Sarigerme village is not the largest place but does have a few cafes, restaurants and bars suiting most tastes and budgets. The large hotels and resorts tend to be all-inclusive so the majority of tourists choose to stick within the confines of their complex, but for those that do fancy venturing out, the following come recommended:
Paradise Restaurant Not the fanciest looking of places but for a good choice of well-cooked grills and Turkish dishes the Paradise Restaurant is a popular choice. Reasonably priced and with friendly service, they will make a fuss of you and the food is supposedly excellent!
The Fish House A trendy seafood restaurant opened in 2011, the Fish House has become popular with all those that enjoy quality fish dinners in a relaxed environment. Good food and service and a nice choice for a special occasion.
Blue Dolphin Restaurant A good varied menu, friendly service and great prices are served up at the Blue Dolphin in the village centre. Well recommended by tourists and locals, the staff are helpful and attentive and it’s busy most lunchtimes and evenings.
Hilton Golf Resort Restaurant There are a number of restaurants and bars at the Hilton many of which are open to non-residents. The finest ingredients are used and a variety of tastes catered for from those that enjoy modern, Turkish, fine-dining and international cuisine, to those that like a good Chinese or Thai. A little pricey but the food and service excellent.
