Set Balik is a fish restaurant that is on the Bosphorus, but away from the water side (most bosphorus restaurants are directly on the water). They have good mezes, ok fish and not too high prices. But the atmosphere is extremely loud, crowded and unpleasant....More

I visited Set Balik several times. The quality of the service is standard and you get what you expect all the time. I like that they try different dishes with the fish

Great choice of fish served in Turkish marinade and great choice of sauces. Simply perfect with a great offer and kind waiters. Parking valet service and small note: is better to make a reservation if you want to have a closer sight at the sea.

Always crowded with people having their raki with delicious seafood appetizers, which this restaurant is quite creative with actually. Just let the waiter pick for you couple of them and you will never go wrong. After those delicious things, there will likely be no space...More
