I was there a few weeks ago during my trip to Istanbul. I went there because our hotel advised us to dine there. The food quality is almost okay but what a find a shame is that everything is done to make you spend more money than necessary. We ordered crab cakes (in the menu there is 3 pieces in... More

Came here with my parents and the food was so delicious we had to come again before we left Istanbul. The food is fresh, delicious and genuinely the best seafood I've ever had. The staff are wonderful and attentive and the atmosphere is amazing. I recommend it for anyone visiting Istanbul.

Despite a good menu we could have whatever we wanted tailored to our own needs. We had starters and main course and both were excellent in terms of taste and very plentiful. We were recommended...
