Our lovely chef Mehmet has been with Ecce Navigo since 2005. He specializes in the wonderfully aromatic cuisine of the Mediterranean. His cooking is distinguished by its use of fresh local ingredients – including fish and seafood, lamb, eggplant, yogurt, sheep’s cheese, cucumber, tomatoes – and, of course, a liberal application of olive oil, garlic, and lemon.
Mehmet’s 5-star menus are mouthwatering and colorful – as appealing to the eye as they are on the palate. The aromas emanating from his kitchen draw guests to the dinner table like a magnet. His dishes manage both to inspire dinner conversation and command a silent, indulgent appreciation of food beautifully and lovingly prepared. After the main course, guests can treat themselves to Mehmet’s legendary boat-made Panna Cotta, chocolate fondant, tiramisu, and baklava.
