restaurants

It's quickly become the epicenter of Bodrum, Palmarina with its master planned yacht harbor and showy collection of restaurants and shopping that now includes an outpost of Zuma. Located along the manmade island's 'old city' and series of elaborate pools once home to Nobu, the indoor/outdoor eatery is best experienced late-nights along the terrace with its marble detailing and posh collection of visitors. A simple décor mixes a Japanese aesthetic with native olive trees and evening lounge anthems that bring a added dose of elegance to summertime Bodrum.

The Food

A familiar sushi fixture for traveling jetset, Zuma offers a Bodrum installment that follows the style and cuisine of other resort pop-ups like Beirut, Istanbul and Dubai. Familiar dishes like sizzling shishito, tuna tacos and yellowtail with jalapeno are followed by heartier creations like Miso Cod, lobster tempura rolls and Wagyu specialties that taste almost identical at each installment of Zuma.

Last Word

London's most beloved sushi chef sets-up Japanese terrace eatery at esteemed Palmarina in Bodrum.
