Seafood is one of the most important elements in the Turkish cuisine. Surrounded by water on its three sides and with an abundancy of lakes and interland seas; Turkish kitchen has lots to offer when it comes to the wonders of the Sea.
The seafood restaurants of Istanbul not only offer you a variety of Sea life and fish -sea bass from the Med and sardines from the North-; but they also bring you as close to the abundant waters as you can get without busting out your own fishing rod. That is most seafood restaurants have an amazing place as they either float over the waters of Bosphorus or face it with an amazing view.
Not to forget the essential aspect of "meze" in the Turkish seafood cuisine. You shall not go to a fish restaurant (and it is what they are called) for fish only. You should also dream of eating meze and drinking raki. Bon apetite!
