I had dinner here with friends and it was very nice. We ate outside in a garden type area that lanterns hanging all throughout the trees. We were greeted with friendly smile and quickly seated even though it was very busy. Within minutes of being seated we were given salad and started and then our waited made some suggestions and...

A young friend took us there for late lunch/early dinner. The staff took care of our car and we entered a very nice garden next to a lovely old building, radiating past glories as well as contemporary quite style. Some nice treats came quickly to our table and I was ready for the kebab that I had been dreaming all... More

Great value for money. Excellent service, good wine list, traditional recipes in a modern environment. Starters and deserts are included in menu; just choose a nice main dish! Excellent choice: lamb and pilaf!!!! Don't forget to try real Ayran.

This was one of my favorite restaurants in Izmir. The food was delightful and the ambiance (outdoor seating) of the restaurant was wonderful. Many traditional Turkish BBQ meats were served. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We visited this restaurant a few days ago after reading all these recommendations in Tripadvisor. The place was very crowded but we found a table for two although we hadn't made a reservation. Anyone that will visit this restaurant has to be aware that there are not prices in the menu (!) and that they serve a green salad, some... More

One of a chain of meat-restaurants originating in Ankara, Izmir Recep Usta is excellent value for money. The menu offers a huge range of meat dishes, beautifully cooked and presented with a limited but delicious selection of traditional deserts and Turkish coffee to follow. Wine is served, not always the case in similar restaurants in more conservative cities. An excellent... More

I was invited here for a business dinner. The Turkish colleagues were very welcoming! Dishes were various and delicious. Do not forget to taste the Ayran: a wonderful yogurt for dinner in its typical "bowl and spoon"! ;) The place was interesting with many many lanterns in the garden... Even if I was sorry seeing several birds in cage... Surely,... More
