This was my second disappointment after a while, They used to have good fish meals while ago. Either owner changed, or something happened there.
What they must do is very simple, just have the fish from the fish market, clean the fish, then fry or grill nicely and serve it. Even, they cannot do very simple Turkish style basic fish cooking and serving. Never again.

Let's start with the pluses: The scenery is wonderful, during day or nighttime you are right on Bosphorus. The fish and other dishes are of quality. The service is friendly, quick and efficient. The minus is the price. It has become overpriced in the last few years.

This restaurant is one of the best fish restaurants in Istanbul , why ? Because of two simple reasons 1. They serve fresh and tasty fish that is one of the best in taste and service .2. The prices are so reasonable and you can say almost cheap , we ordered 3 fishes , 1 butter shrimp plate , salad and a fish soup with soft drinks for all(5 persons) all for 170TL it is about 47$.
Also the location is perfect on a bay in istiney area , if you are there don't miss it .

A fish restaurant located on the side of the bosphorus. The food is not of high quality, nor do the prices. But provides a nice view of the bridge and bosphorus from the balcony especially in the late evening time. Relaxing - peaceful atmosphere without parking problem. Service is a little better than nothing.
