Had a great meal and wine for a family meal. Plenty to eat and all well-prepared. However, check the bill and ask the price of things as you go along as our bill seemed very steep and we left feeling a bit ripped off...

the food is amazing, the octopus was cooked to perfection. The view over the Bospherus river ... absolutely beautiful. After dark when the lights are on both sides of the river deserves a photo or 2. Staff very good and very attentive

Good casual dining restaurant near The Grand Tarabya Hotel. Only fish, they do not do meat at all. Food was excellent, we tried the Seabream and was delicious. Buen restaurant casual cerca del hotel The Grand Tarabya, excelentes pescados, no sirven nada de carnes. Probamos el Seabream a la parrilla y estuvo esquisito.

Food and service both excellent and the selection of seafood based Turkish style Appetizers is large and varied. The atmosphere is relatively relaxed for lunch and more formal for dinner. The restaurant overlooks the very end of the Bosphorous strait where a new high level suspension bridge is under construction in the distance. One of the best views in the... More

I went there with my husband. From the beginning the waiter was nasty. They didn't give us a menu and he told us that everything was very cheap. Of course he was talking in Turkish very fast (we both speak Turkish) but we asked him to speak a little slower. Instead he left rudely and called another waiter. The second... More

It is almost a general trend that when you go to a restaurant with excellent view sometimes the quality of the kitchen and food is not fully in line with the excellence of that gorgeous view. In the case of Therapia this is not true. They are always good with an excellent courteous and smiling service. They never disappointed me... More

Therapia is truly one of the best fish restaurants in Istanbul, if not the best. The service is excellent, the price are in line with the top restaurants of Istanbul. The food and ingredient quality is always excellent. I have been there several times and not even once they disappointed me.

My review will run parallel along with that of TripAdvisor reviever Urlauber-1959; the location and the freshness of seafood are definitely good. Regarding the pricing of seafood, it is not ripoff, and that is a desirably treat when we are dealing with a classy fish restaurant situated on Bosphorus. Now, to the shortcomings. Firstly, the waiter who took our reservation... More

First the good news about therapia Balik: the Food is really good, no doubt. However, after you receive the bill, the evening might not end as pleasant as it started. I went there with 3 friends; we ordered 3 cold and 1 warm appetizer as well as 1 large sea bass for 4 persons, 2 beers and 2 Raki. The... More
