“not bad but great view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

As is usual in Istanbul ,free limo transfer from /to hotel, food was average, nothing exceptional, rather on the expensive side though Istanbul is not a cheap place any more, service very good with lots of attendants around you. View is fantastic you are on Galata bridge over Golden Horn and Bosporus looking at the illuminated minarets of the city, Top Kapi and Ayia Sophia in the distance just visible. What was shocking everywhere in Istanbul more so at this place was the unbelievable price of local unknown bottled wine. In fact we did not take the risk for any local wine just for this considering that prices for local unknown brands would cost 45 euros per bottle for the cheapest !!!! Probably more expensive than Ritz in Paris, whilst local draft beer was charged at 8 euros for a small glass .

“Great location, best seafood ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

We were advised to try a restaurant in this area, and found it difficult to choose. We walked past them all, but stopped here as the fish on the customer's plates looked mouthwatering! The staff were very helpful and explained the menu system, then brought a trolley of freshly caught fish, which was weighed in front of us. They show you the prices per kilo for each while they do this. We chose for it to be cooked in salt and I have never had such a great meal! We also had a mezze selection which came with the most appetising dips, vegetables and fish selection. The best meal in Turkey, can't wait to come back to Istanbul to have it again!

“Pushy, but nice views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

Yildizlar

The restaurant is under the galaty bridge. A tad high pressure sales to get you in but it looks nice. Watch out for the fish tray, wonder how long the fish have been wheeled out for with various fingers touching them!
We just had a snack but nice views.
They just open a large bottle of water and pour without asking if you want it! (Only 4TL tho)
Offered a free drink and 20% off the menu price but only got the free drink and a free fruit dessert. Nice views & OK food.

It was very nice dinner, food fresh and delicious, very friendly service, especially from Fadil. Additional benefit - free pickup forward and back from our hotel was provided free of charge.
