Situated by the best stretch of beach in Tavakli Iskelesi, Murat's place is both a cafe and restaurant. They also offer camping facilities and beach loungers. The cafe area is a good place to relax in the shade and order light refreshments or snacks.
There is also a store where you can buy provisions or ice cream etc. The beach itself is called the Halk Plaj or People's beach and is operated by the municipality. There are picnic tables and plenty of shade from the pine trees. You can also do a barbecue here. You can even drive onto the beach and park right up alongside your table! So, back to Murat's place.
Whilst on first glance it looks no more than a cafe there is actually a restaurant part too. Under cover and with a balcony area this is a great place to dine with family and friends. The costs are pretty reasonable but always check first since some dishes will be more expensive than others.
The meatballs ( kofte ) or sardines ( sardalya ) are especially good. The restaurant serves alcoholic too. The service friendly and the quality of the food is very good. Highly recommended!
