Great place to have a nice seafood dish, from simple grilled seabass to lots of inventive fish dishes, set in a quiet neighbourhood, with a nice terrace and friendly staff.

A lively, multi-cultural clientele, popular with locals, owned by a very gracious and interesting Ob-Gyn. Food and service were excellent. Try roasted octopus in heavy ink sauce. Lots of Mediterranean seafood specialties.

Me and my friends went there had delicous food. Their appetizers are great and you should taste especially seafood appetizers. Their raki and white wine is also great. You can have a talk with your friends easily without annoying loud music. Definetely go and have a wonderful night with delicious food.

If you would like to taste Greek & Turkish traditional food i'd highly recommend this place. You may not find local foods in the afternoon however you may try the fix menu. Try: Levreki with şevketibostan

This is a nice restaurant that seems to get very busy at lunch time so go early. The food is excellent and very well prepared. The staff are friendly too.

We happily join the chorus of Sakiz fans. The restaurant featured a unique array of unusual Aegean seafood dishes. Of particular note, were the seabass house specialties. The variety of meze was unusual as well, including sardines and other fish dishes. The owner host was welcoming, warm, and very helpful. Frankly, the restaurant was an extraordinarily good value as well.

Sakiz Restaurant offers a wide selection of Mediterranean and particularly Aegean food. It is heavy on fish and Aegean herbs and greens. They have interesting fish dishes which you can not eat anywhere else. For example "Sea bass in garlic mustard sauce with blessed thistle" is an invention of the chef and an absolute delight. If you want you can... More

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 entrees the first night. While this restaurant... 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
