Last night of the holiday and possibly the best meal. The standard of restaurants in Istanbul has been high and this ranks well in comparison. Good value too.

Very friendly service and excellent food. We enjoyed Special of the House - very tasty "frutti di mare" meal. Long story short: My wife refused to leave without getting the recipe... Thank you!
