“Fancy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Arrive by water taxi and you'll raise the level of the experience. Looks like a popular place for the local well-heeled and it would help to be able to speak Turkish. Our meal was good but not special in any way other than the water-side setting.

“Fantastic view with mediocre sea food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

The view is fantastic, no doubt about it. But the sea food was mediocre. All was fresh but could not find anything special about it. There was even an attempt to make battered fish which looked and tasted awful.

“and beautiful istanbul view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

If you want to eat fish with very beautiful view in Bosborus . this restourant located on the Anatolian side , right under the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge.
Appetizers were delicious. with steamed red snapper was not very successful. but okay.
I like sweet service . Service is very good, polite waiters. the car valet service .
Meals can be eaten at once visited and beautiful istanbul view. above 50 dollars per person, including alcoholic beverages.

“Traditional fish restaurant with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

We went for dinner so had a lovely evening view of the Bosporous under the Fatih Sultan Mehmet bridge of the European side. The decor is traditional, not modern, with many waiters serving very attentively. We experienced an evening with several large groups which may have had an affect on the delivery of our food. It took too long between plates, so lost a bit of the enjoyment of the food. The food was good, but not amazing, although the fish very fresh, and relatively expensive. The waiter was extremely nice an in the end invited us to desert and amaretto after sharing his life story with us.

“Brilliant location and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Went with a colleague and the location is amazing, on the Bosporus! The quality of the fish was amazing, very fresh and well cooked, including octopus and grouper.
Not a cheap restaurant at all, but worth it for a special occasion!
