“food and service second to none”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2011

There are many a good restaurants in Yalikavak, however for me DEDE has to be the best for Turkish cusine, the owner Oskan is very professional in all he does , managing his staff to the highest respectable standards, they are not pushy in anyway which is my pet hate. the head chef kyan will cook your meal they way you want it cooked sit on the beach front you can relax on their sunbeds or dine in the evening during a fanastic sunset and after, you can party until the early hours drinking, dancing and socialising with all nationalities , its a must when you vist YALIKAVAK.

For any reason you are not satisfied with food or service then you must inform Ozkan, who would immediatly correct it . tip if you don't tell the restrauntuer whats wrong then they can never improve things, so don't be shy or its your loss.

“Best spot in Yalikavak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

Dede Bar and Restaurant really will go to the ends of the earth to make sure you enjoy your time there. Oskan is a fantastic host and a gentleman and probably spent more on my nephew than we spent some nights, between ice cream, lollies and toys...just a lovely man !
The setting is idyllic, right on the beach and the sofas are situated perfectly to people watch and chill as the world rolls by...very very slowly....nothing moves fast in Yalikavak and you won't either after a day in this place. I've never been anywhere where I chill so quickly and forget my job and life back home..sheer bliss.
The staff are the best, attentive but not overbearing and the chef, Kyian is an accomplished cook who will tweak his dishes to your taste...his ottoman casserole is spectacular, especially when it's made extra spicy.
Drinks are really strong and served quickly and loads of friends to be made here as people end up sitting together on the sofas.
Had a wonderful holiday ...thank you Oskan...see you next year !

“Love it here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2011

I have been to Yali a few times with my friends now and we always go Dede's, the staff are lovely and always helpful, in the day you have use of the beach and free sunbeds as well which is lovely, the food is wonderful and at night its just as nice once all the pretty lights go on and some music as well. If you are looking for a good place to eat with a great atmosphere and great staff visit Dede's without a doubt!

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2011

Lovely food and super location on the beach. Mains came with rice, chips, salad so lots of choices! Staff are very friendly and remembered us whenever we walked by later in the week. Ate here our first night and tho other restaurants were perhaps as nice, did not find anywhere better.

“Consistently good food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2011

Dedes is the restaurant that we always end up spending the most time at during our time in Yalikavak. The food and the service is always good whether you are having a drink on the beach or a full meal in the restaurant. The shrimp casserole is the best in the village!
