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.

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.
