Famed among locals and visitors alike, Rumelihisarı İskele Restaurant is located in the shadow of its namesake fortress on the very edge of the water. The restaurant juts out over the Bosphorus, offering waterside dining under the twinkling evening lights of the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bosphorus bridge. The front dining room has an abundance of glass doors and in the summer months these are thrown open to savor an unbroken view across the water.

 

It's not just the glittering views that make this place a favorite: it is also the excellent food, prepared by chefs Nuri and Mehmet who have been here since the founding of the restaurant in 1992. As is traditional, the meal is spread out over several courses, starting with cold meze options and followed by hot starters, finishing with a choice of fresh, seasonal fish. The patlıcan salatası (grilled eggplant salad) and grilled calamari are very good as hot starters and, when in the season, the lakerda (salted bonito) is also highly recommended. The dessert menu is not to be overlooked either — besides the homemade baklava, the chocolate soufflé is a firm favorite of many patrons.

 

Rumelihisarı İskele Restaurant is frequented by many Istanbul traditionalists because they know the seafood culinary traditions are well-observed here and waiters know many of their customers by name. Be sure to book ahead to get a table on the terrace and enjoy a truly sumptuous evening with friends and family by the Bosphorous. During the weekend, the nearby Borusan Contemporary (just across the road at the foot of the bridge) provides a perfect pre-dinner cultural excursion.
