Description: This is a new restaurant recently opened on the far side of Dalyan's River where the ancient tombs are located. It is a restaurant where you get a complimentary boat over to the venue. It specialises in freshly caught fish, seafood and Turkish style entrees. Though basic it is superb and definately not for the British Egg & Chips brigade. It is owned by Kardak Tourism who run successful tourist excursion all over the region and the restaurant is highly recommended.

“Never again”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

The food took quite a long time to come and when it came we wished it hadn't. We struggled to eat any of it and left feeling sick. To top it all the meal was very expensive. Overall it was terrible.
However the views were beautiful.

“Poor.”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Lured in by a man waiting by a shabby looking boat, I went across the other side restaurant across the river. The restaurant itself looked shabby, but if you look over to the other side of the restaurant it looks good. We were served by some scruffy looking boys who looked about 15. The choice of food was poor, I struggled to find something that would fit my fancy. When the food arrived it was awful. Also you can't even get a large bottle of water only small. An all round bad experience.

“Never Again”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

This restaurant location has so much potential. One of the best spots on the harbour. Unfortunately the restaurant does not live up to the expectation.The only good thing I can say about the restaurant was the 2 minute boat journey to get to it. The food took a very LONG time to arrive, and when it did arrive it was definitely not worth the wait. Very disappointing and would urge anyone thinking to dine here to try another restaurant. Do not be fooled by there promo staff.

“There are better places”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

This sounded different as it's across the other side of the river, but sadly the food was lacking in comparison to other places we ate. I had the pepper steak and whilst the steak was really good, it was then drowned in a sauce that tasted exactly like chip shop gravy. They didn't have a childrens menu, so my 8yr old daughter had spaghetti bolognaise which was cold. We mentioned it to the waiter and watched as he passed it to the chef who put it in the microwave, but even then it was still cold in the middle and what made it all the more disappointing, was that their prices were significantly higher than anywhere else we ate, just because there's no competition on their side of the river, which is inexcusable, especially as the Ley Ley restaurant taxi you out of Dalyan, but haven't inflated their prices. Give it a miss.
