We visited as a family on the weekend. We decided to visit according to the reviews however taste of food was ordinary and we did not find an excellent taste and environment. Owner of the restaurant, Ms. Nigar was nice. Staff was not so attractive, when we arrived there was a table in front of the windows and they immediately... More

Before our visit, I read the comments about this restaurants from "Tripadvisor". I always read comments but I always give my decision on my own. For example if you compare the price with an ordinary dinner (like, coke-pizza, or Mc, or Burger, etc) of course it seems so expensive. If you go there once or twice in a month, you... More

It was 2 weeks ago i visited. The service was always delaying, we waited 45 minutes for a cup of tea after the dinner. But environment was good but i don't think that it would worth.

I think this place is overrated.. The food is OK not excellent, so is the staff. The water they serve with raki was not cold enough and they did not bring ice. They were not friendly at all.

Beautiful restaurant in the island of Halki. Traditional taste always prepared by the owners. Should try all their home made stuff, stuffed artichoke and -salma- should definitely not to be missed.

Many fish restaurants look alike in Istabul. As I was entering Mavi I did not expect to have a very special and delicious meal. They cook very interesting and tasty mezzes like mussels with saffrone, shrimp boerek and stuffed artichoke... Do not expect too much about the decoration or ambience and the service is friendly but just "ok". It is... More

I love this small cozy restaurant which is located in Heybeliada one of the hidden places in Istanbul. Heybeliada is an island that you can reach in a max 40 min lovely ferry trip. Then you will feel that you are not in Istanbul but in a different holiday place. In Heybeliada, you must try Mavi Restaurant running by a... More

I still dream about this food. The kaymak was delicious, the cheeses excellent, the eggs tasty, plus olives, cucumbers, and tea--all on the promenade by the Bosphorus. Not cheap, no. But a pleasant setting and quality food.

If you want to pay TL 15 for 80 gr horse mackarel which costs about 3 TL per kg in any fish market served by personnel who never smile, then this place is for you.
