The food, service, and atmosphere at this restaurant is lovely. We have been a few times and Ali and his colleagues always make an effort to give everyone who comes in a warm welcome. The food is delicious and there is no skimping on the meat - the beef stifado (stew) is mostly beef & not bulked up with cheaper... More

Popped into Izmir for an evening meal just after a long stay in Turkey. Practised my disgraceful Turkish (which was accepted with good humour) and had a beautiful meal with a plate of mixed meze for two to start, then perfectly cooked sea bass with gorgeous vegetables and a delicious mixed salad with feta cheese and pomegranate extract dressing. My... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch on Sunday and was quite worried when we walked in as we were the only people in there. As the meal continued we really couldn't understand why no one else had come for lunch. We assumed people tend to opt for a cheap pub carvery on a sunday, but when this restaurant offers a 2... More

average food, very overpriced, felt that the wait staff were pushing the daily specials, food is nothing special, just ok. had the beef stiffado and chicken dishes , nothing special. make sure if you tip the server they keep the money, as the greedy owners take all the gratuities off the staff and supposedly share it out monthly

It is ok, but certainly not number 2 in Barry. I arrived after the offers and felt the food at full price was a bit expensive. I had the beef stifardo, which was as nice as any I have had before. However the rice that came with it was a very small portion. I was still hungry after. The service... More

I've lived in Barry for 10 years, driven past Izmir no end of times but just never fancied it, the pictures of dancing ladies outside confused what sort of place it was for me. Well, what a pleasant surprise, we went for a meal last night and it was seriously good! Fresh cooked food, full of flavour, great atmosphere and... More

The best food I've had recently typical Aegean atmosphere and excellent service. If you expect being welcomed and dine in a great place. This place must be tried. Thanks a lot to Ali and Izmir restaurants team...

Edible. But highly disappointing. No depth of flavour or bite in flavour. Looked like the sort of place you go and share a meze menu and have a good night.
