La Cigale

Izmir, Turkey

Follow the winding mountain road away from the coast and to La Cigale, an atmospheric dining room set amid 60 acres of woodland. The bucolic setting – all striking views across the peninsula to the ocean, lakes and a sea of pine trees – is reason enough to visit. On the food front, a provenance-forward approach is given to Mediterranean plates such as mountain mushroom risotto, slow-cooked smoked lamb ribs and elevated home-style salads. Ingredients are organic, with fresh veg coming from next door and meats courtesy of one of İzmir’s top butchers. An architectural gem of a cellar filled with boutique Urla wines completes it.
