“Very good Dinner for a very good price”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

We had mezes and fish in this restaurant. We had a very nice view over the marina. The food was delicious. The waiter was very good too. They were all very attentive. They had a very good price as well. Casual place and delicious food.

“Great food with great hospitalty”
Reviewed August 28, 2011

I've been going to this restaurant for more than 20 years. This is a family owned restaurant with a cozy and simple atmosphere looking over the Datca marina with a great view. They maintain the quality of the food and taste. You can have delicicous meze (starters) and go for fish (always fresh) or meat. I recommend to have "damat tatlisi" as dessert which is a local dessert of the area, similar to home made baklave with almonds. Datca is famous for its almonds and its products.
If you go to this restaurant you will never regret. Reservation is suggested as the restaurantbis always full.

“Great food, great view and unpretentious.”
Reviewed September 13, 2010

The port captain, Mustafa bey, recommended this restaurant to us. What a great suggestion. Everything we had was fresh and tasty. The stuffed, grilled calamari was really good. A serving consists of two pretty big calamari; it is easy to share between a couple of folks. Their green lentil salad was quite nice and not something I'd seen before. All of the other mezes were fresh and good--deniz bolucesi, patlican saltasi, etc.

After all of the mezes we couldn't eat a whole fish. So, we split the fish kebobs. They were great and came with grilled onions, tomatoes and the ever present roka (arugula). They have their own fishing boat. So, the fish is nice and fresh.

As a bonus you are one level up and overlooking the harbor. Our table was at the front and we were literally within a stone's throw of our boat.

“Excellent Fish Restaurant”
Reviewed September 10, 2010

Went here two nights in a row while moored in the harbour over which this restaurant overlooks. Everyone we talked to had told us that it was the best Fish Restaurant in Datça. Both nights we had (in addition to excellent Mezes) grilled stuffed Calamari and Fish Shish (cooked on Skewers). The first night was skewered swordfish and the second a similar fish for which we couldn't figure a translation. The swordfish was simply the best I had every had - no sign of the dryness that often accompanied that fish. The restaurant has its own boat so the fish selection changes day by day. They also have a very interesting Lentil Meze I hadn't seen before that was great.

The house wine is Angora so all in all makes for great meal at a very fair price. In September we had to book to get a table with a good view as it is pretty popular.
