“What a loud obnoxious dump.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

Reluctantly visited this bar with friends and family, never again. Loud, brash and full of horrible in your face bar staff . Drinks were overpriced and average and not grateful when we tipped for service.it may look like fun from the road but take it from me you will get ripped off and leave disappointed .

“Awful place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I stayed in Olu Deniz 3 years ago when this was a small place and it was awful then. Goodness knows how it has got so big?!!! During the day it is ok but at night I called it 'Shudders'!!!. The only good thing is that they have a good range or football on for boys (when they don't have a power cut in the 85th minute!!). The music is as repetitive as the jokes and neither are any good. The bar staff are ok but the bar is overpriced and best avoided. You can have a much better night, with better drinks, atmosphere and music elsewhere.

“Not sure about the bar...but the food...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Popped in here one afternoon for a quick snack.I chose a Cheese Burger and chips, not rocket science to throw together, well for the 'Chef' at this joint it was! Limp bun, dry that fell into pieces when you bit into it, the Burger thin and luke warm at a push, had it seen a grill? all topped with the limpest most anaemic slice of cheese imaginable, only cast 12TL (about a fiver)...I should have asked for my money back even at that price.

(they do show loads of live football but reading other reviews about possible watered down drinks this has put me off visiting just for a drink sadly)

Come on Shadows, you've got wall to wall competion in the Town, food this poor is totally unacceptable.

“STAY WELL CLEAR”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Awful bar watered down drinks same routine every night boring!! I was out here last September too I was pregnant at the time so sober and a friend paid his bill we then got up to go to another bar and all hell broke loose the boss durmas said he hadn't paid and got about 8 turkish bar and waiters to beat him up they really kicked the hell out of him right outside the bar in front of everyone. Everyone in that place is scum they also charged a couple this year 200 lira for two lasagnes and a few beers it seems that it durmas hasn't made enough money throughout the season he charges more and fiddles bills at the end of season be warned DON'T go here! Awful place

“Time for a change Shadows”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Having been to Oludeniz 3 years in a row because it is a beautiful resort we have been to Shadows Bar often. The first year we thought ithe entertainment was quite funny, the second year we thought "oh oh, its the same jokes", the third year surprise surprise the exact same routine by same compare. Time to change Shadows, in any other job if you hadn't improved your duties in 3 years you would have been out the door. This is no longer funny unless its you're first time in resort. Keep up with the times and change the patter please!!!!! Also the cocktails are watered down so BEWARE!!!

p.s. Dancers were very poor this year!!!
