Balıkçı Sabahattin is a world-famous fish restaurant located in Cankurtaran. Balıkçı Sabahattin, got two times the cover subject of The New York Times in the first three months in the year 2000. He is truly serving best fish in Istanbul. You will agree to me when you taste their “rice with mussels” and “Sabahattin salad“.
You MUST try turbot fish, loufer fish, rice with mussels, jumbo shrimps, calamari, sea bass marin and their special sauces. All fishs and other seafoods are being served daily and fresh. They have very rich starters that go great with the tasty wholegrain bread and the calamari is quite delicious.
If you are smoking Balıkçı Sabahattin has a private smoke-free part in restaurant.
Although on a bit pricy side, you definitely MUST try this place. Mr. Sabahattin and his sons are doing a superb job & if you are a seafood addict like me, then this place will be the highlight of your stay.
