Ada Restaurant – Şovalye Island

Nestled away on the very end of Şovalye Island is Ada Restaurant. Many of you may already be familiar with Ada Restaurant and Beach Club; however, did you know that in the evenings the restaurant takes on a very different ambience? It becomes a place for romantic sunset meals or, if you prefer to eat later during the hot summer months, dining under the stars.

The restaurant is in its fourth season and is run by the General Manager, Mahir Yılmaz, along with his chef and dedicated team of kitchen staff and waiters.

On arrival you can sit and relax in the garden area before being shown to your table on the roof terrace. Enjoy the stunning views all around you. A gentle breeze, the lapping of the sea and the music of the cicadas make it the perfect place.

A beautiful way to end a magical evening

Take the lighted walkway back to the boat and journey back to Şat Jetty;  see the twinkling lights of Çalış reflected on the still water and the moon, stars and listen to the sounds of the evening…
