“Fish in the middle of Turkey”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

Normally I am sceptical to eat fish when I do not see water, but Trilye in Ankara has changed my view. :-) Here you get the best fish you can think about. I will recommend fish baked in salt. Worth waiting for!

“One of the best sea food in Ankara”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

If you want to have a delicious sea food dinner, this is the right place to go. Although the atmosphere interior is not good the patio is very nice if the weather is good. Insist on having a table outside if you expect a warm evening. The sea food is great. They have very nice and different treated fishes. We tried the fish cooked in salt. It was delicious. The prices are high but worths.

“Delicious but pricey and not so attractive ambiance”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

This fish restaurant is well-known and mostly good reputed one; thanks to its owner who has spent time and effort on fish and culinary arts. He has been presenting a TV programme on this topic on national TV. This had been our main motivation to taste their dishes even though such popularity had been scaring us in terms of prices.

Starters, fish and desserts were fresh, nicely prepared and served. My wife and I were both happy with tastes.

Prices are higher than average (as expected), so you might want to stick to menu prices in order to not to be shocked afterwards. To be honest, we have no regret in terms of that.

I appreciated their wine list and wine pricing policy; Smartly chosen, good wines for a variety of budgets.

Their lemon therapy -which is believed to relieve you- is a funny experience,

My main critic would be about the non-smoking tables. Typically their customer profile is dominated by smoke lovers (as in other equivalent restaurants). That is why best tables inside and outside are reserved for smokers. It is a big restaurant with many tables, but non-smoking tables are at the back, behind some columns and/or paravane. And the simplistic decoration of the restaurant do not help this in terms of nice ambiance when you have a rear table. You may feel abandoned in a rear table even though the service is attentive.

As a conclusion, Trilye is recommended but with a nicely located table at the front.

“Expensive restaurant”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

We were with our family. We ordered from the pre prepared food examples. They did not gave us a menu to choose the food. For a couple and a child we paid over150 euros. The food were just ok.
