“Fantastic service but average food”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We came here for a birthday and they really did try hard and made us have a good time. The guy outside called Tony or Dhony was really friendly and spoke to us alot. We told him we had a birthday and he got us a good table with decorations and they brought us a cake which was nice. We ordered the clay pots but it definately wasnt a taste sensation and was abit bland. Felt like we were getting bitten under the tables by mosquitoes.

Well done Tony but your food lets you down! would recommend as its better than alot in dalyan.

“Lovely ambience, shame they don't know the difference between lamb and beef”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Lovely man at the door who won us over with his spiel earlier on in the day, resulting in us coming back for dinner.
Had a mixed mezze to start which was alright, not the best I have, but others in my party were happy with it.
The main courses have resulted in mixed reviews. Our three lamb dishes arrived with beef instead, and given the time it took to cook there was no chance of getting replacements. The way the complaint was dealt with left something to be desired. They did however take a discount off the final bill after raising it again later on. We have had better meals so far in turkey and so will not be returning.

“Brilliant atmosphere”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Beautiful setting under the trees and good good. Staff are a bit pushy but worth persisting with. Not the only "smashing" clay pot restaurant in town but definitely worth a try. Price was reasonable at about 180 lire for 4.
