“A very good restaurant”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

We choose this restaurant because it's located just opposite to our hotel.
We arrived quite late and saw its menu which stated a set just costs 14 or 15 euros. The prices of other a la carte are reasonable too.

The food was unexpectedly good and tasty, I like the seabass in saffron .

After being cheated from mostra a few blocks next to seatanbul, we decided to revisit seatanbul for a guaranteed good quality meal. And we found not only us, but also some of the customers were coming for the 2rd time!

Finally, the staffs are nice too!

“Poor service”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Judging from the other reviews it looks like we picked a bad night but we were not impressed by Seatanbul. The tables are quite packed in and although their was live music this did not really add to the atmosphere as the musician was rather sombre. We ordered a seafood platter, for which we had to wait over an hour. We asked multiple times where it was to be constantly told it was on the way. When it arrived it was missing the boiled vegetables advertised on the menu so we asked for this and were given a salad. When we again asked for cooked vegetables, some measly floppy vegetables appeared eventually. The seafood itself was of mixed quality, the seabass was cooked well but the tuna was very dry. We ended up leaving and getting dessert next door at a much better restaurant.

“I'll come back for a great dish and conversation.”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

O pessoal é muito simpático e atencioso. Fui jantar sozinha, mas adorei tudo. O peixe servido na cumbuca fervendo, a vista para o mar e a conversa muito esclarecedora que tive a respeito dos temperos utilizados na culinária.
Staff very friendly and helpful. My dinner in Istanbul was very delightful and enjoyable.
The staff has showed me the different spices used in Turkish cuisine... I loved it! I will buy these spices tomorrow at the Egyptian Bazar.
Good price and nice dishes... any kind of turkish food! I have tasted the fish and I will return to try their kebabs.

“the place that is hard to find, and will be impossible to forget..”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

It took us and the taxi driver some time to find the place, but when we finally did find it, it seemed average, but the food was great, seafood mix for 2 was awesome. The waiter was very kind and the service on overall was good, the more we sat there, the better the place seemed, the atmosphere was really good. finally when the bill came, we were very surprised, it is great value for money, i'd expect to pay twice or even three times more than we had to pay for the food and the service. i'd recommend this place so couples or friends' gatherings...
