We return here every time we visit Fethiye. In over 40 visits over the past years we have never had anything other than a good meal from Reception and his sons. The number of loyal customers like us attracted back to his restaurant speak for themselves..

Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. Noisy, busy and hectic. Great food. The staff assisted with purchasing of fish and made recommendations, which was then perfectly cooked. Served with prawns, calamari and mezes, washed down with Efes and raki. No Recep this year, seems his sons are running the place at present and doing a great job.

Having been to the fish market many times over the years, we prefer to stick with one place but have moved occasionally over the years. However, we had a couple of disappointing experiences at our then preferred venue last year so moved this time (although once seated at Recep's it looked as though there had been a mass clearout of...

If you put aside the slow service, the fish was cooked in a way to be too oily. although we asked it to be grilled. It was also so sürprizing to See the traditional "fava" to be ruined with oil and pepper. Honestly i dont think that i will go there again....

We are here three times during our stay in Fethiye. Each meal was cooked beautifully ... It was fun to choose fish from the centre market & have the restaurant cook it for us. We made sure to choose a local fish and it didn't disappoint. One other occasions we ordered from the menu - yum. The calamari was delicious.... More

- Once you finish ordering, they don't care much about you. - No recommendation has been given regarding cooking style, I believe it exists many options for cooking a single fish, but besides "grilled" and "fried", our waiter didn't give any advice to get a more tasty dish. - It took ages to get our last fish, and then the...

We've used this restaurant many times over the last 7 years mainly for lunch. My advise would be not to get sucked into buying from the central fish counter, just sit at Recep's and have a chat with the staff to see what's good that day. We normally order a few starters that come with some meze and bread and... More

Have been many times to fish market , but receps calamari and prawns in chilli is head and shoulders above the other places IMO . Whist other waiters/ greeters try to hassle you into their restaurants amongst the hustle and bustle of the fish market the staff of receps seem laid back in comparison and each and every time have...

Ever since restaurants first sprung up around the fish market many years ago, we have always eaten at Recep's Place, and have never been disappointed. Recep's son now runs the restaurant with the same friendliness and care that his father has always shown us. On those rare occasions that we have eaten elsewhere in the fish market, they have always... More
