The waitstaff provide and absolutely phenomenal dining experience; they are very friendly and execute their duties as the professionals that they are. And the chefs culinary skills are spectacular. You pick the seafood from the case!!! The food is very well prepared and I cannot wait til my next trip.

I try to visit this nice, though humbly located restaurant every now and then, especially when I have friends to invite. Their specialty is primarily Aegean wild vegetables most of which you cannot find anywhere else. Together with a dish of seasonal fish and raki or wine, you'll enjoy your dinner at a reasonable cost.

Plenty of daily mezes and diffetent kind of fresh fish. Difficult to choose. Young owners are on duty. It is a quite big testaurant but service was fast enought.

For us one of the best fish restaurants in Istanbul...no doubt. An interesting variety of mezze (starters) and excellent fish quality. The service is friendly and very professional. The best "raki & balik" restaurant we had in Turkey. It's worth a visit to Bostanci. Highly recommended.

Cunda is a seafood restaurant. You can find more than 60 starters and fresh fish everyday. Must have reservation even week days!

We went to Cunda on the recommendation of some locals who claimed it is one of the better seafood restaurants on the Anatolian side of Istanbul. They serve a selection of mezes as well as fish and shellfish dishes. We thought the mezes were poorly made and the fish, at least those we ordered, we're not particularly well prepared. The...

Very good meze and fresh fish. Comfortable place even if a little bit noisy. A mandatory stopover when I'm in Istanbul.

food was amazing. wine list is limited but this is a raki place anyway. Their recommendations were good but waiters are always around tables and they listen. a little bit privacy might be better. they have a smoking section which is not freezing.
