My friends from Amsterdam recommended this fish restaurant, so we went without any hesitation! Perfect view (Bosphorus) and delicious food! Price about 30 euro per person with appetisers and main dishes! Ask for tomato salad with caramelised onions, Marin Levrek and Fener Kavurma! ;-)

What could have been a very nice experience was spoiled for us. Although the mezes, the fish and the view were nice, our food was spoiled by multiple other guests smoking. The room is quite small so filled up with smoke by even one cigarette. Smoking is illegal in restaurants in Turkey, but this restaurant facilitates it anyway.
Not recommended.

A nice place to enjoy fish + raki with the great Bosphorus view in Istanbul. Taste of mezze served in the restaurant is above average while the price you pay for food is a bit cheaper compared to other restaurants in the area.

An old building overlooking bosphorus. The staff are amazingly kind and everything we ate were fresh and delicious. Be sure to reserve a table near the windows or up in the terrace and definitely order marinated seabass.

In Istanbul, we have to eat fish with raki and you have to do it next to Bosphorus. OK. But where? There are zillions of places, but some are unfair expensive, some others are not good food. I love this place as it has superb view of the Bosphorus bridge, it has tasty meze & fish, it is old and has its own unique style, and it is good price. It killed me to climb 3 floors at the small stairs with my high heels, but it was worth. You have to go to 3rd floor and sit at the tables next to the window. To do that, you have to make the booking 1 week in advance...
