Me and my girlfriend first found Swallows in 2012 so this review is a little over due. it was on are first night in turkey, they didn't pester us to come into their restaurant like most places did, they allowed you to look at their menu without feeling pressured. The visit was perfect from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. Over the past three years we have visted numerous times. We usually like eating at different places but Swallows is one of those rare restaurants which offers reliability, consistent standards and puts most English restaurants to shame... so we keep going back!!
The menu is very extensive and portions are very large, there is so much to choose from typical Turkish food to International Cuisine there is something for everyone. The food is magnificent and of an astounding quality. The preparation and presentation is superb. You get complimentary olives, bread and dips before the meal. All mains include rice, salad, vegetables or homemade chunky chips which are to die for!! It looks expensive but don't be put off the prices are very reasonable and is cheaper than a lot of average places on the main strip.
The restaurant has moved next door and has been completely rebuilt over the winter. It has been finished to a very high standard and is worth dressing for up a bit. It now has two floors and a lovely outdoor balcony where you can sit and enjoy your meal or just have drinks. It has lovely views from the top floor of the restaurant as it is all open with windows all round when the weather is hot or you just need to feel that lovely breeze from the sea. There is so many little touchs that Ata, the owner has adde. My girlfriend even commented on the extras in the ladies' toilet!!
Ata, Sefyi especially makes you feel welcome along with the rest of the staff and they give you a great dining experience. I can not fault this restaurant. They offer excellent service, fantastic food and are great people. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Swallows to anyone staying or visiting Olu Deniz. Infact, I would go as far as to say you would be missing a really beautiful meal in lovely surroundings with very friendly and attentive staff.
Swallows is a must to visit and you will definatly not be disappointed!
