We found this wonderful small restaurant and we had a great dinner. We were with a group of 5 friends. We all liked it so much, that we decided to go back the... More

We had excellent anniversary meal here. Not your standard Turkish fare. The prawn starter was excellent and the two lamb dishes we tried were exceptional.

Best food in Datca, no doubt about it. John Dory (fish) was extremely well done. Very efficient and "disciplined" service. Great view. What more do you need?

First, the location of the restaurant is very good with a great view of the harbour. Second, the owners a Turkish-German couple are extremely kind and helpful. And the food is super delicious!

This is a fantastic restaurant, serving by far the best food in Datca. The ravioli to start is perfection and the meat is always cooked beautifully. Highly recommend this place - booking is essential in summer months.

What a great place, fantastic freshly prepared food, using local ingredients to create very good, but not your typical, Turkish food. Lovely Ravioli and pasta, also beef and saddle of lamb. Oh yes and a great view over the bustling harbour enhanced by the moon rising over Simi. A great find.
