It is unusual for me to find fault with the welcome, the service, or the value for money of a restaurant on the Datça peninsula, so I am putting my average dining experience here down to bad luck.

We visited this place twice during our stay in Datça and on both occasions we had good time. Both times we reserved a table during the day and were able to secure one that overlooked the pretty harbour. (This was in October so I don't suppose it is possible in high season).
By the entrance they had a chilled cabinet of mezze from which you could choose your hot or cold starter. As I adore mezze, we often choose several so that whilst my husband was having a grilled meat dish, I would continue with the mezze. However on the second night, we had one side of a red mullet which was grilled perfectly with a side salad. Prices are reasonable considering the location and the quality of the food.
On both evenings, there was a large table of a Turkish family celebrating a significant birthday of an elder which was good to see such an happy event taking place at the restaurant. The staff and owner were attentive and friendly and answered any questions on the food. On our return visit to Datça, we will definitely be calling in.
