Beautiful meze - starters. The amazing dish there - must order - is perch fish with artichokes, boiled in a lemon sauce.

A walk along Kordonboyu and a craving for seafood got us to stop here for dinner. And boy, our taste buds were in for a delectable taste of pure awesomeness!We found the kalamari in soy sauce and the shrimp irresistibly good. The fish tasted like any other grilled dish but was notably fresh. We definitely got seafood drunk here!

This restaurant s one of the best restaurants, which are serving sea food. All the team are friendly and know their business very well. The food is very delicious. Not expensive. If you visit Izmir try this place.

There are hundreds of fish restaurants in Izmir but Balickci Hasan serves some of the best fish dishes in town! I love to come here with my husband but also when friends or family are visiting from abroad! Also all mezze I have tasted so far were absolutely delicious!!

The fish was delicious and fresh well prepared the location is right on the seaside , had to wait 30 ministers to be seated , the service is very poor compared to the price as waiters did not speak English and insisted on speaking Turkish with kind of attitude of if you don't speak Turkish go get a Turkish teacher....

On the seafront of Izmir, fish can be a delicious experience, Hasan prides himself with the freshness of his fishes, but they can be very expensive, as well as good white wine. The good fish is becoming more and more rare, but a judicious selection on the menu or even better at the fridge and a classic raki can save... More
