This restaurant is well worth seeking out - it is high in the mountains above the lovely town of Tire, with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. The air is clear and fresh in the summer months and nice and bracing early in the season, when we visited this time. The food is authentic Turkish, with an excellent selection to... More

This is a well known local restaurant at a outstanding setting on the mountain village above Tire. A village road climbs up to Kaplan requires careful drive with nice views on the way. Restaurant itself is a cousy rural environment, but well managed and good service. Some special mezes like garlic plant are unique. We went there with 3 families,... More

We visited the restaurant at the suggestion of our tour guide and were pleasantly surprised. Kaplan is located high above Tire and there are many switchbacks but the views are wonderful. We were served many Turkish specialty dishes and we found most of them very good, though a few weren't to our taste. The staff that we interacted with were... More

Exquisite Kaplan Dag is one of the required outings for anyone passing through Izmir, Turkey. The trip from Izmir is about an hour but quite delightful. Climb to the restaurant from Tire is also an experience. But the food and the ambiance of the restaurant is surely exquisite. The owners and the staff are extremely welcoming and accommodating doubling the... More
