“Free meal”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We were given a free meal by Blue Bay Platinum since we had got moved there from another hotel, although the Platinum was much better! The food was really nice, but the garlic bread was really thin. We had a really good time at the restaurant, even though it was really quiet!

“Service top class and meals superb”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We ate here on the last night of our holiday as we were staying all inclusive at the Blue Bay Platinum Hotel which is the adjoining hotel to the restaurant. We found this excellent value as we received a discount with being hotel guests and were given free garlic bread, a bread basket and fruit platter which was a nice touch. Service was swift and we didn't have to wait long for our meals to arrive and all were delicious. Steak cooked to perfection, lamb cutlets very tender and tasty, peppered chicken so juicy and sauce had a good kick to it and pizza light crispy and very tasty. Sweets of homemade ice cream, profiteroles and cheesecake again all looked and tasted amazing! Ask for a table outside its a lovely place to eat watching the world go by and nice and cool as well!

“Excellent Food, Drink & Service”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

For an excellent, good quality, fairly priced meal you can't go far wrong in visiting Il Primo in Marmaris. I have had several very good meals there - from pasta to fish and the most deliciously cooked steak.
On the plus side the staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.

“Freebie”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We got a free meal in this restaurant from Blue Bay Platinum Hotel which is next door to Il Primo. We visited the restaurant on a Saturday night, 06/04/2013 at 7 pm. There was only one more couple in the restaurant so I was a little suspicions but thought it may be due to the fact the season has not yet started.

We asked to be seated outside as it was a nice night. The football was blaring inside the restaurant so I thought sitting outside might be a little more peaceful and quiet. Well it was not to be as added to traffic noise we also had some very loud football yet again. The restaurant is passed off as an a la cart restaurant however it felt like we were in a sports bar or pub.

We were served food that we did not order, I was rather surprised bearing in mind there was only one more couple in the whole place. Once our food arrived it was just average. Quite a small sea bass with salad. Very plain and tasteless, no seasoning neither on the fish nor on the salad. One a more positive side the waiter has offered to take the head and the bones out of the fish, so that was much appreciated.

The other meal was a chicken kebab that was nice but not outstanding. Due to no ambiance in the place, the topsie-turvie serving and really loud live football we decided not to stay for a dessert.

If you are a football fanatic then the place is great otherwise I would most definitely not pass it down as an a la cart restaurant!! Service also needs to improve, waiter was distracted and more interested in the passers by and the football than his guests.

Not a place I will visit again, I am afraid. If it wasn't for free I would have walked out after the first 5 mins. Sorry
