Tarihi Ali Baba Balık Lokantası

Kireçburnu Cad 20–22, Sarıyer, Istanbul

Mon–Sun: 11.00–00.30

Still going strong since it opened in 1920 – and its obvious why. Facing the water (but not quite on the seaside), the air is casual, the food delicious and the service excellent. Altogether a very decent fish restaurant. Hot and cold meze, salads and grilled fish. Everything fresh with an entire fishing fleet at its command. Among the meze pilaki (beans) and deniz börülcesi salatası (seaweed salad) are particularly good. For mains, the place is proud of its swordfish kebab.
