When it comes to eating and drinking, for a relatively small resort, Hisaronu really does have a great choice of options. From tourist favourites like curry, Chinese and Italians, to traditional Turkish dishes served in clay pots – all tastes are catered for and, no-matter what your budget, you will find something to suit.
It’s worth heading to Hisaronu early evening and wandering around to see what you fancy. Many of the tourists tend to stay on the main street and eat in the places that look busy – this is a good idea but there are also some good places if you look up on the first floors of buildings or head down some of the quieter surrounding streets. To help you on your way, here are just a few of the restaurants and bars that come recommended:
Located on the corner by the first main roundabout near the Oludeniz bus stop is the popular Barracuda Restaurant. With a nice garden terrace and occasional fish, live music or BBQ nights, it serves a good mixed menu of steaks, traditional, Mediterranean and fabulous freshly cooked Turkish pizzas (pide) at reasonable prices.
A wonderful Chinese found on the back street behind the central Azdas. Drangonaros may not be the cheapest in town but has fabulous food, hearty portions, reasonably priced set menu options and great service.
For those looking for a varied menu of dishes cooked the way you like them then Cheers is great! Tasty steaks and chicken dishes at good prices served with your choice of sides. Head down the main street and it’s found on the right by the go-karting course.
Just before the first set of pedestrian bollards heading into Hisaronu is the busy restaurant and bar known as Abras. Open year round, it has a colossal menu of breakfasts, snacks and main courses suiting all budgets. Very family friendly with a kids menu, it also shows the main foreign
football matches, racing, rugby and sport on big screen TVs.
If you’re in the mood for a decent curry then all the popular dishes and a good set menu is cooked up a treat at Curry Palace found on the first floor opposite the central taxi rank near Azda.
With good reviews, the small and romantic Olive Tree on the left as you head out of Hisaronu past the last bollards is a good choice. Traditional dishes, chicken and steaks are served by candlelight looking out across the pine forest.
From around 10pm each evening, this new live music and dancing venue is popular. No food service but a good atmosphere and regular Red Bull and other parties leave it busy most nights. Walk through the mouth of the Buffalo opposite the central Azdas.
If you are after some late night drinks and dancing then Time Out on the side street down from Azdas is just one of the many popular bars. No food service.
