The most delicious appetizers we had in Datca. The staff do not insist to sell things but they are helpful. The prices are really reasonable compared to other restaurants located seaside. You should make reservation one day before to get a full seaview table. We could not advise anywhere else much more.

Four of us went on a day trip to Datca and Emek was recommended to us for lunch. The harbour view from the balcony is beautiful and the restaurant is well lit and inviting. At the owner's suggestion we tried several dishes. We began with fresh greens with oil and lemon, calamari and a salad. A big, grilled fish followed... More

A proper family run restaurant with all the kids helping out. Fish is lovely and fresh and all the staff are polite and helpful. And considering it is right on the seafront the prices remain very reasonable. Ok it's nothing special to look at but you spend most of the time looking out over the sea and boats so it... More

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.

Thank Ali Murat G
