We came to Swallows two years ago when we last came to Olu Deniz, and coming back this year to see Swallows in it's new building was amazing.
Swallows is different from other restaurants - the level of service is fantastic. All the staff have matching shirts and uniforms, and have been trained properly in how to wait a table. They won't bother you with pointless conversation whilst you're trying to enjoy your meal, but are polite and friendly, and very knowledgeable about the food they serve. They are attentive without being annoying, and are happy to bring anything you need.
The venue is fantastic, clean, elegant and stylish, and you can see that it has been well invested in, and is here to stay. The new building truely represents the elegant style and reputation that it deserves.
Now for the food! There is a huge variety of food on offer, from traditional Turkish dishes, to really good English dishes (not cold chicken nuggets and soggy chips!!), pizzas, snacks and lovely desserts. I would recommend the moussaka! Everything is well priced, and probably less expensive than what you would get on the main strip, but far better value. The quality of the food is like nothing else, everything is prepared and cooked freshly, and the owner, Ata, won't serve it unless he is sure it is perfect. Dishes will always arrive steaming hot to your table, and look spectacular.
Most people won't find Swallows by chance, as it's up the hill away from the beach, along the main road where the dolmus run. You can't miss it, as the gorgeous glass and marble building is streets ahead of the design of most other buildings - and stands out for the right reasons.
We first went to Swallows on a recommendation from another family at our hotel, and once we'd been, we would recommend it to everyone else, and wished we'd found it sooner.
You really will miss out if you don't visit Swallows during your holiday!
