A wander through the Marmaris Old Bazaar gave us the opportunity to do a little window shopping which resulted in getting new glasses and sunglasses that we both needed. This meant that we would have a few extra days in the port which was good as there was a few days of winds forecasted. Hakan from the Optometrist where we ordered our glasses recommended a small family restaurant for us to try, when I asked after a restaurant with real turkish home cooked food. A lot of the restaurants in Marmaris cater for the tourists and serve European style foods rather than the traditional Turkish, which we really enjoy. His suggestion was good as Meryem Ana was inexpensive, the food was authentic and very tasty and the hosts were friendly and welcoming. They also proudly mentioned that their restaurant was written up as a recommendation in the Lonely Plant! While there many people came to dine and some bought food and took it with them. Meryem Ana is quite a casual place which isn’t licensed so we took the opportunity to have an AFD.
