  • The Scene:

    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 amongst one of the prettiest dinner settings in town.

  • The Food:

    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.
