We live close by and we don't cook fish at home. When ever we like to eat fish we visit Hasan best, fresh seafood starters and main courses. Never regret to eat there, can't say it is cheap but if you compare with competitives I can say best price for the quality. Beautiful service you will love to sit in... More

All the best fresh fish you can taste in Istanbul is cooked here since 1965 !!! Try turbot, makerel and all local fish cooked in traditional or innovative way.

The steamed scorpionfish (Lipsoz) I had eaten was the most delicious dish I ever tasted. The service, food quality, wine were superb. The sea view was excellent. I knew this restaurant back from many years but hadn't had any chance to go for a long time. I was very happy to see that the food quality and the atmosphere remained... More

This restaurant has been reccomended by one of my friends who is looking new places with new tastes. What made this restaurant special for me is they serve very traditional Turkish tastes made by seafoods, such as Adana Kebab, icli köfte (a kind of meatball), pastrami etc. Apart from these new inventions exceptionally, fresh fish with wide range of options....
