We discovered this restaurant last year and decided to make this wonderful village our base this year. On arrival late at night we were greeted with a warm welcome and ate a light meal with complimentary homemade bread and olives before we were taken to our villa. Thankfully we were not disappointed, the villa was very well equipped with all... More

We found this restaurant whilst strolling around & what a find! The food was excellent, very attentive waiter & the owner also ensured that everything was... More

We have visited this restaurant for several years now and cannot speak too highly of it. Everything is fresh and home prepared with clever use of herbs and spices. We have never had a meal here that did not leave us other than delighted. There is also a swimming pool alongside so you can make a day of it if... More

Hidden treasure! We actually stayed in Hisaronu May 2014 we discovered this restaurant as we were visiting Kayakoy for the day. On arrival the owner greeted us and brought over some fabulous freshly homemade bread with cheese and olives which was complimentary. (see photo) As it was in between lunch & dinner we decided to get a few starters to... More

What a fabulous place!!! Their driver called to collect us at 9.45am and brought us to this amazingly positioned restaurant. Where we spent a wonderfully peaceful day relaxing by their spotless pool, wandering around the atmospheric ghost town and sampling their gorgeous food not only at lunch but in the evening too!! The service and attention to detail was second... More

We stayed in Kayakoy for 6 nights and visited this place once and didn't return which is disappointing as we first came here 8 years ago when it was a great laid back, quite, relaxing restaurant serving 'proper' Turkish home-cooked food. Unfortunately it has become too successful for its own good and now has become spoilt and just like any... More

Not my cup of tea i am afraid, the meat for the BBQ was left out in buckets on the floor for at least an hour before it was cooked as was all the salad and rice close by on a long service table. If people actually walk around and notice uncovered and unrefrigerated food like this and think its... More

We had the pleasure of staying one week at Selcuk Pension and one week in the glorious villa by the pool. It really is luxurious and Engin made every effort to ensure we were treated like royalty. The food as always was excellent and the service from Ilker,Emrah,Yusuf,Salih and Seher is very personal. I will be sad when Hasan hangs... More

We went twice to this restaurant. First time was a Wednesday when there is a la carte and a very good guitarist. We enjoyed the music so booked for Saturday, A big mistake. We were told to arrive at 7.30pm. We in fact got nothing to eat until 9pm. It was a very restricted menu and we were told it... More

I liked the open setting the friendly staff especially Robbie who collected us from our hotel. The food was excellent especially the complimentary olives and warm home made bead at the start of the meal and the gorgeous ice cream at the end. I can recommend the meatballs and the prawns. We visited twice during our stay well worth a... More
