Ozan Devlen's Review:

Brasserie Rosemary – Balcova

Rosemary is an interesting place, interesting because of the location. It is located in the Ege Park AVM (Shopping Mall) which also host Best Buy in Balcova – Izmir. Normally the place should have a fantastic view of the Izmir bay unfortunately this view is spoiled by the highway between the shopping mall and the bay. There is a little bit noise following this view. It is also interesting that the place is surrendered by fast-food restaurants like Burger King.

That is may be the most interesting thing about Rosemary, it is a hidden gem in this unexpected place. You will be amazed by the taste and the quality of the food and service. It could be a different night if you are into Bowling because Ege Park is also the only place in this side of Izmir which represent a bowling alley. You can play some rounds of bowling with your friends and then enjoy great food in Rosemary.

There is a huge influence of the Italian cuisine in the restaurant’s menu. Steaks, pizza, pasta, risotto and also brasserie style food served in the restaurant with a high quality service. “A complementary platter arrives after you place an order. This consists of warm bread roll and 3 oil/herb options. The bread rolls will continue to be served as long as you’re eating them” which is great to loose down your hunger while waiting for the main course to come. The kitchen is situated at the end of the room, behind a wall of glass, every action can be seen; it’s fantastic being able to watch real proffessionals at work.

However the place is a bit overpriced regarding the location and this may cause some problems for them in the long run. You can compare the prices to the restaurants in Kordon – Alsancak, which is one of the most lively and crowded places of Izmir.

Eatinizmir recommend you to try Rosemary if you are around the neighborhood and willing to eat good food. We wish Rosemary good luck for the future.
