Minos is a traditional Turkish “BALIK ve RAKI” restaurant, located at the start of the fish restaurant street along Yalikavak’s picturesque seafront. Famous for its wide selection of Raki, fresh seafood, friendly service and beautiful sunsets, Minos is a good choice for a romantic dinner, family celebration or a business meeting. Whether indoors in the modern yet traditionally Turkish seaside ambience with panoramic windows or outdoors amongst the olive trees on the spacious terrace, you are guaranteed to spend a lovely and memorable evening all year around. According to historians, “Minos” is a title given to the kings of the ancient Minoan Civilization. However, one of the great kings stood out in particular; therefore, Minos appears as one single, powerful figure. Many legends were woven around king Minos and he has become an important part of classical Greek mythology, just as the restaurant holds an important position in Yalikavak’s restaurant scene.

Minos offers the freshest and most original seafood dishes in the area. Some of which include a unique salmon pasturma, courgette with seafood stuffing, chef’s special “fish manti” (traditional Turkish dumplings) and other delicious creations worth a try.

At Minos everyone will find a suitable drink, be it a bottle of local or regional raki, wine or beer. The extensive wine selection offers a wide variety of regional and international wines ready to be paired with Turkish mezzes and seafood dishes. Raki drinkers enjoy a broad assortment of main raki brands as well as special editions.


Yalikavak bay lies in the northwestern part of the peninsula. Several decades ago, it was a simple, small fishing village only 19 km from the center of Bodrum.

Today Yalikavak is one of the fastest growing areas of Bodrum peninsula. Not only does it attract a large number of local residents who enjoy developed infrastructure and higher standard of living but also invesCtors who see the potential of growth of this area.

Undoubtedly, main reason for this development is the presence of the second largest marina in Europe. Palmarina Yalikavak is distinctively designed for mega yachts up to 150 meters in size. Besides state of the art facilities for the yachts and yacht owners, you will also find numerous luxury facilities such as spa & fitness, exclusive boutiques and designer stores, a kids fun water park, a deluxe supermarket and a variety of fine-dine restaurants and classy cafes serving Turkish, European and Asian cuisine. Some of the world-famous restaurant brands are residing here for example Cipriani, Nobu and the Billionaires Club.
