I have always been satisfied with what I eat and drink in this restaurant. Service is very good and the mezes are fresh & delicious. It is at Kordon/Alsancak which is one of the best places of Izmir. If you go there at sunset, you can drink your rakı against the beautiful panorama of Izmir bay. I miss it already!

The best fish restaurant on the Kordon, hands down, and there are plenty of places to choose from. If you are looking for high quality seafood prepared in a variety of creative, delicious manners, than look no further. Who cares about the atmosphere or the view; here it is all about the food. Stay focused. Try the following: the grilled... More

We had a lunch for two during a business day. The restaurant was empty except for some businessmen and elder people. The seafood were fresh as usual, the waiters were very quick and kind.

If you want fresh fish this is the place to come. had a wonderful mixed veg salad before tucking into a couple of different grilled fish. Had halva and fruit for dessert which was a real childhood memory. Would definitely recommend. We had a local guide/interpreter who helped with our meal selection which was well worthwhile
