I've rated this at average as I didn't eat or drink there so can't say whether it was good or bad but as you have to rate to include a review this was the most fair i could do.
It's funny as I've just read a couple of the more recent reviews and they too are commenting on what I'm about to...Bobby!! He is the guy who stands on the street getting passing trade into the restaurant. On one occasion, about our 2nd night into the holiday he stopped my husband and I and asked us to look at the menu, which is fine, he's doing his job and we were willing to have a look but as we'd already decided where to eat that night we wanted to walk on and would have possibly gone back another night to try it. However, we did start to misbelieve the 'sale' talk Bobby was giving us and starting feeling a bit sceptical about what he was saying. He was saying that usually in high season you need to book to eat there (hmmm), he said it was the only restaurant in Olu Deniz with an open kitchen so cleaniness etc can be seen by all (but saw many others like this such as Buzz, Help, Sultan Ahmet to name 3), he said prices are normally a lot higher but as it was low season it was cheaper (another restaurant also told us this but to be honest im not sure i believe this as none of the menus looked like the prices had been scrubbed off and refreshed as mostly prices have been written in permanent marker and looked well let's say 'worn' from the handling by many people over an entire season for example and look well 'worn' on the illuminated boards and we're only talking 6 weeks of low season from beginning of Sept).The icing on the cake is he had a sticker on the menu board saying that it had won the tripadvisor restaurant of the year 2012!!! At this point we'd had enough of listening and walked on saying we'll come another night, but then changed our mind when we looked on tripadvisor the next day to see if this was true and couldn't find anything of the sort and it's currently ranked as 15th in Olu Deniz!! Surely, restaurant of the year would also only be awarded at the end of the year! 15th is still a good rating so must be a decent place but wanted to write something about it.
So in summary, maybe there was truth in some things he was saying that can't be verified, but the lie for us was a decider in not to go and eat there. Sorry!
