"My favorite restaurant is..." Istanbul Restaurant Tip by Karen-Claire

Istanbul Restaurants: 929 reviews and 1,244 photos

My favorite restaurant is TRIVANA.
This restaurant was just recently opened by a real fishing man from the Black Sea. Meaning, HE KNOWS HIS FISH. The atmosphere is nice, the service (Erol Bey is the head waiter) is impeccable, and the place is extremely clean. Perhaps most importantly, especially for those of us who live here, the prices are very reasonable. Two people can eat like sultans for $30.

Favorite Dish: Well, there's fish, fish, and more fish. Hard to pick just one. But ask for their helva for dessert.
It's a sweet (not too sweet, just sweet) dish, served warm, with a bit of carrot and cinammon. Heavenly.

Address: Yahya Kemal Cad. No. 9/A
Rumelihisarý - Istanbul
