I was first drawn to Aynalikavak from across the street. I was on an "artsy" errand, but photographed the decor from across the street, making a mental note to come back, once I had finished.
First of all, it was the best Turkish wine I have ever had (and I'm ashamed I did not ask what it was). The food and dessert was also fantastic! and the decor.
I will admit to sending photos to friends in Europe, Turkey and the United States during my two glasses of red wine, cheese plate and chocolate dessert.
It is perhaps the most unique wine bar I've been to. I love to be outdoors, but the setting, places you in a garden. It's a tremendous setting.
I sat in the most comfy stuffed chair, part of a "living room set". There were numerous little "settings", among trees and flowers, and candles were lit as the sun went down. It is truly an oasis, and one I will travel back to.
I was perfectly comfortable alone, in truth, it probably allowed me to soak more in. And while I sat outside, the interior was also delightful. And the toilet, an exciting scream. (Which is a positive statement). Yes...I photographed several of the decorating ideas and emailed those as well.
I will attach a few of my favorite photos, but needless to say...this is a fabulously clever, well thought out establishment. I will certainly be back, each time I'm in Yalikavak.
My complements to the Owner!! It is divine.
