The food was simply amazing great tasting creative artisan food. We had an octopus salad with a decorative flavored sauce whipped into a foam that made a little... read more

Dinner on last night in Bodrum 16 May - delightful courtyard setting & really good food well cooked and beautifully presented . Grilled octopus starter was delicious and a shared red mullet simply grilled was excellent. The staff were attentive, knowlagable and obviously proud to have the food complimented - relatively expensive for Bodrum but not for the quality or... More

My wife and I had dinner here our last night in Bodrum. The setting is perfect for a romantic evening with your sweetheart. All the fish was fresh catch of the day and they had a great wine selection. Service was impeccable.

Although on the main street between the castle and the marina, it's in calm and quiet being in a courtyard between traditional Bodrum stone houses. Recommended for dinner, for its romantic setting and ambiance. Reservation is a must during high season. Serving Mediterranean cuisine with an alacarte menu as well as a small cold buffet including Turkish specialties. Extensive Turkish... More

Great restaurant! The service was excellent. The food was very well cooked - the fish and seafood (octopus, squid and white grouper) was prepared simply to get the best from the ingredients, with just enough finishing touches to show real skill in the kitchen. The restaurant is in a courtyard that makes a beautiful setting. We didn't need to book,... More

Loved all; the food, mood, wine list, the service. All first class and the best meal I ever did have! Very expensive. Must reserve first.

We found this restaurant after a long walk by the port trying to find some quiet place to eat. We saw on the trip advisor that it was not in top 10, but we decided to risk. The restaurant is placed in the inner patio, with a old fountain and in between some trees. The service is very professional and... More

I went to this family run restaurant with my wife and 2 daughters. If I say Kocadon is one of the best restaurants in the world readers will think that I am exaggerating. But it is really true. The food is amazing. I tasted first the salad bar which includes vegetables in olive oil which are very very tasty. The... More

I celebrated my birthday with my family at Kocadon. We had a wonderful meal! The owner was very gracious and friendly, and chatted with us about her family and the early days of the restaurant. Her recommendations on entrees were perfect. The courtyard setting is beautiful, and we found the staff to be great. Nice mezze bar and the seafood... More
