I know this restaurant for many year. Food , location and service very good. Generally we were very pleased what we had there. Actually price was quite high and I think this is because the location (bosphorus side). I would recommended if you do not have tight budget .We paid 530 TL (app. 130 usd) for 2 people and had...

Visited that place just once with group of friends. Ordered different stuff. All about fish. Location is for sure of the best. You will enjoy fantastic Bosforus view. But, our faces changed when bill arrived. Guess it was more than 200 USD per person. I do not mind to pay 200 p/p. But not for that food not at that... More

Myself and my wife elected to have a sea food dinner for our first evening in Istanbul and Park Fora restaurant was recommended to us among few others. Overall, the food was good, while service staff was a bit pushy ! So, to summarize, we ordred one Mojito and Corona beer, one starter and one main course each, no dessert.... More

Business dinner in the Park Fora which is a specialty fresh seafood restaurant with all fish on display. Service was attentive, food well prepared - and sitting right on the Bosporus the views are spectacular. It was February so cool, but the benefit, for me anyway, was that the smokers were cordoned off from the rest. But if visiting Istanbul... More

Great restaurant, fabulous service, lovely food, Wickedly expensive!!! It was recomended to us and could not be faulted for the ambiance, service and food quality but, charged for a 500gm portion of fish thst may have been 300 gms and at 140tl (40 euro) a portion this verges on a rip off!!!

Was very good food, clean and tasty. nothing about the food or the service, as the staff are polite and know how to serve you well. I didn't like the plate where the food came with, I mean you still can see the edges are not swapped. I mean in such place where you pay good money and has really... More

Clearly, this is a well set tourist trap! Just as in large number of other comments here, we were sent to this restaurant by our hotel concierge, and when we arrived, our table was booked in her name and the hotel's - backhanders seem to be flying all over here. This was our first night in Istanbul and we were... More

We were there with a group of friends. The views right on the shore of bosphorus were just marvelous. Strait-facing facade is fully glass so you can easily enjoy the views. This restaurant has two sections: the large inside area and the outside area. The outside area is also covered by window-glasses so in the winter, even if you sit... More

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.
