This is probably the most famous restaurant in Antalya. Near the aquarium, the personal story of his chef and his commitment to preserve traditional Turkish cuisine has been documented by international media.
Unfortunately it is difficult to keep a level compared to the high expectations, when a place so big became so popular.

7 Memhet is one of the most popular restaurants in Antalya. It is located on a beautiful hill, with views of the city and the beach. The food here is strictly traditional, and I would suggest getting meze - try it and you'll love it!

7 Mehmet is a classic and even amidst the inflation of so-called posh (and mostly tacky) fish and kebab restaurants who invest more in advertising than in improving their quality, it simply remains one of Antalya’s, and most probably Turkey’s best places to eat.

Location-wise, having moved from its former place on Konyaaltı beach to one of the best spots in the city next to the ‘glass pyramid congress centre’, the restaurant has lost none of its charm.

The kitchen of 7 Mehmet is far from being an abode for pretentious culinary acrobatics. As Turkish gourmet Vedat Milor pointed out while scrutinizing the offerings of the restaurant, one of the biggest wow-factors that distinguish 7 Mehmet is their commitment to keep their ingredients fresh. If Çiya Kebap, one of the most celebrated restaurants in Istanbul represents a sort of ‘culinary archaeology’, then 7 Mehmet is the guardian of the already unearthed delicacies of the Turkish cuisine.

7 Mehmet’s incredibly varied openers and meze (Turkish tapas) including the fabulous artichoke heart, goat cheese, Antalya’s special tahini bean salad and hibeş (spiced oily tahini hummus), casserole shrimp with butter and paprika, ever-crispy fried calamari and the dumpling soup are sufficient to put the restaurant among the players of the first league.

The specialty in 7 Mehmet’s fish menu is the grouper, best served grilled or fried with nut and garlic sauce. Though the Mediterranean comes poor compared to Black Sea and Marmara when it comes to the diversity of the harvest of the sea, grilled grouper served with onions is comparable to a feast of fried turbot. Other fishes offered in the menu are not lacking in taste, especially the sea bass.

The kebab menu is as proud as fish specialties. ‘Beyti Sarma’, a homely yet creative take on regular Beyti Kebap, with the meat wrapped in thin dough, served with yoghurt and tomato sauce is one of the most spectacular pieces in 7 Mehmet’s meats menu.

All in all, if you have just one shot to leave Antalya satisfied, don’t take a risk and opt for 7 Mehmet. Considering the intersection of ambience and food, 7 Mehmet is the perfect place for both a ‘rakı night’ as well as fine dining your business guests.
