“Free Pickup...”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

I was staying in Titanic Hotel Bayrampasa with my colleague for a business trip.

Reservation told us about this restaurant and their free pickup (2-way)...

By the way, they have variety of seafood as main dish and side dishes. They cook it well and you have a nice view to the sea and the ships but if you are seeking for a luxury experience, it's not the right place you are looking.

I really enjoyed their Salmon fish.

Note: If you are intended to use their free pickup service, ask them and insist them to obey their own promise. (finally they got a taxi for us and paid for that)

“The worst place in Istanbul”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

AVOID this place!! It is hard to add something else to the previews reviews, but there is something more than the terrible service, the mediocre food and the overcharge. We ordered a fish -that supposed to be fresh- and they said it was 128 TL, but when they brought the bill, they change it the 128 to 168 with a pen. It was a clear ripoff and an insult! Then they got very rude and start insulting us. Istanbul is a great place but this kind of places make a hard stain on it. Don't EVEN consider it, it's basically a scam.

“Avoid at all costs! Ripoff!!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

I could repeat and agree on all bad reviews written about Olympos on TripAdvisor, but I think it's better if I just sum up. We ended up with a 500? bill (for 5 people dining) that was casually hand-written on a piece of paper. Even after asking they didn't bother explaining the details of the bill. Horrible place! Stay away!

“Expensive for an average meal”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

First , the service was great. Everyone was super fun and helpful, especially since this was our first place visited after a long trip. The scenery, under the Galata Bridge, was enjoyable. We ordered from the fresh fish cart. Our starter, the prawns, was tasty. We ordered a whole fish, which was quite expensive. Unfortunately, it came out dry and over cooked. We were disappointed, especially because of the price.

“Good experience”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We have a good experience... good food, good service. We didn't use the shuttle service, we got there and we saw many Turkish people eating there what is always a good sign and was good.
