We were a bit put off by how pushy the other restaurant owners were, and the prices were quite high (understandably because it's a very touristy location) - but the Balik Noktasi was more reasonably priced adn the manager was pleasant and chatty without being...

Very good and fresh fish, we all enjoyed our choices. The service was super friendly and we had some nice chats. I would say the prices were ok for the location. Very much recommended if you like fish/seafood. The view was amazing at night! Loved it to the bits.

Great seafood restaurant in Istanbul. So far this is the best place to try the seafood. Good ambience facing the river and friendly staff. The restaurant is clean and the price is reasonable. Good place to wine and dine.😊

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.
