With one or two exceptions, there is little difference from one spot on Büyükada's row of waterfront fish restaurants to the next. The best bet is to look at a menu and ask to see the mezes and fish on offer that day. Food on the island is generally overpriced because everything has to be brought in from the mainland, and the heavy influx of tourists means venues have little incentive to stand out. Generally, prices are more expensive closer to the docks; the side streets further in have some cheaper cafés and eateries.

This restaurant in the popular Asmalımescit area of Beyoğlu offers specialties of Turkey's Arab-influenced southeastern Hatay province at reasonable prices. The short menu comprises fewer than 10 types of mezes and just a few kebabs, but the dishes all have intense flavors and are served with Antiochia's uncommonly tasty chili pepper–rubbed flatbread. Unfortunately, due to the tiny venue's popularity, the waitstaff tends to "help" diners (especially those unfamiliar with the cuisine) decide what to order and to rush service to ensure quick turnover—so this is not the place for a long and leisurely meal.
