The first time I visited this place is over 2 years. I've been visiting Revma since then once in a while. And every time I leave the place, it is with much satisfaction and a full belly :) This year they started to serve also at their wonderful terrace. Over there you'll have a magnificent Bosphorus view and just a... More

If you need to impress that special someone this is one of the places to go. Revma is a traditional fish restaurant with a large selection of mezes and fish, big portions, and yummy deserts. Perfect service, fast, carrying, satisfying every request. And as a cherry on top- stunning view on the Bosphorus. This place is a bit higher on... More

We had been given a run around by our hotel and after a frustrating time trying to get into a retsaurant we didn't want to go to, we did a quick TA search and saw that Revma Balik had great reviews and was close to where we were. We could not have been happier. Perched on the river the fish... More

This is my favorite fish restaurant at the shore of Bosporus, located at the lovely small old time village of Istanbul. Food is very delicious. Especially the appetizers "meze" and the fish are great. They have so nice and tasty meze which you may not find other restaurants. Their special starters and deliciously prepared tomato salad is strongly recommended .Place... More

I was invited to this newly opened restaurant and went back 3 more times this month. Location is not as wonderful as some other restaurants which are right on the water but the appetizers (meze) and the fish is great and the service is very efficient and always with a big smile. Deffinitely recommended!

Great dinner on the shore of the Bosporus. We shared many small dishes (raw fish, spicy herring, salads, dips, octopus, ....). All the dishes were fresh - meticulously prepared. The servers took great care of full glasses without being obtrusive. A wonderful evening! Will be back on a private vacation with my wife.

This was my fifth trip to Turkey, and a local friend suggested we go to Revma Balik on my first evening. We were a group of six. Service was sleek, the views beautiful and the food leaving you wanting more and more. The beauty of it all was that we never ordered any food, it just kept on coming and... More

If you want to admire the Bosporus while you enjoy a delicious dinner you should definitely go to Revma Balik restaurant. And you should try their special tomatoes salad, jumbo shrimp and baklava.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
