Tourists from other European countries, do not really trust the current restaurants classification in Dalyan, it depends too much on the English taste (far away the most important presence in the area). I have been eating in restaurants of different classification ( from Tripadvisor list) and I am shocked that this restaurant is not in the first positions. Excellent food... More

Having been recommended by many people to go we went on our last night in Dalyan. We were so glad we took the advice. Having read reviews I understand some recent experiences for people have been less than satisfactory however we had a wonderful meal. We began with a generous mixed mezze starter. Our main course were 2 traditional Turkish... More

We went to la vie last night after being recommended by our hotel. This is the first time a recommendation has fulfilled every anticipation. Food was beautifully cooked, service impeccable, setting was fantastic! Be sure to book a table next to river to make the most of the fish and turtles coming up for food and of course the view...

We have eaten here a few times and enjoyed it but last night the service was a shambles so we didn't even get to eat! We had no reservation but were told if we came back in 30 minutes they would reserve a table by the river. On our return, lots of new people at the riverside tables and no... More

Lovely setting, beautiful food, great atmosphere. Ate here on Tuesday, going back probably tomorrow or the day after. Have tried a few different restaurants this week, but this is one of the best! Thank you for encouraging us to book a table with tomb views, we were not disappointed! See you soon!

We used this restaurant as a place to drink, the bar is situated on the riverside with a fabulous view of the tombs and visits from the turtles! You have a great view up the river of the other restaurants and can watch all the boats sail by...... the staff, Onder in particular, was like a long lost friend and... More

This was a fabulous place to eat. Right on the riverside and lovely setting, overlooking the tombs and river. The food was superb and the service excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and the prices not much more than eating in town. Well worth it and highly recommended. We had fabulous fillet steak and delicious Sole in Lemon Sauce

You could walk past this lovely restaurant as the entrance isn`t very inviting but once you enter the place has a lovely riverside setting overlooking the rock tombs . We were given a warm welcome and directed to a table with a lovely view of the river. Waiter was very helpful with the menu and also nice and chatty asking... More

We were looking forward to dinner at this restaurant because of the excellent review from lonely planet. It was very disappointing to say the least. I ordered lamb casserole, the dish was tasteless, very bland, the meat didn't taste like lamb (I doubt it was) and was very hard to chew on. The lentil soup was horrible very tasteless.

The setting was amazing so beautiful the starter arrived and then it went down hill. We waited nearly an hour for the main and when it came one plate was minus it's potatoes. It took ages to get a waiters attention and then a wait for the potatoes to come by which time the fish was cold - no apology!... More
