We had visited this restaurant in the marina area four years ago and all we remembered was the kind smiley face of the old man at the front of the restaurant - we were thrilled to see him there again! Never pushy, full of Turkish people, the fish here is wonderful and we are always offered extras 'on the house'... More

We popped in one afternoon as the place had been recommended to us by locals. We weren't disappointed! The calamari was simply the best I have ever had. To sit there sipping a glass if wine with the stunning view over the marina was something special. Tomas, the owner came over to chat and wowed us with tales of famous... More

A family run restaurant with a well deserved reputation for fish. There is always a wide choice, the fish is kept on ice so you can make your choice. The fish casseroles are wonderful. There is a wider menu if you don't want fish, it is varied, a choice for all. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.

As we walked along Marmaris Marina we were constantly badgered to go in to each and every restaurant, they reeled off their list of special offers & free cocktails, we soon got very frustrated with this & started to avoid showing any interest in looking at the menus even though I really wanted to have a look. This was until... More

I visited this restaurant on 10/05/14 I was asking several local business whilst shopping where would they recommend me to go for a good fish meal? I was told the name ( Nil Balik) every time, I was warned it was a little pricey however it would be worth it, every recommendation came with "tell Thomas I sent you" we... More

If it wasn't for the service it would close down.. Food wasn't all that at all, fish was awful, chicken mixed grill was barely a breast and kebab, all cooked the same.. Took an absolute age and the owner fella talks rubbish about knowing people whom eat there, he had no idea whom I was, and I knew some of... More

Ate here while docked in Marmiaris on a cruise. Fun atmosphere, right on the waterfront. Very fresh seafood, as one would expect. Good and friendly service. A bit pricey, but worth it.

Visited the Nil after 7 Years absence, was made to feel like long lost friends. It hasn't changed (apart from growing in size), still as good as ever. Thanks especially to Thomas and Tony Macaroni!
