Post conference dinner with a group of mates, all a bit jaded after a few days in the Hilton. Great selection of fish and salad appetisers, plenty of beer, baked fish main course good too. Waiter was happy because Fenerbahce lost at home to Bursa.

We ended up here for lunch after visiting the navel museum. This place is in Besiktas, well off the usual tourist paths. It has a fresh fish market at the front and specializes in fish dishes. We both avoided the offered mezze and ordered salads,...More
