We had one meal here at lunchtime, friendly staff and food was tasty and value for money. Beautiful scenic views to look around whist enjoying a glass of your favourite wine or a cool beer.

We visited this restaurant on our way back from a day out in Bodrum. The food was great and the setting, on the waters edge, made for a perfect evening. The service was efficient and friendly. A great place to go, if a little on the pricey side.

Gonca Balik serves very good quality meze and sea food right by the sea. Calamari, grilled octopus, barbun ( local fish ) are all very fresh and well prepared and cooked. Service is excellent and the owner Zeki Bey is a true local business man with respect for land and sea and all. They have swimming dogs to enojy watching... More

The ambience is nice, it is by the sea. The mezes are tasty and the fish is good. Service is not as fast as it should be. You can wait for the waiter for 10 minutes. Too expensive for the service and the food you get.

This is a very good Restaurant, they have good fish and nice mezzes. It's a romantic place, but there's also a kids play area which makes it convenient for families as well. Recommended!!

If you are in for meze and raki night, definitely gonca balik can be an option. Fish choices are rather limited and does not fullfill the eye. But with mezes you can close this gap easily. And it s not pricy if you compare it with other options...

This place should change its name to 'The Run Out Of' ... The food they had tasted ok but it was self service ... when you placed youre order they shouted your name so you could go and collect an overloaded tray. That said .... about 6 or 7 choices of food or drink was finished ... including burgers, coke... More

A difficult restaurant to review. I wanted to give it an 'average' score, but the starters were pretty good and the fresh sea bass so beautifully cooked that would be unfair. Weirdly, for a Saturday evening (20:30) we were the only customers, so we were surrounded by waiters Only one guy spoke good enough English to understand what we wanted... More

When it comes to fish; hit the fish counter choose what you want to eat and ask the chef the best way to prepare it for you. Medium priced restaurant to eat good and... More
