Perfect setting with great service from Ali

Best view in Dalyan to eat overlooking the tombs by the river, good quality food with great service, Ali certainly makes the difference to your dining experience with his care and attention to your requirements. Lunch and dinner are both really good here , snack or full meal both of superb quality.

Amazing food in a beautiful setting. Waiters so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We went there for my sisters 40th and they decorated the area we were sitting in and the waiters were so attentive. Would Defo go back. Grilled crab was amazing.

We walked past and stopped to look at the menu board as a hotel guest said the views were amazing. As we were talking to the front door man another guy from the Blue Moon Restaurant was trying to get us to go into his restaurant - he was rude and aggressive and I told him to go away. We... More

Always greeted with a smile and welcome. Pleasant, easy going atmosphere. The food is good and is served by competent staff. Parking is easy if you have a vehicle, at the side of the restaurant. Make sure you know what you are ordering, a friend ordered something but didn't realise that he should have ordered something to go with it... More

We were only the second table taken for dinner but I think they must have lost the chef. The mezze was very very tired and the fish we chose as a main course was cremated. Thank goodness for the view. We will not go again....ever

This is my favourite restaurant when i go to Dalyan. It is situated by the river and you can choose either inside or out. It would be worth while booking in the high seasons. The tables have beautiful linen which I personal like. They have a wide selection of fish dishes. My particular favourite is grilled crab. Yum. Our Turkish... More

A fantastic restaurant that gets all the important things right … and achieves that with an effortless charm and absolute passion about food, people and service. I remember when I went to it when it first opened a number of years ago that this was a place that was going to become a firm favourite. It was and still is... More

I've been in Dalyan 4 nights and have already eaten at the Saffron twice. Last night I had the cheese rolls starter ( lovely filo pastry filled with feta type cheese ) - they were so fresh and light followed by a fabulous fillet steak and peppercorn sauce. The service was spot on and and of course you get a... More
