“"Simply The Best"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

My wife and I recently spent time in Fethiye and were delighted to discover Shaka on the new Marina.
Attentive staff, excellent food and a sunset view to die for. I would also like to say that the Menu was priced and the tourists paid the same as the locals (( unusual for Turkey).
Would highly recommend this restaurant, look forward to next year.

“Very overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended this restaurant and travelled from Ovacik one evening. What a disappointment. Young lady that took our order was pleasant enough. Started well with warm bread and balsamic vinegar and oil dip. I ordered beef fillet chunks in cream and mushroom sauce I personally don't think it was fillet that tough I could not chew it. Gave my husband pieces to try and he could not chew it and promptly put it in his napkin. Sauce although watery was quite tasty. Veg was raw and cold. My husband ordered chicken marinated in orange and something sauce. Chicken breast was very dry and had not been marinated just a Luke warm sauce poured over it. I left half of my meal and when young lady came to remove plates asked if everything was ok. Told her meat was very tough and I could not eat it. She apologised and told "head waiter" who came over and removed plates without saying anything. Meal was very expensive only good think was the setting. There are far superior restaurants in Ovachik, Candlelight and Aubergenes to name two. Also found out later that the owners also own one of the best butchers in the area. Obviously he is not getting his meat from there. Won't be going back.

“What a shame”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

What a difference a year makes, last September we went to Shaka alot as we loved it, it is close to our holiday accomodation, we liked everything on the menu and the big portions, fantastic staff and great location. Well fast forward to this year and after 4 visits, once for lemonade ,coffees and icecream, once for breakfast, and twice for dinner, we don't think we will bother going at all next year.
The new owners have reduced and replaced most if not all of the waiting staff and the service is just so dire.Painfully slow getting seated with a menu, always hardly any customers so they were not run off their feet, we then waited 20 mins for a highchair, the food came quite quickly, same taste and quality as last year but tiny portions and lukewarm at best, we gave up on deserts and waiting for the bill after no one even came to our table for well over 40 mins so we went in and paid and left they did not even realise then. The breakfasts were minute and a waste of time and money.We were so disappointed the last time we ate there that we did not even leave a tip. Come on Shaka what are you playing at you were our favourite restaurant last year and hope you can redeem youself before you lose anymore of you customers
