You may not realise it but by law every Turkish restaurant has to have a price list displayed either on the wall or a menu on the table. So there is no reason to get 'ripped off'. You may get a poor meal for your money, but name one country where that would not happen. If you are in extreme difficulties with the restaurant tell them you are going to 'phone 156 (Jandarma) to complain. If you are in the right they will climb down!!
In Datca most of the main courses in restaurants with a bit of a view are around 20 lira unless you go for something like kofte which is around 10 lira. In some restaurants that 20 lira does not include rice/veg etc so your main course can mount up to at least 25 lira or more. Mezes are around 5 lira a portion or a mixed plate for 12.
Then many places are charging 5 lira for efes although last night we noticed a couple of places just away from the main strip advertising it for 3 lira so perhaps now the end of the season is near they are coming down a bit. Soft drinks are astronomical and I paid 4 lira for a soda last night.
Now I know we can plod off round the back streets and get something for less but I would rather sit on my terrace overlooking the sea than sit near the road in a back street.
Acts of discrimination should not be allowed to flourish.One price for foreigners and another price for non foreign.
lt is so odvious discrimination is rife in their country against the foreigner's that are targeted to depart them of their money by using acts to discriminate
