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

We visited twice during our stay in Dalyan and were delighted in our experience on both evenings. The meze plate was very good and the freshly baked flat bread was also excellent. The main courses (party of 5) were all different and all had great flavours, texture and were well presented. The staff were attentive but remained in the background,... More

v disappointing, the meet and greet didn't live up to the dining experience! I had a stuffed squid which the waiter served to me before I finished my mezze starter only to find it was under cooked, not surprising as I only ordered it 10 minutes previously! This restaurant need to take a look around the corner at Saki Restaurant... More

We have visited this restaurant several times over the years since we have been visiting Dalyan. On this occasion there was three in our group. I had a traditional meatball dish which I have to say was lovely. However, the two other people ordered the fillet steak. This was sent back initially because it was overcooked and tough, the second... More

We have been coming to Dalyan for quite a few years and have tended to stick to a few good restaurants. This year we decided to try somewhere different, so we came to La Vie. The setting is excellant and we were seated in the tables just down from the main ones, which was fine. The menu is not extensive... More

We returned again this year as previous visits have been enjoyable. The view across the river at the Tombs is amazing and I could sit for hours at night when they are lit up looking at them. We think maybe there are new owners as no familiar faces from previous visits. Service was fairly good. Steak was good with good... More

6 in our group. We were placed at the furthest end of the restaurant away from other diners but that gave us a great view of the rock tombs so didn't bother us. They didn't have some of the things we ordered and didn't seem aware of this until after we'd placed our order so it took some time to... More

We had been looking forward to visiting La Vie for the last couple of visits. But came away so disappointed. The good - wine, olives and bread arrived quickly, and we ordered very soon afterwards. That's about it for the good. The bad. No-one there to meet and greet. A grunt when we said we had no reservation but seat... More

Had 3 meals here on our holiday. The first was the best, but the other 2 meals were also good - it tasted very fresh, and home-made. The 3 meals were the best we had compared to our other meals out, and the view was unsurpassed. Value was good compared to other restaurants in town. Portions are generous. Service can... More

As a last holiday night meal, a group of our friends decided to visit La Vie. On arrival we were told no table was available, this was acceptable given the group size (ten people), so we were asked to wait until a table became available. We were given menus in advance but no order for drinks was taken. Eventually we... More
