Name change to Mr Deniz very recently so the phone number doesn't work. Dirty plates, off milk and service a little too unaware of when to clear. Food itself was okay, clean. Not what we had hoped for.

We had this restaurant recommended to us but it did not live up to its reputation. The service was very slow. While the fish tasted quite good, the accompanying salad and potato were quite ordinary. We were charged for bread and plain bottled water which...More

This is one ofthe most perfect locations to eat a meal in the world. Set underneath an old bridge with a cobblestone square between you and the beautiful Bosphorus, you can't help but be happy. The meals are delicious. I recommend the whole sea bass!...More

In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for
space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green
parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather
wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of
opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For
folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a
constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s
waterways are to its rich history, there's the
