This is one of my favourite places in Datca. It's a beautifully renovated old stone olive mill with an iddylic garden, great food and welcoming owners. Check their opening times before you visit as they are usually not open all season.

Am I correct in reading on their website that they are not open this summer ? I was hoping to go there next week when in Datca.

Yakamengen uses their own products. Their homemade limonade is very good. The food was pure, healthy and tasty. It was the best restaurant we've been, during our holidays in Datca.

After driving about 1/2 hour through the magnificent mountains and fields outside of busy Datca, we were in a lovely garden of this very special restaurant. Though the day was very hot, the garden was comfortable and relaxing. Everything we ate was delicius and unusual- a slight variation on the standard small plates-a zucchini dip with almonds, hummus balls with... More

Loved the mezes and the olive ail tastes so good. One of the best I ever tasted in Mediterranean. I strongly recommend their kadınbudu köfte!! Service was so nice, the girl who served us was warm and helping with a smiling face. The athmosphere was peacefull and quite and that was the part that I mostly enjoy.

We sought this restaurant out because of the excellent reviews and it still managed to pleasantly surprise us. As others have suggested it is a bit out of Datca and makes an excellent lunch stop on the way to Knidos or Palamutbuku. We loved the informal layout and the food was great. The produce was local including home grown olives... More

Datça is already a nice location for travel and yakamengen brings an extra dimension. Food is very good and the hospitality is exceptional. We enjoyed a two hours dinner in the garden with fine food. Absolutely recommended.

Simple, smily, in the middle of the road, unavoidable. Already eating in Turkey is great this restaurant is just great! The food is well balanced, rich flavors and delicious! All in a very simple backyard with some tables and a couple of hammocks. If you are close to Datça peninsula or thinking about it, don't miss it!

Yakamengen is in Yaka Village just between Palamutbükü beach and Knidos so it would be good to arrange a lunch or dinner visit while you plan one of your days in Datca for the route to Palamutbükü beach or visit to antiqe city Knidos. I really applaud the idea and initiative of the owner to open this place. Very local... More

Yakamengen Kafe had the most delicious food that I ate in Datça. The lamb, mixed plate of mezedes, pudding with almond and orange were all excellent. It has a relaxing garden as well. The prices are similar to the other restaurants in Datça. Highly recommended!

Description
Our restaurant is closed for 2015 summer season...

The old olive oil mill in the village of Yaka came to life in the hands of artisans. The stone building which was more than a century old was restored and became a Cafe - Restaurant. We invite you to enjoy our Mediterranean cuisine either inside the cool stone building or in the shades of olive trees in our garden. The restaurant is open in summer.
