We visited on 13th October to try the lunch menu by the invitation of Chef ÇiğdemAlagök. The venue has created a seperate lunch menu with more economic price avaliable between 12.00-15.00 pm. Besides, they have made a contract with The Fork. You can take discounts in different rates according to your visiting time. Actually Sardunya Karaköy has been operating for... More

Some suffering seasick will have the great advantage to feel being on a boat without the wakes; the ample terrace offer plenty of tables by the Bosphorus side with great scenery on the Asian side, Topkapi palace and the Leander Tower

Went here with business colleagues and had a prime window view over bosphorus watching ferries and other boats. I had the kebab which was delicious and filling. The dips were also of a high standard.

Sardunya is a nice restaurant with very good food. The panorama is fantastic. Though the prices seem a little bit high similar restaurants have nearly the same prices.

Good food, fantastic ambiance however a bit expensive for lunch. Can be a good choice for both business and romantic evening but book a table. Try the sea bass on spinach.

We were there for a wedding.. We reached early before the sunset.. We enjoyed the view.. But it was raining heavily and the staff did not accept to allow the taxi to drop us at the door so we had to walk under the rain! The food was nice and the service was good..

We had dinner at this place based on the recommendation of a local friend. The menu is not extensive but the mix of (extensive cold and hot) mezzes, seafood & fish, and, meat should satisfy normal desires. The list of local Turkish wines is good and worth a try! The food was really well prepared - if you are not... More

I really like the seafood and the service of the restaurant. The Bosphorus view is remarkable in the restaurant. I advise to make a reservation before visiting it. Levrek marine is very nice meze

We spent an evening here to enjoy the view of the Bosphorus. And, of course, we chose fish for dinner. Personally, I think the restaurant is a little too polished to me. But that is of course a matter of taste. Very good fish. And a fin view. But not a place I would visit again

Staying in Karakoy

Neighborhood Profile
Karakoy
Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most historically significant area, it’s currently one of the most happening parts of town as well. Here street vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks of the Horn where the views of major attractions across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions, such as the iconic 14th century Galata Tower and the Museum of Modern Art. A major hub for local and international waterborne traffic, Istanbul’s commercial and maritime heritage remains as relevant and evident as ever in Karakoy. Commuter ferries mingle with luxury cruise liners at its busy port, ensuring a continuously cosmopolitan flow of people..
