It was a little hard for us to find (our GPS would not recognize either the restaurant name or just the street name, and there is no address number). But once we found it, we were so happy we did.

The food was exquisite - full, clean flavors and cooked to perfection. Drinks were amazing (literally the first cocktail in Turkey that tasted like it had been made by an expert bartender rather than a waiter assigned to bar duty). The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. And they wanted to buy us a round after dinner, but when we said we were driving, they offered to drive us back to our hotel.

It is literally right on the beach, and we got their at sunset, so we had an amazing view over the Aegean. They also have spots on the beach, so if you have a day, head down for a day in the sand and R&R with the best food and drinks we found around Bodrum/Bitez and maybe all of Turkey.

It is right next to the Bitez mosque on the beach, through a walkway of small market (tourist) shops. If you are taking a cab, you should have no problem. Driving? Head to the beachfront of Bitez and ask for the mosque. Or, try calling them to see if they'll pick you up.

Next time I'm in the area, I'm going to stay in a B&B near the Bitez beach front so I can eat all my meals at Lemon Tree!

Found the staff very friendly and welcoming,even gave us a free taxi back to our hotel in gumbet(probably would have cost me 20-25 lira),which was obviously very nice of them.Food was really good too,and very well priced.Superb location also,just a stones throw from the lovely bitez beach.Always found bitez a really nice place and a lot cleaner than its neighbour gumbet.Always a nice peaceful stroll and don't get pestered by the people and staff in the bars!
