definitely does not worth what you pay for. there are much better restaurants in the bosphorus coast line just a little above the price level of this one but the food is far better.

This is an unusual little restaurant on the watewrfron in the bustling suk of Ortokoy.
Whast is unusual about it is that I didn't realise that I was outside when I was actually inside..
The big old Plane tree which forms the centre piece of the restaurant is alive and well. If you go outside you'll see that it grows up through the roof and provides a canopy of leaves. Apparently Cinaralti meens under the Plane tree. Obvious when you know it.

Anyhoo, back to the dining experience.

I had a wonderful shrimp, aubergine and chhese dish (hot) for starter followed by a "Blue Fish", locally caught in the Bospherous, and a sald for mains. Fresh fruit for dessert and a nice bottle of wine.

The wine, as ever, though nice, was expensive.
The meal itself was excellent, the staff were attentive but not intrusive.

The surroundings clean, modern, with a plane tree in it.

I preferred eating here to the "nearby Banyan food for the soul"

Bill came to 121 TL which is around 44 GBP /60 USD. I appreciate its quite expensive, but well worth it!

Cinaralti in Ortakoy is situated in the middle of the bustling center of Ortakoy, situated near the famous postcard view of the mosque with the first bridge over the Bospohorus behind it. We take visitors here for sampling the Turkish food, especially appetizers. Very welcoming staff who speak some English as well. Price level is acceptable, they have terrace on 1st floor, with nice view if you can be close to Bosphorus, otherwise not that much to see (except a glimpse of the newly renovated House Hotel)
