“best fish restaurant in old downtown area Yalikavak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We had a lovely night at Cardakli. We were passing by, just went in and had a long, wonderful dinner. Everything we ate was so fresh and tasty, customers were all there to enjoy the evening, service and cleanliness were great and the staff was wonderful. We were lucky to enjoy the old oven/stove in the middle burning and chestnusts being roasted on top. Wish you all the best. Dilek- Maurice Danon

“Great sea front restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is a great little restaurant right on the sea front in Yalikavak. The service is friendly and food we had excellent. We would especially recommend the grilled Calamari, fresh fish dishes and the pepper steaks . After eating there we went back again and quality of the food was good both times.

“Good food, but service less so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We were a little disappointed by our visit here given the reviews. As a vegetarian I am used to not having many options when travelling but here the dinky option was an omelette. Fancying a break from Turkish food I tried to order one only to be told that these were only available at lunchtime despite it not saying so on the menu (other lunchtime only options were stated on the menu). I was able to have some memes as a main which were tasty but the portions (particularly the salad) were much smaller than other restaurants we ate at for the same price. The drive of the fish went down considerably when my husband decided against having it and we did feel like they were really pressurising us to order it. In general we felt quite rushed as our main course arrived when we were only half way through our starters. Whilst the food was tasty the overall experience wasn't great - we found better restaurants in Yali.

“Excellent service and food. Very friendly atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Lovely meze, loved the courgette flowers especially. The grilled squid and salad dressed with pomegranate was just the best. Had to sit inside because it was so windy but the atmosphere didn't suffer. Will go again. Very affordable too. Good house wine.

“Beautiful location, delightful service and delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

This restaurant came highly recommended by some locals, so we decided to give it a try. After a meze style starter with some perfectly grilled baby calamari, we shared a selection of freshly caught fish with salad, finishing with a plate of fresh fruit. Everything was delicious and very fresh. The waiting staff went to great lengths to make sure we had what we wanted. Sitting in the corner of the harbour, watching the sun go down, this was a magical way to spend an evening. A couple of days later we went back for the Turkish breakfast and enjoyed that too!
