“nice food annoying staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

arrived 8.00, quickly shown to out table on balcony overlooking road, menu's given, drinks orders taken, water, house wine, water.
Starters arrived before we had finished, bread and dips, starters excellent, mains ottoman kebab + sea bream, all well presented, and large portions + usual chips, rice, undercooked veg ( raw) etc, continually hassled by waiters pouring water, wine, and asking if everything ok, please leaves us alone, and let us eat our meal.
Luckily a large party of Brits arrived, shorts, t shirts, tattoos etc, so the waiters hassled them instead, relief at last.
we enjoyed our meal, well presented, reasonably priced, just wish they left us alone to enjoy our meal, and remember you are supposed to be serving our meals not ogling the females attributes.

“Holiday heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Quite simply one of the best places we have ever been to, the hospitality is second to none, nothing is too much trouble. We tried many restaurants in Dalyan but none of the food came close in quality to the White House, make sure you try the Turkish menu it is fabulous. They cater children equally as well & had our friends two, spellbound with a mixture of jokes & tricks.
Most of the restaurants have a very similar menu, so it is all about the standard of food & service, of course they want your trade, but it is never too pushy & you are never made to feel you are just another customer, if you have tried the rest & want the best, then look no further.

“Fab food and great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

I'm sure you've all experienced the front of house men trying to pull you in to their respective restaurants. This place was no different but it was done in a friendly and not pushy way. Great view from their terrace position and food was really good. The service was also very good and really made you feel at home. Def worth a visit. Ps. Try a Mojito!

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

We have just returned from Dalyan and had a few meals at this restaurant. It is located on a corner at the start of the main street. You can either eat downstairs but try and get up onto the balcony. You will have a fantastic view of the rock tombs across the river. The staff are attentive and the service was excellent. The co-owner is Mehmet who we first met a couple of years ago when he was the front man at the Diyar Paradise. The chef was also from there. I could not fault the way the food was prepared even when the electricity went out. Once you have eaten go downstairs and have a cocktail. The staff will keep you amused. Try and get them to do the Full Monty routine, very funny.

“The waiters are full of patter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

Our first night in dalyan and we opted to eat here as a family of 8. The service could not have been better and the waiters were eager to engage in conversation and flatter all the females in the group AND also the men which was very amusing. They have a good selection too accommodate all types of eating preferences. Some of our group chose pizza, some steak, some lamb, and some traditional Turkish fare. I would highly recommend the testi kebap which was so tasty. Would recommend and would go back.
