Firstly what an impressive view! Stunning sunset. Met with 6 friends. We had mixed sushi and some noodle dishes. Very tasty. Bread baked in the hotel with olives was on each table. Attentive staff. Friendly. Ambience was great. At the end we were offered some very nice chocolate with fruit That the hotel kitchen had made. Coffee too. We sat down afterwards and listened to some great music and had a few drinks. Been visiting Bidrum for 20 years. One of the best restaurants in Bodrum.

Kefi beach club/ bar and restaurant is the best in Ortakent Yahsi. Their cocktails are very well done. Most of the evenings, they offer great live music whether is jazz, Greek or Turkish music. Their restaurant, specially by the beach offers the best view of the bay and Kos island. The service is great. They don’t rush you to move away during your dinner like you might see on some European/American restaurants. Their appetizers are always fresh. Like the fava, octopus salad, stuffed zucchini flowers, marinated shrimps, haydari, calamari, grilled mushrooms, pastirmali borek,fried barbunya (small red mullets ), arugula salad. Enjoy all these with Turkish raki. You will have an unforgettable night!

Ate here on our first night on holiday, sat at a table on the beach and had an excellent meal - six nights in it is still the best meal we had. Fresh seafood on display so you can see how fresh it is, plus a massive choice of meats, starters and mains. Sole and Prawn Skewers were excellent - superb, fresh fish, really well cooked. Service is very slick and polished. You may a bit more here due to the location but also due to the excellent food, thoroughly recommend a visit.

Reviewed By RK22

On our last night in Bodrum, we decided to stay closer to our hotel. Based on the good reviews, we chose Sofi’s. It didn’t disappoint. We came after sunset, so we didn’t get to experience the beautiful views. However, the area was lively and we still sat along the waterside. I didn’t feel that we had missed out on anything, in other words. We were presented with a plate of traditional mezzes to choose from, which is a tradition I love! Seeing what you are getting, as well as an explanation of the dish, is always a plus. We chose two, one a spinach-based dip and a yogurt-based one, as well as octopus. They were all wonderful. My husband ordered a bottle of wine. However, they had ran out of his choice so the waiter brought two other options. He decided on one and said it was the best bottle he’d had while in Turkey! Cheers for the recommendation. I had eaten seafood for 2 straight weeks and decided on a meat dish. I had the traditional Shepherd’s dish, SAÇ KAVURMA, I believe it’s called (don’t quote me-still working on my Turkish). It was delicious and I’m just disappointed I couldn’t finish it all. The presentation was beautiful as well, as you can see from the photo. The owner or manager, Alex, came over to ensure everything was satisfying. I can understand why he gets so many compliments because he is very polite, funny and seems to truly care about his guests. We were too full for dessert although I won’t hesitate to return on our next trip. Then I’ll leave room for dessert. As an aside, the restaurant is in a small hotel that looks quite cute. I can’t speak to what it’s like to stay there, but it’s a fantastic location and I’d venture a guess that it would be a nice place to stay outside of a major resort. I couldn’t help taking some photos of the statues around the hotel area. Thank you to everyone at Sofi’s. We will be back!We appreciate your lovely review, please come again and join us for a great sunset at Sofi’s.We also would love to host you at Taskule Boutique Hotel on your next stay.
