AUCTION**Meal for two at Acmenya, Alsancak Winning on the vill owners site bid by nige.

Well we went to Acmenya, Alsancak.

We were greeted by gengis and seated at a ice table under the sumptuous grapevines, we ordered to gin & tonics which were brought along with the menus.

We both ordered prawn cocktails pat opted for the chupra I decided on the mixed kebab.

Prawn cocktails came after about 10 minutes served in a nice dish with lots of prawns and garnished around the base of the dish with salad.

On clearing the starter plates the main course arrived after about 15 minutes the mixed kebab was served with rice chips and salad the chupra with chips and salad also there was a large bowl of salad to share.

Both dishes were very very well presented the food was all cooked very well and hot.

We ordered a bottle of angora white to accompany the main course, well it is not often I STRUGGLE TO FINISH A MEAL BUT i DID IT WAS DELICIOUS.

As my back was hurting we opted to have coffee and finish the wine away from the table in a nice cane suite.

If all restaurants treated their guests like they do at Acmenya then restaurants would be full it was as near to perfect as you can get.

A big thank you to all concerned.

Cost for 2 coffees, 2 local gin and tonics & 1 bottle of white angora 25 ytl

We had never been to Acmenya before but we shall return

Sorry - must strongly disagree. We've been going there for years - service always good, food excellent, reasonably priced. All in all, great evenings in lovely surroundings. We visited when we were there in May. Ghengis his usual charming self, surroundings as lovely as ever, but, food portions much smaller than they used to be and re-heated (unless I am greatly mistaken) vegetables. We were very disappointed, but gave the benefit of the doubt, as it was the first dodgy meal we had ever had there, and returned the following week with friends. Alas, the same - we all had completely different meals and sadly, were all disappointed. A great shame, as it was always one of our favourites.

Just came back from Alsancak and ate at Acmenya 3 times we also noticed portion sizes smaller than last year. Will say though the freebie fruit and cakes after go some way to make up for smaller portions. Ghengis has gone now but Mutlut and his brother took great care of us. On the whole a little dissapointed on portion sizes but in general still a nice place to have dinner.

turanmem - I know this thread is a bit out of date (like me!) but just to let you know that we bumped into Cengis in June of this year. He is now working at Park Lane. Must admit, didn't go to Acmenya this time.

We went the other night to this restaurant and posted my comments on another thread.

We went to this restaurant the other night and we were so disappointed posted my comments on another thread re restaurants. Very slow service. It took over an hour to get our main meals. No starters had been ordered. Fillet steak was not fillet and the kebab had only one meat, the chicken, which was of a good standard. The other meats were fatty and tough. The accompanying salad consisted of limp lettuce and a bit of tomato.

I am afraid I would think twice about going again. There is so much choice now in the area.

We used to be frequent visitors to Acmenya but havent been since June, it went right down, our friend had liver and it was bright red in a sauce and tasted vile, he was off his food for a while after, just the thought of the meal.I had fish in lemon sauce and was too tart and floating in oil. Was told they had a new menu, in my opinion they should of stuck with old one. We won't go back anytime soon.
