Probably the best restaurant for business meals. I visited the restaurant on several occasions either for lunch or diner. The service is always first class, the choice of fresh fish and fresh starters is amazing. Just on the so called Kordon with a view of the Izmir bay.

The service is efficient and the menu offers a wide selection. Everything is very fresh and the calamari was delicious. I recommend making a reservation so that you can have a table with a sea view.

I thoroughly enjoyed the grilled grouper , it was really fresh. We actually picked it from the live well and it exceeded all of our expectations. The bread , the Calimary and everything we ate were fantastic.

In my opinion, this is a very experienced sea restaurant in Izmir. You may be quite sure that you will remember the delicious tastes you will experience here for a long time. The only negative is that you will eat your dinner of lunch at a table in close quarters. This is an expensive one in Turkish standarts.

Our dinner at Deniz was OK but nothing special. To start we ordered some calamari to share, but it came with the rest of our meals. It was very good, however - the highlight of the evening. For mains we had meatballs and grilled fish. The fish and meat themselves were quite good, but came with salads that were uninspiring... More

The salad and first course was mediocre. Fish was good. But prices in this restaurant are over the top. Even for Istanbul people. Definitely not value for your money. I am sure you may find better food even half the price in Izmir.
