Perfect setting

Book table 6 for the best view of the sunset and the tombs. Staff really friendly but no hassle to drag you in from the street. Food well cooked both times were there and although a little more expensive than some others it is worth it (probably only about 20 turkish lira more so that only £5!! )

we love this place and go nowhere else when in Dalyan, year after year. Sadly last night was not as good. The setting is magnificent, riverside with views over the ancient tombs. As was the service. But the mains were only warm, all five of them, chips were stone cold. Given it is expensive by Turkish standards, it's not good... More

This restaurant has one of the best views of the rock tombs and situated on the river. We called in for a mid day drink and finished up having a meal on our last day, the staff were very friendly and the food very good. It's probably a little pricey compared to most but still good value.

This restaurant has the perfect setting to shine - perfect location overlooking the Dalyan rock tombs - next to the river - central location. However, the main man 'Elvis' made us feel unimportant and uncomfortable. The food was very average (swordfish was very dry) and more expensive than many other, better restaurants in the area. This could have been magical... More

We have stayed in Dalyan before and have passed by this restaurant many times not realising its amazing position by the river. The Staff are very attentive, we had fresh sea bass which was amazing, the kids had meatballs and Salmon. We chose mixed starters which they bought to the table for us to choose. We like Kavaklidere wine and... More

Friendly place, lovely starter board of bread and dips. However mains were disappointing, and a bit small. 5 stars for service and friendliness, only 2 stars for food.

Went here every afternoon for a few beers and sometimes a bite to eat. The lovely Jake (fantastic) and his fellow waiters did their best to make sure we were well looked after. It was so peaceful by the riverside with magnificent views of the rock tombs and a lovely breeze. Most days we were visited by a Nile turtle,... More

Great find having been to other river side restaurants, this one did not disappoint. Good service from friendly informative staff who were always available when needed. Nice food with some lovely local wine. Plenty of tables next to the river with views of lit up tombs.
