Really enjoy the view from the restaurant terrace! Dishes (seafood) were delicious and well-cooked! The staff are hospitable, sometimes very insistent (but as usual in Turkey). Especially we enjoyed the conversation with Ivan - he was interesting and complaisant! So, I can recommend this place...More

You pay a lot for location and view. They tell you that you will get first drink and dessert free, but later when the bill cone it was not the drink you ordet that was free. Only wine free not Coke.

Three people visited this restaurant on a Monday evening dinner, the restaurant was not full. Staff were very courteous. The taste of the fish was really good but when the bill was presented to us we were in shock it was about US$340.

Maybe you're paying for the location (under the Galata bridge), but the meal was not worth US$45. Maybe something got lost in translation with the wait staff, but my grilled squid arrived fried (delicious, but not what I asked for). It took three different waiters...More

We went to the Istanbul Balik Restaurant in recommendation of our concierge. The restaurant arranged pick up and drop off. The staff were outstanding and very knowledgeable. The food was also great

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,
