we went for a dinner for 8, and what came out for a rather average food was huge bill tip on top of it. since when istanbul restaurants started to quote 10% service in their menus?
the wines were extremely pricey and for cipora (fish) we paid 100 tl. seriously? isn't istanbul famous for fresh fish at good price? or this is a typical rip off for a group of expats (i have been living in istanbul for 3,5 years)?
on top of this, service was mega slow, we waited for approx. 45 minutes to get to the main course.
so, no, you can find much better places, with much authentic atmosphere (go to safi on sishane), for a better price.
