Good medium restaurant in the Swissotel in Izmir. This restaurant is specialized in local Turkish food based mainly on fish. The restaurant team speaks not so good English which makes it difficult to communicate but they provide a great service and good food. Price / Quality level is acceptable.

We took one dinner since it was closed for lunch. Tastes were average (maybe their chef at vacation too) , fish was below average and bill was doubling istanbul bosphorous. Not suggestible at vacation times I dont know business times.

Delicious Turkish and Aegean traditional starters, fresh fish, great Greek live music, warm and welcoming staff and surprisingly reasonable price for a sea food restaurant. Definitely must try...

I visited the restaurant with a few friends for a casual diner. Such a nice ambiance with outdoor seating, relaxing. Great food and great service. I will definitely visit this restaurant again.

get fish from the grill in this cozy fish restaurant in the garden of the hotel. Inside the restaurant you will have a under water view at the swimming pool.

The first thing that you appreciate here is the welcoming by the manager and the team. You may say that this is a standard in Turkey and Izmir but honestly not always and not that genuin. The place is as well nice. In the middle of the Swisshotel, but in an open area with a nice design, using the hotel... More
