Superb!

It is one of the best fish restaurants in the neighbourhood, loved by locals. If you visit it for the very late supper you can be lucky enough to find a table without booking. It offers excellent mezeler and great fish. Prices are clear and the service is really top. You can enjoy a superb meal... read more

We were recommended this restaurant by friends who visit twice a year. Very busy so you have to book. We called in one morning to book, no one spoke English so had to wait till owner arrived. We asked for a table near to the port side a few days ahead. On the evening unfortunately our taxi arrived a bit... More

Probably one of the most popular fish restaurants in Yalikavak, situated in the old marina. Be sure to make your reservation on time; especially in weekends many Turks go there with friends and family. A good indicator I would say! Food quality and service is of a high level. Prices are higher than average but still quite reasonable for such... More

The owner was very clear that, despite their menu suggesting otherwise, this restaurant doesn't sell meat dishes (well, certainly not for dinner). This was enough for my teenage sons to want to leave as they will not fight with bones. However the owner was very happy to fillet all of the fish, remove the heads etc and present it nicely...

This is another in a long line of overhyped overpriced harbour restaurants. In my opinion they offer average food for way above average prices. If you are a regular in this place you are welcomed like a member of their family. If not then they will try and fit you in amongst the ones that are. Waiter service is very... More

This is the by far the best seafood and meze restaurant in yalikavak. Right by the harbour giving excellent views of the setting sun. A fantastic selection of fresh fish cooked to perfection. As always the staff are friendly and the service impeccable. Always a great night out and would highly recommend you give it a try.

Cardakli was recommended by our hotel host. We first walked the marina to get a feel for the area and to see what was on offer. After doing the circuit it was apparent that this is the place where the locals come to eat. We tried to get a table and there was a 1 hour wait. Luckily our host... More
