We have visited Dalyan a number of times (5 now) and stay at the Metin Hotel which is about 50 yards from this delightful restaurant. It looks a little like a Greek Taverna with its blue and white decor but is definitely Turkish. The owners are a charming couple who really make dining there a special, laid back experience. There is no pushy waiter on the door and the menu is a bit different to all the other restaurants in Dalyan. They cook a wonderful, fresh steak. It's easy to pass this place by but don't! They are also on the list of restaurants who are helping the street animal charity to provide food (not at the restaurant!) and vet care to the many homeless dogs and cats in the town. Highly rcommended.

We ate here during our first week's holiday and enjoyed it so much we went back with friends who came out to stay with us, during our second week. The steaks were delicious and priced at 30TL. I had the pepper steak the second time around and the others in the party at the chile steak. Evidence of how good the food was - nothing left on any plates! We were given a selection of ice creams free which went down very well.

I would highly recommend you try this place. As noted above, no dragging in off the street and no puppies/kittens etc to encourage you to stop! Also very handy for the Dalyano Bar.

Seems to get some great ratings particularly for fish and meat. If you are a vege then I would avoid going for the mixed meze plate instead of a main. I ended up going to another restaurant for more food. Otherwise fill up on the bread!

Mai is the lovely little restaurant just of the mainshoppingstreet in Dalyan (on the cross you go one way to the Donmez hotel, the other direction is Mai restaurant) and very centrally located.
They have 4 veggiemenu's. What is so nice is that the menu consists of 5 different things. We ate vegetarian moussaka the night before in another restaurant but that always drowns in fat. This menu we had was absolutely not fatty! It was really lovely. And more: a bottle of nice tasting housewine was only 25TL, very cheap for Turkish standards.
It is the restaurant with the lovely blue and white wooden chairs, bit like Greece.
