We enjoyed the fish restaurant in Torba, you do need to check price of fish to now get a surprise with the bill mind you. Fish was really well cooked and nicely presented.

You must try the octopus! The staff are friendly and service prompt. There is a children's slide & swing at the back, which makes it very kid-friendly. Aside from the octopus, the seaweed salads and shrimp served in butter were our favorites.

Set in a beautiful location just down the road from our Turkish house this restaurant appears to have it all tasty meze, fresh fish and random additions to the bill. When the bill arrived it was listed as 112tl we had worked out the bill to be 74tl. Included was bread and water at 10tl (which seems fairly standard), however they had misquoted us the price of the two Sea Bass by 10tl and the meze by 3tl added this to this was an extra beer (10tl) that we had never consumed (and some very poor maths later). When both of these mistakes were noted to the staff we were called liars and made to feel uncomfortable, they removed the items. If you like nice food, lovely beach and paying more than you bargained for it's ideal.

The resort hotels dominate the beach in Torba, so there isn't a great choice of places to eat. This place is in a great location on the beach. There's a good choice of mezze for starters - mains are fish only which is grilled or fried and doesn't come with any sides. Thought it was expensive for what you got so would't visit again.

I stayed in Torba for several days and found this little restaurant to be the best place to eat, if you like fish. It's pretty small but has several outdoor tables on the beach and on a small platform extending into the water. There are several options for mezzo, and the fish entrees were fresh and very tasty. It's not terribly cheap, but it's not super-expensive either.
