Passed this many times before but this time decided to go in and give it a try and glad we did. We found the staff friendly and helpful and although we speak Turkish the staff were more than happy to help us out in English when we got stuck. We started off with balloon bread and mixed salad which was... More

Wasn't sure what I felt about an invite to eat here. To be honest it doesn't look very appealing. But the food was wonderful. There were a few things we asked for that weren't available but we settled on the lamb which kebabs and were really impressed with the meat quality, cooking and presentation. Not too expensive and a nice... More

Each year we always visit the Samdan while in Fethiye. This year we noticed that the restaurant had a total makeover and looks really good. However the best dining experience can be had by sitting in the street outside under the grapevines....just watching the World go by. We love to go to the fish market about 5 minutes away. You...

Just came across the Samdan walking around Fethiye. Had starters of fried cheese and a yogurt and cucumber dip and mains of Chicken Shish and a mixed grill. Food was plentiful and tasty, service was good and price with a couple of soft drinks about £17. Good choice for evening meal and glad we chose to eat there

Fab food, very turkish but so good. My wife is a back street connosieur and she raved about her prawn casserole and my pide was excellent. Great atmosphere, staff very relaxed, no hassle . A must visit .

I am not in the habit of complaining but this was without a doubt the worst dining experience of my life. The whole evening was totally ruined by the attitude of the owner/manager. Before being seated I specifically said I was vegetarian. I ordered a courgette dish, garlic mushrooms and an aubergine kebab. The aubergine dish was aubergine and some... More

One of our favourite experiences in Fethiye was to go to the local fish market, choose very fresh fish and seafood, then have a local restaurant cook it for you for only a few Turkish lira. In particular, rather than eat at one of the busy and noisy restaurants which surround the fish market, we found Samdan Restaurant just outside... More

We were brought here by the man selling fish in the market. Fish cooked brilliantly, sides and salad were delicious. Very reasonably priced with great staff. I would highly recommend.
