They have never surprised you with the quality and the quantity… Always fresh fish from the sea, well prepared cold and hot starters… They don’t serve alcohol but always packed with locals… It is suitable for lunch and late lunch at weekends…

A nice way to get authentic food while near Ortakoy and Bebek, which are now quite touristy. This one is quite genuine, try the salad peinirli (with cheese) and the fried or stuffed mussels as well as the fish (my favorite is levrek). They do...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
