A long term favourite. Food is reliable but not spectacular, while staff are friendly. Always fun to visit and chat with the owner, whose catchphrase is "Every day Holiday!"

Good place to see the marina from top floor. You can find fresh fish (you should negotiate the price before you order) and nice foods there. Prices are relatively cheap when you compare others.

Always a welcoming staff. A great view over the harbour in Datca. The menu is varied and all food we have tried from steak to fish has been very good. A good choice of wines are available and at varied prices. I would recommend this restaurant for catering for all tastes from European to Turkish.

We saw the restaurant from our boat and decided to try it. The food was excellent, we had a spicy lamb shish, served with rice, French fries and salad plus house wine. Everything delicious. On the second evening it was raining heavily. We could not believe it, but a waiter served three plates right to the boat!! It felt almost... More

Service and food was fantastic. Highly recommended. Showers were hot. Toilets were clean. We enjoyed the steak. Food was fresh and cooked well. Wonderful view. Busy in the evening.

Had lunch at this nice little restaurant right on the sea side in Datça. The food was really good, fresh, and the prices were reasonable. Had the fried fish and calamari and all was fresh daily catch. They also have non sea food such as meat and vegatarian dishes. The service was good as well.

Lovely food in a pretty setting. The staff were friendly and spoke good English (regrettably we did not speak enough Turkish to get us through on that alone!).

We waited twenty minutes to get seated! Small, family operated seafood restaurant. We had four different mezes, calamari and shrimp and grouper fish as main dish. All was great especially mezes were just perfect. Shrimp would have been better.

Lovely setting above the harbour, this restaurant is always busy. For good reason. The staff do so well with this busy and ever popular restaurant; service is warm, welcoming, attentive and efficient. Proud to show off the range of fresh mezes on offer outside the kitchen as well as the fresh fish catches of the day. It is popular and... More
