It is unusual for me to find fault with the welcome, the service, or the value for money of a restaurant on the Datça peninsula, so I am putting my average dining experience here down to bad luck.

We visited this place twice during our stay in Datça and on both occasions we had good time. Both times we reserved a table during the day and were able to secure one that overlooked the pretty harbour. (This was in October so I don't suppose it is possible in high season). By the entrance they had a chilled cabinet... More

I checked almost all refrigerators of the fish restaurants. Only Emek rest. was selling Turkish fishes, all other had imported seafoods. We ordered a 1,25 kg of dentex(sinarit) for 2 people. I didn't see any dentex in other restaurants in. Actually september is the season and most delicious time of the year for this special fish. We-I and my husband-... More

This is your best decision in Datça. I am coming here for 22 years and never encountered a problem. All the mezes and seafood is perfect. Staff is the kindest. Cook is the loveliest. The view of the marina is a bonus to this ambiance. As I said don't miss this place in your visit to Datça.

The most delicious appetizers we had in Datca. The staff do not insist to sell things but they are helpful. The prices are really reasonable compared to other restaurants located seaside. You should make reservation one day before to get a full seaview table. We could not advise anywhere else much more.

Four of us went on a day trip to Datca and Emek was recommended to us for lunch. The harbour view from the balcony is beautiful and the restaurant is well lit and inviting. At the owner's suggestion we tried several dishes. We began with fresh greens with oil and lemon, calamari and a salad. A big, grilled fish followed... More
