Expert review of Doğa Balık

Fresh fish, wild greens, and a stellar view draw in the crowds.

This humble-looking restaurant packs in celebrities and members of the hoi polloi alike to enjoy its well-prepared fish dishes and panoramic view of the Old City.

Food and drink: 

With a name meaning “natural fish,” the seafood better be fresh and good, and indeed it is. Simply cooked fish and a huge variety of unusual greens – including stinging nettle, mustard, endive, and watercress – showcase the “Mediterranean diet” at its best.

Ambience: 

Pale blue chairs and white tablecloths give the basic room the feeling of a seaside café.

Service: 

The friendly and attentive service adds to the experience.

Location: 

On the top floor of the Hotel Villa Zurich in Beyoğlu's popular Cihangir neighbourhood.

Price advice: 

Fish is served by the kilo at “catch of the day” prices, so be sure to ask before ordering.
