Where to Eat in Bodrum City: The Best Restaurants and Bars

August 4, 2017 Tambra Mccollister

Once a cozy fishing village of only a few thousand people, Bodrum has experienced a renaissance in the last half century that has transformed this once-sleepy community into one of Turkey's most popular vacation hotspots. Writers, intellectuals, artists and musicians have long called this Aegean town home, or second-home, attracting a vibrant cultural scene paralleled only by the town's nightlife. Windswept beaches and glittering waters provide the backdrop to the perfect beach getaway.

Annalivia Restaurant

Reviewed By Rosiita - Gillingham Kent

Visited for our 9 year anniversary dinner whilst holidaying in Gumbet. Service was second to none, great value and a phenomenal steak each! Had the plank steak with mashed potatoes and veg with bernaise sauce. Cooked perfectly and came out quickly. Was about 60TL, absolute steal! Couldn't quite finish the generous portion but really enjoyed it nonetheless. Will return next year hopefully.

Tasty food but the manager (Inan Özcan) is scamming foreigners by putting additional dishes in you bill to make more money. In our bill he added Lokum (Turkish sweets) for 50 liras. So check your bill carefully before paying or skip this place.

We ate here twice on our recent holiday to
Gumbet. There’s a friendly relaxed atmosphere at the restaurant. The food was excellent and the fact that some of the locals were there also tells me it’s a great place to eat. The staff were attentive and they were happy to have a joke and banter with the customers. Highly recommended.

Family Door

Reviewed By FLINTSTONEFAMILY - Newcastle, England

Just re-opened with new owner/management. Apo is the front of house man and he certainly makes you feel welcome from the moment you enter. It is a work in progress, and they have such plans, but I have to say that it was busy on all the occasions we visited and it is easy to see why as the food is just gorgeous and surroundings are very clean and comfortable. There are lovely little touches like pristine white table linen, and beautiful glasses. They will make anything for you and do any combination of meals you wish for. The food is delicious and plentiful - good portions. We tried, curries, fantastic homemade naan bread and onion bahjis, steaks, casseroles, fish dishes, prawns, all were very good and presented beautifully, and great value for money. We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to anyone who visits Gumbet, in fact I am confident that you will feel like family when you leave and return as soon as you can.....can't wait to go back.
