We had a lovely meal here on our first night in Dalyan. In an excellent location on the river bank overlooked by the tombs - we saw turtles swimming by and lots of fist. The food was excellent - fresh and tasty - and service was good. Really couldn't fault it and would eat there again.

A delightful range of food on the menu in a glorious setting where you look over to the tombs. If you do eat on the decking boats can moor up and this can block your views. The front of the restaurant is nothing like the back where it opens out onto the river. A memorable meal that sums up the... More

We walked past this restaurant the night before we went in and the lovely man asked us to try his restaurant the following day. I said yes like you often do and he seemed so grateful and courteous that I decided we'd keep to our promise. We were not disappointed as the atmosphere, food and service were all brilliant. We...

Talk to Jacob at the restaurant entrance. He will describe all of the dishes and there really is something for everyone - meat, fish, vegetarian and then he will show you to your table. You can sit by the riverside on a wooden pier for your meal. Grey mullet swim around in abundance and you will be very unlucky not... More

Very nice restaurant right on the River. Great food. Aktar was a good guy who made us laugh when walking past which is why we went back a couple of days later. Our experience was very good and enhanced by one of the elusive turtles swimming past us in the river most of the evening. Will go back next time... More

Always like to try restaurants on the river in Dalyan and again, this one did not disappoint. Food looked very fresh and fish especially impressed. Staff attentive without overpowering.

We visited this restaurant during our stay. Wow what a setting you were literally right by the river side so much so you had to be careful in case you missed your footing. I imagine during the day it is better to see the river and turtles at night though you can see the tombs lit up and all the... More

Despite I can not say which restaurant was the best in my lifetime, I can clearly say that Aktas restaurant is simply the worst by far .. Not only the tastes but also customer treatment have been coupling other to have this title .. They also showed such a bill that price of items are multiplied by power coefficients between... More

Four of us ate here last night. We all enjoyed our starters, and main courses. My lamb shank fell off the bone, it was so well cooked, beautiful. The setting is even better than the casa nova which we went to a few nights ago. We put a few bits of bread into the water and watched the fish engulf... More

We would definitely go back if there were not so many restaurants to choose from. Great location with romantic views of the tombs across the river. Well established restaurant, friendly and welcoming staff. We had Turkish kebabs - very good flavours. Not forgetting the ubiquitous rice and chips. You will get the balloon bread at many of the restaurants but... More
