Ilica Park will become famous soon enough
New Ilica Restaurant

Sorry to get your hopes up if you thought this was going to be BREAKING NEWS !!!! This follows on from my question about where Ilica owners could go out to eat and get transport.

Does anyone know of any plans to develop the Ilica area a bit and have a couple of shops and restaurants etc.?

I realise that there are a few local shops but I would have thought with the sheer number of apartments in Four Seasons and Spring that there would be enough of a captive audience to support at least one good restaurant and a couple more shops up nearer the developments.

What are your views on this?

Re: New Ilica Restaurant

We asked around when we were there the other week, but the general impression we got was that there would not be enough business throughout the year. The bulk of visitors is from June to September, and who's going to open a restaurant for 4 months a year? Also, as the apartments are all self catering this limits custom as well. Mind you, the weekly market is excellent for fruit and vegetables - tomatoes actually taste like tomatoes. There's a man who does great kebabs next to the shop opposite the school ........... !

I agree.... We live in hope. Lets hope the new road and the opening of the 'Spring' shortly will bring enough trade for a good restaurant.

I hear the cafe at Four Season's isn't up to much yet.

Cheers

Leo.

Re: New Ilica Restaurant

Hi all,
I just happened to discuss this with one of our Turkish neighbours in Ilica Park. He owns the shop opposite Side Mare Aqua hotel in Kumk÷y. He had actually looked into it and said apart from the question of viability, there is no suitable location or land available at the moment. Oh well, maybe next year.

Re: New Ilica Restaurant

Am I right in thinking that between Four Season, Spring Apts, Spring Villas and Ilica Park there are 295 properties? That is a lot of people who may well be self catering but I would have thought that most would want to eat out at some point.

I don't know what the expected occupancy rates are but even if you guess at 30% in the peak season that would be about 100 families. Does this provide enough custom for a restaurant? Even if it only opened say Thursday, Friday and Saturday I would have thought it would be well used.

Re: New Ilica Restaurant

IP, I agree it sounds like there should be enough customers during the summer, but if the prospective restaurant owner first has to buy land and build a restaurant, the numbers would probably not add up. Not many Turkish people could raise that sort of money at the moment, and if they could they would probably pick a location with more chance of year round custom. However, maybe someone in the village will spot an opportunity and start up something there.

Re: New Ilica Restaurant

The Kebabs are 1.75 ytl but sadly he's not open every day. He does claim to be only 5 star restaurant in Ilica!

Re: New Ilica Restaurant

We look forward to trying out this one and only 5* restaurant in Ilica next week! Can you even sit down there? I can't remember seeing anything there but a small shop.

Re: New Ilica Restaurant

I think you should call it 'al fresco' dining. We'd love an update of how things are next week - we're really missing the wonderful views. Have a great time.
