I wasn't so impressed with this place as I was hoping! The fish is good nothing to say about it but there was nothing else there: the service is very fast and completely un-attentive, the food is trow at you more than served and the wine is just poured (they do not even let you taste the bottle!) and the...

Besides the classical Turkish fish restaurant starters, they offer a variety of starters with artichoke even some stuffed with fish. The location is good, on Kordon across the sea, close the pubs area. It is mostly crowded and no parking available, as most of the restaurants in the area.

Walking along the seafront promenade, we found our way to the restaurant which does not look very different from the others. But we thoroughly enjoyed the fresh fish of our choice served with the choicest salads and dressing. The place overlooking the sea, had a riotous atmosphere of casual dining with a thoroughfare in front of the seating area. We... More

This is the ultimate place for meze & Seafood. Huge variety of cold or warm meze's, most of them prepared with their own recipes. Also fresh Seafood is available every day. I personaly prefer a glass of rakı to enjoy the fresh prepared dishes.
