Just returned from Dalyan. We ate 3 times at Altin Tava. What can I say that's not already been said??? It's gorgeous, friendly and authentic with fabulous food!!!
1st visit - I had sea bass and hubby had chicken - the sea bass was amazing, with garlic and bayleaves in the fish.
2nd visit - we both had liver - oh my goodness - it was utterley divine.
3rd visit - I had courgette fritters, tomato meal, green beans and hubby had beef casserole. We both used our bread to wipe the plates clean and would have licked the plates if I could have ha ha ha.
As said before, there is no menu, but ypu can just pop in and see what's cooking and have a taste of everything. If you don't fancy it then that's fine. Sea bass is always available - that's what they told us.
All really reasonably priced with delicious wine and gorgeous cats and kittens.
Will be there for our first meal next summer

Dear Friends,

The new season has finally started. We owe you big thanks for your very kind comments on this web site. We do remember each of you with gratitude. Because we honestly feel special and it honours us having made so many good friends apart from guests of a restaurant.

This year we have not changed anything in the setting and the menu of the restaurant. It’s still the same garden away from hassle and hurly burly of our small but busy Dalyan. Something plus for this season: we have a new cow and goats that besides the vegetables and olive oil we can make our own cheese, yoghurt and butter as we earlier did. So the freshness and the taste of the ingredients doubled up.

We believe that it is not virtual names and numbers but the real people are taking us to the top. We’ve had many guests via this web site. So we again would like to thank you for having visited and will be visiting and remembering us. Wish you a very good summer holiday.

Altın Tava, 2012.

I love this place!!! It is probably the best place to eat in Dalyan, and there is always a really warm welcome from the lovely family that runs it. The difficulty is finding room for all the delicious food, so you have to keep going back to try everything you want! I usually opt for a mixed plate of the freshly-made vegetarian starters, followed by the best gozleme in Dalyan (simple lemon and sugar is my favourite, but there is a massive choice of sweet and savoury fillings). There is also usually a choice of three home-cooked main meals - different each day - plus a great choice of fresh juices, home-made iced tea, plus wine and beer. Everything is fresh, top quality and amazingly good value. And the added bonus (if you like cats!) is that you can watch the beautiful Turkish Van cats and kittens scampering about.

By far this is our favorite place to stop for a drink, stop for a snack, stop for lunch, stop for dinner or just stop for a rest and a chat.
The most genuine welcome from a very friendly family and explains why we have been returning without complaint for the last 10 years.
They have a limited dinner menu but the small choice has never been a problem with some very wonderful mezes and the home cooked main meals are an absolute joy.
Our first visit all those years ago was only for the pancakes which are without doubt the best, certainly in Dalyan and maybe further afield.

Fantastic place, not to be missed. The family are very friendly, the food plentiful and very tasty.
Originally started out as a pancake house but now do limited 3 course eve meal.
The starters are a meze of various Turkish tasters, our fav were the courgette fritters.
The pancake fav was the banana, icecream and choc, however, mine was the savoury meat and veg I had one lunchtime.
We didn't mind at all but if you don't like cats, they breed white cats at the back of the house.
There is no air con, but the very rustic area covered by vines and fruit gives shade at the rear of house.
