Yes it is expensive but well worth every penny. We were initially seated indoors but the manager moved us upstairs outdoors when a table cleared up. The wait staff was courteous and professional. The seafood was very fresh and prepared with just the right amount of spices. I especially enjoyed the swordfish and look forward to returning again.

OK there is a great view especially if you sit at the front but there are better further up the hill. The menu concept is confusing - cold starters which are brought to your table to select. Not unlike a personal version of a 4* hotel buffet starter set up - then there are hot starters - calamari, octopus etc then the main courses of very expensive fish which is basically cooked and brought to you. Our bill came to around 500TL for two with a bottle of wine. There is virtually no finesse. The staff are friendly and there is nothing wrong but it lacks culinary flair which at their pricing should be mandatory. People were smoking all around us.

Fresh seafood right on the Bosphorus. Not cheap but worth the cost. Follow local recommendations; we asked for fish to be broiled or grilled, the waiter suggested cooking it in a sauce. It was so good that we ordered rice to make sure we could get every bit of the sauce.

The restaurant is overlooking the Bosphorus with wonderful views from the outside terrace. There are heaters and blankets are available if you feel chilly. The food, mainly fish is very good and beautifully presented. However, it is very expensive, top London prices. A main course alone can easily cost £50 each and so with wine and a appetiser or dessert the bill will be over £100 each. We were sent here by a local and on a Thursday night it was full of locals, we were the only tourists. The food is good, the staff very friendly and efficient but it is expensive.
