On reaching Yaka drive very slowly, the restaurant is easy to miss as it is where the road gets quite narrow and you are busy watching for other road users. Such a lovely little place: a picturesque rustic interior with open kitchen to one wall,...More

All good movies are filmed, best novels are already written, rock'n roll has died years ago. So did yakamengen :( if you had good times there in the past, you can still visit but that's it. Do not expect more than mediocre.

Lovely restaurant and a fine contribution to Datça'sa culinary culture. It is worth traveling to Yaka Village to dine here. Cooks are enthusiastic, service is excellent, wine list is short yet interesting.

This is one of my favourite places in Datca. It's a beautifully renovated old stone olive mill with an iddylic garden, great food and welcoming owners. Check their opening times before you visit as they are usually not open all season.

Am I correct in reading on their website that they are not open this summer ? I was hoping to go there next week when in Datca.

Yakamengen uses their own products. Their homemade limonade is very good. The food was pure, healthy and tasty. It was the best restaurant we've been, during our holidays in Datca.

We sought this restaurant out because of the excellent reviews and it still managed to pleasantly surprise us. As others have suggested it is a bit out of Datca and makes an excellent lunch stop on the way to Knidos or Palamutbuku. We loved the...More

The old olive oil mill in the village of Yaka came to life in the hands of artisans. The stone building which was more than a century old was restored and became a Cafe - Restaurant. We invite you to enjoy our Mediterranean cuisine either inside the cool stone building or in the shades of olive trees in our garden. The restaurant is open in summer.
