“Awesome fish, bustling restaurant, but not cheap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I was simply stunned by how good the fish was. I mean, it was just grilled, with some lemon on it--nothing special, right? But boy was it tasty. We went with the waiter's recommendation to grill a whole sea bream and also accepted his suggestions for the side orders (meze). Everything was terrific. We went early at 7 pm with kids and they said we could have a window seat (great view of the busy street below, by the way) if we cleared out by 8.30 pm. Well, they made sure of it with quick, efficient, attentive service. And sure enough, by 8 pm the place was completely packed.
Of course such good service and such excellent fish come at a price--the bill was quite hefty, even though we had only half a bottle of the cheapest white wine on the menu.

“great place and fun view of the street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Tunali Hilmi is a major shopping street in hte Kavaklidere district of Ankara. Tunali Balikcisi is a new restuarant located across from the body shop store. Sit by the window and have a great view to watch all the people and the crazy traffic !! the decor is nautical and the waitstaff was attentive and extremely good. There was a very good rose wine, unfortunately I do not know the name. My husband and I went with friends and had an absolutely awesome evening. We were there over 4 hours and were not rushed at all. The appetizers were selected from the showcase as they change often and the rest of the meal came consistantly, was well presented and extremely good. Prices on the menu seemed to be very reasonable. A definate recommend. !!!
