Very good meze and fresh fish. Comfortable place even if a little bit noisy. A mandatory stopover when I'm in Istanbul.

food was amazing. wine list is limited but this is a raki place anyway. Their recommendations were good but waiters are always around tables and they listen. a little bit privacy might be better. they have a smoking section which is not freezing.

An establihment makes customers sure that thay will not visit again. Even this little fish restaurant has a decent service quality and let' say not bad food taste, will make you feel like a fool because of their price policy. Definitly you will stand up hungary if you do not want to spend a fortune. Unfriendly establishers.

The location of Cunda Balık is not as exciting as the name 'Cunda' suggests, but the food quality is very satisfactory.

Regarding the food, the appetizers (meze) are very fresh and tasty,... More

As regular visitors to Cunda (Ayvalık) and the "mother" restaurant we were thrilled when this satellite branch opened. It is the place where Istanbullus go to eat with friends and to share one of Turkey's best cuisines with visitors. The quality of the Aegean dishes are exceptional, the seafood and fresh greens and herbs brought daily from Ayvalik. Let yourself... More

We took our family to Cunda the other night and all were impressed by the quality and preparation of the food. The selection of mezze was huge. We tried a cheese and walnut spread that was particularly delicious. Our calamari was grilled perfectly and very tender. We had a filleted, whole grilled bass that was simply prepared but succulent and... More
