Appetizer was good but the grilled fish was dry and tasteless.

Fantastic seafood at a reasonable price. The ladies even got a gift at the end of the night

After having a dinner here we explored other 3 restaurants in the old city but they all were definitely worse and more expensive!

We went there for seafood. My wife and I ordered a seabass and a seabeam. The portion was quite large. However, they seems to use a lot of olive oil (as if the fish was soaked in the oil before cooking), and I cannot even be able to finish it (is just too heavy). We tried fish three times in Turkey, and this was the worst among all three. The food was quite pricy too (probably because the portion was larger), and certainly not worth the money. The service was quite good.

We were tired one night and decided to try the restaurant in our hotel. We were very pleasantly surprised by how good it was. I tried a mezes plate for the first time, and loved it. The fish we ordered were well prepared and delicious. Also had a very good bottle of local wine. My only complaint about the place is that the service was really slow--although that seems to be the norm in Istanbul from our experience. But the food and presentation were first rate.
