Lets buy one between us, do one of those crowd funding thingys.  If all 12,000 CBF members put in a 100tl  each, thats 1,200,000.  There you go  :)  :)  :) Motto it is.  We could run a nice reasonably priced restaurant, with afternoon teas etc and give a percentage to charity.  We wouldnt personally make any profit and would probably end up in debt, up to our eyeballs....with taxes, accountants, staff wages and more.  Just pipe dreaming.  ;)  ;)

I'm sure there will be a few others as well before the 2018 season gets underway.

It's a shame the Limon is changing hands, we had some lovely lunches there in June and September and we were planning to go back one night, lovely food and such good value.  Not surprised Motto is up for sale though.

It’s always sad to see business’s folding and I’m sure decisions to close are not taken lightly.  The downturn in tourism has impacted on many business’s, however according to the Turkish government, forecasts on future tourism indicate that tourists are returning to Turkey and with uncertainty with Brexit, I hope that people will look to Turkey for future holidays.  We need the tour operators to be realistic with their pricing in order to achieve this.

A bit cheaper
Maybe down a wee lane or back street  ;)

And I know of lots of people who would be
Be delighted to see it happen

Thanks Kev... We are going round in circles with potential ideas depending on available venues which then turn out to be unavailable, or owner's testing the water but not yet decided whether to rent or not. There's been some very exciting possibilities but so far we keep coming back to the idea Dogan has been stuck on for the past couple of years. Who knows what the New Year will bring  ;D

Very sorry to see Iskele go, one of our signature visits when visiting or staying for longer periods. I recall when that location was busy enough to sustain two restaurants side by side. Routing the dolmus between the restaurant and the water's edge did little to help.

Yes me too re Iskele, maybe the brothers (not many people aware that the manager and one of the main waiters) have decided to return to family and help on their farm. The only complaint (joke) was when we could not get our seat by the fire owing to it being reserved for Mayor Saatchi. The cheek of it!!
Will miss our winter evenings there.
