Reviewed 6 April 2018

This was somewhat of a hard review to do since we're from a city bordered by two oceans with some of the best seafood in the world, Cape Town. I had to put my preconceptions aside and judge purely from what we experienced in other parts of Istanbul. The food is tasty and portions are a decent size, prices on the other hand are somewhat on the upper scale if compared to other places but still in line with the other of the restaurants on the galata bridge. I assume the price is influenced by the fact that you will be sitting down at a restaurant at one of the most famous landmarks in Istanbul. If anything, I would like to see more seafood and less veg. Some dishes feel as though the seafood was there to make it a seafood dish but then bulked up with veggies. It has to be said though that this was mainly the case for prawn dishes. I speak under correction but I remember one of the most expensive dishes on the menu (which we did order) was a prawn dish which only had 2 prawns in it. It was really tasty but 2 prawns does not make a full meal. The best part of the meal for me was the mezze platter which was amazing and fresh. In the end we had a decent supper and a good chat to the owner and staff who were very friendly and that alone is enough to make any customer come back. The human connection trumps all things.
