“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

Well what can we say that hasn't already been mentioned previously?! This place is excellent - the paella is amazing, including all the salads and bread to go with it - Kim puts all her love and attention into her cooking. Our 1 rule on holiday is never go back to the same restaurant twice - we broke this rule for the first time ever and returned as it was so good! Sampling the mezze this time and mussels ... washed down with a bottle of lovely red. The chocolate orange brownies are a delicious treat after too! If you need any info on Marmaris that isn't tourist, Kim is great at recommending places! YOU MUST EAT HERE!!! Han & Chris

“Fantastic restaurant and owners!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

Me and my boyfriend stumbled upon the restaurant one afternoon feeling very parched and thought we will stop for a drink. Whilst sat there, the menu looked all too inviting and it's only when we went up to order food that the owner,Mustafa, told us they were actually closed but he did not want to be rude and turn us away! We went back a couple of nights later for dinner and it was perfect. Kim kindly offered to make smaller portions of the mezze so that we can try more variety. It was all very delicious especially the homemade stuffed vine leaves! We had shrimp casserole and moussaka for mains which was very tasty! Dessert was a chocolate orange brownie which was devine! This was by far the best restaurant we visited during our stay. Great atmosphere and lovely owners! Just a shame it was only near the end of our holiday that we found it! We will definitely return on our next visit to Marmaris!

“What a special little place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

My husband found this restaurant on trip advisor before our holiday to marmaris and we just had to try it. First time we visited I had the moussaka & he hand picked the fresh Sea bass, they have no children's menu but Kim was great & made our daughter homemade burger & chips. The meal was so lovely we booked in again for the second week to sample the paella... This was the best paella we have ever tasted & could of fed us again! The complimentary deserts are a very special touch to the end of your meal & both Kim & Mustafa are fantastic hosts. If we return to marmaris next year we will definitely be visiting the Drunken Crab again.

Thanks again
