“Fantastic fresh food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2012

Mezze were superb. There is a wide choice that makes selection difficult! The fish was wonderful and in front of you are the boats that probably bought the catch of the day in. It's fresh, fresh, fresh!
The staff are attentive and pleasant - they don't mind if you can't speak very good (any?) Turkish, they are very welcoming. I guess it's not cheap but I would say it is excellent value. The restaurant in on an unspoilt, working harbour. We're definitely going to go there again!

“In one word... Charming!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2012

If you have few spare hours in Izmir and want to take advantage of it to taste Aegean seafood at its best, you should not miss this one. Their great food is only surpassed with exceptional location of the restaurant by a little, old-style fishing harbor.
Superbly fresh ingredients, and some of the most original, most creative warm starters I've seen in any Mediterrenean country (Crete and Sicily included). Try baby squid with spinach or sevketi-bostan (a local delicacy extracte from wild herbs roots)with mushrooms. You will discover tastes not to forget. As for main course, try to stick with grilled fish (definitely catch of the day here) or better, try deep fried red mullet which is a specialty of nearby waters.
How to get there? If you drive, take Izmir-Cesme tollway (or slightly slower parallel highway), some 30 km, get out at Urla exit, then watch for Iskele (means quay) signs or simply drive towards the sea. Once in Iskele town, Sahil restaurant is on western end of little harbor. There are also frequent public buses departing from Izmir's main square (Konak), or even more frequent minibuses (called Dolmush) departing from Uckuyular terminal and arriving Iskele in less than an hour.

“Fresh Seafood in an Authentic Aegean Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2011

The restaurant is situated in the charming village Urla of Aegean coast. The restaurant has nothing special in terms of decoration: its mainly the very authentic setting and beautiful view and very delicious and always fresh food that make it so popular. The service is very attentive, solution oriented: they even get additional tables for you if the restaurant is full. Best is to make a reservation as the place is always full of customers. The hors d'oeuvres are not to be missed. The prices are a little bit high when compared with the region's average prices but the location, the food, the service and the overall experience compensate for this difference.
