If you are looking for an exquisite experience in Alaçatı where you can feel a family-like hospitality, Pappaz is the place to go.
Sebla and Murat İleri decided to open the doors of their 4 generations old beautiful stone home to visitors as a restaurant after renovating it in 2016. Murat is the one behind everything coming out of the kitchen: fresh green salats, softly grilled baby calamaris, fantastic grilled jumbo shrimps, stuffed cauliflower, dolma wrapped in grape leaf, seared carrots in yogurt, marine cornice and many more meze, plus rice with artichoke, legendary tandoor or tasty meatballs as main dishes, finally desserts such as sesame paste baklava, “kazandibi” a milk pudding slightly burnt at the bottom or the creme caramel.
All the sauces used in Pappaz, from tomato sauces to pastes and mustards is also homemade. Murat’s wife Sebla takes care of the poetically cozy atmosphere of this place and runs the operation, taking care of the customers personally. In the summer months, their daughter Serra gives them a hand at the restaurant.
Winters go by movie nights, chimney talks or plays, together with delicious food, making Papazz a perfect spot; be it winter or summer.
