Karaköy Lokantası

At the docks of Istanbul…

Karakoy Lokantasi

This is a family-run restaurant located behind the docks in Karaköy. It’s elegant yet friendly and considered a gem by locals that frequent here. This restaurant serves primarily a Turkish clientele that are regulars so don’t be surprised if your waiter only speaks Turkish. However, this should not stop you from going there, as you won’t regret the amazingly delicious stuffed artichokes, grilled octopus or the lamb chops. And let us underline that the Hünkar Beğendi (Sultan’s Delight), the famous eggplant and lamb stew, rocks here. A dinner reservation is often wise.

Open for lunch and dinner.
