Modern Turkish restaurants in Turkey

With a wooden terrace and red-and-white tablecloths, Sakız is informal and fabulous. Its fresh meze includes recommended sardines, octopus and köz patlıcan (smoked aubergine with tomatoes and peppers), the unusual mains include sea bass with asparagus and stir-fried fish with artichoke. Live traditional guitar music sets the scene on weekends.
Antalya's most famous eatery is a couple of kilometres west of the centre, and its spacious indoor and outdoor dining areas occupy a hill overlooking Konyaaltı Plajı and the city. The menu of grilled mains, fish and meze is unsurprising but of very high quality. Ask for a peek in the enormous kitchen.
