“One of the best seafood in Bodrum. Their addresses might change please google or call before going there. Reservation is a must! They collect their own sand mussels and all from the Aegean sea! It is a little pricey but I'm sure it will be an excellent experience for our guests. Wine menu is great too!”

Restaurant
“A small restaurant that has become favoured amongst the Istanbulu, Bagarasi has special Turkish delicasies that change from day to day. When you get there, choose the Mezzes that you would like, and then continue with your main course which can be either fish or meat. Tip: You can bring your own fish and they will cook it for you as per your instructions! Tip: If you have a sweet tooth (like me!) get the chocolate soufflee, it is the best part of the meal! ”
