Why locals love it

Would you like to experience Ottoman cuisine? Cibalikapı Balıkçısı is a restaurant that bridges the past and the present by combining traditional flavours with modern culture.

Why you should visit it

The food served here is amazing. It’s a great place to enjoy various “meze” along with Turkish raki. Try “saraylı” (fish marinated in herbs) and "enginar tatlısı”(an artichoke dessert). Keep in mind that it’s on the pricier side.

Special tip

It’s not a huge place, so book a table in advance if you plan on coming here on a Friday or Saturday night.
