I love fish and all kinds of seefood but I belive fish-dinner has its own style. It is not like to other dinners if I am having fish for dinner. Dinner has soul then. Ambience! So I care about the place and the atmosphere. Here you can find 3 of the best fish restaurans in Istanbul.
Villa Bosphorus Cengelkoy
What I like most about Villa Bosphorus is the have a change to eat on the beach. I am not saying seaside. It is an actual beach with the sand. It makes the atmosphere with a nice view. Villa Bosphorus is located on a really nice area of Istanbul, Cengelkoy. Cengelkoy kept its nature and did not let the buildings ruin the nature as much as the rest of the Istanbul. Even though it is not a touristic area I would suggest you to visit for a real Istanbul experience. No visit to Istanbul is completed without a visit to Asian side of Istanbul.
Lacivert is one of the best fish restaurants in Istanbul housed in a historical seaside-mansion on the Asian side of the Bosphorus. It opened it doors at 1999 and it bacome a Borsphorus classic since then. Lacivert is also a special-event location. It is a charming restaurant with its view and the traditional recepies, forgatten tastes. If you are staying on the European side, you can enjoy a boat trip on the bosphorus just before the dinner and you can even book a private yacht and the yacht can drop you off at the Lacivert.
Eleos is for whom looking for a greek style dinner experience. You can choose one of the 2 braches of Eleos. Eleos Beyoglu is centrally located in Beyoglu and Eleos Yesilkoy is more close to the Ataturk Airport. Eleos name come from Greek means “mercy”. This beautiful white restaurant actually features meyhane culture. Eleos is a good choice if ou are looking for a restaurant serves Aegean herbs and vegatables, Greek classics and Armenian mezes and fresh fish&seafood in Greek style,
