The best Calamari in Datca, caught by the owners son! Great range of food, always excellent quality.

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.

Excellent location on the harbour of Datça, friendly reception, amazing meze (starters) on display as you enter and a wide selection of main courses (fresh fish grilled to perfection). Traditional Turkish deserts to round off a delicous meal eaten while looking down on a flotilla of sailing boats/yaughts. Thank you!!

Food is a tad bit expensive for Turkey (even more so for Datca), but it's delish and the view of the harbor is excellent. We visit Datca every summer and this is one of our go-to places for night out in the city.

Emek have preserved its quality in the last 15 years. İ go there every summer at least once since year 2000, İ've never been diappointed. Food is always fresh and prices reasonable. The only thing is that it can become noisy when the restaurant is full. Recommendations: 1. Reserve beforehand and ask for a table on the window side. 2.... More

We have been coming to Datca for 14 years on the boat and no trip would be the same without a visit to Captains Place. We have always been given the warmest welcome from Alim and his family, nothing is ever too much trouble and we have had many evenings enjoying their hospitality. There are a large selection of mezes... More
