It is located on the southern shore of the Teke peninsula, and the coast here is a popular tourist destination. However, Finike is best known for its oranges, the symbol of the town.

Mavi Sofra is an extraordinary restaurant that has been run by a friendly family for many years. Their food is superb and cooked in a large wood fired oven.
Go hungry, or prepare to take some of the food with you because they provide you with a more than ample supply of food. It's not just the main dish, as the special presentations leading up to it are just as impressive.
I would recommend the Mavi Sofra special pizza, which is loaded with delicious ingredients. I also can recommend any of the casseroles, but the chicken casserole is my favorite. It is a large portion and contains an excellent tomato based sauce. They know what they are doing!
They will bring a salad with a tasty dressing, and various appetizers at no extra charge, including baked mushrooms and spinach wrapped in a pastry. These are substantial, and you have to be careful not to spoil your appetite before the main course.
For small town Finike has an abundance of good restaurants. I have recommended Neseli Kafe as possibly the best in Finike, but I can also say without reservation that the Mavi Sofra is equally as good. The bottom line is I have two favorite restaurants in Finike, Turkey

We have visited this restaurant several times during our stay in Finike. All foods we had was good and reasonably priced, but four were exceptional, fish recommended by the owner, shrimps with vegetables, steak and souffle brought from adjacent Neseli cafe. Not at least staff is friendly and service excellent.

This restaurant and Neseli Balik are side by side and are more or less the same restaurant. Balik is for seafood, and Kafe is for other meats and dishes as I understand it. Both of them have great settings.
I went here for a friend's birthday. She wanted lamb, but they didn't have it on the menu so one of the waiters went to a nearby butcher and got it for us. Pretty cool, huh? Dogum günün kutlu olsun.
The meals were all really well presented, very high-end, and the quality was that of a high-end restaurant. The "Anatolian Fire Steak" was beautiful, as was the filet with a Roquefort sauce. These are tender and juicy steaks. The Tortellini Alfredo would make an Italian chef proud.
The restaurant is very near the mosque, and as a result they can't sell alcohol. That might be a negative for some, but we didn't really care.
The staff created a beautiful birthday cake as a surprise, and played a version of Happy Birthday in Turkish (İyiki doğdun) over the sound system. It made it a very special night.
We had a great time. This place is class all the way, and is inexpensive as well. I would highly recommend Neseli Kafe!

We were on an off-road trip through the lycian Taurus Mountains and came out in Arif, close to the ancient city of Arycanda. looking for a place to stay, we discovered the Arykanda Restaurant, which has also rooms to rent. The rooms were basic, but very clean and lovely furnished. The owner cooked excellent and we enjoyed sitting under the vines. Free wi-fi is available and the atmosphere was nice.

We were very pleasantly surprised with the friendly service, the very fairly-priced meals and wines at this restaurant overlooking the low-key Finike Harbour. The meals are more substantial than they look, as they are served in a plain and homely style and freshly cooked. The prices and set menus are all clearly advertised outside the restaurant before you may decide to venture in at your leisure. With the lavas bread, mini mezes and litre bottle of water included, just add to the value eating in a friendly and genuine family-style restaurant. The value dishes are 15TL with more expensive dishes also on offer at a fair price. Next time we are in Finike, we will be stopping here to eat again.

On our way back from Arykanda which has some of the best Roman & Lykian ruins in the area, we chanced upon Senturkler Alabalik (trout) Restaurant. Set high up on the pine clad slopes of a huge valley it was a truly impressive location. We all ordered the grilled trout, served fresh from a tank of running spring water, which seemed good value at 15 TL (5 Euros, 4GBP) per head. We were then served an array of delicious mezes to start, a loaf of freshly cooked village bread each, grilled trout cooked and filleted to perfection, followed by glasses of Turkish tea. Service was quick, courteous and efficient and the final bill was 20 TL each. We've been visiting Turkey for the last 14 years and this ranks as one of the best meals we've ever eaten in terms of quality, value and location.

The exquisite scenery of the river of Limyros is inviting you for a rich breakfast to savor the local tastes. If you wish, you may pick your own fruit from the trees and collect your eggs from the poultry house of the village.
