Improve this listing
Ranked #134 of 145 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.

“worst restaurant ever (rate at 1 but it really should -100)”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Visited this place once and will never ever visit it again the so called service was dreadful the food was only fit to throw in the rubbish bin. The worst restaurant that we have ever been to in all the years we have been visiting Turkey. Love Dalyan and thankfully all the other restaurants are very good. Some much better than others. The Other Side well named over the river and out the way thankfully. Never again.

“Hugely disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The beautiful setting deserves a lovely restaurant. Sadly this isn't it.

Poor food, chaotic service, poor value and, despite being nearly full, no atmosphere to speak of. If you're on a diet or not hungry then it's the restaurant for you. Otherwise it's best avoided - comfortably the worst restaurant we went to in Dalyan.

“Not worth the boat trip across the water.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

The food was very average. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed. However I would not go back and if I had read the reviews I would not have gone in the first place.

“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.
