We came to Ogun's place hoping for good authentic Turkish Pides with our family of six. And the Ogun crew and family did not let us down. The crew and family is very friendly and they serve good food. We were invited in the kitchen to make our choices. The prices are ok, we paid 160 lira for starters, main... More

Very nice and friendly staff, the bread you get is 5-10minutes old most of the time and makes up for a very delicious appetizer together with some homemade tzatziki and humus. The pizza and pita's are all very fresh and tasty. Will visit again soon.

With a warm welcome, Ogun helped tie up our sailboat at his "place" near Datca, Turkey. We then enjoyed a wonderful day and several traditional Turkish snacks and a delightful meal. If I'm ever in the area again, I'll stop by.

In 1980 Ogun and his sister began rowing out to visiting boats, helping with lines, and inviting visitors to dine at their few tables--Ogun worked hard to learn languages and convince people to try their food--even swimming out to boats when needed. Slowly the family's business grew--as did his experiences. A Dutch family even brought him to Holland for a... More

Ogun's Place is at the end of the town dock in Ovabütü. It's a beautiful family owned restaurant serving great traditional Turkish food. Before looking at a menu it's best to go to the kitchen to look at the food, which they will encourage you to do. Lamb in a curry sauce, baked chicken with apricot, Turkish pizza cooked in... More

We came by boat with friends who had first visited 25 years ago when Ogun rowed out in his boat to take stern ropes and invite visitors to his family restaurant. He is still going and we visited for lunch. The restaurant was full of returning regulars - a good sign. Nice meze and pides, great location and lovely shady... More

Ogun' s place is a firm favourite of ours and has been for many years now. Ogun is a very congenial host and nothing is too much trouble for him. The excellent food has an international flare and his banana chicken and lamb and apricot stew are firm favourites of ours. At Ogun's you can always guarantee a good meal... More

Unfortunately my husband and I both had moussaka at Oguns and it was the poorest we have experienced in many years of visiting Turkey and Greece. The presentation was lacking, though moreover it was barely lukewarm and tasted bland. The staff were friendly and helpful, though sadly the food was lacking for us.

The night we visited there was a large group of yacht crew / guests eating. They all looked very happy so we decided to join them knowing that service may be slowed due to numbers of customers. Large seating area. Warm welcome from Ogun himself. Service was a little slow (drinks took ages) but we sat there quite happily enjoying... More
