The menu was very wide ranging which suited everyone in the family. We would highly recommend the mixed grill - the flavour and tenderness... More

Safran has always been one of our favourites in Dalyan. We enjoy sitting by the river watching the boats plying back and forth with a glass in hand and good food. We especially enjoy the baked crab served with a green salad. An ideal lunch now we have established that the crab is not a protected species!! A place to... More

This spot is IDYLLIC. Beautiful lakeside views, turtles to watch and a gorgeous sunset. The manager/owner is simply lovely. The prices are reasonable. And the starters were TERRIFIC.
