My wife and I were in Yildizlar the night before, although the price was a bit higher than the neighboring restaurants, the quality and service were very excellent. We really enjoyed our time with all the free fresh fruits, tea and coffee :) Mineral water and tax will be added to the bill, of course.

Liked the view of the restaurant good customer service good quality of appetizers good selection of music strategic place of restaurant, but over priced. We could go to another fancy place for the asked price. Shrimp is expensive particular.

I accept that the view was nice, not the best, but nice. But the prices for the quality of food and service was unbelievably expensive! Bad service, horrific food, scary prices. We had already gotten out food when we realized that we could have gone somewhere really nice for this amount of money.

Fantastic spot for dinner on the Bosphorus. We got a great deal on a lovely selection of fish and even came back for a snack a couple of days later. Definitely a great experience to have in Istanbul.

We ended in this restaurant as it has a great view to the city, but that's all about! Both of us had fish for dinner, which was quite good. BUT, one of my friends ordered a fried chicken (Wiener schnitzel), which was not a chicken exactly. For him arrived something really weird (not as was on the pic in the... More

So happy that we took up our local friends' recommendation and came here for a late lunch. It was a very pleasant spot under the bridge watching the activities of the fishermen above from below in safe distance from dangling lines. Delicious fish, good service, wonderful setting.

Just keep moving past all the other hawkers trying to pull you in and get to this place! My first visit and companions second visit. We loved their food and their can do attitude for the odd things we asked for. We had one dish of meat stew which was amazingly good and another dish of fresh grilled fish. We... More

It is one of the best fish restaurant where we had dinner. A lot of different fish and other seafood very well prepared. It is a little bit touristy, but not by chance, people recommend this restaurant. The staff is freindly, if there are too many guests the service is a slow.

A random choice that turned out to be the best food we've enjoyed during our stay in Istanbul. Not cheap but all the food (fish only as a fish restaurant) was fresh and cooked (or prepared in the case of the salad) simply and to perfection. With so many (all?) of the Istanbul restaurants serving the same unappetising greasy tasteless... More

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighbourhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
