Gonca Balik is right on the water in Torba bay. The food is quite delicious, service is good. It is not a luxurious restaurant so it is a bit pricy but the sunset is beautiful!

Traditional seafood restaurant with a great location on the beach. Prices are higher than most but the fish is very fresh and you can't beat the location if you are staying in Torba.

We would advise all to stay away. The location is nice but the dangers are that you will be shocked by the bill and not receive any decent service. A small octopus salad was at least 3x the rate of any good restaurant in Bodrum including those with great views of the marina. We had made a reservation and it seemed that the owner/manager could not agree on where to sit us when we arrived. Perhaps, they don't like to serve families (we have 2 young children). Also, the taxi ride from Bodrum (60 Lira roudtrip) to this area is not worth it either. You're better off staying in Bodrum and walking along the beach fronts near the marina area. If you do go to Torba Bay, go to another restaurant. There lots that seemed to also offer live music and were probably not looking to stick it to a tourist with extra charges and high prices for small items.

We stayed at Casa dell'Arte, so we ate there twice. We loved the location, right on the water, the setting, which was very, very nice. The food was good, but a bit too pricey for the kind of restaurant. The second time we ate there, we chose the fish and when we asked for the price, the owner / manager said 85 TL a very nice price for you. Much to our surprise, when we saw the bill, the price was much higher, so we told the waiter that it was not correct, when he came back he said yes, but we told him that the owner / manager had said 85 TL. It was not for the difference, it was because we felt cheated. Then the owner / manager came and as my husband was very angry, he said O.K., you pay 85, but this is not a good policy, because we dind't came babk. And the waiter was very angry with us. A pity. They should have told us that 85 was the price per kilo, not for the whole fish. A bad experience, after a good meal
