The Central and Southern Aegean Coast Restaurants



Aquarium Review

At branches on the water in Gümüşlük and Yalıavak, begin a meal with stuffed zucchini flowers, roasted eggplant with tulum cheese, and octopus salad—you may want to just keep working your way through the starters—a meal in themselves—or let the owner, Cengiz Bey, help you select the best local fish for the grill. Whatever you choose, don't skip dessert. After years of buying all their baklava from Gaziantep, Aquarium finally imported a Gaziantepli baklava-whisperer, who uses only pistachioes from his hometown, and makes a mean irmik helvası (traditional warm semolina halvah, served with ice cream) as well.
