You have to try the Gecit Restaurant which is family run and serves the most delicious food. We tried a number of differant restaurants during our last visit to Dalyan and rated the Gecit as one of our favourties. The staff are so friendly and the food that they serve is wonderful. We will be back next time we visit Dalyan. Forgot to mention that the prices are very reasonable compared to the other places that we tried.

Traditional Turkish food

Always my first and last port of call when going to Dalyan. Family run with good traditional Turkish food. Eray always makes you feel at home. Good wine at the lowest price in Dalyan. Looking forward to the lamb and sea food platter next year.

I really cannot understand why, in four weeks in Dalyan, we only discovered this restaurant on the last night of our stay! It is by far the best restaurant in the town and we have eaten at many of them. We were attracted by the board offering Giant King Prawns which my husband had. They arrive sizzling in a pan,...

I really can't understand why Gecit isn't much higher in Trip Advisers ratings, I can only assume that the many people who eat there regularly do not use this site. Even towards the end of the season this place is always busy, in fact it was almost full on several nights when neighbouring restaurants were completely empty. Eray and his... More

I had the best lamb shank here. Lovely atmosphere, service, location and the fresh bread just so tasty. The claypot is one of their specialities and they do it so well. I am a regular visitor to Dalyan and always make sure I have a meal here.

We even had a day out on their boat which was also wonderful with crab fishing and BBQ. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to food... More

The food and service from Gecit was the best we had on our 2 week stay in Dalyan. The waitors are friendly and attentive without it being too much. We had the king prawns and they were fabulous - highly recommended! Thank you for a lovely meal.
