The restaurant was recommended by one of our friends who used to live in Istanbul. When we called them to make reservation, we were offered round trip ride from hotel and back to hotel. They were on time to pick us up. Everyone was fabulous. The food was great; the service was perfect and the bill was fair. Way cheaper... More

Excelent price -quality ratio for a fish restaurant. Not too many choices but each dish is excelent, fresh and prapaired in a special way. Really good service, kindness. At the end we were surprised about home made desert on a house and apple tee.

A beautiful dinner. Hunderds of words are not enough to well epxress my satisfaction at the restaurant. Surely not really cheap but great place, location and atmosphere. You would prefer to be there in the summer or autumn because you would love the garden but anyway it is great because of the food. All kinds of seafood, alcohol served, and... More

Fener Restaurant is right in Kumkapi but not in the middle of the tourist turmoil. You can eat a delicious and reasonably priced fish dinner and have great service with free pick up and drop off from your hotel. I have known the owners for years, have eaten there many times myself and recommend the restaurant highly. Great Job!

We spent three nights in Istanbul and picked all restaurants based on Tripadvisor reviews. Fener turned out to be best value for money, with delicious sea food and excellent service! A nice family run restaurant a minute away from the busiest Kumkapi sea food street.
