Food overall, despite a few tasty items, was disappointing. We left one dish uneaten.

Marmaris has been a go-to place for my family for the last 2- 3 years when we have a casual but a special get-together. Food and service have always been consistently good. We were not disappointed this weekend either. They brought a birthday baklava with a candle to my dad without my reminding them!

The only one terrible experience was when they could not deal with a family that had a child who screamed and screamed and screamed for an hour none stop!! 😱 The family was too clueless and inconsiderate about other people in the restaurant to take the child out of the place. It was awful. Suggest the restaurant have a policy dealing with situations like this since it might affect guests from returning. We nearly did not..,

Outside looks like a corner deli. But inside has nice decor.

Prices are cheap but food was mediocre.

No service. They don’t provide water for table and they don’t check on you at all. If you need something you’ll have to get up and ask someone.


Also if you sit near kitchen you will hear a loud DING every few minutes orders are ready.

Much better option is Greek Taverna or Molos

Service needs improvement, the staff is nice but they don’t seem to work as a team, I was greeted by 3 different waiters and not one gave me a menu, I had to ask for a it not once but twice. It wasn’t busy there were only 4 tables including me. Nobody cleared away dirty plates and nobody asked if we needed anything

We went for Mother's Day brunch although no one in our party of 8 had a breakfast dish. It is BYOB. the food was delicious and we would definitely come back! Try the grilled lamb chops, the beef shish and the pizza appetizer. Real standouts.

We ad not been to Marmaris for a while and was quite pleasantly surprised. We always like the decor and the service was always excellent. The menu has expanded and that has made Marmaris much better The food, whatever you choose is always very fresh. We started with shepherd's salad and bean salad. The we added the liver appetizer which is a favorite of ours. Then I had the bronzini which was EXCELLENT this time with vegetables instead of my favorite bulgar. My friends and a lamb dish which the waitress recommended and they loved. And one had the manti, which is always excellent here.
What I also like is that they have expanded the pizza and pasta menu so we can eat here with friends who are not as cray about Turkish food as we are.

Very nice dinner. Party of 5 and food was enjoyed by all..Waitress was very attentive. It was a very cold night and as they have a wall of windows, it was a little chilly at first but after a bit it seemed to have warmed up. Absolutely would return.

We always enjoy coming here, even though it's not close by. We had a great meal--love the lamb sac tava and manti. My husband and our friend loved their lamb chops. Too bad the parking lot isn't bigger--but that would never stop us from coming!

Marmaris has become my family's go-to place for special dinners when we want a casual place with good food, service and happy ambiance. Service is friendly and attentive; food is on point and the ambiance is very pleasant and inviting.

We were there this Sunday at 6:30pm for Father's Day and my husband's birthday. We had such a lovely time! BYOB with no cork fee is a huge plus.

We love Turkish food and embrace diversity in our choice of cuisine, but if you are not adventurous, they do offer other very good menu options like...thin pizza and fried calamari etc. I love their bulgur! Bronzini is always grilled perfectly. My mom who is very picky, loved their lamb kebob so much that she actually took the few pieces of leftovers home with her!

Food is consistently good and prices are very reasonable. Service was a bit lacking this time, but in the past has been good. One drawback is that there seem to always be either crying babies or children running around. If you're in the mood for good lamb and don't want to spend a fortune, this is your place.

Had dinner in Efgewater at Marmaris. Very relaxed atmosphere with excellent service. Food ok- better appetizers than mains. Keep it simple- eggplant, chicken dishes- whole Branzino very bony; mixed grill ok; desserts: skip the soupy, watery rice pudding. In all, just ok- but a lovely waitress who openly discussed current problems in Turkey.

Good food, good atmosphere, good prices, and, best of all, PARKING! Went here for date night because we always want to try something different. Was very slow and then they got slammed and service suffered (my BF went through his and my water, but couldn't get ahold of a waiter for a water refill, which only happened once, at the end of the meal). They apologized when we went to pay. Overall, a good experience, though! Food was tasty and basic (meat, vegetables, grains), and I don't mean that in a bad way, more like picky eaters will rejoice. Will go back.

We came for lunch and the pace was virtually empty. There were two people to wait on us and service was good. Since it was so quiet we had an especially nice time. The food and coffee came quickly. The chopped salad portion was so large I couldn't finish it. And as a man, I typically finish everything put in front of me. The vegetarian sandwich was filling and also good. The entire restaurant was clean, quiet and pleasant. I can't say if it gets crowded at night, but I assume it does. This is not a daytime business zone, assumingly explaining why it was not crowded for lunch.
