Time Out says
Until now, those hoping to escape Beyoğlu’s crowds and noise, have found their solution in Şişhane, but let us make it clear that this street is another viable alternative. Kayıkçı Balıkçı is a meyhane-like venue with a small stage where ‘fasıl’ andlive music are often performed. As for the décor, they have opted for simplicity: the restaurant’s walls are covered in pictures and the tables and chairs are mostly blue and white. We recommend covering your table with the braised angler, seabass cooked in ceramic dishes, ethnic mezzes, and more. Turn Sultanahmet into a habit.
