this restaurant is not a fancy place but if you eat up on the third floor, it has amazing views of the bay. very relaxed atmosphere whereby you can hear each other. the seafood was very tasty. the shrimp appetiser was delicious.

If you're in amasra and want to try sea food you can give this restaurant a try. Their salad was pretty good. The servers weren't the best but it's an ok restaurant overall.

Except the experience we had another restaurant, here satisfies us. Fish was great, price is affordable but needs little more hospitality.

Lovely restaurant, with beautiful views of the harbour. The service is excellent and the grilled fish I had, fresh and delicious. I ordered something else first ---small fish , fried, by mistake as I didn't quite follow what the menu said (I am not Turkish) and with a smile, the staff changed it to the grilled fish I so enjoyed....

Used to be one of the best in Amasra in terms of view, food, service, price and overall quality. Been going there for years and the food and service quality declined while the prices skyrocketed. Not recommended anymore.

This is one of two fish restaurants that were recommended by our Turkish friends. The multi level restaurant overlooks the harbour which is a plus. The service was excellent even with a language barrier. The fried calamari was tender and the sauce that accompanied it was quite tasty. The whitefish was a plateful of small fish lightly breaded and fried.... More

This place had a wonderful view of the harbor and we were blessed by a sweet breeze while we ate. I had the Sea Bass (Levrek) and it was perhaps the best I've had in all of Turkey.

Many friends had recommended this restaurant to us, so during our visit to Amasra, we chose it for our first dinner in town. Our experience proved to be way below our expectations.... The menu was what I call "traditional" Amasra menu: famous Amasra salad (famous due to its decoration), fried whiting fish and yogurt dessert and lots of hors d'oeuvres.... More

The most famous fish restaurant in Amasra. It has an excellent view, and the service is quick. However, beware of being a sitting duck where the photographers and flower sellers are concerned. I'm also not sure where the 25 lira for soft drinks came from...
