You must make a visit to this Restaurant, the food is super, tasty and full of natural flavour - no additives or false flavourings, just good wholesome food.

First time I visited the place was a few years back. And I had thought what a gem this place is. I visited it a few more times since then...with good memories in general. However, this summer things were different. The level of service for one was way below what it used to be. We had to make the same... More

We have been to Ayana a number of times as we have a flat in Ortakent. We particularly like the awesome breakfast which after 20 years busting Turkey is simply the best. Wonderful ingredients from doughnuts to cream and cheese and hand and olives and cucumber and tomatoes and fabulous soda bed washed down by copious amounts of tea and... More

We ate here 2-3 weeks ago and loved it so much that we went back 2 days later. Again we loved everything about it: The view, setting, efficient service, delicious fresh fish. We came back after 2-3 weeks. The head waiter was gone, the sevice was bery inefficient and slow. We kept eating plain bread until our "meze" dishes arrived.... More

Had a very enjoyable evening at Ayana, not rushed, very good service. We had 5 meze starters Garlic Prawns, calamari, octopus salad, aubergine yoghurt and tomato and fried cheese rolls. Main was a whole sea bass served with wild rocket and lemon. All fresh on the day.

Our hotel recommended this place which we would have never known about otherwise. Tables are directly on a little pebble beach right next to the water so you hear gentle waves as you eat. At night, they have some dramatic lighting which was gorgeous. The service was excellent - everyone so helpful and friendly. We don't speak Turkish but that... More

We eat here on our honeymoon in 2013 when we were staying at the Neilson Resort in Ortakent, so we returned again in 2016. To get here you have to go to the Neilson beach and turn left - it is about 5 to 7 minutes down along the beach front. The restaurant doesn't have menus so you have to... More

Situated on the beach at the end of a small lane, this is an absolute must-go destination. With the waves lapping next to your table, the service makes you feel so at home. Choose your meze and fresh fish inside (they then weigh the fish and tell you how much it will be), choose your wine and go outside and... More
