Akkaya Garden Restaurant is one of the best restaurants in the Mediterranean Region it gets its name from the valley where it is located. Our restaurant can serve up to 250 people with its 10.000 m2 open area and 400 m2 covered area. There are plenty of places to dine in the garden with secluded seating areas or in a stork’s nest. The nests are positioned in the trees and can sit 4-8 people. The restaurant is located deep in the valley amongst the pine trees. It is set amongst waterfalls, ponds, wildlife and beautiful trees and flowers. The food is second to none with an excellent selection of both Turkish and European cuisine.

...this place is lovely regardless. Located at the end of a bumpy and long gravel road, you really feel as though you are exploring when you visit this place. We visited this place at the end of the season and after a lot of rain so the trees were closed. However they sat us at the top of their... read more

We recently spent a week in Akkaya Valley and, because of the geographical location of the villa, were obliged to eat each evening in the restaurant. First impressions were good but as the week wore on we became more than a little dissatisfied with the quality of the food. One of our party ordered the shrimp casserole which when it... More

Have visited Akkaya several times, and the food has always been ok. Service can be hit or miss - the staff work hard there, but sometimes there just aren't enough of them working. If you have the mini bus service, be sure to check the price in advance, as we were stung the last time we used it - ridiculously... More

Recommended by our villa rep and really glad we did. We had a table in up in the tree, very secluded. The food was excellent, mixed meze to start, a salad, chicken shish and a beef special. All very tasty and fresh. Baklava and ice cream to follow. All in all the food and setting were faultless, all this at... More

The garden is lovely with 'nests' up in the trees where you can eat and drink the good Turkish food. It is amazing to watch the waiters taking the stairs to each 'nest' to bring the food and drink. In the higher ones you really feel as if you are in your own space lit by hurricane lamps suspended from... More

This restaurant is in the mountains above Dalaman, with tables located in "birds nests", the food is good but on the Sunday we visited there were no desserts or fish as they had all been sold the previous night.

This truly is a hidden treasure. Set in a beautiful garden, peaceful and serene. The staff is very welcoming and the food is absolutely delicious. Everything here tastes better then anywhere else, I am not sure why.. is it the organic produce from up the road? Or the natural spring water they use? Or is it may be the happy... More

We visited with friends who live locally and they had raved about the nests in the trees. Right off the beaten track but very we'll signposted from the main road, I don't know if we would have found it independently. We sat in a nest half way up one of the trees, very unique and the view was fantastic. We... More
