I am very happy to visit this old but new restaurant. The staff, the chef are friendly and as good as ever. All the seafood from grill are superbly and expertly cooked and served. Meze varieties and tastes are unbeatable.

This restaurant was a classic, old school fish restaurant with terrific service and fresh fish. It is on the more expensive side, but the quality is definitely there. Right on the cornishe overlooking the sea.

Situated bang on the quayside of Izmir Bay by the old quarter of downtown Izmir is to be found this smart and rather large seafood restaurant. Parking's a bit tricky so either walk there or use their valet parking. I certainly really enjoyed everything I had there - from the fine array of fish and seafood starters to nibble and... More

Visited for a late business dinner last week the restaurant was really busy but we managed to get a table outside overlooking the bay with a great view. They have a wide range of seafood to offer and our waiter asked us to come inside to the display fridge to select our choice of fish. We went for garlic prawns... More

One of the best sea food restaurant not in town, in country. Their fish's and seafoods are enormous. Taste is excellent, service is brilliant. Location is breath taking. So everrything is perfect, except price. Price is even more expensive than istanbul bosphorous.

Nice taste, but the sea food choices are very limited, chicken and meat has much more variety, and the place is classy.
