Simply excellent!

Dinner here was the best part of our day trip from Bodrum. We tried this place on recommendation of a shop owner in town and were very pleasantly surprised. It was probably the best seafood we have had... anywhere! Fried red mackerel was delicious; sea beam and wild sea bass were seasoned and... read more

Lots of lovely Turkish mezzes to choose from, and good range of fresh fish too. In a lovely spot on the harbour, and very popular with the locals, which is always a good sign that the food is going to be good, and the prices are very reasonable. Have eaten here many times on previous holidays, and not disappointed on... More

This is by far my favourite restaurant in Yalikavak. If you like freshly prepared meze and perfectly cooked fish then this is the place to come. It has the prime location amongst the boats in the small harbour. Whether enjoying a quiet meal out of season or the party atmosphere when things get busy, service has never been less than... More

Located in the middle of the old port at the waters edge, this place was buzzing with customers and attentive staff. Sadly the food was mediocre with some good dishes ( the calamari, the Greek salad and the sesemi desert) and some bad ( the lamb chops, the peppered steak and the prawns). The wine at tl120 was good if... More

Very tasty mezes, excellent fish choice (wouldn't know the meat 'cause I'm a fish person), very good service and a cosy atmosphere to really enjoy your meal & environment & (if you have) your company!

This is the hardest place to get a table when the town is busy; there are usually a lot of local Turkish customers; Not a coincidence because it's good. The food is good the staff are plentiful, efficient and friendly, and the whole atmosphere is good. We come here first every time we come to Yalikavak for one of their... More

We have eaten at Cardakli for quite a number of years now but decided to share our view of this fantastic restaurant when we realised in all that time we have been using it we never been disappointed with either the food or the service. As a fish restaurant it is second to none but Mehmet and his team will... More

The restaurant is always rammed, the service is militant and quick, and the food is fresh and cooked excellently. It offers a small selection of locally caught fish and mezes. It's one of the pricier restaurants in Yalikavak but you will always have a good meal there.
