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

Mixed vegetables over yogurt(yum) stuffed grape leaves.. Fried calamari was perfect , as was our grilled sea bass.. Beautiful, lively atmosphere and very hospitable service.. Best... More

Loved everything about this restaurant. The owner took great care of us. You first go to what looks like a fish shop, where you discuss what you'd like to eat and hear what the suggestions are. Remember that you are paying by weight of the fish you choose. Because everyone in Turkey smokes, which I loathe, we were placed at... More

Izmir is a beautiful seaside town. My husband and I wanted a great seafood restaurant. The concierge of the hotel suggested this and told us to check trip adviser. Reviews were mixed but, the selling point is they provide a driver to and from the restaurant. There is no pricing and no menu. They bring a tray with their mezza's... More

Had the most tasteless mezz we had during our entire trip to Turkey here. Not many locals eating here and a big tour group came when we were there. The Swissotel sent us there and I was pretty disappointed by the food. On the same street as this restaurant there are dozens of restaurants. If I were to do it... More

The meze's are incredible and variety is unmatched. Great view of little fishermen's wharf, in one of the most serene and cozy locations on the Aegean Coast.

Their version of hummous is good (nice twist with the onion mixed in the hummous). 4. Meat balls are ok. They added the seafood rice,... More
