Where to Eat in Kas like a Local

Yesil Restaurant

Asking locals about their fave eateries is the number one culinary travel recommendation, and without fail, Yeşil Restaurant is on everyone's list of the best restaurants in Kas Turkey. The family-run Turkish restaurant is just outside the charming Old Town, so you won't just happen upon it by chance.

The unassuming cafe isn't flashy or ostentatious, but that's a big part of its appeal. In Kas, casual restaurants are where you may get scrumptious, homemade Turkish food. You can see the Turkish grandmother toiling away in the kitchen, perfecting the ages-old family recipes. Yeşil is also one of the more reasonably priced restaurants in Kas Turkey. If you're travelling on a tight budget, this restaurant is a top choice because it's significantly less expensive than the Old Town's more popular eateries.

Everyone should try manti, a peculiar Turkish speciality consisting of miniature dumplings filled with spiced ground meat and typically served with melted butter, garlic yoghurt, and spices. Manti is sometimes called "Turkish pasta" or "Turkish ravioli."

There is no better place in Kas to sample this unusual dish than the charming, family-run restaurant Kasik Manti. To satisfy everyone's tastes, it offers a variety of manti so that you can try meat or vegetarian, spicy or mild manti. Kasik Manti is located directly on the main square in the heart of Kas's Old Town. Tables spill right into the bustling public square, where most dining is outside.
