Fresh Seafood at a cost

The resto has mostly good reviews. The seafood like octopus and calamari are very fresh. The balik kokorec is quite nice as well. However, the restaurant is more on the expensive side averaging 30 tl per dish. Portions are quite small too.

Reservation is a must at this restaurant. Also please tell them your choice of table inside or outside. Because the reservationist did not asked us, and automatically reserved a table outside which was somewhat cold for us. After stressful some moments they were able to accommodate us with a table inside. The horderves were not that good, but the fish... More

Overall, was good. Good starter choices and very good fish. For me, the grilled octopus, grilled seabass, fried calamari were some of the good stuff I tried.

This restaurant is on the bottom floor of the Palas hotel. It has both inside and outside dining. Located directly on the Izmir waterfront dining outside facing the Aegean sea is a wonderful experience. In the summer darkness falls about 9:30 PM Their menu is extensive and after dining there periodically since early 1972, I have never had a bad... More

Have been in better seafood restaurants in Izmir with better price. The room we have been was overcrowded, not very comfortable.

I can't really disagree with most of our fellow contributors on this restaurant, as I seen something of all the comments below. I am here on business at the moment and therefore sampling as many of the seafront restaurants as I can. I have visited five so far, and none have been bad on even average for that matter. We...

The grilled seabass we ate was very tasty - well-prepared, good quality fish. Our only concern was about the service: after we were seated, no one brought us menu until we asked for it, we also had to ask the staff to take our orders. We felt somewhat neglected, to name it.. I ordered a grilled octopus for starter and... More

Used to be the most popular fish place... Not any more... Service is really poor... Old staff is ignorant on customer wishes.. Many better fish restaurants on kordon..

Deniz restaurant is local and reputable fish restaurant on the Kordon waterfront in Izmir. They serve various daily fresh fish and mezes. Because of the season I recommend Sea bass fish. This restaurant is a typical local Turkish fish restaurant and good for business meals. I recommend this fish restaurant.
