I had grilled sea bass, and we shared salad and fried calamari - everything was wonderful It was a hot day during Ramadan (Ramazan) so it was all tourists on the terrace, and some stray cats we snuck food to under the table.
The fish was super fresh, that baklava (which was on the house) was delicious - and I recommend it strongly!

We had an excellent dinner here with the freshest fish imaginable. The red mullet dish was a standout. Somehow dessert arrived without ordering it without charge. Good wine list. Recommended.

I did not remember the name of this restaurant and did not remember exactly how to get there. I just remembered that last time I was in Istanbul I had a great dinner there. So I asked around and thanks god found it again. I am glad I found it again as this is really an excellent place to have dinner.

This hard to find gem is perfect for those who like a beautiful fish grilled whole and served fresh. A real treat. Even my husband who generally does not eat fish enjoyed his sea bass. Appetizer, bottle of wine, 2 whole fish dinners, dessert all from 180TL (about $90 Canadian). Lovely!
