A guide to the best restaurants in Ovacik

The large valley of Ovacik sits between Olu Deniz and Fethiye. The main avenue through the town centre is where you’ll find most of the bars and restaurants, with others dotted along the village lanes and back streets. We’ve put together a list of our favourites below, so you can factor them into your plans during your Turkeyholidays.

Traditional dishes at 3 Cheers

3 Cheers Restaurant is a popular venue that offers a menu of delicious, traditional dishes at reasonable prices. It’s big on personality too, from its massive sign outside to the squiggle of the restaurant’s name in chocolate sauce, this place won’t disappoint from start to finish.

Home-cooked comfort at Turtle Restaurant

It may only be small, but Turtle Restaurant is a popular establishment hidden away on a quiet Ovacik back road. Here you can enjoy some delicious English home-cooked food and snacks. Those missing home will be keen to learn that they serve up a good old traditional Sunday roast.

English and local cuisine at Aegean Restaurant

At Aegean Restaurant you can enjoy the delights of a tasty menu that offers a variety of traditional Dalaman holiday delights and English favourites. All dishes are served in a sublime yet understated environment that’s as easy on the eyes as its meals are on the stomach.

Enjoy a snack and a game of pool at Friar Tuck's Bar

You’ll find Friar Tuck’s Bar waiting for you on the corner of the main Ovacik Road, in the direction of Fethiye. The bar is open all year round and is always a popular choice, offering a good selection of light meals and snacks throughout the day and evening.

Great dishes with tasty sides at Four Seasons

Four Seasons Restaurant is a fun and lively restaurant that has a simple but delicious menu which includes Turkish, English and Italian dishes, served with salad, rice and chips. You’ll find this tasty spot on the road towards Hisaronu, sitting opposite Sok supermarket.

All day food at Mirage

Mirage offers a wide selection of dishes, from traditional English favourites to the finest Mediterranean cuisine and plenty of delicious Turkish meals. Head to Mirage and start the day with a traditional English breakfast, and save the local cuisine for later.

Dine by the poolside at Yengec Hotel and Restaurant

Head here during the day for snacks, sandwiches, salads and wraps, along with traditional cream teas, homemade ice-cream and delicious cakes. During the evening, they offer a wide selection of cuisine from an ever-changing menu. And even better, you can enjoy your meal by the poolside in a relaxed atmosphere.

Try steak and schnitzel at Shiraz

Easily distinguishable by its purple neon sign, ducking into the warm glow of Shiraz will give you the chance to settle in for an evening of rustic charm and traditional Turkish hospitality. The menu has a decent degree of variety, while the chicken wraps frequently get tummies tingling.

Variety is the spice of life at Saffron Indian Restaurant

Your trip to Turkey won’t be complete without a chance to take in sensational curry flavours. At Saffron Indian Restaurant, service is king, although that throne is shared with the quality of the food on offer. Expect crispy poppadoms, succulent samosas and chicken dishes that sizzle with sensation.

Eat eastern treats at Sandinos Restaurant

Turkish dishes make up much of this menu, but if you look a little closer jalfrezi and Thai curries join the homegrown greats. If one country’s cuisine just isn’t enough, make sure you stop by to mix and match some cultural cuisine.
