Izzy’s Restaurant and Bar in Mahmutlar Centre

Looking for one of the Best Restaurants in Mahmutlar? Izzy’s has been the most popular bar and restaurant in Mahmutlar for longer than 10 years and one of the few original bars, set up when the town started expanded, still open and thriving.

It is now a very successful Turkish/Irish partnership and offers a homely, welcoming and warm atmosphere.

It attracts a great mix of nationalities and is particularly popular with the ex-pat community from many countries.

The best restaurants in Mahmutlar are always busy and Izzy’s is no exception. It is particularly busy on live music evenings when you may struggle to find a table despite the restaurant being able to cater for well over 100 covers..

We think that this Mahmutlar restaurant has one of the largest, of not the largest capacity for customers regularly catering for numbers in excess of 120 yet, one evening in July they filled it to capacity and then some AND had to turn away 90 customers who had not pre-booked.

SO OUR ADVICE FOR IZZYS’, PARTICULARLY ON LIVE MUSIC NIGHTS

BOOK A TABLE SO AS YOU ARE NOT DISAPPPOINTED

OR …..EAT VERY EARLY

OR …..A LITTLE LATER

MENU  BEST OPTIONS

With numbers such as those quoted above it is, therefore no surprise that Izzy’s has a superb local reputation for the quality and quantity of food served.

They have sustained this high reputation for many years.

There is a wide range of options on the menu including some specials for the ex-pat community needing a little taste of home on occasion.

This includes the best fish and chips you have eaten in Mahmutlar where the fish is all white meat, the batter is cripsy and fluffy.  The chips are just as they should be, deep fried until golden brown with soft centres. Sooooooo tasty.

We sit there and shut our eyes when eating Izzy’s chips – we are immediately back home with chips that taste like the best chippy in town and to top it all THEY EVEN HAVE SARSONS VINEGAR!!!!

But don’t run away with the idea that this restaurant is about Brits Abroad, far from it. Whatever the chef at Izzy’s cooks he cooks to perfection.

Izzy insists traditional cooking methods. You won’t hear the ping of a microwave defrosting or heating up your meals.

There is a huge charcoal oven in the kitchen and the chef ensures that everything is cooked from scratch to order.

It really doesn’t come fresher than that.

The meat dishes are excellent as well with prime cuts of beef and the chefs own home-made gravy which is outstanding.

Our favourite is sizzling beef, enough to make you drool just thinking about it.

Then there is steak and kidney pie …..

Your biggest problem will be what to choose for your main course, then do you want creamy mash, roasties, or home-made chips?

No wonder the place is always full, everyone is trying to eat their way around the menu so they don’t miss out!! The food scores top of our Best Mahmutlar Restaurant Guide

 

We  haven’t started looking at desserts and coffee yet!!!!

But talking of drinks …….

ENTERTAINMENT NIGHTS AT IZZY’S

 

The routine in Izzy’s is dinner service is calm with music suitably low so guests can chat and eat their meals in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

After 10 the tempo is raised so that those who like livelier entertainment, music and dancing can let their hair down and enjoy themselves until that boring clock strikes 12.

You are guaranteed to be smiling and feeling happy at Izzy’s. It is just that kind of place.

Be sure also to listen to the Irish when they take control of the microphone – such amazing singers – will often bring a tear to the eye.

You have a great choice of entertainment throughout the season including regular live music night, special events and a high standard karaoke session  supported by the resident singer Karen Kar, who is also a partner/owner of the business. Variety and is what makes this restaurant one of the best in Mahmutlar.
