Istanbul – Very sweet, simple restaurant with a set menu. You pay about 40 EUR, but you get as a starter about 20 (!) different mezze. This is followed by two other courses and dessert. Wine and water is included in the price. So you better go hungry, portion are huge. There is a patio where you can sit outside in summer. The restaurant houses also about 30 cats that are waiting for a little piece to share with them.
Istanbul – Oertakoy, the place to be and a must while in Istanbul! For the Angelique you need to reserve about 1 week in advance. We were there on a Friday evening in October and could still sit outside directly at the Bosporus. The food was decent Mediterranean food with a Turkish twist but people watching and atmosphere satisfying even more. The Anjelique restaurant converts into a Bar and Club after dinner – if weather is nice only with a roof of stars!
Istanbul – Really worth going there for lunch on the terrace directly at the Bosporus. Order Mezze, also when they are not on the menu, this is really a perfect lunch accompanied with a nice Turkish wine while you are watching the ships coming and going……
Istanbul – You have to reserve otherwise you do not get in. Make a reservation on the terrasse, min 1 week ahead and insist on the terrace first row. You will have the view over the Bosporus, galata tower and mosque.
Istanbul – Fish restaurant in Sulthanamet area near the sea. Very good food and nice atmosphere. A lot of cute cats prowl under the tables, hoping getting a little piece…..you need a reservation!
