The White Lotus is one of the many restaurants that lay along the river front. Like all the others, the owner waits outside & 'begs' you to come and eat in their restaurant. I've heard lots of British people complain about this, but you need to understand that eating in Turkey is a social event, not just a race to see how many covers they can get through. It is also just about the best way to judge if the place is any good, for example, ask them what they like to eat, how the various dishes are prepared, how long their chef has been with them.

The good restaurant owners will delight in sharing their knowledge with you and the Owner of the White Lotus is no exception to that. Sadly I forget his name, but we were really well looked after, and the food was fantastic.

My daughter had a sirloin steak that was well over an inch thick and was cooked to devine perfection. Regrettably (having seen the quality of the other dishes my wife & son had) I went for pizza, but this was probably the best pizza I've ever tasted, it made anything from Pizza Hut look decidedly lame.

The service was good, the waiters friendly and attentive and we now had some more new 'best friends' in the Dalyan restaurant business! We'll definitely eat there again!

Just back from Dalyan, want for a drink hear most days being a single female it was lovely to have no hassle from the waiters just some good laughs with them. All the staff always had a smile and a hello even if just passing.
Meet a another single lady from holland and we both had a lovely meal together hear we had a few meals together but this was the BEST. Hope to return in september or early next year, i will be returning for both my ICE COLD beer and some more of your EXCELLENT food.

Friendly, attentive staff, a lovely atmosphere and great food. Mehmet, the owner (lovely guy - Turkish with a Welsh accent) invited our daughter to make her own bread in their traditional Turkish oven. She was over the moon.

We can highly recommend the White Lotus for anyone looking for a decent place to eat in Dalyan.
