We revisited this restaurant recently only stopped for a drink, it's now renamed and new owners. Now called casa nova it looks clean and smart, food menu looks good with a varied selection we look forward to trying it out soon. Good luck for the season.

What a shame that La Vie has the most beautiful setting but has terrible service and food that really lets it down. I wrote a really good review for this restaurant in June but our meal last night left us feeling very underwhelmed . We were a group of five and our friend's meal arrived half an hour after the...

Fabulous is the only way to describe this restaurant from its position on the canal to the food and service. From the time you enter when you are created with courteous till the time you leave there is no hurry up !! The food is ex excellent with ample choice as is the wine list. A positive recommendation to all.

Ate here 3 times in a week it was that good, the setting is stunning over looking the river and tombs and watching all the boats go by. Service was exemplary not overbearing and certainly not rushed and yes a little pricey compared to other restaurants but worth it. We loved the grilled halloumi cheese starter and I can recommend...

Great location having an uninterrupted view of the Rock Tombs. The menu is refreshingly different and includes a number of Turkish dishes that aren't on the standard Dalyan restaurant menus. We had foil wrapped salmon, and grilled seasonable vegetables preceded by a freshly baked flatbread. The food was well cooked and served by very good waiters. Entertainment is provided by... More

Get there just before sunset and watch the sun go down. Fabulous views of the rock tombs and the river at night. The staff are very attentive, and the food wonderful, with a really good range of traditional Turkish food on the menu. Couldn't fault La Vie and have eaten there in many occasions.
