In the centre of lively Ortakoy right next to thr mosque and Bosphorus bridge, the setting is excellent. This is matched by tasty food - good range of Turkish starters, followed by selection of fresh fish. All served attentively. Recommended

Ate dinner here in May 2016 with a couple of friends. It was well priced and the food was great. The service was a bit slow, but otherwise it was a good eating experience. Would I go again, yes.

I started to go to Çınaraltı 25 years ago.Ortaköy is a nice old fisher village. At the time there was not a lot of choice. Few restaurants and tea house.Çınaraltı is a friend always to remember. Smiley, not may be elegant but hot enough.

This long time Ortakoy restaurant renovated its upstairs terrace a few years ago. Reserve or arrive early or you risk sell outs of the more popular meze. It has tablecloths but down to earth atmosphere and fortunately for this neighborhood a very mixed demographic.

Five of us had lunch today at this very nice, but reasonably priced full-service restaurant right on the Bosphorus north of Taksim square area. This fish dishes were served very plainly but perfectly grilled. The meatballs were also quite good even though this is mainly...More

You must go to this restaurant if you are in Ortakoy. I was there for a week, and went there with friends 3 times in one week. Near the Bosphorus on the main square. Great mezzes and fish.

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

constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s
