We had visited The Love Boat in June when in Icmeler for a wedding and again on our return in September as a couple. Yes it is a little more expensive than most places here, but you definitely get what you pay for, which would have been double back home. We are both fish lovers but rarely eat fish out, apart from fish and chips, as find it seems to be difficult to find somewhere that doesn't ruin it by over cooking. I had wanted to return if only for the calamari starter which was divine (not from frozen) and wasn't disappointed when I had it again. We both had the grilled sea bass with chef's mash and it was perfect, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked without the inevitable chips, rice, vegetables and salad piled on the plate. The size of the sea bass was much bigger than we can ever get at home so there was no need to fill up the plate with all the other stuff. Fish lovers will understand that overcooked fish is truly awful and frankly inedible. We saw some of the other dishes being served to other diners and all looked of the same high quality. The whole experience in The Love Boat is of fine dining, with attentive but not intrusive service at an affordable price . Highly recommended

We visited hear in July 2023 as a couple. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly! There was plenty on the menu to choose from and Turkish dishes that we hadn’t seen offered at other restaurants! My partner had the peppered chicken and I had a Turkish dish which was meatballs and steak served on potatoes matchsticks. We both also had a cocktail. We sat on the a table close to the street, the restaurant itself is very clean. Prior to our mains arriving the waiter bought us bread and dips the bread was home made and delicious and the dips equally as nice! The cocktails were nice although slightly strong. My main was absolutely delicious! My partner also really enjoyed hers although we both agreed it would have benefited from some vegetables with it (see pictures below). The experience at this restaurant was a really pleasant one and we would definitely return! The staff were very accommodating and pleasant but not overbearing which we had found at some other establishments. We also thought it was very reasonably priced as with our two mains, bread and dips, cocktails and large bottle of water it came to around £32. Definitely worth a visit if in Icmeler!

We stayed at the Devamli Hotel next to the Love Boat and enjoyed the daily breakfasts with eggs made to order. It was simple, and delicious with all the hot coffee we wanted. The staff- Oskar, Sirden...all were so wonderful. They made us feel like we were the most VIP customers and we watched them treat others just the same. The food was incredible- salt encrusted baked Sea Bass, Turkish dishes, and just as excellent Western dishes. The whole theme was nautical and perfectly done. We loved it!!

Everyone raves about this restaurant but for me after a few visits i find it over rated and mediocre. The decor mimicks the interior of a boat but it is very clinical looking and drab. Could do with a refurb as it is not visually appealing and not somewhere you would want to linger after your meal. The staff are very friendly and welcoming but could be more attentive, we were not asked if we wanted deserts or coffee to finish off our meal. Food was nice but nothing out of the ordinary and more expensive compared to other restaurants serving the same type of food in better surroundings with more ambience

Was really looking forward to our meal but was disappointed. The portion sizes were very small and didn't look appetising. My husband ordered pepper chicken and only got a mini blob of mashed potato with the chicken arranged around it no veg, rice or thing else. I had salmon which was nice with a small portion of mash and lettuce, cucumber and 1 cherry tomato. We both had a fizzy drink with it but was so much ice in it and not much pop. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant there are so many much better ones in Icemeler that serve better food and are much cheaper.

Visited with friends as have been here many times before . The food was quite good but the service really let it down, the waiter who took the order didn’t know how to use the ordering system, one of the orders was wrong but they didn’t seem bothered. This used to be our favourite restaurants in Icmeler but during our 2 week stay we had a-lot better meals and service.

Ate here for one night of out holiday and quite honestly was a bit disappointed with the overall package. There were 6 of us eating and we ordered a variety of meals. The starters were all ok, usual stuff really, garlic bread, meze etc. We then had mains of differing types, salmon, sweet and sour chicken, spaghetti and meatballs and mushroom tagliatelle and chicken tagliatelle. The garlic bread was not very impressive and the tagliatelle dishes were very bland and certainly needed the parmesan cheese to give it any flavour, the spaghetti and meatballs were quite small portions and again not overly flavoursome. Given the prices of the meals we had far better value meals in most (to be fair all), of the other restaurants we ate at during our holiday. For the image they are trying to project, they really need to do better.

We have just returned from 11 nights in Marmaris and once again enjoyed an exceptional experience at the Love Boat Restaurant!! We always have a 'special night@ here during our stay and loved it so much we had to visit twice. My sister accompanied us on holiday this time and I couldn't wait to take her here! We walked by day to book the first visit and were met by Serdan, who greeted us so sweetly and familiar as if we had just seen him yesterday, even though it's been 3 years since we could visit. He arranged our visit the following night and my sister was blown away, by the attentiveness of all the staff! Urzgo was also there waiting and was fantastic too! The standard of the food, drinks selection, the atmosphere, everything is outstanding in this restaurant. It's quite simply the best we have found whilst visiting Turkey over the years and we can wait to return possibly 3 times this time, when we visit later this year again in September! Thank you once more team Love Boat! We look forward to seeing you all soon!

Visited the Love Boat on our second night on our holiday. Everything looked smart, venue, staff and menu. We were greeted by Serdon , who found a great table .My wife is disabled so they ensured she was happy. Menu/ Food very good in quality, and from someone who lives on the outskirts of London, really great value. We subsequently ate there every other night of our 14 day stay. The menu is extensive, we did not have anything we could critique whether the were starters, mains or desserts, or the house wine! Service excellent, food really good, there maybe cheaper others but as we ate at many other restaurants for lunch or dinner few that could match the quality. Visit and enjoy

We was recommended to go to this restaurant by the lovely lady from captain bull***t and we walked past the restaurant next door and they called us in so we went there instead! Mistake…….. terrible drinks food wasn’t great either and staff just pushy and guess what dishes and wine they recommended? The most expensive! Anyway next day we came here. Can honestly say was the best meal in two weeks in Turkey. Prawn cocktail was delicious prawns as a main spot on and the steak was perfect too! Even my 10 yr old little girl ate a fillet to herself it was that good. Wasn’t cheap at around £150 For 4 of us but quality was there and service was spot on too! Drinks all good and served with little ice bowl and coke in a mini jug. Would recommend to anyone!

We're on our honeymoon in Icmeler and visited The Love Boat for an evening meal. The staff don't badger you to come in, as they do at some other places in Turkey (I don't have a problem with this but it was nice to go in on our own accord). The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food was fresh and delicious. We had fried halloumi and bruschetta to start. Both dishes were lovely, the bruschetta was the nicest I've had. I had Carbonara for main and hubby had the oriental kebab, again both delicious. This was our favourite meal in Turkey so far. It felt more like fine dining, but the prices aren't really anymore expensive than others bars/cafe/restaurant in the area. The decor is lovely and the staff really look after you. Would recommend the strawberry mojito. This place is well worth a visit. Definitley recommend.

It seemed quiet on the night we ate there, don’t walk past you won’t be disappointed. Best meal we had in ichmeler ever.

Visited The Live Boat with family, 5 in the group. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was wonderful, couldn’t fault it. The staff were really lovely and friendly and they couldn’t do enough for you. The steak I had was cooked to perfection just the way I had asked for it. Definitely worth a visit.
