“Worth Finding - Dalyan's newest secret”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Begonville House is a restaurant that's a bit off the beaten track if you eat in Dalyan town centre each evening, but maybe that will result in it being less crowded than the more well known favourites. It's worth finding because it offers top quality food at family-friendly prices, and sells the cheapest Efes in town! Begonville House is a garden restaurant on the road the bus takes to the beach; it's a short walk from the taxi rank by the Post Office - you go past the mini-roundabout by Hotel Acar Park, and then it's just a bit further along on the right after Hotel Binlik. It's about a six or seven minute walk, but if you are staying on that side of town anyway you should certainly give it a try.

It only opened a few weeks ago so not many people know of it yet and we discovered it on the recommendation of another guest in the place we were staying. I suggest you go for a light lunch one day - they offer home-made burgers, omelettes, pasta, chicken, etc. - and if you like what you get, ask about their special lamb dish for your next visit. Don't be deceived by the simplicity of the menu, the taste of what they serve is wonderful, and they say the menu will become longer as the season progresses. It means they need a day's notice for their specials, but it's worth it. That lamb shank was the tastiest lamb I've ever had - slow cooked and served with Ottoman rice that could have been a dish in itself, it was so good. Most places you go to in Dalyan seem to include a dollop of rice to fill the plate, but this rice has wonderfully subtle tastes from the added ingredients. Because you've ordered your meal in advance, when you arrive there's no hanging around filling up with dry bread while you wait for your food - after a complimentary starter it's there in front of you! The lamb was so good that we went back for a fish special a few nights later. That was stunning too, but the lamb is the one to go for.

The house wine (both white and red) are very drinkable and pleasingly inexpensive so even with drinks included the bill only came to about £25 per person for the lamb special and about £30 per person for the fish special. The only downside at present is that it isn't very busy so there's less of a "buzz" than you might want - but I think you'll be too much in love with the food you're eating (and your dining partners, of course) to notice.
