Ferdi Baba Restaurant - Cesme

Ferdi Baba Restaurant - Çeşme Marina - One visit


Ferdi Baba Restaurant is one of the best seafood restaurants in Çeşme Marina, Turkey. Perfect for a slow lunch whilst enjoying the view of the charming marina and fortress.

With comfortable chairs and tables by the calming marina with a distant view of the old fortress, you can also cosy up by the warm fire if you visit at the beginning of the season.


Friendly service that was not pushy and allowed us the time to sit and relax and enjoy the views of our new destination.

The focus in the restaurant is the catch of the day, and they have a large selection of freshly caught fish, all served with a minimum of fuss. What is it about the prawns in Turkey, again big and juicy! They have an extensive range of hot and cold starters, and the grilled cheese was delicious.

The fresh fish was divine, and they were very accommodating and were able to do one serve filleted from a delicious fish. Wayne even managed to find a tasty main course with prawns that made him (the non-fish eater) happy.

After devouring your meal, you are presented with a complimentary fruit platter, a perfect end to a lovely lunch.

As Ferdi Baba was only just opening for the season, the wine selection was just getting started, but there was enough choice of local wines to keep us satisfied; you pop inside to view the selection and find the perfect match for your meal.


The pricing was very reasonable, and you will be delighted with your choice and will thoroughly enjoy your meal. Ferdi Baba Restaurant has continued to branch out over the region and now has four restaurants to enjoy.


Ferdi Baba is located in the heart of the charming Cesme Marina. It is quaint and tucked away in a cove and a wonderful place to wander around and enjoy the surroundings.
