“A comfy spot by the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is a lovely place to eat both day and night. The warm welcome from Ali and Mehmet, comfy seats and shade from the heat makes this a great lunchtime spot. Then as the sun goes down and the boats are moored for the night you can immerse yourself in the beauty of your surroundings with a glass or two of wine and a nice meal.

“Comfy Chairs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Genuinely, the most comfy chairs we sat on in a restaurant... probably ever.

The food was good, the waiters were friendly and the manager was very chatty and helpful.

Really enjoyed the stroganoff, and they de-boned the sea bream right in front of us. There are some lovely views as it is right alongside the river.

We tried the Kunefe for dessert and it wasn't... well, there was supposed to be parmesan cheese in the middle but I think it was just white cheese because it didn't have much flavour. It may have been nice, but it just wasn't to our test. The pistachio ice cream was FAB though and if we'd been there for longer we probably would have gone back but there's just too many places in Dalyan to try.
