The taxi dropped us at the entrance to the park and we walked a hundred meters or so to the restaurant. The situation is beautiful, right on the Bosporous. There was a cool wind blowing from the sea. Service was excellent. There is a mass...More

Tourist trap, never go there. Food is very highly priced for almost no quality. Bad service, very grumpy old men working there ... we had terrible experience and would never come back again.

I tried this restaurant , the food was good , the fried calamari wasn't crispy as before. The sea bass was good. The price is too expensive. I don't recommend this restaurant if u are more than two people.

Very nice place located at the Bosporus with a very nice park. Service is excellent, atmosphere is very cosy, and food is very tasty. Price is high though!

View is simply magnificent. That's about it. Starters were boring (few fried calamari and baby prawns), the grouper was cooked perfectly but with no sparkle, no spices, no sides. Waiters were kind but aloof, not interested. I paid 320 lira. Too much. I had a...More

Visited that place just once with group of friends. Ordered different stuff. All about fish. Location is for sure of the best. You will enjoy fantastic Bosforus view. But, our faces changed when bill arrived. Guess it was more than 200 USD per person. I...More

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
