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

We have visited this restaurant many times over the years and although a bit pricey have had no complaints. This year all was not well and the staff were not attentive. We were rushed through our meal and had our starters removed whilst still eating as the main was ready!! Time to seek out some of the smaller establishments.

We had a very good meal here. The food was very good and we especially liked the shrimp casserole. The restaurant is in a lovely position overlooking the water and the staff are very friendly and helpful

It is one of the best fish restaurants in the neighbourhood, loved by locals. If you visit it for the very late supper you can be lucky enough to find a table without booking. It offers excellent mezeler and great fish. Prices are clear and the service is really top. You can enjoy a superb meal next to the ships... More

We were recommended this restaurant by friends who visit twice a year. Very busy so you have to book. We called in one morning to book, no one spoke English so had to wait till owner arrived. We asked for a table near to the port side a few days ahead. On the evening unfortunately our taxi arrived a bit... More

Probably one of the most popular fish restaurants in Yalikavak, situated in the old marina. Be sure to make your reservation on time; especially in weekends many Turks go there with friends and family. A good indicator I would say! Food quality and service is of a high level. Prices are higher than average but still quite reasonable for such... More
