Day trip to Side, wandering around the market area and found this restaurant on the sea front. Excellent food, service, spectacular location overlooking the med. The chicken kebab came in a traditional clay pot - like a chicken stew - lovely. Not expensive by UK...standards.More

We looked for a good restaurant on the shore where we could enjoy the view and hear the waves hitting the rocks. Well that is what we found. That we had a dinner under a full moon was a bonus. It is a perfect location....Our dinner was very good, the staff professional and the price was very reasonable. We could really recommend this restaurant.More

It's our 4th visit to this Restaurant, no hard sell trying to get you to eat hear, the food is consistently good, and freshly made, I'm sure we will squeeze another visit before we leave, the restaurant faces out to sea with the waves crashing...on the rocks, and although it's in the old town of side, it feels as if you are out of the hussel and bussel of the surrounding area, I would definitely recommend that you have a try of this place.More

We visited with friends for lunch and dinner we could not fault the food and we could not be fault the service or the staff, attentive, polite and offered impartial menu recommendations. I cannot praise the staff highly enough and the location of the Moonlight...Restaurant is quite honestly the cherry on the cake. They will also pick you up and drive you to the restaurant in the evening if required.More

We were enticed in by the friendly guy outside who offered us a free meze with our meal (and free ice-cream but we weren't bothered about that). When we came to pay our bill they had charged us for it. We thought it was just...a simple mistake but when we pointed this out to the waiter he said 'you ate it so you should pay for it'. He then caused a scene in front of all the other customers and called us gypsies! He completely humiliated us and ruined what was actually a really well cooked steak and lamb shank. I won't be returning and I won't be recommending it to anyone.More
