Seyit Hasan Kuyu Sokak 1, Cankurtaran, Istanbul
A day at the old city in Istanbul is never complete without a stop at Balikci Sabahattin. Walking the cobbled streets of Sultanahmet, you come across an immaculately restored wooden Turkish house where the smell of grilled fish grabs you through the windows. That’s the famous restaurant that appeared in the New York Times twice among the best restaurants in Istanbul. Choose from the cold mezes presented to you on a tray by your bow-tied waiter and for the main course, ask the chef for the best fish available that season. You will never regret eating at this restaurant where Istanbulites prefer to come for quality food ditching the amazing views of the Bosphorus.
