Betul is one of my go-to restaurants in Mersin. The food is a mixture between European and Turkish, the staff are very helpful and speak a smattering of English to go with my *cough, cough* smattering of Turkish and the restaurant is attractive and pristine.

Prices are very reasonable and certainly a lot better than Mersin Marina and yet the food is of much higher quality.

Oh and the alcohol is reasonably priced and they give you a decent size glass of wine which is rare here.

We also had an expat Christmas party at Betul and it was a fabulous evening and went off without a hitch.

Highly recommended

One of those rare instances, when in a strange city, I patronized a restaurant without first checking reviews on TripAdvisor. We were hungry and the restaurant was nearly full suggesting string community acceptance so we decided to take a chance. We were not disappointed. The chicken crepe was amazing. Great view of the sea and a lovely garden. We had a wonderful time.

Cafe Betul has some of the best and innovative dishes of this cozy Mediterranean port city. The owner hand picks all the ingredients and re-invents local dishes with her own ingenuity.

We were at the Marina in Mersin beach We want to walk a bit but it was too cold then we thought to walk at the outside of Marina When we are walking we felt cold and hhungry we saw Betül cafe it looks good from outside. There was place next to the mirror. we sat, there was a little sweet garden in front us we could talk quitely and easyly, the foods were succesfull you can eat food cheaper then Marina here. But not that cheap a good beaftake like food is about 32 TL. But it was cold. we wanted blanket. but it wasn't enough there were electrical heat devices but they didn't work it that was bad for them. İnspite of cold ı liked this cafe youcan go with your love friend or family to this place

A profiterole, cream puff, or choux à la crème is a filled French choux pastry ball with a typically sweet filling of whipped cream, pastry cream, custard, or ice cream.

This restaurant offers the best profiterole that I have ever had. By the way, I am located in Istanbul, and I have not found as good as this one.
