Ayder Balik (Lokantasi Iskele Caddesi No.2/A, Rumeli KavagI, Istanbul) — is the ideal place for a lazy afternoon with good food by the sea. Tasty appetizers followed by the delectable fish is what makes this restaurant so appealing, not to mention the breathtaking view of the Black Sea. The mezes are all top-notch and the fish is as fresh as it can get. When ordering, ask the waiter what’s in season. Recommended items here include: Ahtapot Salatası (grilled octopus), Deniz Levreği (fresh sea bass), and Barbunya Pilaki (kidney bean salad).
