“Service Lacking, Food Good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Our experience at Altin Balik was a bit lacking. It started off bad. We were seated and since it was early there was only one other table in the restuarant. Immediately we noticed that the other table was smoking profusely (Yes it is a non-smoking restaurant). When we asked to be reseated away from them and also pointed out that they were smoking, the response was along the lines of "Oh really, well just a little." My wife is Turkish so we were communicating well, and we do understand that the smoking enforcement is sometimes different in Turkey, but the attitude was abnormal in our experience. Usually they are apoligetic at least. From there, the service was basically poor- I think they did not like us after that. We did order some nice fish and it was very tasty and well prepared as were the salads. For some reason we had struggles getting a menu to look at and when they brought it, they only brought one for the table. The price ended up being pretty good. 3 adults and a kid cost about $60 total. For fresh fish and some salads that is pretty good.

“Good service and great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

If you fancy a beer or wine with your food in Yalova the coices are limited. Altin Balik is really nice and an excellent choice. The food was excellent and the staff very attentive without being over intrusive. Excellent value for money.
