Early evening as you stroll around the pretty harbour you will notice this empty terrace. From 7.30 the other restaurants begin to get a few diners, but this one stays empty. Why? Because every table is booked from 8/8.30. A local told us to eat here and because it was empty we asked why, we booked for the next evening... More

We went for a family meal and food was poor , I had the meat balls which was basically overcooked beef burger and chips, service was very poor as once they got you in your seat all they were interested in was hassling people on the street and when they did ask if everyone was ok with the food they...

Can't fault the food if you like authentic Turkish food. The mezes are excellent. Definitely felt that the restaurant valued their Turkish clientele more than the Brits and I was acutely aware of upselling particularly when we didn't order alcoholic drinks. This is the only restaurant we ate at that automatically adds a 10% service charge so budget for this.... More

One of the best seafood restaurants on the Bodrum peninsula which is very well managed. Service is superb, choice of meze excellent and fish always fresh.

I have been eating in Cardakli for several years and finally decided to leave a review after I've been there a few days ago. When I glanced at the reviews and I was surprised to see some diner's poor ratings on the food and service. I am not affiliated with this establishment but as "a local" who is fond of... More

Normally prefer to stray off the beaten track to dine as location driven restaurants tend to rely on just that to ply their trade. Although this restaurant is located among many others on the town Quay we took a chance & dined here some months back with the family (7) as the quality of seafood on display & attitude of... More

This fish restaurant is thriving on a strong reputation. I have been there several times but on my last visit, I left the place due to its mercenary attitude which left a bad taste. It is too popular so should be avoided for a while till it can come back to focus on serving customers and making sure they have... More
