In the 18th century, the suburb of Tarabya, on the Bosporus, was a health resort for Istanbul’s aristocracy. These days, visitors come for the catch of the day, and Kiyi has been drawing the crowds since 1964. Design is unpretentious – you don’t need much else with a marina view like this one – and all 26 varieties of fish on the menu are pictured, for those perhaps unfamiliar with the likes of red scorpion and horse mackerel. Service is reassuringly old-school and the wine list pleasingly fresh, particularly the Turkish whites.
