Description: "Taste meets Art" is our slogan to define the management concept. Villa Rustica with its unique product as an old Bodrum house and courtyard across the sea offer the carefully planned Menu from Mediterranean and International cuisine. Dining under begonvillas or inside becomes more attractive with the fine Artworks around as collection items in our Art Gallery. Two suite rooms are also available for daily or weekly rentals.

“Special destination in the Bodrum Peninsula”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Gundogan is the coolest (climate-wise) spot on the Bodrum peninsula. Villa Rustica is a seafood restaurant/art gallery/boutique hotel. We stayed 3 nights in the hotel and had the privilege to taste all the spot offers. It is located in the middle of the Gundogan marina with a gorgeous view to the bay. You can enjoy it a lot if you decide to dine in the restaurant as it offers a great variety of Mediterranean seafood dishes and the traditional Turkish mezes. You will greatly appreciate the hospitality and service of the staff in the restaurant. Try the sea bass oven cooked in sea salt, it is delicious.
If you choose to stay in the hotel, however, you may want to think twice. You shouldn't use Villa Rustica as a hotel, as you will be paying ridiculous money to stay only to find out that there is a great water outage. We couldn't shower for 2 nights and when we could there was no hot water and the water was running really weak so it takes about half hour to shower. The price of this "luxury" is 175 Euros per night! And just an apology, sorry there is a problem with the water supply.
A beautiful as Gundogan is, there are plenty of great hotels you can enjoy your stay in with running water, as we later found out.

“Perfect for hosting your guests”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I was there with my wife together with our friends on a Sunday come-together lunch. The food served, chosen by the owner of the restaurant, was amazing. The attendance and the service was very well. A week after this first visit there, we invited some of our friends as our guests there. Our lunch was mainly of sea food . We all enjoyed our meal there. To keep it short, I highly recommend Villa Rustica to all who enjoy fine lunching and/or dining.

“Amazing little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

This restaurant was by far the best one, we went to in Turkey (Yalikavak, Gundogan and area) - we came back for a second time to try some of the great dishes! I recommend the fish-menu especially for the fried aquid!... And the shrimps and well, all of it was amazing. We also had two kids with us, who also had a great time and loved the food. It is beautifully set by the habour, and the waiters are very nice.

“One of the better restaurants in Gündogan”

Small but very convivial restaurant. The better Turkish kitchen. Very good service and good price/quality. Good tip : grilled calamari and sea bass florentine.
