Eating at/near Dalaman Airport

Post by iainm » Wed Sep 24, 2008 12:20 am

We found a good restaurant on the D400 at Ortaca close to Dalaman Airport (22 September 2008). Having heard horror stories of prices at the airport, we had decided to eat just before handing back the hire car - a good choice as it turned out. The Toprakana Restaurant is located on the south side of the D400, between Ortaca and the bridge over the river. The following link gives a view and map location: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/7376815. Lunch for two consisting of three meze starters (too much!), main course and drinks came to just over YTL50. Service was friendly and efficient. This contrasted starkly with the later experience at the airport, where two double espresso coffees came to YTL17!

You can eat inside or in the garden; despite the noise from the road, the surroundings and atmosphere are relaxing.

I have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone who wants to avoid the prices and noise of the airport terminal.
