If you are looking to have nice relaxing sea food dinner, then this is not the place. Food is average and it's too noisy. There are several street bands who approaches the tables and play loud music. So you can here 3 or 4 bands at the same time playing different music. Trust me this is annoying ( and I... More

We got a 580 TLR bill and when we asked why they said that the bill should be $900 for the fish we ate. Bottom line the meal was not worth the price and I feel that they overcharged us in a sleezy way. And some of the fish did not taste fresh.

Visited here recently on several occasions. We were treated well from the start but on repeat visits were treated to free drinks and extra salads/fruit plates etc. Warm and welcoming staff, tasty food, central location and can eat out in all weathers thanks to clever patio equipment. Well worth a visit 😃

To begin with, we got this place recommended by the hotel. We were very positively impressed by the atmosphere and (how we later figured out) an "equal treatment" by the restaurant hosts. Equal in terms of - we were obviously tourists and obviously knew nothing so could have been an easy target. The level of attention was just right -... More

We enjoyed the appetizers and the main fish meal. The restaurant has a cosy setting outside, on the street side. A live turkish music and wonderful food made for a great dining experience, as if in a turkish wedding. Prices were reasonable and serving sizes good. Staff were attentive and helpful with the selection...

I feel so sorry for the local restaurants as there are no tourists. They were brilliant in service but the fish was a bit old as they need loads of customers to get the turnover. Please go to Istanbul as it is sad as it is a great place with few tourists.

We walked to Hos Seda dodging trolleys, dressmakers dummies and rubbish through the busy streets of the clothing district. We emerged at a pedestrianised six way junction, where everywhere is a restaurant tabled into the street. We were greeted and seated just inside the opening to the pavement. See pictures for inside and outside view. Staff immediately brought a tray... More

Forget about garlic, olive oil, parsley, oregano, basil, or any other mediteranian ingredient... You won't find any of those in here. Prawns in pepper and tomato sauce, cooked fish in vegetable soup.. Service is superb, place definitly worth a visit. Dinner for 4 = 400 lira, around 150€
