Great food nice location

Had lunch at this nice little restaurant right on the sea side in Datça. The food was really good, fresh, and the prices were reasonable. Had the fried fish and calamari and all was fresh daily catch. They also have non sea food such as meat and vegatarian dishes. The service was good as well.

Lovely food in a pretty setting. The staff were friendly and spoke good English (regrettably we did not speak enough Turkish to get us through on that alone!).

We waited twenty minutes to get seated! Small, family operated seafood restaurant. We had four different mezes, calamari and shrimp and grouper fish as main dish. All was great especially mezes were just perfect. Shrimp would have been better.

Lovely setting above the harbour, this restaurant is always busy. For good reason. The staff do so well with this busy and ever popular restaurant; service is warm, welcoming, attentive and efficient. Proud to show off the range of fresh mezes on offer outside the kitchen as well as the fresh fish catches of the day. It is popular and... More

Nothing special with this place. The Calamari was good, shrimps didn't taste much and the chicken curry was quite okay but could have had more taste of curry and salt. Salt is easy to fix of course. Service was OK.

There is an element of "sales hassle" presented by some of the restaurants; however there's none of this hassle at the Captains place. The delicious food was consistently good & the view from the restaurant is great ~ Good service & good value for money. Nothing to dislike.

We always go for the steaks in here. I tried the chicken in mushroom sauce on my last visit and would rate that very highly also. It can get busy at peak times so if you require a table with a harbour view- book or don't be late. It is very popular with visiting Turkish people.
