“Up-market”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Deniz Restaurant is traditionally the most expensive fish restaurant on Izmir's 'Kordon' seafront. The place to take your important guests or to impress your high-maintenance girlfriend. Vastly over-rated in terms of quality with regard to price. Standard range of fish dishes, well cooked but plainly presented. Much better value to be had in other Kordon restaurants or, even better, in back-streets away from the seafront.

“Best fish restaurant in Izmir”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

Notwithstanding my limited experience of Izmir restaurants, Turkish friends assured that Deniz is the best fish restaurant in Izmir, at least the most famous. Well, eating there was definitely pleasant and enjoyable. You have a large choice of any kind of fish, definitely fresh (you can choose from the display which one you want to be cooked), impeccable service (English spoken) and nice local wines. The only negative is that there is a bit formal atmosphere, not so lively. Anyway, if you are in good company it doesn't matter. A bit pricey for Turkey, but worthwhile. Safe choice and pleasure guaranteed

“exaggerated reputation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

not like 1980's.
waiters hate you, they are bored to serve same dishes, same hypocrisy by customers
salted fish with saffron sauce and similar specialities are more than expensive.
sukse as dessert is recommended.
reservation mandatory.

“Best seafood in Izmir”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

I had dinner with friends at this restaurant on November 14, 2013 and thought everything we ordered from salad, to soup, to main course and desert was exceptional in taste. The seafood soup was out of this world. The salad was fresh, nicely presented and came with a light olive oil based dressing that made us feel healthy. Our main course was broiled sea bass served with grilled vegetables. The sea bass was so fresh, so moist and tasty, we had to ask how they managed to broil it and still keep it so moist. We ended our dinner with a yummy mixed desert plate and Turkish coffee. Everything on the plate was exceptionally nice tasting and went very well after seafood. Obviously, this restaurant knows what they are doing. I can't wait to visit Deniz Restaurant during my future visits to Izmir.
