“Don't tell anyone else!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I almost don't want to write a review for the Sunset Restaurant as if too many people were attracted to it then it might change!!
However, for a completely different experience to anywhere else in Dalyan you must try it.
Food is superb, the setting fantastic and best of all the host, Bekir & his 'party tricks'. Last September he had a party of 8 of us (adults & children) all playing a great card game with him despite not a word of English in the instructions and our Turkish being v v limited!
Best night out of the holiday.

“The best sunset view ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We were told about this restaurant by a couple we met on holiday and the four of us went for a meal. The owner came and picked us up from our hotel and we got there just before the sunset. The views are just fabulous and the setting on the terrace magical. We got some brilliant photos. The menu is small but it's all fresh local food and cooked to perfection. The proprietor took us back to our hotel when we were ready with a surprising stop on the way back for a beer! You had to be there! This was one of the best events of our holiday and really summed up how great Dalyan and the local people are. Would recommend this experience 100%. Fabulous value for money too.

“Truly spectacular - the view and the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This was our second visit to the Sunset Restaurant and this time we were ready to do justice to the food! The secret is not to eat too much during the day because you get loads of the most delicious dishes. What you might think is the main meal (salads and a superb cheese filled dish that is from the owner's native Georgia) is really just a taster. Chicken cooked on the barbecue, fish, a large meatball wrapped around a pepper, chips, more salad, more bread - it just keeps coming and then you have dessert!! Dishes vary but you can choose when you book,.
All this after you have watched a beautiful sunset, the sun falling slowly through a gap in the cliffs. After dark, you can see the lights of places beyond Marmaris.
This really is a somewhere special and a must if you are staying in Dalyan.

“Roy and Annies Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We dined with freinds at this lovely managed restaurant and were delighted with the food and outstanding views across the water to the sunset over the mountains.

It is to be a must iff you visit Dalyan.

Although the menu is limited it is well cooked and well presented by the delightful hosts.

Prices are most acceptable and the red wine was as good as any.

“Delicious food, great service, fabulous views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We dined at the Sunset Restaurant in September 2012, as a group of 10. The restaurants sits on the edge of a hill, high above Bacardi Bay and is the perfect place to watch the sun going down. The menu is small but if you have any dietary needs it's possible to ring in advance to ask them to prepare something more specific for you. Between them, our party ordered just about every dish and all were delicious and freshly cooked. Starters comprised a tasty carrot and mayo salad, a mixed green salad with a nice dressing and a lovely cheese-filled bread which is a Georgian speciality (the owner is from Georgia). Mains included marinated chicken, aubergine kebab and meatballs wrapped in peppers. We're vegetarian and so had two delicious meze instead. Extra salad and chips were also served. Dessert was a choice between apple cake and cocolate cake - both were very nice. Wine was very acceptable too. Food was plentiful and the total bill came to a very cheap 100TL per couple (appx £36) The waiting staff are very polite and helpful and the restaurant's wonderful location made our dining experience one to remember. Will definitely be returning!
