Restaurants recommended in Rough Guide

Just looking at an old copy of Rough Guide, the following restaurants are recommended::

Metin Pide

The Golden Crab

Atay Dostler Sofrasi

Hazir Yemek Place Kosem

Have they all stood the test of time?

What do you think?

Hi Vilecat, you have been reading these forums - and will have read how every year the chef from x moves to y, and probably the next year moves back to x!! By their very nature these sort of publications are out of date as soon as they are published - never mind if it is an "old copy"! Really your best resource is your own experience from last year, and add to that the posts you read on this TA forum from people who have actually visited this year - and don't forget to come back to post your own impressions!

And by the way out of the ones you mention (apart from Metin Pide - which certainly started off well and over the years seems to have gotten even better - and expanded in what they serve from what I read on TA - steak for example would never have been on the menu!) - Golden Crab (near to what now seems used to be Blue Bar) certainly used to be an old stalwart - especially for "crab" - supposedly their speciality!! Whether still there nowadays, sorry I don't know!!

Golden Crab was still there last year, and the crab cakes were still as good as ever!!! Definately worth a visit.

I have to agree with Attagul about the guide books, even the more recent ones are woefully out of date. Furthermore, in the areas I am familiar with, it always seems like the same few places are mentioned in each book, as though the information is copied - even down to the mistakes.

Haven't eaten at the Golden Crab for ages, it was one of the first restaurants we ever tried, when the lovely Eser was there, such a nice man, great food and he taught me my first Turkish words. He is now at Safran restaurant which is also very good. Will have to make the effort to eat there again. Also never eaten at Metin Pide, will also have to remedy that too.
