Being a tourist guide myself and having to choose the right place for groups and individuals, I have never been let down by this fine Izmir restaurant. I have been to the Aquarium numerous times over the past 6 years and I have always had an experience of perfection. The food is exceptionally good quality, verging on the traditional to the modern Mediterranean cuisine, with fresh ingredients really beautifully presented. The service by the well trained, friendly, kind and smiling staff makes you feel at home. Volkan, the manager, will always attend to any request, being it a romantic wedding proposal organisation or a surprise birthday party. It's a restaurant for all seasons, with its artistically decorated garden open in the summer months. Last but not least, if you happen to be eating there on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, there's an extra treat at no extra cost. The best Greek music ensemble of Izmir, Okeanos, will take you back to the old musical traditions of cosmopolitan Izmir, with the rembetiko songs performed excellently by well known singer Evrim Ateşler and the buzuki player Mert Işyar. Especially for the many Greeks often visiting Izmir, it's always a great surprise to listen to Greek songs so perfectly performed by non-Greek musicians. A real must if you are in Izmir.
