We present you a list of top seven you can easily reach when sailing on your charter yacht in Marmaris area. They are, in alphabetical order so no one gets offended:

Dede
Not only is the food in this restaurant exceptional, so is its history. The business was started in 1973 by Ali Denizelli, who died in 1992 at 104 years of age. The restaurant is now run by his grandchildren, who named the restaurant Dede (meaning grandfather) in his honor. It is located in the harbor so you can dine with amazing views of the sea. The menu includes fish and seafood, as well as traditional Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine.

Dost
The Dost Restaurant opened in 1984 at the Uzunyali beach front and has since then built its reputation as one of the best restaurants in Marmaris. It was closed in 2007 due to the renovation of the promenade, but has reopened in 2013 in a location not so far away from the original one. Dost now serves international food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Drunken Crab
This restaurant of a very memorable name has a tradition reaching back to 1986 in one of Marmaris’ oldest streets – the Bar Street near the waterfront. It is a family-run restaurant serving traditional Turkish food (meze), as well as fresh fish and seafood.

Mr. Ali
