This restaurant is fine but has you by the short and curlies. If you've sailed into the fabulous bay, it is the only option for dinner. I have visited several times and each time the food is fine but we've paid through the nose. It's always been the most expensive meal of the holiday, not justified by the quality of... More

It is a pretty rare occasion that you spend the night anchored in a 2000 year old harbour in front of the ancient theatre, enjoy highest air and (sea)water quality and find something decent to eat. Yes, the prices are on the high side, but it is the only restaurant within 40 km on land and within 3 hours of... More

This stop is vital in crossings to / from bodrum. So location and ruins are excellent. However the food in the only restaurant in Knidos needs improvement. Many complaints about freshness and quality. We did not enjoy our lamb. My wife left it on plate. My fish was average. The bay has very good anchoring.

Quaint experience only - the swimming was great but the food was horrid. I think they tried but need to get some experience in running a food restaurant.

We stayed here for a night by yacht, eating supper and morning breakfast. For me it seemed quite ok. Of course comparing to turkish islands' tavernas... nice service and hospitality....

This was the worst restaurant we experienced in Turkey. It is a complete rip off. No menu so no prices. Three beers ordered two poured while we were invited up to see food displayed. The third unpoured bottle was removed by staff and charged for. London prices very little food delivered to our table of six. What a shame as... More

The innkeeper/host of this restaurant doesn't care at all about his guests. He sits lazy in a chair, you have to choose something from a buffet (so he doesn't need to go to the guests at the tables to get the orders), he doesn't say "hello", not "thank you for coming here", not "goodbye". In fact, he's the most unfriendly... More

This 'restaurant/cafe' is situated next to the ancient city ruins at Knidos, at the far end of the beautiful Datça Peninsula. The ruins itself are great, and the 8TL entrance fee was good value in my opinion. Then there is the restaurant... it has a superb position, right on the beach, offering yacht mooring etc in addition to the restaurant.... More
