Looking for a nice restaurant recommendation to celebrate your upcoming anniversary or birthday? Or are you just due for a romantic date night with your significant other?
Look no further! … Şato Seyhan Restaurant can accommodate any occasion. The ambiance is casual while seated outside on the back patio, plus it’s also kid friendly – equipped with a mini playground and tree house. Or you can choose to dine indoors if you prefer a quiet “romantic” dining experience.
Our group of 6 adults and 3 children went on a Sunday around 5:30pm. We walked in without a prior reservation and were seated immediately. Our server greeted us promptly and got us set-up with a round of beer & wine (they also have mix drinks) that we enjoyed while we looked over the menu.
The menu was extensive and included typical “American” seafood, chicken and steak dishes. However, there were also quite a few Turkish entrees – tava, kebaps, etc. – on the menu as well. We ordered the International Mixed Cheese Plate and the Grilled Calamari for the table to share. The grilled calamari was absolutely to die for! It was very tender and bursting with flavor. You will never want to eat fried calamari again after trying it grilled at Şato’s.
My husband ordered the Stripped Bass cooked in a clay pot. It was something he thought was unique on the menu, so he decided to give it a try. I ordered the Baked Fish Wrapped in Phyllo. At first I thought the fish was actually wrapped in a phyllo pastry, but it came out in aluminum foil. Silly me for assuming; however, it was still delicious.
As you can see from some of the photos, there is a mixture of different kinds dishes and everything we tried was very good. Şato Seyhan will not disappoint! However, I do want to give you a “heads-up” that the prices were not cheap. The pricing rivals that of nicer seafood restaurants in the States. However, I felt it was worth it because of the beautiful view of the lake and relaxing dining atmosphere that this restaurant provided.
