This restaurant is not on the Main Street but adjacent to it going down towards the beach. We tried it for lunch one day and loved it. The staff were very friendly and made us feel very relaxed. The food was lovely, we visited a couple of times and wished we'd had time to visit in the evening. A lot of people recommended it and we were glad we went. Lovely little restaurant.

We have eaten at swallows 3 times so far this holiday and plan to go back on our last night of the 2 weeks. Every aspect of this restaurant is first class. The welcome, the decor, the attention to detail, the staff, the drinks and most importantly the food. Everything my wife and I have eaten here has been a minimum 9 out of 10 dish. Particular mention to the fillet steak, simply superb. It would be at least a 50 pound dish in England, and the chef knows how to do it justice. I asked for it very rare and it was served very rare, something that they couldn't get right in anfora or secret garden!
Do you pay a premium for such excellence? Not really, it was cheaper than a lot of average places on the main strip. Well done swallows, first class experience!

We really should have! The food in Swallows was of an excellent quality, among the best we had during our stay in Oludeniz. I almost felt like I was eating in a high end 'Fine dining' establishment after eating in some other places on previous nights.

The service made the experience all the more enjoyable as the staff have got a great vibe about them and are very attentive, my compliments go out to whoever recruits and trains the staff as it is the best service we had during the entire stay.

I have to admit after ordering as we did on that evening, I was expecting a very large bill at the end of the meal however this was not so, Swallows is priced as well as everywhere else, so it is an unbelievable bargain to get first class service and food for the same price as most places. If you're ever down in Oludeniz this restaurant is just off the main strip at the top end but is worth walking up to as you would not be disappointed, my only regret is that we did not eat here again.

Visited Swallows for the first time this year and was pleasantly surprised. The food was great but they would benefit from a slightly more relaxed atmosphere and a greater English vocabulary from some of the staff. Will definitely go back next time.

We were recommended this restaurant and found a friendly and helpfull staff we came up late at near midnight and had nothing to eat on a bad sunset cruise. The staff at once sprung into action and the chef put on his apron and we both had a very good meal.
Thank you for our meals. Perfect even the English Breakfast
This is a place you must eat at
Good choise of wines
