“Nice food but service was extremely poor”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

The meal started out wonderfully, food was lovely and reasonably priced for a restaurant on the beach, however the experience soon decayed into a purgatorial hell, generated by the rudest brute of a waiter, I have ever had the displeasure of crossing paths with. He mocked my meal selection and I am quite certain he sulked when I refused to buy some of the severely overpriced fish. Not even a flicker of a smile crossed from his charmless (sweaty) face at any point during the meal. Unless you go there with the intention of heavily tipping before you receive your food, don't expect the staff to create a pleasant atmosphere.
This was the first and only negative experience we had throughout the whole of our 3 week stay.

“good food and romantic restaurant : rude service”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

it is a good place to go and the setting is very romantic. beware of the service though. if you do not tip as they expect they will treat you badly (and the tip expectation is based on how they think the hotel which made the reservation is expensive). so if you stay at the mandarin -and they are aware of this -expect to pay big tips.

“Wonderful Atmosphere Value For money”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

It is located just besides the unique bays of Aegean Sea in Bodrum, Turkey. You can have the opportunity of delicious Sea Food in a very enjoyfull atmosphere created not only the managers but also the staff working there. I highly recommend you to taste as little as in every item for starters. But cooking fish is an art for them. When you compare the prices with the same standards in any popular Greek Island it is much cheaper and I can say that it deserves every Cents that you will spend there.
Thank you to you all Garos'

“Overhyped cuisine and unremarkable experience”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

The owner understands the client psyche and knows how to manipulate it. This is the only explanation for this overhyped eatery, which is unremarkable in everyway. Firstly, the location - it is in the worser part of Turkbuku than nearly all the other restaurants. It has construction next to it, and a gigantic dusty car lot for people to park and honk at. There are a bunch of stray cats and dogs that are running around and looking at you and your food. Secondly, the prices - it is very expensive for what it is. Third, the service - it is no better than in any other restaurant that charges as much. Finally, the food itself is quite OK and fairly tasty, but then again, there are so many nice restaurants that offer all of that and more in Turkey, and specifically, in Turkbuku and in Bodrum.
