“in the water”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

This was a let down for us. We were expecting something more grand, but in reality, it's quite small and could be easily missed given all the other things to do and see.

“Picturesque”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We actually didn't visit the island but it looked very romantic in the sunset.At the coast of Uskudar, the same restaurant serves tea (chai) with the view of Kiz Kulesi.A lot of young people gather there to watch the sunset.
