TRAVELERS BEWARE!!!!! STAY AWAY!!!! THEY WILL SCAM YOU!!!

We found the fish house in an alleyway off of Taksim Square. We decided to give it a shot and we 100% wish we didn't because this restaurant is a SCAM.

We ordered Seabass(190 tl = $22.02) and the meatballs (60tl = $6.95) a water and local beer. The food was okay, however, it was not seasoned very well. Our final bill came out to 1,121.59 tl = $130 dollars. My boyfriend was so exhausted that he didn't notice until later. How does that even add up? The prices were clearly listed on the menu and if the prices were incorrect those details should have been communicated.

This place is a tourist trap and I can tell you that the only reason they have positive reviews is that they literally MAKE you leave a positive review. Our waiter pressured us into leaving a review and proceeded to stand over us until it was done.

Please avoid this place unless you enjoy being scammed. There are many other restaurants in the area. I will be leaving this review on other sights to make sure other travelers avoid this clear scam.
