I came from Ravenna who was the capital of the Western Roman Empier when Costantinopoli was the Eastern. I was downtown for business and i was invited to that fantastic restaurant to celebrate. Very accurate service and delicious food and drinks server on top of the Bosphorus. Amazing experience.

Went there with two colleagues. The restaurant is very big but service has been quick and very good.
Starters are excellent and main fish course perfect.
I come from a north adriatic see town (Trieste) where fish is a must and I can tell you that this restaurant serve probably the best fish I've ever had.
Highly recommended! !!

Excellent value for money.

Delicious assortment of starters (meze), honest mix of fresh seafood - well prepared - but no fancy appearance on the plate accompanied by various rounds of turkish raki (liquor).

After a sumptuous meal the mandatory fruits and local calorie bombs or sweets go perfect with Turkish coffee.

Everything well done. Turkish dining culture is always a special for me.

I enjoyed this place a lot and would recommend it.

This was my second time here after 2 years and still they are good! Fish, shrimps, salads - everything was tasty.
The only thing - pomegranate juice was strange: either 50\50 with water or they squize it strange way.

I was in Istanbul on business and recommended this restaurant. The fish was very fresh and laid out on a table for you to review and choose. I accepted the waiters suggestions of prawns, calamari, red snapper and salad and each dish was beautifully prepared. I would probably only caution readers that if they don't eat fish, there aren't other options, no meat, pasta or veggie options. This area is only about 10 minutes drive from the airport however so a great stop if you are in transit and want somewhere close and of a good quality.
