One of the best meals I have ever had.

Yengec is a seafood restaurant that sits on the water with fishing boats and pleasure boats docked in front of it. We were treated to a magnificent full moon rise with our dinner. We washed the meal down with Raki. The restaurant has a very large selection of mezes, literally dozens. Our... read more

This was the best meal we had in Izmir. We were lucky enough to meet the owner, Kerim, and his son the night before and he made our trip so special. The grilled calamari was incredible. We also had artichokes wrapped around sea bass which was to die for. Every course was so delicious and many of the preparations were... More

Our hotel sent several business travelers that evening, and we were warmly welcomed. We don't speak Turkish, so a lady helped us select fish from the cooler and recommended items. Calamari and shrimp starters were excellent, as were our fish dinners. A man offered us a special dessert, and the caramel souffle was delicious.

The food in general was indeed fresh and good, but we have had better in the past, making us regret that we didn't go to a more traditional restaurant. Before getting a table we got to choose the fish and seafood we wanted. We got a small and very tasty lobster, some quite good shrimps and mullets and a slice... More

This is the best fish I've had - a big call. The service was a bit diffident at times but who cares when the product is this good. A wonderful salad came with tender local calamari, the came little red mullet followed by brim. All fantastic. Good wine service and the meal finished with a baked pudding, with a butterscotch...
