Improve this listing
Ranked #132 of 138 restaurants in Dalyan
Cuisines: Turkish
Description: This is a new restaurant recently opened on the far side of Dalyan's River where the ancient tombs are located. It is a restaurant where you get a complimentary boat over to the venue. It specialises in freshly caught fish, seafood and Turkish style entrees. Though basic it is superb and definately not for the British Egg & Chips brigade. It is owned by Kardak Tourism who run successful tourist excursion all over the region and the restaurant is highly recommended.

“Still disappointing!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Since we repeated the boat trip of the previous year, we took a packed lunch, knowing this was to be our lunch time destination. Nothing had changed. We had hoped not to be reduced to our packed lunch, but alas, this was not to be! The food was once again dire, with the added interest of a cloud of insects around the tables. Its a shame. The restaurant looks nice, but again, I and a fellow guest had to pick up three plates from the buffet before we found a really clean one. Not good.

“Stay away!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Free boat trip was nice but the food was terrible! It left a bad taste in the mouth for the whole rest of the evening. Unable to leave there.

“Wasp Seige”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

Visited as part of a Kardak (?) boat trip & included in the price but as we were afloat & famished so no option but to stay there (or swim back!?)
The water melon was under a wasp attack (as were nearly we). The waiter wiped his nose & then cut the bread.
Looks great (particularly at night under the tombs) but other than that not my cup of tea. Avoid or take wasp killer or sarnies.

“Disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

We decided to try the Other Side restaurant for lunch but, apart from the buffet, the food was very limited and the meals were terrible.
The buffet was being kept warm in open containers and every dish had flies crawling over it. Best avoided !!!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

We went with a day trip offering a buffet at this restaurant as part of the price. We were glad we had not taken the trouble to cross the river and pay for our meal. The buffet was bland and poorly prepared, I went through 3 plates before I found a clean one. My husband was unable to eat the majority of his food, and I, the least fussy of people, found it very dry and bland, with little real variety. Looking at the prices for paying punters, we were mildly horrified. It is certainly not one of the cheaper places to eat, and you have to sit and wait for the boat to return before you can get back. Generally, not really a good bet.
