By far one of the most beautiful eateries on the Bodrum peninsula, Kocadon is situated within a courtyard of historic stone houses in the central village where a canopy of palm trees and banana plants shade an elegant outdoor dining room. A floor of hearty cobblestones stretches out over the outdoor space arranged in well-spaced tabletops tucked with wooden garden chairs. With the occasional tippy-toe view of the Aegean, evenings feature flickering candlelight and soft lounge anthems among one of the prettiest dinner settings in town.
Originally the home of the Kocadon family in the 19th century, today this elegant Bodrum eatery offers a high culinary standard overseen by Dutch managements. The menu features delicate artichoke salads with olive oil drizzle and sautéed octopus with tomato gratin. Main course includes chicken with shrimp with a light cream sauce, grilled fish with mushrooms and traditional lamb stew with chunks of eggplant and peppers.
Elegant courtyard eatery walking distance to the Bodrum marina is known for celebrity diners and romantic culinary experiences.
