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.

We had a lovely meal sitting in the 'birds nest'. The food was good; the cold white wine was perfect and we were well looked after by our waiter, Kenan! Looking forward to our next visit.

Used to adore this place, but oh my what has happened. Bring back Osman and his family who used to run it, because they were everything the current management are not. The food was very average and we did not get bread and the usual bits and pieces before the meal arrived. Some meals (and 3 people had the same)... More

Been coming here for years , beautiful place but what has happened to the food and staff! New staff that seem to have no idea what they are doing . Warm wine, inedible food. Such a shame , just hope they sort it for next year as we love going there.

We were really disappointed with our meal at Akkaya: the service was slow and unpleasant, the food just about satisfactory, and the setting difficult to enjoy - I've written a full length review on my blog (link below), please take a look before you consider eating here. http://anotherrubytuesday.blogspot.com.tr/2015/09/a-review-of-dalaman-akkaya-garden.html

Visited these Botanical Gardens as part of an excursion with Volcan`s Adventures based in Dalyan. The Gardens are beautiful and quite a cool spot during the heat of the Day. We climbed up into the Storks nest seating areas where we drank Turkish Tea,after this we travelled by boat along the Akkaya Valley.
