Dalyan is a favourite place to us. We have been there well over 20 times in the last 11 years! It was only this September that we found Mai's. Having been recommended by others staying at the same hotel we decided to 'give it a try'. What a very pleasant surprise! The food was delicious, mine hosts well up to... More

A friend took us here I'd passed it many times, we had a delicious meal the owners were lovely, great hosts and we had great service too. Lingered longer than expected due to the relaxed atmosphere will definitely go again next year.

We first visited in 2014 and enjoyed it so returned when back in Dalyan. Still the same relaxed owner, low key, calm atmosphere just off the main street. There is a good menu and so far everything chosen has been as expected, flavoursome and good sized portions (this does not mean huge). No rush, not a fast food cafe, allow... More

I ate at this restaurant a couple of weeks ago and so glad I did. I was on holiday alone and feel uncomfortable in a lot of the restaurants. I loved this place. I had sea bass which was lovely and was helped to fillet it as I was struggling!! The complimentary ice cream was delicious. Would highly recommend.

Despite many visits to Dalyan we had never stopped off to eat here. It's a smallish place, probably no more than 24 covers, run by a husband and wife team - he's front of house and waiter and she is the grill chef. It's not a proposing place as it's just round the corner from the main drag towards the... More

Found this restaurant on our last night in Dalyan and wished we had found it before! Best meal of the week...but not just due to the food. It was relaxed, unhurried, friendly and genuine. Very reasonably priced too. Thank you!

Visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Dalyan, having just discovered it last year. The steaks are delicious, all fillet steaks with a choice of sauces etc. I recommend the Gorgonzola. The owner is lovely and very welcoming. Couldn't fault the service or the food. We will be back any time I want a steak.
