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

No fish, only meze and extremely overpriced bill. Do not go unless you want to be ripped off! I have tried to explain to the bold owner/bully that it was not acceptable, but tough luck. He couldn't care less. Never again. Do not go unless you want to be ripped off!

I really admired the variety of appetizers. I guess there were more than 50 choices. The taste was also very good and the service is really nice. The surrounding is also very nice. It's very close to the seaside and if you make a reservation before going you may have the chance to eat very close to the sea. The... More

After stumbling around Cunda for the day it was finally time to settle on somewhere for dinner. My choice of Bay Nihat came down to: I didn't have a reservation and they were willing to sit me. All of the other places on the waterfront seemed booked solid (Rezerve signs everywhere). So first recommendation: plan in advance and make sure... More

Though we went without booking, the staff did their best to welcome us. It is on the seaside.Nice to view the sun set. Service was excellent. Mezes,fishes and other seafoods were fresh and delicious. Prices were higher than it's competitors. However it deserves.
