Starting a nice and quiet evening dinner on a cloudy atmosphere, we had really wonderful time at By Sukru restaurant by the sea near the Büyükada pier. My visitors were deligheted at the wonderful atmosphere. Slowly by slowly Greek music started to fill us with the wonderful entrees and apetizers. We were 6 overall. Some of us tried beer and some of us raki. We also had a wonderful Doluca wine which satisfied everybody. The hot dishes of paçanga, kroket, fish balls, fish kokoreç were stupendous. The prawns cooked with butter were extraordinary. I donot have any words to explain the tastes of the red mullets. I can just say 'Try them at By Sukru'. We finished the dinner with souffle au choccolat and one sütlaç which amazed everybody. By Sukru is strongly recommended if you visit Büyükada.
Although the final bill was alittle above average, everybody enjoyed every penny of it.

The food was okay but nothing extraordinary.
What was shocking is that they brought a bill amounting to over 1,200 for a group of 8 people. Aparently, they charged ~$100 for a kg of fish, and each tiny plate of appetizers seemed to be priced over $20, while on the menu some of them were priced at ~15TL (~$7-8).
I agree with the previous reviewers that they really get creative with the math but if you decide to go there, I would recommend clarifying the prices BEFORE ordering the dish, especially for the fish dishes.
Well, that was the most expensive lunch in my life and probably I will remember Princess Island restaurant forever.... Memories are priceless, aren't they? :-)

The restaurant has a seaside view, which is offered for free....but that is nearly all. As a group of 15 (!) people we trusted an recommendation, but were quite disappointed, when we carefully studied the bill. We had told the owner, that we need bills only for each couple, which was obviously overheard or not regarded as a wish...the result was, that we had to study the one bill for 15 minutes and had to find out, that nearly all couples had more on their bill, than they had eaten or drunk....the excuse was a dessert for free, which really does not values against the cheating attack...never again !
