Sini is one of the best restaurants in Dalyan for authentic Turkish dishes, we ate here many times in the past 2 weeks and the food has been excellent every time. I especially loved the seafood claypot wich is cracked open at your table to reveal a delicious mix of white fish, prawns, mussels & squid. Also loved the grilled seabass and the pilic chicken which are all beautifully presented. If after all that you have any room left a lovely sweet baklava and coffee to finnish. the atmosphere is very laid back and staff are friendly and attentive without being intrusive. I would recommend trying Sini you will go back again & again.

Last night of our holiday in Dalyan spent with friends at this beautiful restaurant. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food is excellent and service perfect. Great way to finish a holiday. (our 2nd visit to this restaurant in a week). Sardal is the perfect host.

Excellent service in lovely surroundingsr. The menu isn’t huge but caters for all tastes. There are many unusual and traditional dishes, the Food was fresh and very tasty. We had a range of starters to share complemented but the fresh bread and dips and then main meals. All were delicious and well presented. There was a good choice of wines to suit us all. Service was friendly and prompt. We will return again this holiday.

We ate here on our 3rd evening and enjoyed it so much we returned later in our one week holiday - it was that good!

The side street garden (complete with uneven floors and huge tree roots and trunks!) made this place feel really Turkish.

We were greeted politely but not hassled, by a very pleasant guy who we remembered seeing at another restaurant, now closed down, on a previous visit to Dalyan.

Most items on the menu are Turkish specialities so forget it if your taste is only for sanitised chain restaurant diner food.

The wine list.... bottles will be brought to your table for you to discuss and select... we had a full bodied red (Patara) on each occasion and it was ideal to accompany some robust dishes.

The chef and team can be seen working hard in the kitchen and food is cooked to order, well presented and served with flair. Lots of clay pots to be cracked open and dishes with metal lids to be lifted with a flourish!

We soon learned that starter portions tend to be large in most of the restaurants and invariably served with complimentary delicious bread so we shared stuffed mushrooms, which were a generous portion, tasty and hot and went well with the rustic hot bread that came along with olives and spiced garlic butter.

Mains - Hunkar Begendi Chicken for me (tender tasty spiced chicken with a wonderful aubergine 'mash') and Lamb Skewers for OH.

Second visit we repeated the delicious shared starter of mushrooms and I opted for Topkapi Chicken skewer (stunning) and OH had the Hunkar Begendi but the Lamb version this time.

On neither occasion could we even consider a dessert as we were too full, despite sharing a starter!

Both meals came in at under 200 TL including wine so excellent value for money especially for this authentic dining experience.

This is our third visit to Dalyan and only came accross this place by accident. The setting is in a low walled garden with beautiful trees, low lighting and traditional Turkish music. The menu is authentic Turkisk and not the usual dishes served by everyone else. The food was outstanding, the service very friendly and at a very reasonable price.
