Bay Nihat is one of the best restaurant in Cunda. You may find almost same kind of fish everywhere but mezes no, please try avronyez, akkız, aquades, kidonya or ask Mr. Savash he would help you...

Had a cupra fish and raki at the restaurant. The service was friendly, helpful and fast. The food was also very nice. A bit noisy, and the selection was a bit constrained for me trying to avoid fishs.

Bay Nihat was very famous and recommended by many food lovers.We could not find what we have expected.The meze and fish is ordinary but very expensive.We understand why it was nearly empty. You can find better restaurants at affordable prices elsewhere.

I went 1 week in Cunda Island and I spent almost all my evening in this restaurant. The food is excellent and the service absolutely perfect. They serve probably the fresher fish of Turkey.

In my eyes this restaurant is a complete tourist trap. It doesn't look really nice and feels like mass processing. Moreover there is no menu, you just order and get the completely overpriced bill afterwards. A small beer was 16 TRY which is approximately 5 EUR! In other restaurants you pay 10 TRY for a big beer! They have fresh... More
