I came to this place 2 nights ago after a recommendation. The best fish I have had on my life. The service is amazing and the staff treat you like family. It is easily a 12 out of 10! You have too come when in...bodrum.More

My family and I are big fans of seafood, and came here for dinner last week with some local friends. We were incredibly satisfied and blown away by the food, appetisers, interior, service: all of it. Thankfully we came here with friends that were here...before and were able to explain hoe the restaurant works: you get taken to what looks like a bar of platters with appetisers, and tell your waiter which ones you'd like to order. Then you get taken to a room by the entrance where the fresh fish and catch of the day is, and you choose from what's available, and at what weight. The food was quite quick in being served, all of the staff were wearing face masks and there were several points of hand sanitiser dispensers. Felt very comfortable being here for the current situation.More

Good in terms of taste but fish products are unnecessarily expensive and when we ask to waiter why his response was sea food is expensive 1 portion of shrimp is 70 TL 1 kg red mullet is 270 TL. Most importantly lack of menu shows...this is a poor restaurant. This leads to surprise bills.More

I wish I never went to this restaurant and witnessed the rudeness of the female waitress and her reaction! This is a tourist trap restaurant so be careful as there are many better options next to this restaurant. The female waitress charged us for extras...on the bill but thankfully the restaurant manager agreed to remove it after he came to our table and discussed with him. The same waitress wasn’t happy that it was removed from the bill and she found the salt cap was removed and tried to charge us again, but thankfully again the other waiter found the salt cap and we went out from the restaurant. The prices are very high for the seafood and the starters are expensive and won’t recommend it to anyone, My family liked the expensive fish though but the attitude of the waitress ruined our day!More

Recommendations that we paid for... we didn’t want the dish but they decided we did. It was nice but that’s beside the point. Non stop water & dried bread rolls were non stop which was nice. Wine was quite expensive & there were no ciders...(haven’t found much in the way of ciders in bodrum at all to be honest) Calamari was a bit rubbery & servings small. Spiced fish was amazing & so was the garlic shrimp. Cost was slightly overwhelming however considering you can go somewhere much cheaper w similar quality & large servings. Service was good however, despite the fact we left after 3 dishes as our cash ran dry...More
