Fresh Fish in a Seafood Restaurant right on the Water

We enjoyed a good seafood lunch whilst on a tour of Princes Island. Great location, busy the water. To explain Ali Baba's is on Buyukaka the largest of the Princes Island and there are many tourists.

It serves too expensive frozen seafood and greasy mezes! The food served also was not in good quality, it was mushy. It has friendly staff.

I have two favourite fish restaurant's in Turkey, both next to the water, Ali Baba's is on Buyukada the largest of the Princes Islands, there are a number to ferries to Buyukada every day, and believe me it is well worth the effort to visit Princes Islands and Ali Baba, everyday there is a selection of fresh fish on display...

like the previous reviewer, the well dressed gentleman offered us guide maps and timetables for the islands, strongly hinting the largest of the islands, Buyukada being the best.
