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 Mediterranean cuisine, wide selection of appetizers and seafood, fresh fish, quality and well cooked food , moderate prices . We tried the fried squids accompanied with yogurt sauce and the grilled squids with pesto sauce . Both of them... 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

We had dinner here twice during our stay in Izmir. When we checked out the menu at lunch time it was packed with locals. Turkish food with a twist especially seafood and fish. Excellent quality. Large selection of mezes- we enjoyed the stuffed zucchini flowers and the air dried mackerel. Highly recommended the spicy fish, grilled octopus and fried calamari.... More

Large variety of Greek meals, delicious, music and very pleasant to spend time in this restaurant. I liked the meals. There may be some delay at the service whether it is crowded.

A spur of the moment decision where to eat dinner and what a decision... It was amazing... Seven of us were in Izmir the 2'nd of May and ate here. The service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble. We almost all had a different main course. I had their recommended dish Sea Bass with milk thistle root and it... More

The food here is incredible. Without doubt the best I had in the entire trip in Turkey. I went there as the Lonely Planet picked it as one of the best in Izmir and it was spot on!!! Its not your standard Turkish restaurant as it had a very modern style to the presentation. Food quality was excellent and the... More
