Had 2 very nice meals here at reasonable price. My husband had a pizza and I had the sea bass which was delicious. A bottle of red is around £15 and my sea bass was around £7. Good value and good food but need to...book as its popular.More
Fantastic Italian food with fish dishes ,lamb steaks & risotto on the specials menu . Eaten here 3x within our 17 days holiday
Very impressed with price, food,service and busy atmosphere. Book in advance to make sure you get a table . Excellent 👌
Went several times and ordered different things every time. I was never disappointed. Their house wine by the glass was excellent
Service was friendly and servers remembered me upon my return. It was always busy, but as off season, they were able to seat me...right away.More
Normally I’m too lazy to write reviews, but after this restaurant I feel like I have to do it. So if you are true pizza lovers and in doubts, go there or not - do that. Pizza is wonderful, and can compete with authentic pizzas...in Italy.
Even though I care about every calorie I consume - this pizza definitely worth it.
Staff could be happier and more friendly but with this pizza who caresMore
My daughter and I visited yesterday (Bodrum centre restaurant). We made a reservation 2 days before. We were seen to in adequate time we ordered the neopolitan pizza to start which was lovely tomato and garlic, perfect as a starter. We both had pasta (bolognaise)...which had the most amazing taste. We shared the semifreddo desert which was just wonderful. All in all we had a taste sensation last night. They also don't overcharge like so many other places do. Excellent service and taste and value for money to boot!!More
We have managed to get the last table with 2 days advance reservation so that's how busy Bodrum was during Eid holidays.
Still, the food, especially Carpaccio and Pizza was very good, service timing was quite acceptable and staff very helpful. Also no overcharging is...taking place here and prices are perfectly acceptable.
I'd love to try once more within soonest possible.More
Recently visited the branch in yalikavak. We had to wait quite a while for a table. The food was good but it wasn’t extraordinary. The bruschetta was OK. The pizza was nice but it wasn’t the best pizza I have ever eaten. My biggest complaint...is who in their right mind decided to put cream to the carbonara. Anyone with a slight knowledge of Italian cuisine knows that you NEVER put cream in carbonara. It is just a cheap and not so delicious attempt of making one of the most delicious foods of Italian cuisine. The tiramisu was also very heavy and tasted like nothing but vanilla. It just didn’t taste like the authentic Italian dessert I know. But apart from the food, the service was very good and the prices were the best I have seen in Bodrum. Even though there is definitely room to develop, I would still visit this restaurant.More
Suggestion to Owner. Write in BOLD letter on your menu and your website (LIMITED 2 HOURS PER TABLE )
I truly wanted to change my mind since this place gets great reviews. However, Nope. Still the same unethical business practice.
This review is for the...branch in Yalikavak and not the other branch in downtown Bodrum. Still same owners.
The food was OK, but not great. Avoid the pasta as it was way overcooked, and the beef tenderloin tasted like eating a cardboard box (not that I had ever tasted one), but you get the point.
Here is the kicker, we asked if we have a reservation, would there be a limit on how long we can stay and we were told, as long as you have a reservation, no there is no limit. Guess what happened? We made a reservation for 6:30PM on Friday. We ordered Caesar Salad (horrible), don’t order. The salad dressing tasted like watered down mayonnaise, so if you like that, I suggest your order it on the side. Then we ordered a bottle of wine and a bacon pizza per the server recommendation. We were still hungry, so we decided to order another Pizza, and the waiter suggested it will take sometime because they are busy. We decide to have another bottle of wine. We got the pizza, and two slices into to it which was around 8:10, the hostess comes with the check and asks us to pay. We were surprised because we didn’t ask for the check and we were still eating. Then the owner comes, and tells us that he told us that we can only stay until 8:00 PM since the table was reserved for another party. Mind you, we had only one glass on wine out of the second bottle and 2 slices of the second Pizza.
Hold on a minute, we reserved a table, we were never told we can only stay until 8:00. Also, when we ordered another bottle of wine, and an additional Pizza, why didn’t anyone tell us, sorry you wouldn’t have time for the second pizza and the additional bottle of wine. This is an Unethical practice and I would never recommend friends or family to come here. This is not how we have experienced Turkish hospitality in the past 20 years when we started coming to this beautiful country. It is all about the experience and I believe this way of untrukish practice will catch up with Arka soon and it is owners. We will never come again as there are many places in Yalikavak with great views and food that are more focused on the dinning experience and not turning table over for quick profit.
This review is for their Yalakavak location only.
They limit how long you can sit outside to 2 hours or until the next party shows up. Although we spent at least double what most locals spend there ( 3 entrees and 2 bottles of wine)....They told us if you have a reservation you can stay as long as you like; unlike the years before . Then after we ordered the food and another bottle of wine we were told we need to leave and that our time is up. The owner was very rude about it and was aggressively telling we need to leave when we asked why they let us order another bottle of wine and more food 10 minutes before then. We didn’t want to make a scene so we got the check and left. If you want amazing service and even a better view and food go to CookShop in the Yalikavak Marina they have pizza and pasta as well. They treat you with respect as a paying customer.More
Located down an alleyway from the main pedestrian street. It is very popular with tables both inside and out. Pizzas are fine without being spectacular. I have eaten here a number of times. Service is good.
They also have a branch in Yalikavak where you...can sit outside with a view of the harbour. A better bet perhaps.More
The place was overcrowded, the service could not keep up with the customers. We waited for a good 45 minutes for a pizza. The crust was flimsy, risotto was dry. Waiters were rude, when asking about our order we were told it had been 40...minutes and not fifty... Worse than mediocre. Could have been a nice place if they halved the chairs.More
