Went here with my husband for dinner and ordered the mixed fish plate for 2 ...more like for an entire family! Each type of fish was delicious and different. My husband is a big eater, but we had lots of leftovers. The staff was wonderful, kind, polite ...served us complimentary tea after our meal. We thought the dish was a... More

This restaurant was near our hotel and was recommended by a merchant so we tried it. The grilled sea bass was dry (we have been ordering this dish in many other restaurants) and theirs was dry although not fishy. The grilled tuna was a disappointment, no taste at all and was grayish brown in appearance. The fried mullet was not... More

Average service, food is rather good but likely overpriced. Expected more in terms of cuisine because of the high ranking. Staff is very friendly.

It was great to find a place in the heart of Sultanahmet which does not sacrifice quality to lure more tourists in. Loved the steamed sea bass special. Normally meant for two people but staff was happy to prepare a solo portion for me at half the price. Going back again tomorrow!

Just around the corner from our hotel (The White House Hotel) the owner of the hotel actually walked us to the restaurant and introduced us! The owner was a warm, friendly gentleman who told us what we should have. If you decide to go, please please try the Sea Salt Fish dinner for two. It was amazing!!!

We went there on late April 2014 and were so impressed with the dishes. I missed the name card so that's why this post is late... :) Too bad we tried two kinds of the meals only and both of them were perfect!!! Beside the fish, we love everything in this restaurant. Nice design, good service and the owner is... More
