Nice outdoor dinner in a cobblestoned courtyard

Set in a 19th century stone house, tables and chairs are set up in a cobblestone courtyard. The menu offered 2 set menus and an a la carte menu. We ordered a chateaubriand cooked medium rare between 2 of us. It was cooked spot on and came with some wild mushrooms, an aubergine purée, and a... read more

The court yard is cosy and the light is perfect to create a nice dinner atmosphere. We loved the meze buffet that offers the opportunity to try a variety of starters even as a couple. With the classic menue the taste of the two main courses (sea brass or fish casserole) was really good but the fact that the main... More

The location is nice and the staff as well ... But the kitchen need to be improved. We ate the Bodrum appetizer (nothing special), grilled octopus ( 3 pieces- to avoid) , grilled calamari ( 3 pieces-medium) and one grilled sole. With one bottle of wine ( 120 TL) and 2 desserts we spent 500 TL ... Too much for... More

We had been told it is the place to eat when you visit Bodrum. Indeed it is. The place is quiet, the waitress are one or two stars level. their english is perfect. The food was good, we have chosen the sole and it was perfectly cooked. We could regret the lack of accompaniment with the fish, but once again... More

Kocadon is an excellent restaurant on the Marina side of the bay. Excellent food but very expensive so make this a treat for your holiday. It is a great restaurant but I don't think it is the best in Bodrum...despite the great reviews. This is definitely worth a try as the food is so good.

Very nice setting, small plates make it very expensive, you don't receive what you paid for, definitely there are much better options in town.

Kocadon Restaurant is one of the top establishments of central Bodrum. It is easily accessible, with a car park situated next. Service is excellent, meat or fish is equally good. There is a good selection of wine. Last, one should not leave the place without tasting the house speciality of white chocolate covered figs.

This restaurant is located in a walled court yard behind an old house near the water in Bodrum. We cabbed it there from our hotel since parking would be a real problem in the area. The courtyard is beautifully decorated with trees and vines and there are air conditioners on the walls surrounding it to keep the air cool inside... More

Excellent staff. Old restaurant, lovely setting, not waterside but beautiful courtyard with lovely lighting. Good food, recommend having the buffet style starter! We had a lovely evening.

Every year I am in Bodrum, I have dinner with my friends at Kocadon. Although it is in downtown Bodrum around crowded buildings, the venue is very unique, calm and quite. The wines they recommend are always the best. The food is very unique and every dish is delicious. The service also makes you feel special.
