Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Nice restaurant with high class service and fresh fish. Its near some yacht port with beautiful view. They have a parking place for guests too. The place is classy and looks expensive, but the prices are good about the same that we payed at other...places that are not so good. Highly recommend! We will be back for sure!More

Excellent service felt ver conformable, was offered a beautiful looking selection of cold mezze starters, I went with the Seabass which I was shown beforehand caught fresh that day. Even though the meal accompaniments were very minimal, the half grilled Seabass was cooked perfectly. I’m...worried that when I return home to the UK I will not be able to eat it again as it will taint my perception of how good it tasted. Would definitely recommend taking a trip to this place.More

This restaurant offers fresh fish and sea food cuisine. Customers get to select what fish/seafood they wish to eat from a large display at the entrance. Food us then cooked to order. Appetizers are limited but the eggplant spread is fantastic. While the food is...cooked well, it does not come cheap. Be prepared to pay US 75 - 100 per person.More

Maybe not excellent - if to compare with Meos that is near - but still tasty and nice. Tasty fish and frutti di mare, rather good salads. Nice terrace on the roof.

The food is good if you are sea food lover. Once they see a foreigner waiters are like mosquitoes-the pinch every lira they can. Happily the Turkish lira is so low that this doesn’t matter. The waiter forgets several times our requests, but the overall...feeling was OK.More

Dear Friends, please note that on top of service charge they will charge you occupancy fee 48 liras per person. And if you are not checking your bill they will add some additional charges to your total. Complete rip-off for tourists. Dishonest owner with lying...waiters. This place absolutely must be avoided by all means. Stay far far away if you wish to enjoy your vacation while in IstanbulMore

After having a mediocre tasted sea food (usually prepared without caring for the taste) you really feel like being robbed without at the point of a gun. They made name among the Istanbul High Society many years ago but now certainly in the decline era....Celebrities do not go there any more. You are alone with a exorbitantly high bill to pay while leaving with an empty stomach. Do not go there. This simple!More

Absolutely amazing, fresh seafood and great atmosphere! It’s not too far from the airport, so a quick business dinner or meeting is easy. Their selection is great and the seafood can be chosen off of an ice buffet and then prepared to your choosing. Highly...recommend this restaurant!!More

I don't mean to be negative but it didn't give us anything more than other restaurant we've been. Good starters, terrible salad, good grilled sea bass. Service was cordial always with struggle to communicate in English.
