Our favourite places to eat. Enjoy awesome food and stunning decor.
Akkaya Garden Restaurant
Serene dining
Not only one of the best restaurants in Dalaman, Akkaya Garden is also one of the best restaurants in Turkey. Serving fantastically prepared local food, its surroundings will leave you in awe – located in a valley dotted with pine trees, waterfalls and ponds, it is a wonderful place to spot wildlife and you can even reserve a table with a birds’ nest. Make a day of it and take a dip in the pool and lounge in the gardens before dining on delicious dishes like chicken shish or a mixed grill.

Family fun with the turtles
Situated near the airport, Nil Restaurant is an easily accessible family-family restaurant with a unique twist.

Traditional Turkish
Appealing to both tourists and locals, Palmiye’s beautiful garden setting just outside the centre is perfect for couples and families.

Cinar Restaurant
For the freshest fish
Cinar is located in Beyobasi, half an hour from Dalaman, but there’s a handy shuttle service. The fresh-water streams in the grounds are host to trout, which are caught and served to your plate in minutes – you can’t get fresher fish than that! And it means the scenery is stunning too. Relax beside waterfalls and swim in the cool lake while being waited on by friendly staff, or sit back in a romantic little hut. Popular local dishes served here include shrimp casserole and chicken shish.
