Some of you may remember that last year I was lucky enough to go on an incredible press trip with Jet2 Holidays to Antalya, Turkey (Türkiye). We had the most incredible week and it's been amazing to hear that some of you even went on to book the same trip, or made a point to visit some of the spots we got to experience.Antalya is certainly a popular, up and coming spot for Brits - and just one of the amazing cheap holidays available from Jet2Holidays. That said, that doesn't mean you can't live and dine in luxury on your holiday. And whilst we all look forward to the ease of all inclusive holidays, I always think it's nice to break out at least once and explore the local cuisine. Here are just a few amazing places to eat in Antalya, Turkey (Türkiye).
NEMO Aquarium and Restaurant, Land of Legends
For seafood lovers visiting Antalya, I strongly recommend a day trip to Land of Legends for some thrill-seeking and retail therapy. Besides the theme park and outlet stores, there's also a selection of excellent dining experiences to be had there, including the NEMO Aquarium Restaurant & Lounge.
As the name suggests, NEMO's is a high-end seafood restaurant takes you down a floating staircase to the underwater aquarium where you can sample pan-Asian delights as sharks and fish swim around you. The menu merges modern European seafood with strong and rich flavors, suiting all tastes and presented by Chef Anuj Sarkar.
From beautifully presented cold sushi, to grilled fish and steaks, there is certainly something for everyone. They also offer a great selection of platters and small plates which are perfect for sharing with the table. The food and service were both absolutely fantastic and I loved everything we tried on the menu.
I can say whole heartedly that this was absolutely the best place we ate all week and I would strongly recommend it to anyone. You can take a closer look at NEMO's via my Reel on Instagram.

7 Mehmet's menu offers a modern take on classic Mediterranean flavours and turkish stables with seasonal touches. Here, we enjoyed incredible kebabs and skewers and small plates which made for a truly unforgettable lunch. This place is perfect if you want to try lots of little plates for an authentic turkish feast. It's certainly the priciest eatery on this list but it's unsurprising given the quality of service and the outstanding food. And even less surprisingly that it is a popular venue for chic events and weddings.
