“Excellent Fish and view but for special occasion.”

Excelent view and food. The service is supreme and helped making and outstanding firm night is Istanbul.

It an excellent restaurant with nice view but be prepared to pay for what you get.

Highly recommended.

“Appallingly Bad Value”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

Good food but overpriced by double. Also, while the inside is non smoking, the ventilation system somehow sucks all of the smoke from the smoking porch inside so you are inundated by cigarette smoke. Avoid this place.

“Fantastic Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Beautiful restaurant with a great view of bridge and water.

Wonderful selection of fresh seafood on display to choose from. Cold appetizers were presented at the table to choose from. We chose four to share-- all very good. Hot appetizers very good also. Grilled prawns were superb. Main course of whole grilled red snapper was presented on a beautiful platter surrounded with fresh greens and lyonnaise style potatoes. Perfect grill marks. Wait staff ably deboned fish and plated portions for each guest. Excellent.

Desserts were just as beautifully prepared and served.

Service overall was outstanding and discreetly friendly. This level of quality and service is pricey but well worth it.

One of the best restaurants I have ever visited.

“Recommended Fish Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Park Fora, on the edge of the Boshporus, is a good fish restaurant. They start off with a good array of mezzes and some seafood starters. Next comes seabass, seabrim and other seafood prepared in a variety of ways. It is very expensive for an old fashioned setting though.
