“Fantastic Food”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Visited several times whilst on holiday in Orhaniye. The food and service here is fantastic. We visited on a Sunday lunchtime and at first we thought that it was closed as there was no one around except for someone in the kitchen, however after much hand gesturing a Turkish man appeared and sat us down and then proceeded to serve us some of the most exquisite food we had ever tasted. Zucchini flowers sublime, followed by some of the best filleted fish with superb sauces we have ever tasted. Don’t be put off if you go along and if you’re the only ones there, don’t be put off, I think it is far busier in the evening, so worth a visit.

“Delicious fish in an awesome place”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Location: very nice, great terrace with an incredible view of the harbour and see.
Food: fantastic menu with an original choice of plate. Great starters (try zucchini flowers stuffed with fish and shrimp!). Excellent 'potato ravioli' in traditional turkish style. And also the fish was fresh and tasteful.
Staff: family business. The german wife was really nice and kind to give you any advices.
Cleaning: perfect.
Quality/Price: Very good. (the price are high but right for the great quality).

Hope to see you again!

“Beautiful location”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We had a great dinner at the Culinarium. The food was very good, although I would say it has more an international flavour than Turkish, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The location is very nice and the views fantastic. It was adequately priced for the level of sophistication, which is higher than most restaurants in the area.

“Unconventional food for a Turkish vacation place”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Amazing stuffed courgette flowers is as good as everyone says. When we arrived they were short of stuff and the owner/lady would serve each and every table, so it seems a bit hectic, but still very cosy and nice. The view was truly impressive and the food way exceeded our expectations. The prices are a bit high for Datça but worth every single penny. I would definitely advise this restaurant to my friends and family. Yes, and don't forget to try their gorgeous parfe & sorbe!
