Had a really lovely meal here in the early part of the season 2013. Very intimate little spot away from the main hustle & bustle but easy to access from the center of everything. Beautifully presented food, & great staff, perfect.

A very nice romantic restaurant with a friendly relaxed atmosphere. We ate in the garden where the food was very good and the staff were very friendly. Would definitely visit again when we return.

Great for a romantic meal, food great, reasonably priced food and drinks, the staff attentive but not intrusive, you have your meal in the garden which is very pretty then you can relax in the main bar lovely little place a must see when in Olu Deniz.

All main courses were very good, the baklava was excellent, the... More

Off the main "strip", a great bar and restaurant. Set among trees with nice background music, good food and servce. A personal touch, and a very romantic setting. Went three times, need I say more?
