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

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.

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
