Seafood in cunda

One of the best seafood restaurant in cunda. All appetizers are delicious, recommend sole fish with yogurt as warm starter.

There are better places, I found it a tourist trap, service was very slow, waiters unfriendly and haggling about the price wass uncomfortable because they advised us wrong. But it would be less bad if they did not overcook the levrek...waste of money.

Also known as Alibey Adasi (Adasi = Island) or Mr Ali's Island it is an idyllic spot on the waterfront of a quiet cove that fits any restaurateur's dreams. Opened in 1978 the most amazing thing is most of the crew, both front and back of house, are still around. Gokmen, our waiter, is the son of a senior waiter... More

We were there last week with my family and 2 other friends. The restorant was very well known in Cunda but it really not worth its reputation. We had salad cold and warm starter which I really did not like. I have been lots of other better places. Service also is not really good too. At the end prices are... More

I was recommended by local Cunda inhabitants to go to this place. It is a stylish, well run fish restaurant where food comes fresh from the sea. The choice of meze was large. I cannot say that the food was better than in similar restaurants, nor worse --- we enjoyed the meal and drinks. Service was very good. Only point... More

although it is on the expensive side, the food is quite tasty and varied. during high season it gets very crowded, then the service gets a bit lousy but other times the waiters are attentive.

Service poor. I had to send the salad back twice, because the green vegetables were not cleaned properly. There were little flies in the salad. Noone bothered to apologise. The price was extremely expensive. They don't provide menu with prices. You feel being cheated.

This place was recommended to us as the most famous among all fish restaurants in Cunda. The cold and warm mezes were avarage at best. Service was very slow. I asked for a grilled fish which was served in almost an hour. When I complained, their clever reason was "because we use coal grill". Really? Am I stupid? And to... More

We had cold and warm mezes. The food quality is average, service quite bad and quite overpriced for what you get. We had to ask for warm bread four times and we were nearly finished with our meal when it arrived. I asked for wet towels, did not come. This is a generally highly recommended place in Cunda, however, I... More

This is the first time I felt that I paid really too much for what I ate. They do not deserve the price. Where they do not deliver a menu with price. You feel you are cheated. Absolutely not advised
