i don't know why i did not bother to read the names of every restaurants, nevertheless, they offer almosty the same variety of food, so i dine in at one of those big ones juz along the gen. mithat ceylan cad facing the sea and people dining are all locals - both from amasra and local tourists.
as far as i can remember i ordered a grilled seabass (became my favorite somehow which started at Bodrum) and some salad.... and a loud turkish music being played that can even be heard by fish in the ocean.
i also eat some midya and shrimps at those tables and chairs alfresco at the open air restaurant beside the sea where you'll find many boats on the same road as the above restaurant.

i got tired after wandering around town when i arrived early morning in amasra, so waiting for the availability of a room at one hotel (which didn't become available in the end), i went inside a retaurant for breakfast, as usual the only available food at that early morn is turkish breakfast (kahvalti) which consists of freshly sliced tomatoes, cucumber, olives, 2 types of cheese, green chili (not spicy or hot at all), boiled egg, cold cuts, jams, butter & bread. i got used to it though, in fact, i'm missing it now that i'm back to my usual coffee only breakfast
I forgot the name of the restaurant (from the pix i got it appears like "Gun Batune" or sumthin like that) but it has an amazing view of the bay fronting it is a platform for a small boat and just before the bridge in kucuk liman cad. the restaurant seems like floating on the water and there was steps on the side leading down to the water.

pretty much the same as the one near the galata bridge in istanbul, the floating boat selling fish sandwich in amasra can be found at the end of the bigger bay in Gen. Mithat Ceylan cad., facing the sea it's on your left and far end, right before the start of the breakwater.
order a fish sandwich for TL3 lira and a soda and either seat onboard or offboard while watching people catching fish or the fishermen tending their boats and their catch.
Favorite Dish: what else... fish sandwich

along the street near the belediye (municipality) building, you'll find tables and chairs on the side pavement of the street and opposite it are about 3 stalls of small restos serving pide, hot food, soup, breakfast, kremit and güveç, etc.
I like their pide with the meat and chewy cheese at this place. try it at least even once when ur in the area, and it's not expensive, i paid TL9 for the pide that i find hard to finish (large portion) and a can of soda.
also, beside karadeniz ul find the only western-style (not sure) coffee shop that serves a good coffee - i forgot the flavour but it has the word "joy" in it and tastes like cinnamon, check their menu.

There are many fish restaurants in Amasra and Cesm-i Cihan is one of the biggest ones among them. It has two floors. We preferred to sit upstairs to enjoy the sea scenery. They bring a large tray of fish and you choose which fish you like. You can check the fish prices before you enter the restaurant. The service is really fast and all of the dishes we tried were delicious.
Favorite Dish: We've been there twice and we tried two types of fish: istavrit and hamsi. I don't know the English names of these fish but I guess it's easier for you if you know the Turkish names. You should definitely taste Amasra salad. Even if you forget to order, the waiters will never forget to remind you. We also tried the dessert that is prepared with yoghurt, honey and walnuts.

This is an excellent seafood restaurant which, as the name indicates (Canli Balik means "live" or "fresh" seafood), serves only fresh seafood that is in season in the area. It has been aroud, apparently, sinc 1945 and with good reason.
The seafood is excellent and it has a wide range, depending on what is in season. It also has a small selection of other foods like kebaps, but the real reason to come here is the seafood. It also has a very large selection of raki, raki being the traditional Turkish accompaniment to any good seafood meal (for those who don't know, raki is a strong liquor, usually about 40-45% alcohol, that is essentially neutral spirits flavoured with anise, rather akin to the way gin is neutral spirits flavoured with juniper and other herbs).
The place itself is very nice, inside and out, with seashells and rocks decorating part of the outside. it is right on the water, with large windows affording wonderful views across the harbour to the the Black Sea and the island portion of town.
The wbesite I note below is not the resturant's website, since it's an Amasra website and it is only in Turkish, but it has information, pictures, and contact information about the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Seafood, whater is in season.

I couldn't remember where we ate there but there were a bunch of restaurants by the sea. Our visiting time was spring, so also there were fresh vegetables for salads. Fishes and salads are my favourite dishes. And I especially recommend you to eat anchovies in Amasra. They are fried in a circular shape like pan. In this picture you can see a serving for 3 person.
The salads have spring lettuces, pickles, purslanes and they were delicious. Amasra's salads are really famous.
Favorite Dish: Anchovy and salad

Located right beside the town's main square on the western side facing Amasra's smaller bay (Amasra has two - large and small), Cinar offers a strategic position to enjoy the Black Sea sunset. Get a table overlooking the bay, order Efes and calamari. And enjoy yourself.
Favorite Dish: Food didn't at all matter to me. I came here for the sunset. But the calamari wasn't that bad if you ask me.

This place is packed during lunctime with weekend daytrippers. Tables are large, usually fit for a group of 8 (or more) so if you're dining alone, you'll be likely declined at the door. But when the coach parties have left and Amasra's all yours, come back and try their seafood - and this is just what I did. The sea bass was perfectly-grilled with all the flavors of the sea sealed in.
One thing though, I was forced to drink another bottle of Efes when the waiter got my order wrong. Oh well, blame it on my helplessly pathetic Turkish.

When you're in a coastal village with abundant supply of seafood, it would be a sacrilege not to try the locality's specialities.
As I do not wish to be irreverent and as I am a big seafood fan, I headed to what is regarded as Amasra's best seafood restaurant. It was a summer weekend and the place was packed with Turkish daytrippers, but I was lucky to get a table. Service was a bit slow, understandbly so, but as soon as my order arrived - grilled tuna with local salad - all that waiting was worth it.
Favorite Dish: Seafood, of course. Aside from the tuna, Mustafa's other speciliaties are barbun (red mullet) and hamsi (anchovy).
