It looks like a standard beach restaurant and it probably is. The decor is simple and the staff is outlandishly friendly. But ... the fish - that you select yourself from the catch of the day- is so fresh that you wouldn't believe it. You first pick starters from a tray and a fish from the counter and you are... More

The owner of this excellent harbor-front restaurant told us that when he was living in California, he dreamed of owning a restaurant back in his native Turkey. He went on to say that having accomplished this, he now works seven days a week, cannot take a day off regardless of how he is feeling, and that he is tired but... More

In a good fish restaurant you need to see the fish exposed for the customers. In this restaurant they have a seperate section where you can see all kinds of fish that they have. No hiding.. Fish price is a bit expensive though but the total amount of the check is balanced with the rest of the food. Also the... More

To begin with, the food was very good. However, our impression of the place was ruined by a pushy waiter who very aggressively tried to steer us to the most expensive items without telling the prices. He would not give us the menu until demanded to see it. Even after that he would not bring us the meze plate to... More

This is a restaurant in Kordon, which is highly recommended by all the hotels in town, including mine. They will even send you a car at the hotel! I should have known better but it had very good reviews from may reviewers in this side. The hotel has a nice setting and view, like many dozen in the Kordon. The... More

Just ate here tonight and had a great experience. The fish was incredibly fresh and well prepared. I had a salad that was so fresh and crisp. Service was excellent and prompt. We are staying at the Movenpick Hotel, and the restaurant picked us up and returned us promptly to the hotel free of charge. Our meal was less than... More

The dinner to remember for a long time :freshest sea bass, even my husband who does nor care for fish loved it! The service to remember - the owner of the restaurant greeted us, educated on options and advised the selection. And if this was not enough treated with " surprise" desert absolutely to die for! I strongly recommend it,

Had a wonderful meal here tonight. Everything was fresh, delicious and so tasty - the setting and the friendly staff just added to the fab experience. Choosing your fish from the selection on ice was a great way to start the meal - the staff explained patiently what everything was and how it could be cooked. We had grilled fillet... More
