One of the best meals we had in Bodrum. Great atmosphere, location and setting. Best calamari we ate during our stay in Turkey. Great service and friendly staff. The Lamb dish was to die for, however the Baby Lobster was quite chewy. We also had the Special Dessert which was a fantatsic Turkish dessert with a twist, One of the best meals we had in Turkey, but slightly more expensive than most other restaurants in Bodrum.

Having been to over 30 Michelin starred restaurants the world over I am amazed this place doesn't have one, or three. You need to book as it's very popular and it will cost you a pretty penny but it's worth every Turkish Lira. In a sea (literally) of restaurants on the Bodrum coast there is this gem of perfection. I am currently too happy to write a long review but in a sentence. Octopus salad, calamari, sea bass, figs and ace cream. Capadocian White wine. Service is the way it should be. Michelin man, get there.

If you are a foodie you must eat here!
We recommend you make a reservation. The service was personal and professional. The food was exceptional and beautifully presented. We took the advice of the staff and ordered the grilled calamari and mushrooms with asparagus as starters. For the main course we had the sole with 5 different sauces and the langoustinas with raki foam. The mushrooms were lightly floured, fried and served with a buttery garlic foam that was to die for. We would be happy to simply eat this dish...every day!
The tables were placed in a beautiful hidden outdoor courtyard that was hidden from the action on the "main strip"
It is with reluctance that we write this review because we would love to keep this gem a secret!

It might sound a bit expensive but do not leave Bodrum without visiting Kocadon once in time. Fantastic staff with unique friendly attitude, great food and service. It is a family run restaurant but the management mentality is like we all are a big family with our staff. The secret garden location is stunning.As I say, you won't regret

We stumbled across this restaurant set back from the seafront, it was attractive because the owners weren't hassling you to come in and dine!

Prices are high, main courses around 55L to 75L but the food was good quality. They do a tasting menu which looked good, the mushroom with foam smelt amazing. I opted for the steak which was enjoyable, i think they lacked sides though. Would have been nice to have some potato of some sort or some vegetables to accompany the main.

Wine was best bottle we had in turkey.

For dessert we tried to tangerine sorbet. We eaten in many Michelin starred restaurants and this was as good as some of the desserts we've experienced in those. Its out of this world, flavour was amazing and probably will remember eating that for a long time!

Service was attentive and friendly.

Would return for the taster menu if we every go back to Bodrum!
