Malheuresment le resto a ferme ses portes. C'est dommage Sadly, the restaurant is closed for good. The events that took place in Istanbul shyed away both local and international patrons from the neighbourhood. A pity indeed.

We booked a table in advance. The restaurant was crowded, but it didn't feel uncomfortable. It's rather expensive, but worth the price. The interior is lovely. You find cook books even with personal notes, which is super authentic. Staff is friendly and able to explain...More

Deciding on Maya for lunch when entertaining a guest was heaven-sent. Opening in May 2010 in the recently renovated Karakoy port area, chef/owner Didem Senol gave all of us a gift. Having studied at the French Culinary Institute of New York, she and her staff...More

Imaginative Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, especially the seafood dishes. The sea bream pate was fabulous. Very prompt and polite service, too.

Lovely restaurant in an interesting area near the waterfront on the European side of Istanbul. The food was so great we ate there twice in one day. Loved the zuccini fritters, The eggplant, the manti pasta and the velouté for dessert.

We very much looked forward to eating at Lokanta Maya due to the glowing reviews we read on Trip Advisor and elsewhere but left disappointed. Ambiance: contemporary. Nice interior, subdued lighting, tables could have more distance, but this is similar all over Istanbul, independent of...More

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,
