Good Seafood

If you are not on low budget and if you are ready to pay for tasty seafood, this is the place for you. Just select your main course fish from the cold display and order starters. Then enjoy your meal.

Our food and service was ok - not bad, not exceptional. It's a nice place on the seaside but there are usually a lot of cars parked there, so you won't really have a view. It's a bit pricey compared to some of the other restaurants I've been to, but comparable for that area.

We went to this restaurant as it was much touted on Tripadvisor. Made a booking for outside (the weather was beautiful) for the evening via the hotel but were told we were upstairs by the window. No major issue ...but we were for most of our dinner alone in this large space...which was a bit weird but OK if you... More

We had been inland for a few days and we very happy to be able to eat fish for a change. We loved the way we could choose our meze and fish for dinner. The service was attentive and helpful and the wine by the glass very good. We sat upstairs with a great view of the harbour and enjoyed... More

Had high expectations perhaps as felt a little disappointed. Fish is fresh but I think it could have been prepared better. The calamari was delicious, everything else was just ok. When we came to pay they had added the service but not itemised it, so had we not added up carefully the items, we would not have realised this &... More

It is hard to distinguish between the restaurants on this strip in Izmir. There are so many. This place was not extraordinary. We felt ripped off as the fish was overdone and too dry. The wine list given to us did not have prices shown on it. I guess we were given the card reserved for tourists coming from the... More

This is a lovely restaurant for fish near the busy sea side of Izmir near the port. The stuff and especially the owner are very helpful and polite, eager to describe dishes in detail. For starters they bring you a tray with samples and you chose what you like. They have a big variety of fresh fish for a very... More

I visited the restaurant a couple of days ago with my friend. The service was great and the food was cooked nicely. We had the squash blossoms, calamari and Sea Bass. The squash blossoms had good flavor and the squid was crunchy and fresh. The sea bass was grilled delicately and had good flavor. It's a much visit if you... More

We were there last week for a business dinner and enjoyed a lot. Their food is excellent fresh and many new dishes from sea foods. They are in the heart of the city, Kordon. Definitely will go again:)
