Ideal location on the quayside.Came highly recommended by previous visitors to Datca and very much a place to be seen.Mixed plate of starters very good but main meals of fish and steak mediocre for the prices paid.

Our visit was at odds with some recent reviews but I suppose we have all been to places that have been good on one occasion and not so hot on another. We were greeted warmly on arrival. Bread and drinks came quickly. The main course arrived less than a minute after we finished mezes. The staff returned at (not too) frequent intervals to check all was well. Quality of the food was excellent. We thought the prices reasonable (with the possible exception of the snapper) but we do have a house in a fashionable resort so can see that they might seem on the high side. We would happily return.

We had read so much about this restaurant but the reality was very disappointing. One of us had a fish which was good and which she enjoyed but the two of us who chose 2 different meat dishes found them very tough and difficult to eat. All 3 salad portions were very small and looked very tired. The service was slow with the waiter often ignoring us. To make matters worse we paid almost double in this restaurant for our meal than we had paid anywhere else for superior food and service. It is also definitely not a restaurant to bring a child to, the only one In Datca where a child was not looked after.

The food in Emek may be amazing, but we didn't stay long enought to try it.
We hovered at the entrance for a while,eventually waved in by a man, then proceeded to be waved to a corner table. The interior is crammed full of tables, with little space to move.
We then waited 5 minutes for a menu to arrive, after having to flag down a waiter to ask in the first place (there were plenty of staff around, but none made an effort to even serve us, let alone appear welcoming).At this point we decided to leave and go elsewhere.

There are many other places we've eaten in Datca where the service, and atmosphere were much better. The food may be fantastic, but I personally expect more from a dining experience.

This is our third year at this restaurant. It's been renovated this year and is now in perfect condition. food is really high quality. Our favorites are calamari, octopus grilled. For one time comers we recommend you don't eat fish but save the space for mezes and calamari, octopus etc. Prices are relatively high for Datca, although worth it. 20-30usd per person includ'ng drinks and fish. Service is at an optimum pace, with good personnel, who are there for years, which I believe is an indicator of the quality of the restaurant. Definitely recommended.
