More about Hurriyet Hotel
2nd best in Istanbul.
Rated by Hurriyet newspaper as the 2nd best meyhanesi ( meze and fish) in Istanbul.
Usual mezes available but especially the Lakerda (salt bonito) and the Arnavut cigeri (fried liver).
Supposedly not changed much for the last 100 years.
If the bottles of Raki around the place are anything to go by,it's popular with the locals.
MAP of the area albeit not excellent.
Open until midnight. Loved the fried liver in chilli sauce ( Arnavut cigeri ).
Something fishy going on here.
Great fish restaurant hidden away in a small corner of Kuzguncuk with great views across to Ortakoy and the changing colours of the first bridge.
Food is superb.
Been here since 1951.
8th on Hurriyet newspaper 10 best Bosphorus restaurant list. Great fish mezes and any fish on the menu.
Sounds fishy but not.
6th on Hurriyet newspaper 10 best Blacksea restaurant list.
Karpi sounds fishy but they just serve cheese and meat Pides (Turk pizza), Karadeniz and Trabzon and Akcaabat Kofte.
Dessert is Hamsikoy firin sutlaci, milk pudding.
Wednesday and Saturday there is bean stew.
Ferry info Either the cheese or meat pide.
Eat and enjoy.
Rated by the national newspaper Hurriyet as the best Meyhanesi in Istanbul.
I've been here quite a few times and wether indoors, outdoors on the street or on the roof, it's very good.
Lots of great mezes to choose from,then any of the local fish dishes.
Musicians walk around inside,outside or upstairs and will play anything if they know it but usually Turkish.Lively place with lots of locals who keep coming back as the waiters knew quite a few people who were in the place.
Web page not constructed yet.
Eat outside on the street or inside, then there's another 2 floors above that, then the roof terrace. The meze for sure,lots of choice,which they bring around so you see what you're getting before you order.

Question about a Byzantine building in Istanbul
I was in Istanbul last month and I'm writing a travel journal, per se, about what I saw. There was one building/structure which I believe is from the Byzantine period. It is at the southern edge of the Hippordrome, by the Column of Constantine. From there, you make a left down a hill--heading southwest--and there is a huge wall on the right side. There is an outdoor restaurant right next to it. If anyone knows anything about the origin of this building/wall (when it was built, what it was, etc.) I would really appreciate it.
RE: Question about a Byzantine building in Istanbul
Yesterday on The newspaper Hurriyet there was an intersting article about a rest of a wall. I think it is your wall. It is called "Sfendon Wall" the last rest of Hippodrome reached to our time. According to the paper the Rotary Clup of Sultanahmet are going to restore the wall.
RE: RE: Question about a Byzantine building in Istanbul
Emperor Septimus Severus began to build the Hipodrome in Byzans in AC 200 according to the muster of Roman Circus Naximus. Constantine the 1st enlarged the building. Hipo had the capacity of 30-40000. The semi rounded edge of the Hipo was called "Sfendon"
i am a brit currently living in a hotel in Istanbul and am desperately searching for a furnished flat/apartment that is of a good standard and done out in a modern way. Does anybody have any tips on area`s or better still, know of any going for rent, hotel life is driving me mental, PLEASE HELP!!
There are beautiful furnished short-term apartments for rent near Galata Tower through Istanbul Holiday Apartments although they tend to be heavily booked. The apartments are equipped with everything you need including satellite TV, ADSL lines and weekly maid service.
Call 0532 231 5730 for more information.
you haven't said anything about budget or where you are working, but good areas to look at are Yenikoy, Emirgan, Arnavutkoy along the Bosphorus and Levent or Etiler. These districts are a few km north of the city centre, but the metro is easily accessible. Easiest way is to get yourself there and go into a few estate agents (emlak) offices. These areas are more likely to have furnished flats which would appeal to foreigners... You could also look at Ortakoy, just past Besiktas under the bridge.....
Renting through an agent you will need to stump up a hefty deposit and pay commission tho.
an alternative is to be really nice to a Turkish speaking colleague and have a look through the small ads of one of the national papers, Sabah and Hurriyet both have extensive listings, especially at the weekend.
the noticeboard at the consulate sometimes carries ads for rental places too. good luck!!!
I heard that the appartments are cute, clean and tidy.
