“Good quality fish restaurant”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Great selection of appetizers. Really good and fresh fish. Reasonable prices except for drinks. Covered seats with Bosporus view but close to noisy road.

“Even Less Than Mediocre”
Reviewed June 7, 2011

There are lots of fish restaurants at this district where Mer Balik is situated. It has nothing differentiating it from others. The view is the opening of Bosphorus to Black Sea, not the best one in Istanbul indeed, plus there is the main road between the restaurant and the shores. The food is definitely not of the best quality nor taste. Decoration is carelessly done. There is a TV set in the middle where people watch the news or football matches. The service is okeyish. Prices can be considered reasonable. There are many outstanding fish restaurants in Istanbul, this one is definitely not among them.
