I visited Set Balik several times. The quality of the service is standard and you get what you expect all the time. I like that they try different dishes with the fish

Great choice of fish served in Turkish marinade and great choice of sauces. Simply perfect with a great offer and kind waiters. Parking valet service and small note: is better to make a reservation if you want to have a closer sight at the sea.

Meze. Variety if meze. Taste of meze. Fresh. Lively. Lovely. Fish is almost the same as everywhere at the Bosporus. No suprize. But meze is the signature of this place. But service level is not in line with meze quality. Standard and boring. Unfortunately. It...More
