Where to Eat In Bodrum

  • You cannot go to Bodrum and not try Bodrum Mantı. My favourite is Çıtır Bihter, which is slightly fried Turkish ravioli, filled with minced meat and served with garlic yoghurt sauce. Heaven!
  • Miam Restoran in Türkbükü for a fancy meal by the sea.
  • Kavaklı Köftecisi in Yalıkavak for a laidback, no-frills Turkish meal – a favourite of locals. Don’t forget to try köfte (meatballs) and lavaş (a delicious, puffy bread served piping hot), with a side of piyaz (beans with onion, parsley and sumac).
  • Pretty much any restaurant in Yalıkavak Marina.
