Fevzinin Yeri in Datca turkey

Has anyone been to this place?
It is probably my favorite fish restaurant in all of Turkey. fevzi is the grill master and his wife does the meze. she gathers all sorts of local greens together for some great cold starters. if i remember correctly we had an order sauteed daisy stems in olive oil, followed by another order of the same. we never saw much less heard of most of this stuff in Istanbul.
i am wondering if anyone else stumbled upon it and was as pleasantly surprised as I was.

  1. I've been meaning to try that place every since my dad (who vacations in the area every year and is quite picky about his fish and greens) raved me about it. Hopefully this summer. The food is different from most in Istanbul, because I believe they mostly serve Cretan dishes. The meals are light in carbs, modest in proteins (mostly seafood) and very heavy on greens. They cook every imaginable wild plant that could be gathered, as long as they are not poisonous.

    Daddyo also said they they make a decent homemade wine, but wine is not a topic where he is picky; so don't trust him.

      father knows best.
      i dont recall a homemade wine there though it wouldnt surprise me. if/when i return i will have to ask. i wasnt aware of the cretan influence. Fevzi and his wife are from Izmir but this entire Aegean region received so many refugees from Crete with the population exchange, that the cretan kitchen is quite common even in Istanbul.
