Liman Lokantası has a good view, average service and delicious taste. It's located in the centre of town, near the harbour.

This place was recommended to us by young couple from Istanbul as their favorite. The entrance was a bit hard to find. The view from the third floor on the Bosporus and the city is terrific. The service is good the food is good but not extraordinary. The location is a place to be for (mostly younger) Istanbul people. When... More

Go there for a good honest meal and good service. We paid 40 euro for starters, main course and drinks. There is no terras where you can eat contrary to what the pictures make you believe but the experience was authentic.

It is a wierd place to find for sure ... but once there the view of the Istanbul skyline and the Bosphorus is great. It is sort of like getting to an illicit speakeasy .... Meze good, main course fish was delicious. Didn't need the seafood course in between - deep fried squid was very chewy and I can't remember... More

E-mailed them and made a reservation, which they had upon our arrival.....From the cruise dock it was a little confusing walking there, but we found it ok. There was a claustrophobic elevator and so we didn't walk up 3 flights of stairs after walking around all day.... Restaurant is not lit up on the street side, and you have to... More

Food is ok but not has the same quality of view, fun&service. High volume Turkish music and belly dancers show is good... Good place to bring your customers or your tourist friends

As we walked up a rather run-down looking 5 flights of stairs, I was a bit worried about making this choice for our special meal with friends but am so glad we kept going up! Perched just above the Bosphorus and all windows. The decor is eclectic and a mix of odd/luxe but that just adds to the charm. The... More
