It may not be the perfect 'first date' restaurant (bright lights, casual loungey room) but if it's hearty, family-friendly eating you're after Antalya is love at first bite. Start with dips such as smoky eggplant and red kidney beans teamed with fluffy house-made Turkish bread. Wash it down with Gazoz - Turkish lemonade that tastes like a Fruit Tingle - before tackling the mixed grill of divinely tender lamb, chicken, kofta and kebab, or a pizza with marinated mince. Save room for delicious made-here baklava and hot, sweet apple tea.
