Tel: 90 539 747 09 57's insider take:

Ask any Istanbullu about the best place to get fresh fish in the city, and he or she will likely direct you to the Galata Bridge, where a small market on the north side in Karaköy sells everything from sea bass to squid, mackerel to mullet. Pass through the market, and you'll come to a little park at the very edge of the Golden Horn, where three establishments almost overlap one another. For fish straight from the market and hot off the grill, Furkan Balık Evi—with tables right at the water's edge—is a good choice. Ask for the fish of the day, or go for hamsi (anchovies) while they're in season during the winter months.—Vanessa Able
