Sarentos was wonderful! A little pricy but excellent food & service. Must have reservations for a dining table with a water view. However, the bar offers full menu. Bartenders are very welcoming. Enjoyed brunch & dinner here during our stay.

I did not see turkey on their menu, but Christmas may be an exception. You can ask them directly on their website.
