A beautiful Ottoman house serving food and drink. They brought a selection of meze on a tray for us to review before we selected our meals.

One of several with good views of the castle. Now marred by the neon lights of The Catamaran Nightclub. The food was OK but we were rushed through our starter because they got our main course ready too quickly. They seemed more pre-occupied with preparations for the season. Disappointing.

Excellent service and a memorable meal. Deep fried mussels to start along with prawns in a chilli sauce. We chose a fat sea bream to share (the fish is calculated by weight so you can choose an anorexic one if you want). The bream was so simply done with rocket and lemon and brought to the table and then prepared... More

Seems to be a nice place on the waterfront. Food is good, but then the pricing on incidentals is astronomical, which pushes up the price. We ended up paying almost double of what we should have!! By far the most expensive meal (TL 100 per head) we had in Bodrum & the only unfortunate incident.

I would have to agree with most of what I've read by the other reviewers. The place looks fantastic, a very old building with a nice patio and good view of the beach and the castle. I ate there in the evening as the sun was setting so it was spectacular to look at. As soon as I opened the... More

We ate here on our second night in Bodrum. We were seated outside with a beautiful view of the castle and sea at sunset which we were really impressed by. However, shortly after being given a menu, the waiter brought over a larger crate of "meze". Assuming, wrongly, that we should choose a few for a meze platter, we chose... More

I have to agree with the other reviews, this restaurant from outside looks good to the tourist. The service we had was not very good at all, the quality of the food was poor for something that I classed as overpriced. Im in Bodrum regular but would never eat at the Kortan again

My wife and i we had dinner there and we had the feeling to be taken for a couple of pigeons!. The waiter was very insistent in making us choose the most expensive disheses. They show you a dish full of mezes without telling the price and,when we just ordered two of them, the waiter told my wife that she... More

As many others have already said, this restaurant looks like the nicest from the outside... but it's what's inside that counts. It was quite expensive and the food, although quite nice, wasn't spectacular. The restaurant is by the sea but we opted for steak as you can't go wrong with Turkish beef. The wine was also expensive and just the... More
