IKON Happy Moons - Yalikavak

IKON Happy Moon's - Two visits


IKON is part of the Happy Moons group located in Yalikavak on the Bodrum Peninsula in Turkey. IKON is a stylish and relaxing establishment to sit back and enjoy a few drinks and food while checking out the stunning superyachts in the marina and national park.

It feels like we're constantly writing about excellent service, but the reality is service in Turkey is simply outstanding; when you leave the restaurant hugging the staff, you know you've had a great lunch that might have turned into dinner.


We opted for the delicious and mouthwatering burger and a tender curry chicken, both perfect. We enjoyed Kofta and steak kebab on our next visit and treated ourselves to desserts.


The team behind the bar crafted some very tasty cocktails. We loved the great big balls of ice flavoured with garnish, all the classics, and several new cocktails with a twist. The wine list was a little limited, and pricing was above average for the quality of wines on offer.

The decor and design, think billowing white sheer curtains, views of yachts and the national park, and you know you're in the right location for a slow lunch. The insider's tip is to get a table right at the end of the main restaurant, it has the best views, and you can sit side by side and hidden away from the direct sunlight.


Very reasonable pricing considering the location in Yalikavak and the quality of the food and cocktails, it will definitely be busy during the summer season.
