A quintessential dining experience in Istanbul is to enjoy a romantic meal at one of the city’s numerous seafood restaurants on the Bosphorous waterfront. Tucked away in the ultra-chic Sumahan on the Water design hotel on the Asian shore is one of the city’s great fish restaurants, Kordon, offering a superb daily menu of classically prepared Turkish seafood dishes using the freshest catch of the day. Don’t miss Kordon’s selection of freshly grilled fish and shellfish, along with their superb selection of desserts to finish. The outdoor terrace is one of Istanbul’s most romantic dining spaces, with sparkling water views overlooking the Bosphorous. In addition, you can arrive in jet-set style by the restaurant’s private boat which can pick up guests from the European side of the river. Bookings advised.
