A friend of a friend recommended Doga Balik to us as his favorite fish restaurant in Istanbul. Since this fellow lives there, we took his advice and found this small restaurant in the Cihangir section down the street from Taksim Square. It is located on the top (7th) floor of the Zurich hotel and has a stunning view of the water. We went at lunch time, so it was not crowded. This restaurant has a glorious meze buffet with about 2 dozen offerings. Then there is the main feature and that is a selection of the freshest fish. We selected the actual piece of fish that was to be our meal from the display case. Not only did we select the type of fish, but also the size of the portion. Prices are based on the type of fish and size of fhe piece. While it was being prepared we enjoyed the meze.
Everything was excellent and quite moderately priced.
