Although I do not prefer fish and seafood, i was surprised how tasteful it was prepared in this restaurant! And I really enjoyed it. Also, service was reasonably good, so I left this restaurant having in mind that I will visit it again.

My Turkish business associate in Instambul has invited us for dinner to this restaurant for its fresh seafood. We really enjoyed every moment. The service prompt and friendly. It looks to be a popular spot for locals and not very attractive to tourists. The food however is really amazing.

Excellent seafood restaurant, with a wide selection of absolutely fresh fish and other seafood delicacies. You pick your fish form the on-ice display near the entrance and the cooks will prepare it as directed. Good selection of Turkish wines. Nice view of the seaside. This restaurant is good for entertaining business clients or taking the family on an upscale seafood... More

This must be my 5 or 6 time here and it never disappoints. Always tasty fresh seafood and good service. I would recommend to get the starters because they are really good. Eggplant and octopus are my favorite. Big restaurant but if you want to get a table outside you should book beforehand. The terrace is big but always busy

They are against kids who plays inline skate front of square. Misrable people. Worst. Beware. Only knows selling alcholic beverages with high fees.
