Elegant restaurant on the sea (almost true). Classic cuisine from Turkey, based on fish. I enjoyed their starters (great variety) and the main course (fish mixed with Vegs and mushrooms). Good atmosphere

We were there for a dinner with colleagues. The setting is magnificent and service inpeccable. We took the tasting menu, which is very good, but perhaps a bit pricey.

I absolutely loved this meal. Loved the fresh seafood. If you go, try the octopus, it's a must... I liked the view too, watching the boats go past, or the tour boats docking right across the street. I really enjoyed.

Its another classic turkish fish restaurant. Like Luna Piena, Bebek Balikçi... But more subtle and sophisticated. The mezzes are also excellent, and they cook the fish properly. If I go with turkish friends I know they will handle the situation, but when alone, you always...More

athmosphere is OK. right by the water with wide clear view in one of the most popular coast spots of Istanbul. However they charge way too much for the dishes. If you take some alcholic beverages with food you pasy at least triple the price.

In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for
space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green
parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather
wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of
opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For
folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a
