Reviewed 13 September 2016

A recommendation to my wife and I. We contacted Eric via email and were collected at 6.45 for the sunset. Situated way up the side of the Babadag mountain in a beautiful secluded spot. Run by Eric Philip and Chef Frank. This is a wonderful quiet retreat feeling like you've been asked to dine in their home. The menu is purposely small which we like and is changed regularly with starter specials. Eric as Host is most informative and a pleasure to talk to, the food was delicious and Frank came out to see us at our table.
A wonderful experience if you like your fine food and wine. Thanks to Philip for taking us back to out hotel.

Room Tip: We only ate in the restaurant, but Eric is fantastic

Never had such a nice stay. The three men of the house will do anything for you to make your stay comfortable: checking if you have enough to drink or eat, booking massages, boat tours or paragliding, driving you to the city center and picking up you, advising on what trips to take and at what restaurants to eat. Their cook, Frank, will do anything to make you a delicious meal, Philippe (spelling?) makes sure the villa is in perfect form and Eric just manages everything you need.
Because this villa is a bit higher up the mountain it's not as warm as in the city. You'll get your peace and quiet there. But if you want to, just go to Fethiye and join the party there. Can't be any better :)

Room Tip: Any room will be perfect, no worries

Visited this serene and personal hotel to experience the wonderful cuisine and enjoy the gorgeous sunset. Excellent personal service and an idyllic location. Highly recommended.
Bonus was meeting a young wild boar who had also tried to savour the delights of this fabulous place.

We visited for the first but not last time on Friday on a very high recommendation from family. We were collected from our villa by courtesy car and transported into the mountains, arriving at the spectacular and incredibly tasteful restaurant and hotel that is Palazzo. From arriving and taking in the stunning calming views to wandering through the stylish but comfortable hotel to eating a delicious 3 course meal that not only tasted wonderful but was beautifully presented too, the evening was a delight.
What made the evening even more special, was the personal touch from Phil, Eric and Frank (and the lovely Mehmet ) also. Considering this was our first visit, you wouldn't have known from the lovely welcome we received and attention throughout the evening including a fascinating tour of this beautiful hotel. Learning that parts of the hotel are often used as a yoga retreat was not surprising considering the true sense of calm that pervades throughout. A wonderful evening with charming hosts, not to be missed if you are in the area.

Room Tip: Book ahead for restaurant

We have just returned from another wonderful holiday in Ovacik that included several visits to this wonderful restaurant. Eric, Phil and Frank (and Mehmet) always do everything they can to make every visit memorable - from the cocktails to the fantastic food. They aways make time for all the guests and nothing is too much trouble. We are returning next year and cannot wait to sample the great hospitality again.
