First of all, its location is perfect! And then comes the drinks:) you have to try their 'mojito' at least once! They make it with brown sugar and it tastes delicious. They also have homemade lemonade. They serve it with satsumas. It was the first time I drank it with satsuma and I highly recommend it. Satsuma is used for... More

They are located right in the middle of the Kargı beach. They provide free beach seats and umbrellas, and they don't poke you continiously to order in return. You'll notice their lemonade (nearly sugar free and with a special kind of mandarin)and Çökertme (traditional Turkish kebab) as their most preffered servings. Food is overall "good try" and not a high... More

I was there last week, we had not been there for 3 years and all the staff and owners still recognised us after this time. Great service and the food was really good, especially the home made pizza in the clay oven. It can get crowded at times but that does not seem a problem. The ducks are an added... More

Yesim Restaurant is in Kargı beach which is a 10 min drive from Datca centre. It has a garden with hammocks and a good restaurant. They also serve to the beach. I had a very relaxing and lovely time here. The food is very fresh and well prepared, you should try the meze plates. The house made lemonade is excellent!... More

We have a house in Datca, so we spend a lot of time here. We've tried all the restaurants, and although many are excellent, Yesim is our favorite. The food is consistently excellent. The pide is the best in Dayca, and we often order the Tavuk Shish or levrek, as well. But the Yesim experience goes way beyond the food.... More

The food is delicious. You should check out the lemonade for sure. The staff is good, however the place is too crowded, the facilities by the seaside could be improved.
