“The best restaurant in Yali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We've been holidaying in Yali since 2005 and can honestly say that Ali Baba's is the best restaurant in the town. The prices ae on-par with others but the quality is higher and the service is impeccable. Always offered fresh baked bread and olives plus a bottle of water and usually a fruit dessert or coffee on the house. Haven't had their seafood so can't comment on that but their steaks, chicken and Turkish meals are fab. The mixed mezze is excellent. Lovely location on the harbour wall. Go at sunset - the view is beautiful.

“The best place to eat in Yalikavak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

We ate at a number of restaurants but found ourselves returning to Ali Barba's again and again. The service is second to none provided by the 3 waiters - Memet, Dino and Behan who were all lovely, charming and very funny. The food was all fantastic whether it was the fish or the meat. We tried most of the menu including the best sea bass I have ever tasted. They regularly brought us free mezas and fruit salads and would often insist on buying us a drink. We used their free WiFi often and when we forgot to bring our phones one day they even let us use the computer inside. Nothing was too much trouble for them. In summary if you come to Yalikavak you should go to Ali Barba's and enjoy the beautiful brie whilst having a great meal.
