See Website

The restaurant at Maçakizi Hotel seats three hundred on various wooden decks that perch out over the water. It is entirely separate from the lingering day partiers below, a romantic experience with candle-lit corners and the sound of the sea lapping at the decks below. Sip on Anatolian wines and dine on fresh local produce from famed Turkish chef Ayet Sahakyan. The menu might include goat cheese, beets and arugula salad with dill and walnuts, and exquisitely prepared braised lamb short ribs with meat that falls off the bone, accompanied by pumpkin oil gnocchi.

For those who stay on property, the same attention to detail is paid to the extensive buffet breakfast each morning, with overwhelming offerings of breads, spreads, pastries and hot foods. Make sure you don’t miss the famous brunch on Sundays, which offers the revered manti (Turkish dumplings). Even if you’re not staying at Maçakizi, make sure to go for dinner at least one night. Chances are you’ll come back again.
