I notice that most of the negative reviews here refer to prices paid after getting the restaurant's card from someone at the Istanbul ferry dock.

like the previous reviewer, the well dressed gentleman offered us guide maps and timetables for the islands, strongly hinting the largest of the islands, Buyukada being the best.

After touring the island we passed by Ali Baba restaurant. The gentleman recognized us and we decided to eat there. He recommended the fish and we had a 1 kg sea... More

I went to princes island with my family this August. When we entered into the Ido ferry terminal in Kabatas, I noticed a person guiding people about the trip to princes island. He guided us as well which ferry to take and where to get off. I thought that he might be a member of Ido ferry, but at the... More
