Horrible loud music along with a crap sound system that is even worse than many minibuses in Istanbul, destroyed our peaceful friday afternoon. When we asked if the volume can be lowered a bit, answer was a rude "no". Food is great, drinks are nice but what the hell is this music??!

Taps has been my usual Sunday afternoon drinking spot for quite some time. It's got a beautiful view, usually a nice atmosphere which makes up for awful, overpriced beer and very average food. Last night when taking my parents there for a few beers, the usual quaint atmosphere has been replaced with a middled aged man trying to use some... More

Very nice pub located by the Bosphorus. Reasonable prices for a relatively large menu, but limited beer options. I was expecting to find several beer brands from the world and more local beer alternatives in the menu. Service was OK, but the staff looked quite unhappy of what they were doing. You'd better go there using a taxi or public... More

Ok, so this bar is really overly priced but the view is gorgeous. The craft beer list is LONG, but it always seems that none of the beers advertised are ever available. I come with this expectation and have always had a good time. It's out of the way and I'll usually be there if friends have organized a work... More

Despite doing my homework we were dissapointed to arrive and find that no beers are actually brewed on site. The choice of lager and draft beers was ok and plenty of bottled beers.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
