Grilled octopus legs were fresh and and soft. Also we tried fried octopus legs in pepper and garlic. It was tasteful too. Also I recommend you to order stonecrop, which is an underwater plant prepared as pickles. "Caia Coruu" is the turkish pronounciation of it.

The restaurant is located on an attractive part of the river with good views over it. It was a 10 minute walk from our hotel (Yucelen) and we enjoyed it so much we went for lunch the following day too. We only eat a small lunch and the staff were quite happy to serve us simply fried calamari and their... More

Like most of restaurants in Akyaka, we have been here previously. Lovely position on the river. Staff unfriendly and quite rude. Fish tasty but you literally get a fish on a plate. We had to ask for plate for bones etc. Some of the items on the menu are not available, but it is coming to end of season. One... More

We went here pretty late in the evening and they seemed in a rush to get us fed and out the door. Despite that the food was good and the setting by the river was lovely.

I thought the setting on the river would ensure a lovely evening even though the previous year had seen poor service but good food - the 1 star is for the setting -service was worse than our previous visit-it was as anything we asked for was too much trouble. Even the food which was good last time was poor -the... More

Attractive restaurant in a beautiful setting beside the river. We were given a table for 2 at the top in a poirly lit area away from everything. We should have known then that things could only get worse. Waiter came to put on fresh top tablecloths, very uncommunicative, cloths were unironed and still very damp, another clue. Eventually our order... More

Every year I am persuaded to try Vira Vira again, partly because it is convenient, and partly because I am always told it must have improved. Well it hasn't. The service is still poor, and the food very average. Which is a shame, because it is a beautiful location, maybe one year a new owner will be able to make... More

this restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel for great fish dishes. We discovered a lovely restaurant with great views on the river with plenty of geese swimming on it and enjoying being fed with bread! The stuff was extremely friendly and made us feel at home. The salad and the fish/calamari was excellent and I am sure we... More

Ate here a couple of times with the same outcome,food very good but after initial orders were taken,service was disappointing. It's a lovely setting on the river and as you would expect,the fish dishes are very good.

Totally understaffed, we ordered our food with a waitress who did not write it down. We waited for some minutes with nothing happening and asked a waiter if the order had been taken, he assured us that it had but after a further 10 mins he came with a pad to take our order. We left
