Clearly, this is a well set tourist trap! Just as in large number of other comments here, we were sent to this restaurant by our hotel concierge, and when we arrived, our table was booked in her name and the hotel's - backhanders seem to be flying all over here. This was our first night in Istanbul and we were... More

We were there with a group of friends. The views right on the shore of bosphorus were just marvelous. Strait-facing facade is fully glass so you can easily enjoy the views. This restaurant has two sections: the large inside area and the outside area. The outside area is also covered by window-glasses so in the winter, even if you sit... More

Beautiful restaurant by Bosphorus Strait. There is a displace of fresh fishes on ice by the entrance, but pricey! Good food, nice wine list and very professional service. Beautiful view of of Bosphorus bridge, the Asia side of Istanbul.

It's very expensive and the food wasn't enough the waiters were nice but they were starting at us while we're eating which is creepy and uncomfortable too I would not recommend this restaurant for people with budget.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
Besiktas
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.
