The Best Restaurants In Gocek: Read Before You Try
The Cuisine Of Gocek's Restaurants
To be honest, if you ask me to recommend the best restaurants in Gocek, I will struggle to make a decision!
Gocek, as a good embodiment of Mediterranean and Aegean culture, generously serves its visitors dishes rich in seafood, olive oil, and herbs. You can find fresh fish in Gocek throughout the year.
Dine on seasonal fish, olives, and a variety of appetizers and shellfish at the beachfront fish restaurants. Okra, sea kidney beans, beans, and so-called raw pie (çig börek[chi bɜːrek]), which is commonly cooked with olive oil, are just several examples of foods that are typical for the area.
Salads created with herbs or pumpkin blossoms are delicious.
Aside from that, kebab, pide, grilled meat, chicken goods, bread, and the famed gözleme ([gɜːzleme]) are available. Gözleme is a traditional dish of Turkish cuisine in the form of a flatbread with stuffing wrapped inside.
Of course, there are numerous restaurants, cafes, and bars in Gocek. And everyone can discover all their soul craves here.
But there are several spots where I go on a regular basis and enjoy myself.
West Cafe & Bistro - The Best Cafe 2017
In 2017, Mugla West Cafe & Bistro won the nomination as Mugla’s best cafe.
Try the refreshing handmade lemonade, the magical cherry tart, and the pepper sauced meat tenderloin. They are without a doubt Gocek’s classics. By the way, you may not see this spot concealed in the shade of large trees while walking along the promenade.
But once inside, you will completely appreciate the peaceful and calm ambiance as well as the excellent service.

Can Restaurant - One Of The First Restaurants In Gocek
Can and Özcan are two good places created by the same family.
And Can is one of the oldest restaurants in Gocek. Here you can taste amazing appetizers and fish dishes. And if you are lucky, you will be able to taste the local fish in the restaurant during your visit.
So I highly recommend trying fried eggplant, bacon fish (Balık Pastırma), fried squid, and shrimps. This is a pleasant restaurant with great sea views indeed. Worth noting, that you should book a table in advance.

Özcan Restaurant - Classic Of Restaurants In Gocek
In Gocek’s classics, this is one of the most important locations.
Because of that, this restaurant is usually packed, especially during the holidays. Which is a testament to the high quality of service given. Özcan is famous for its snacks.
And the chefs create their dishes with delectable olive oil. Also, their sauces elevate any dish to new heights.
Without doubts, my favorite salad is the one with French beans and baby spinach. And you will definitely understand why I adore this place after trying the local shrimps.
It is beneficial to discuss with the culinary team while selecting seafood.
And they will assist you in making a decision based on your preferences.

Caesar-Et Lounge - The Best Meat That You Have Ever Tried
Gocek is famous for its seafood cuisine, but I would also like to mention a place where you will taste excellent dishes with the most tender meat.
The owner of the Caesar-Et Lounge treats his work professionally and wholeheartedly. He knows exactly how to cook different types of meat and what is required for this. Try beef carpaccio as an appetizer and feel free to choose any meat dish as your main dish.
As it will not leave you indifferent anyway.
