“Best fresh seafood in Istanbul - tucked away near the Black Sea”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

No fresher seafood, no friendlier service, no place more authentically fishermen's place than Kalyon Riva in Istanbul. The tiny restaurant is located inside an old fishing boat moored on the quay in fishing village Riva on the Black Sea. Let the staff pick the appetizers for you including fish manti, and fried crusteceans. Anything grilled is done masterfully for the main course. No matter how healthy you need to eat, save some space for the deserts. Take the family or your out of town guests, you'll be similarly satisfied. My vote is to skip the pretenders in the city and head to Riva.
