Expert review of Doğa Balık
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.
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.
Pale blue chairs and white tablecloths give the basic room the feeling of a seaside café.
The friendly and attentive service adds to the experience.
On the top floor of the Hotel Villa Zurich in Beyoğlu's popular Cihangir neighbourhood.
Fish is served by the kilo at “catch of the day” prices, so be sure to ask before ordering.
