This restaurant is located near the grand bazar of Istanbul, the waiters are smiling and warm. Food is excellent and varied; you can see that the old chief has some knowledge. Prices are acceptable and totally worth it. I definitely recommend this place.

epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the

They did have local seafood on the menu but we didn't try it. I would think based on the quality of the other dishes it should be good.
