We were given a waterfront table with a beautiful view of the Bosphorus and the ships passing by. We ordered several different fresh fish entrees and all were pleased with their dinners. Others hat our table ordered lamb and enjoyed their meals as well. We were the only non Turks at Sardunya. If we had more time in Istanbul we... More

This restaurant has a very beautiful seafront location which is decorated by beautiful red flower plants. The appetizers or mezes were nicely decorated in a dish and were delicious.Most of us ordered grilled sea bass fish for main course. It... More

If you have limited time in Istanbul and Bosphorus restaurants are too far, this is a true gem. Stylish restaurant with a good selection of fish and meat dishes, very tasty. The seafood crepe was superb, also the steak served on potatoe mash and crisps. The service is very efficient. This restaurant is a perfect place to escape the buzzing... More

Marvellous food in a beautiful setting on the banks of the Bosphorus. One of the very best meals we've eaten and certainly the best in Istanbul. No tourists - just locals who know a good restaurant.

The restaurant is located in a nice building along the Bosphorous close to the international hotels. It is not easy to find it among lot of old administrative buidings. The restaurant is just on the sea and you can see all the trsffic flowing along the sea. Food is really good and cost is reasonable (but high if compared to... More

When we arrived on the Saturday night at approximately 10PM they did not even check for my reservation and immediately tried to seat us at a smoking table. After explaining several times we did not want to sit in... More

Sardunya Restaurant in the Findikli area of Istanbul is a very well-kept secret. (Maybe the locals like it that way?) I hate to use the overworked expression "Hidden Gem", but Sardunya is TRULY hidden. You can't see it from any street. And there is no sign outside to give you a clue until they open for dinner in the evening... More
