Lovely restaurant especially for meat - the steak is wonderful, cooked to perfection exactly as you like it, either with sauce (peppercorn or Stilton) or with 'no frills'. Friendly, welcoming staff and live music to enjoy on some nights. Tables inside and outside. If you like football, look no further as all the big matches can be watched here, with commentary in one area and without in another area.

We are staying at the all inclusive Bodrum Imperial and decided to visit Vira's as we fancied a change.
Restaurant is a lovely place, full of character and atmosphere and the service is fantastic.
Can recommend the calamari and the fillet steak and the chips here are delicious! There is entertainment on a Friday and really gets that holiday vibe going.
If your in the area, you really should visit - also very affordable!

We went to Vira's on several occasions mostly because of the very good reviews given on Trip Advisor. It does have a number of things going for it. As the owners are an English woman and her Turkish husband who has lived and worked in the UK it does know how to cater for British tastes and expectations. In fact it out weighs expectations in terms of very friendly and efficient service. Maybe just a tad to enthusiastic at times - I was leaving and stood next to the chair I had pulled out to find one of the waiters squeezing passed to push the chair back under the table ready for the next users... a tad disconcerting.

Nevertheless, we never had a bad meal, but we did not get anything out of the ordinary either. Perhaps it was we were lunchtime visitors rather than evening diners? Fish was always cooked properly as were the lamb kebabs and even the 'Full English Breakfast' was pretty good. Our third day was, we think, the relief chef day as standards were not quite as high.

The food was never sent back but some of the touches need work. 'Salad' consisted of some large rocket leaves, half a tomato and a spring onion on one occasion... uncut and undressed... more of a do-it-yourself salad kit really. My garlic king prawns and chips consisted of five standard-sized prawns and seven chips... nice but neither filling nor fulfilling in the culinary sense.

Prices are reasonable and transparent and we were given a discount when we returned and the dining areas inside and on the beach were clean and tidy and pleasant.

However, I made the mistake of drinking two sodas so visited the toilet and this was an immense let down. The smell was awful and the places desperately needed a thorough cleaning, some toilet tissue and air-freshener and the tender touch of a good plumber.

If you want consistently good reviews you need to offer consistent standards in all departments!
