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

My favorite restaurant is TRİVANA Balık (Fish)
This restaurant was recently opened by a fisherman from the Black Sea, meaning he KNOWS HIS FISH! The headwaiter's name is Erol Bey and the service is impeccable. The atmosphere is very nice and everything is extremely clean. Perhaps best of all, especially for those of us who are here living through tough economic times, two people can eat like sultans here for less than $30. (including rakı or wine).

Favorite Dish: Well, there's fish, fish and more fish. Hard to
say which one is the best. You can also try their Trivana Salata (Trivana Salad), a house specialty. But, for dessert, order their HELVA. It's a sweet )but not too sweet), beautifully textured dish, served warm, waith a garnish of carrots and cinammon. Out of this world!

Directions: in Rumelihisarı, just after Ortaköy, by the Bosphorous.

Address: Yahya Kemal Cad. No. 9/A
