I went here with my girlfriend expecting a amazing romantic night, but we were both left feeling disappointed. Save your money and avoid. The food was poor quality and the service was bad. Once you’re there you can’t leave, you have to wait until 11pm...More

If you are with loved one - highly recommend to visit. Delirious food and romantic atmosphere, nice view from the island. Make reservation well in advance, especially if you want to get a table next to the window

Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on
the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s
most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek
colony, later a haven for people from across the
Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to
Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons.
Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by
its myriad treasures than by its many thousand

Once we had made a booking at the restaurant (Kizkulesi), they gave us a time when we could catch the boat over from either the Asian or European side. We did not pay any extra for this service.
