We visited as a party of 4 and not one of us had a decent meal. The meals seemed to be made up of whatever was left in the fridges at the end of the season. The head waiter appeared to be doing the cooking as he disappeared for long periods of time leaving the only other waiter who could... More

We not only ate, but stayed at the Purple Tulip. We had a wonderful time, a good laugh and we were really cared for. The staff are wonderful and really made us feel at home.

I have eaten in this restaurant on previous trips to Dalyan as it was directly across from the Donmez hotel where I was staying. This season it is under new management with one of the lovely guys from the Four Seasons as a partner. The restaurant is on a side street linking the main street with the river. Fairly large... More

We walked past this restaurant and it looked lovely but it was empty. However, we thought we would give it a try and I am glad we did!! The menu was varied and we all found something to eat. Including my fussy 10 year old! Frank was our host and was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble for... More
