This place is absurdly expensive for what it is. We were charged $5500 Turkish lira for a few mezes and one main dish (a combo of a white grilled fish and veggies). If you don’t speak Turkish they will take advantage of you so stay...away!!!More

This is a pleasant place at the beachfront. The fish is fresh and well-cooked, however, the prices are extremely high. Do expect European not Turkish prices. We ordered 3 meze + 1 medium-size fish to share + 2 small beers + 1 glass of wine...- this cost us about 75 Euro. The wine was very poor quality. The cover charge and service charge are mandatory, the cover charge covers bread, water and olives. No complimentary fruit or dessert offered.More

The food and service were ok but on the final bill there were 2 extra beers which the restaurant insisted we had. Refused to correct the bill, plus unusual service charge as well as the cover fee. I would not recommend it to anyone for...that reasonMore

Beautiful setting, professional and friendly service, and good cuisine, however it is not cheap. Mezzes are OK but the fish is very good.

Please be aware that they cheat on tourists. They add 80 lt for something you will never know. Service comes separately as 20lt per person (so this is not service). Not nice at all. Food is average

We spend our summers in Torba, and have been to Gonca Balik tens of times. We arrived on 7 July and immediately went to dinner to what has been our favourite restaurant. The place is the same, fantastic setting, the food is the same, but...the price has skyrocketed. Example: grilled artichokes, price for 2 artichokes: 100 TL; glass of wine from LAL (which you buy at Migros for 80 TL): 80TL per glass; Jumbo shrimp: 500 TL per kilo. Yes, the food is good, but not THAT good! Yes, the service is good, but again, not THAT good. while we enjoyed the setting, and while we can easily afford the price, we do not like the principle of charging the customer whatever the market will bear. We will now go for dinner in another restaurant.More

First, let's start with the place: right on the edge of the water, under the trees, in a secluded part of Torba Bay. Then, let's talk about the welcome: warm, friendly, at your own pace. Finally, there is the food: cold meze are superb, especially...the dover sole meze. The fish is fresh, varied, and provided at a very good price. Wines are Turkish and of high quality. Altogether, this restaurant is my favorite in the entire Bodrum area and I recommend it highly.More
