Guzelbahce Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Guzelbahce

August 8, 2017 Kaleigh Reichenbach

Güzelbahçe is a coastal district of İzmir Province in Turkey. Until 2009 Local Government Elections, Greater İzmir Municipality had 9 district (second-tier) municipalities and Güzelbahçe was one of the smallest district municipality in terms of land area and population. With March 2009 Local Elections, İzmir Greater (Metropolitan) Municipality now have 21 district municipalities, since new municipalities had established due to high population of some major second-tier municipalities like Karşıyaka and Konak. Now, İzmir Greater (Metropolitan) Municipality has several smaller municipalities in terms of land area coverage, however, Güzelbahçe still remains as the smallest municipality within the metropolitan area in terms of population. March 2009 Local Elections of Turkey has also resulted of mergers of villages and town municipalities with their respective second-tier / district municipalities in all greater municipalities. Therefore, parallel to this regulation and changes, Yelki town municipality and Çamlık Villages become part of Güzelbahçe Municipality in 2009. Although the population of Güzelbahçe Municipality increased little, the land area increased greatly. The population and land borders of Güzelbahçe County/District however remained same. Güzelbahçe is part of the İzmir Greater (Metropolitan) Area and Municipality since the establishment of İzmir Greater Municipality in 1984. Although Güzelbahçe seems very urbanized at the rate of 82,7 percent, there are relatively remote villages in the Southern part of the Güzelbahçe Municipality. These villages, like Payamlı, Kavacık, (Kavacık become part of newly established Karabağlar second-tier district municipality in March 2009) are/were part of the Güzelbahçe County/District and famous with their delicious grapes grown on mostly steep hills and mountains. Vineyards during summer and autumns have worth to visits and grapes are definitely worth to taste due to natural growth. Grapes in the vineyards different due to lack of major irrigation or watering.

We had a great lunch here on a cold day in early Oct. since practically all of the Seating is outdoors we got a little cold.
The food was very good...especially the Musakka. (An eggplant dish with ground. Meat in a tomato sauce)
Service was quick and very efficient

This is a local neighbourhood restaurant specialized on Pide. Do not expect much from ambience. Good for a budget lunch or dinner with the family. Pide served crusty, thin and tender.

Kule Balik Evi

Reviewed By ClaireIzmir - Izmir, Turkey

Bring you own fish from the market or buy from the restaurant fish stall just outside. Pay by weight and leave it there to be cleaned. Meanwhile, go into the restaurant, choose your 'meze' order your drinks and be brought toasted village bread. Go for beer not wine which is way too expensive and be prepared for children playing around their tables while large family groups enjoy a LONG meal. In good weather, the outside Seating is fine and you may get the chance to see fishermen mending nets or emptying their catch. Nothing very fancy but good value and way cheaper than restaurants at the Alsancak end of town.

Great location and amazingly fresh food!
Had fresh levrek, calamari and garlic prawns. The salads were to die for however eating in Turkey with a great ambience the only disappointing factor was the music. I would have preferred to listen to Turkish music, after all we are in Turkey. I would have appreciated Turkish music

La Folie

Reviewed By xiaolux

Alsancak has "La Cigale", Guzelbahce has "La Folie" French type brasserie.
Steak is very good and they know how to cook it to taste.
Pizza is thin crust and tasty as well.
Interesting wine selection, but few quality cognacs for a "brasserie". It is nice sitting with the sea view, or next to the chimney in winter.
One negative: Mushrooms served are NOT porcini but an other type of mushroom sold here in Turkey. They're not bad, but not porcini.
