This was so delicious that we ate here twice during out stay in Izmir

Lonely Planet said not to miss this lovely little place near the water in Izmir. They were right, so right in fact that we at there twice. I am an aubergine (eggplant) fan. Sakiz's eggplant preparations were not to be missed, especially the aubergine puree that formed the base for our sea bass... read more

The welcome and customer service is great and they made our stay very pleasant. The atmosphere of the restaurant was lovely; there is live music 3 nights a week and we really benefitted from the lovely atmosphere this created. The menu is mainly fish dishes and everything is fresh and well made. The blend of flavours is delicious and left... More

Based on all the good reviews, we thought to give this place a try. As a starter we asked the waiter to bring us a selection of some of the starters. He served the cold starters, only, which was a pitty, but for the rest it was ok, and than just that. As main dish we shared a steak. It... More

We tried seabass (in turkish called 'levrek') and seabream (in turkish called "cupra"). They were delicious. I highly recommend this place.

I really loved the daily changing girit sofrasi....starters really. Next time I would like to try the fish dishes. Nice location with cafes around....very friendly staff. I have never seen such a clean (I mean spotless) place....well done!

We decided to splurge on a Saturday evening, so we booked a table inside the venue. (The terrace is full of smokers, legally smoking as it is "outside") We decided to try the fixed price menu (170 TL for two people including a bottle of decent wine). It turned out to be too much food but was worth it. They... More

Read about this restaurant in a travel guide, assumed it might be full of tourists. I think we may have been the only non locals there. The owner greeted us, it was a busy Friday night, and he got us a table. The food was incredible. The mezes were delicious. The yogurt with chilies, shrimp in filo, the cheese, chili,... More

After a month in Turkey and about to leave, I can say that this was the best meal we had during this trio. I can't recommend it enough! We share two starters and two mains. Since you also get nice bread with balsamic vinegar and olives, in hindsight we order too much food. But we did clean up our dishes.... More

Excellent flavors and variety. Love that they bring out a tray of mezes to choose from. Had the anchovies in olive oil ("Hamsi") - fantastic, stuffed zucchini flowers -delicate with lovely lemon and spice profile, and Begendili Levrek - which is a sea bass with aubergine puree. This was cooked perfectly - crunchy skin and tender fillet which was nicely... More
