Description: Akkaya Garden Restaurant is one of the best restaurants in the Mediterranean Region it gets its name from the valley where it is located. Our restaurant can serve up to 250 people with its 10.000 m2 open area and 400 m2 covered area. There are plenty of places to dine in the garden with secluded seating areas or in a stork’s nest. The nests are positioned in the trees and can sit 4-8 people. The restaurant is located deep in the valley amongst the pine trees. It is set amongst waterfalls, ponds, wildlife and beautiful trees and flowers. The food is second to none with an excellent selection of both Turkish and European cuisine.

“Fantastic Place”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

We booked a week in a local villa, based on the website for the restaurant, and we were not disappointed. The setting is amazing, and the stork nest tables were a lot of fun. The food is also very good.
If you get chance, go for a day, and take a boat ride up the lake. It is a dammed river so the water is cold and fresh year round. it follows a deep gorge, winding up into the mountains. there is a small bar on the shore where you cat get a bite to eat, and swim in the river. En-route, there is a mud bath which the kids (and me!) loved.
It is hard to believe that this place is only half an hour from Dalaman Airport.It is a well kept secret for those lucky enough to stumble upon it

“Paradise in the trees!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We eat here regularly when in Turkey and always find it a rewarding experience. Food is good and fun atmosphere is created by friendly waiters. aaseating in the trees is unique and always enjoyed when we eat there as a family.

“Total let down on transfer”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

A group of ten of us were staying in Dalyan in August this year.Went on the Akkaya Garden web site where they advertise a tranfer to their restaurant.Booked a pick up in Dalyan for 1.0 pm for a meal and their river boat trip.No show at 1.20.After several phone calls which were answered with"we are on the way will be ther in 5 mins" still no vehicle by 2.20 having stood in 35' degree heat for 80 mins!! We then gave up.DON'T BOTHER WTH THIS TRANSFER SERVICE AS THEY CAN'T DELIVER ON THEIR PROMISE.
Hae driven this reataurant previously and its good but won't be going or recommending to others again.

“A beautiful hidden Paradise”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We have just returned from a 3 week holiday in dalaman and had the pleasure of eating here twice. This place is stunning in every way. They provide a pick up and drop off service for about 50tl but its so worth it as the drive up the mounting is not an easy ride even as the passenger. When you arrive the places looks wonderful, big but full of atmosphere, the service is outstanding, food delicious and best of all the fact you eat up in trees safely places in big nests. What made our time here so special was Osman the manager who on both occasions came and sat with our family in the nest, he drank his tea and made us feel so welcome. This place is great for all, family friends or romance as its big enough to get your privacy or join in with the staff at the bar who are happy to have a sing and dance to get he evening going, there unlimited energy is shocking as they spend the whole evening running round the place serving tables to make sure you get the best service. Can't wait to go back next year.

“Should be better than it is !!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This restaurant has a stunning setting but the food and service is inconsistent, we had 2 very good meals and 2 very poor meals ( under cooked ). they need to stop taking for granted their "captive audience" of the villa owners/ renters in the Akkaya area developments and concentrate on providing some real customer service. If they they were to do this they could have a wonderful restaurant !
