swimming pool. It’s not to be missed for anyone after an unforgettable and upmarket culinary experience.

Quirky and lots of choice at The Reef Bar Bistro Club

The quirky decor, pool tables and large screen TVs give The Reef Bar an interesting ambience, made all the more welcoming by its impeccable waiting staff. The menu is far-ranging with plenty of choice for vegetarians, and imparts its own unique twist on each dish.

Coffee and cake at Cafe Umut

This lovely little cafe in the heart of Hisaronu is the perfect place to escape the often intense midday sun and indulge in a dessert or two. Though quality Turkish coffee is famous around the world, it’s sadly lacking in Hisaronu – but thankfully Cafe Umut makes up for it.
