Good but pricy

Food was good but very expensive for Antalya. Don’t try the carrot cheesecake 😅 they don’t always have everything that’s on the menu. Smoothies are very good.

Nice location, disappointing food

After reading the reviews I decided to walk for 45 minutes from old town to treat myself to some refined vegan food. Whilst the location, view of the water and customer service were all very good; the food itself was unfortunately very disappointing. I ordered the beetroot ravioli to start which was flavoursome but the cashew cheese was lumpy and the presentation lacklustre. The mushroom risotto was a large portion but gelatinous, very poorly presented and tasteless. I then had the carrot cake for dessert which was half frozen, tasteless and had the texture of cardboard. I did however enjoy my green tea and carrot juice!! I really wanted to like this place- given the past reviews, hopefully they were just having an off day!!

Pros: Large portions, View/location, Customer service

Cons: Lacklustre food, Poor presentation , Pricey compared to nearby alternatives

I’m really not sure how any vegan could rate this place less than 5 stars. The service was fantastic, the prices are incredibly cheap especially considering the location, and everything was absolutely delicious. We had 3 dishes and a smoothie for 135 TK, that’s $24 USD/ €22 euro!!! And they have a bunch of fruit infused waters and complimentary vegetable broth with so many healthy spices. We had the avocado wrap appetizer, black rice risotto, the flatbread pizza, and the energizer smoothie. I honestly couldn’t tell you which was my favorite because they were all incredible. A light sauce to dip the rice paper wraps in like a soy chili or a peanut soy or something like that would have really knocked it out of the park but that’s just me being picky because I design vegan menus and critic everything that comes out of our meal delivery service kitchen back home in the US so I’m a stickler.

Pros: Totally vegan, Delicious, Cheap, the views, the service

Cons: None

Healthy & Delicious food

The Saf restaurant is located inside the Akra hotel at the coast of Antalya. We stayed at the hotel because we knew about that. For 7 days we eat every day 1-3 times a day there. :)

The food and place are so yummy and outstanding! Especially the vegan raw cakes (they make them themselfs in the kitchen) and the rice-paper wraps are incredibly delicious!

The waiters weren't great but not bad either. They seemed often kind of annoyed and not motivated to give a good service
(Just OK friendly but sometimes not observant and not courteous. We often had to wait for the waiter. When nobody came to serve our table we went to the counter to order).
Maybe it is a turkish mentality?
I don't know. This was the only thing we didn't like.

Pros: Delicious food & food presentation, Outdoor seating, They have vegan Ice Cream

Cons: Not 100% vegan, Service could be better & friendlier

Incredible food at extremely reasonable price

The food here is delicious, we are staying at Akra hotel and intend on eating here every day. It has a large menu with plenty of variety and we are yet to find a dish which isn’t great. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, it’s a must visit in Antalya. Found out there is a new chef here, he is incredible, the dishes now look quite different from the original photos posted as reviews for Saf. The new chef is amazing, his food is the same quality as top vegan restaurants in London!

Pros: Amazing quality , Great variety , Extremely good value for money

A Decent Menu

I actually liked the atmosphere of this restaurant, and it has a menu with many vegan options labelled.

I tried the omelette and it was tasty. Prices are a little bit higher than the usual menus, but the portion was satisfying for me as it was as large as a pizza.

the food didnt match the price

I had a raw vegan lasagna with creamy (vegan) cheese on top, it was tasty and light but the portion was small, I was still hungry afterwards. If you are into a light raw meal and dont mind the price its ok but I couldn't find a hearty vegan meal in their menu. didnt stay for desert but they have interesting options

the atmosphere was of a cold hotel restaurant, I had to walk past the hotel gym to get there, I wouldn't say its cozy at all.

Cons: expensive, much

Exceptionel !

it took me 2 seconds to look at the excellent all vegan menu and realise i might have arrived in one of the best vegan restaurants i have seen around the world.
When i see cashew cheese in the menu , i already know the cook knows what to do.
Not only the vegan food is high class here , the ambience and atmosphere is pleasant and classy .All new and clean and well designed. Everything here is about high standards ,as you may expect in a 5 star place. The view is breathtaking, the mountains ,the palm trees ,the sky , the large space.
the friendly service in perfect english made it very convenient as well.
i ordered a vegan omelet , and a soup , a caulliflower and veggie curry plate. and a blueberry almond shake. all excellent, and i could not resist dessert , a blueberrey cashew cheese cake. i did not had to think long to choose this one from the menu . the price might be higher for local standards but is very reasonable for what you get . i am definitely returning here soon and can recommend this place to anyone looking for a wonderful vegan experience.
You can find this SAF brand in other cities, but it seems this one here has their own menu. and it is not disappointing. i give it a 5 star !
i had a wonderful time here , i really like this place.

Great Food, Amazing View

This restaurant is located in the fantastic Akra Barut hotel in the wellbeing/gym area. It's not completely vegetarian unfortunately, but the vast majority of it is.

I've attached photos of the menu and I enjoyed what I had (the aloo gobi wrap). There's a good selection of healthy drinks too. The restaurant was almost empty when I was there, which was a shame as the food is good and there's an amazing view (although probably not quite as good as the hotel's rooftop restaurant).

Note that they close early on Saturdays and Sundays (last orders at 7.30pm).

It's not cheap by Turkey standards, but it's worth it.

Pros: Tasty food, Amazing view, Good service

Cons: Closes early at weekends, Quiet so not much of an atmosphere (make one!)
