I went to princes island with my family this August. When we entered into the Ido ferry terminal in Kabatas, I noticed a person guiding people about the trip to princes island. He guided us as well which ferry to take and where to get off. I thought that he might be a member of Ido ferry, but at the... More

There are too many restaurants near the sea side , difficult to make a selection for visitors of this lovely island. Ali baba is for sure is our favorite one. Quality of food is good. Always fresh and good taste. In winter fish soup is good as starter. Better to reserve on summer time because it is always full. You... More

We went there through a tour, and we had fish for lunch. The portion was so small, that it did not satisfy my 8 year old kid! So be aware, to order some other things along with what will be served. I don't think it is the restaurant's mistake but rather the tour company. However, the food is delicious, the... More

First time at Ali Baba after it was recommended to us by a number of people as the best restaurant on Buyuk Ada. And we really enjoyed our lunch. The setting is lovely, practically on the water with great views. The service is good & the food is delicious. Though no baby changing area they were very accommodating in organising... More

You will enjoy the "mezes (starters) and local fish in this restaurant. ( As in my earlier threads about the fish restaurants in Turkey, "always ask the price of the fish you choose", it is better to be safe than to be sorry.) Try shrimp and octopus salads as well as other Turkish mezes.

In the gauntlet of Buyukada´s seaside restaurant promenade, with offers and invitations enthusiastically extended from all sides, we sat down at Ali Baba. We expected a tourist trap but rather, we were served a dinner we will long remember. Of course, you know it won´t be cheap when the owner guides you to the table, the starters arrive before you...
